Angelina Jolie Fan

EST 2014 | The Ultimate Angelina Jolie Fansite

Seems like Angelina will attend the premiere in Cambodia, I wish her all the luck with her premiere! I’m very excited to see a new movie directed by Angelina so I’m looking forward to watching it.

Cambodia’s culture-loving King Norodom Sihamoni — will preside over the premiere Saturday of Angelina Jolie’s film based on a memoir from a Khmer Rouge survivor.

Queen Mother Norodom Monineath Sihanouk and senior government officials also will attend the showing of First They Killed My Father at the centuries-old Angkor Wat temple complex, a spokesman for the government agency that oversees the archaeological site said Tuesday.

Jolie, who directed the Khmer-language film on location in 2015-16, is also scheduled to attend. It was not clear if her Cambodia-born son Maddox, who helped on the film, also will be there.

Two free public screens are planned at the site near Siem Reap in northwestern Cambodia.

The film is based on Loung Ung’s account of her survival as a child under the 1975-79 communist Khmer Rouge regime, believed to be responsible for the deaths of 1.7 million Cambodians from starvation, disease and execution.

Jolie has had an affinity for Cambodia since she began goodwill work for the U.N.’s refugee agency in 2001, and she adopted Maddox, 15, from the southeast Asian country. She also has established a foundation to promote social development in rural Cambodia.

Angelina recently interviewed the photographer Giles Duley for Citizens of Humanity. It is an important and enlightening read and there is no way that the photographs that they posted won’t affect you. What Angelina and others do to shed light on what’s going on in the world is truly inspiring and so very important!

Text by Angelina Jolie
Photography by Giles Duley

I met Giles Duley the day he introduced me to Khouloud, a Syrian refugee mother paralyzed from the neck down after being shot by a sniper, who lives in a small tent in a refugee camp in Lebanon with her loving husband and devoted children. I know that anyone meeting her would completely change how they think and feel about Syrian people and refugees. Few people will have the chance to meet her in person, but Giles’s photography introduces her to the world.

Different photographers can use the same camera or light, or all shoot the same frame. But what is different is the soul of the person behind the lens, and the moments they recognize and are drawn to—the emotional connection they make. That is what I love about Giles’s photography. Looking at his images, we can feel what he feels. It’s clear that he connects deeply to the human condition of people from all over the world. He himself has been through an ordeal. They say that adversity helps grow compassion, and Giles’s art certainly seems to bear that out.

ANGELINA JOLIE: You describe yourself as a “storyteller”—what is it about the nature and power of stories that inspires you?

GILES DULEY: Stories have incredible power. I don’t truly understand, but they have a mojo, a magic that helps us to comprehend the world and others. Since the birth of humankind we have been telling stories to each other; from campfires, cave paintings, books and film, storytelling is central to our culture and being. I follow in that tradition. I’m not a journalist—I don’t focus on facts and figures. I’m interested in our shared humanity, our empathy for others and the details in life that help us to connect.

Apparently is this story from August 30, 2016 but it was too cute not to share. Especially with all the negativity surrounding our Angelina. <3

You can watch a video at TMZ who originally posted the story!

Angelina Jolie shows up as the most ‘unexpected’ customer to buy giant teddy bear from two adorable 8-year-old twins!

Angelina buys a teddy bear from kids

Beautiful Angelina Jolie proved she is equally popular with kids and gigantic stuffed animals too. Find out how she graciously helped a pair of 8-year-old “businessmen” to sell off their 8-foot-tall teddy bear!

Tim Alexander and his twins, Allen and Brandon, were in Toluca Lake, CA, last year trying to sell 8 foot tall teddy bear for $50, but even after an hour of hard work, they and their bear were waiting for the first customer.

Here’s their lovely photo story!

The twins were on their very first business assignment: to sell their giant teddy bear.

Sadly, it seemed like no one was interested in buying their cute big teddy even after one hour of hard work!

But then suddenly, they saw a Cadillac came over with Angelina and her daughter Shiloh inside as their star buyers!

Tim said without a second thought, the super star made the deal and took the teddy. Angelina even paid double the amount, she gave $50 to each of the two brothers.

The lovely actress took the opportunity to chat with this amazing family, before the little boys and the entire gang helped load the super-cute teddy into her car!

Angelina’s small gesture reminds us all that doing good deeds is not too hard – all it needs is a willing heart!

Angelina Jolie meets refugees

There is many reasons to admire Angelina. Not only for the talented actress she truly is and the person she seems to be – but for her endless support and work for people in need. She got an article published by The New York Times and especially during these times it’s a every important read!

*And when you’re at it, read an article by Angelina published in 2015 as well.

Refugees are men, women and children caught in the fury of war, or the cross hairs of persecution. Far from being terrorists, they are often the victims of terrorism themselves.

I’m proud of our country’s history of giving shelter to the most vulnerable people. Americans have shed blood to defend the idea that human rights transcend culture, geography, ethnicity and religion. The decision to suspend the resettlement of refugees to the United States and deny entry to citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries has been met with shock by our friends around the world precisely because of this record.

The global refugee crisis and the threat from terrorism make it entirely justifiable that we consider how best to secure our borders. Every government must balance the needs of its citizens with its international responsibilities. But our response must be measured and should be based on facts, not fear.

As the mother of six children, who were all born in foreign lands and are proud American citizens, I very much want our country to be safe for them, and all our nation’s children. But I also want to know that refugee children who qualify for asylum will always have a chance to plead their case to a compassionate America. And that we can manage our security without writing off citizens of entire countries — even babies — as unsafe to visit our country by virtue of geography or religion.

It is simply not true that our borders are overrun or that refugees are admitted to the United States without close scrutiny.

Refugees are in fact subject to the highest level of screening of any category of traveler to the United States. This includes months of interviews, and security checks carried out by the F.B.I., the National Counterterrorism Center, the Department of Homeland Security and the State Department.

Furthermore, only the most vulnerable people are put forward for resettlement in the first place: survivors of torture, and women and children at risk or who might not survive without urgent, specialized medical assistance. I have visited countless camps and cities where hundreds of thousands of refugees are barely surviving and every family has suffered. When the United Nations Refugee Agency identifies those among them who are most in need of protection, we can be sure that they deserve the safety, shelter and fresh start that countries like ours can offer.

And in fact only a minuscule fraction — less than 1 percent — of all refugees in the world are ever resettled in the United States or any other country. There are more than 65 million refugees and displaced people worldwide. Nine out of 10 refugees live in poor and middle-income countries, not in rich Western nations. There are 2.8 million Syrian refugees in Turkey alone. Only about 18,000 Syrians have been resettled in America since 2011.

This disparity points to another, more sobering reality. If we send a message that it is acceptable to close the door to refugees, or to discriminate among them on the basis of religion, we are playing with fire. We are lighting a fuse that will burn across continents, inviting the very instability we seek to protect ourselves against.

We are already living through the worst refugee crisis since World War II. There are countries in Africa and the Middle East bursting at the seams with refugees. For generations American diplomats have joined the United Nations in urging those countries to keep their borders open, and to uphold international standards on the treatment of refugees. Many do just that with exemplary generosity.

What will be our response if other countries use national security as an excuse to start turning people away, or deny rights on the basis of religion? What could this mean for the Rohingya from Myanmar, or for Somali refugees, or millions of other displaced people who happen to be Muslim? And what does this do to the absolute prohibition in international law against discrimination on the grounds of faith or religion?

The truth is that even if the numbers of refugees we take in are small, and we do the bare minimum, we do it to uphold the United Nations conventions and standards we fought so hard to build after World War II, for the sake of our own security.

If we Americans say that these obligations are no longer important, we risk a free-for-all in which even more refugees are denied a home, guaranteeing more instability, hatred and violence.

If we create a tier of second-class refugees, implying Muslims are less worthy of protection, we fuel extremism abroad, and at home we undermine the ideal of diversity cherished by Democrats and Republicans alike: “America is committed to the world because so much of the world is inside America,” in the words of Ronald Reagan. If we divide people beyond our borders, we divide ourselves.

The lesson of the years we have spent fighting terrorism since Sept. 11 is that every time we depart from our values we worsen the very problem we are trying to contain. We must never allow our values to become the collateral damage of a search for greater security. Shutting our door to refugees or discriminating among them is not our way, and does not make us safer. Acting out of fear is not our way. Targeting the weakest does not show strength.

We all want to keep our country safe. So we must look to the sources of the terrorist threat — to the conflicts that give space and oxygen to groups like the Islamic State, and the despair and lawlessness on which they feed. We have to make common cause with people of all faiths and backgrounds fighting the same threat and seeking the same security. This is where I would hope any president of our great nation would lead on behalf of all Americans.

An extract from a recent interview by The Telegraph (UK) with Angies ex husband Jonny Lee Miller where he mentions her and that they are still friends.

“That” is presumably the Miller-Jolie coupling, about which little is known, aside from the fact that they met on the set of the 1995 film Hackers, and that for their wedding the following March, Jolie wore a white shirt of Miller’s with his name scrawled on it in blood – 18 months later, they were divorced.

Wasn’t the hoo-hah surrounding their relationship just as big a deal? “Well, there wasn’t one, because we were both completely unknown. Angie wasn’t…it was pre all that.”

So they were able to have a normal relationship without the pressures she’s faced since? “Oh, yes,” Miller replies.

Does he keep in touch with her? “Yeah – we’re still friends,” he nods, and before I’m able to ask whether he’s spoken to the actress since the breakdown of her third marriage, to Brad Pitt, he throws me a small smile that says: “That’s all you’re getting.”

Apparently the famous and very talented director will work with Angelina in the upcoming commercial for ‘Guerlain’. Something to look forward to!

So, it’s not that surprising that Terrence Malick, the brilliant filmmaker behind Badlands, The Thin Red Line, and The Tree of Life, is now working on a smaller scale as well. FilmStage reports that Malick has directed a commercial for Guerlain perfumes starring Angelina Jolie, and that the commercial will be released sometime in March. Not much else is known about Jolie and Malick’s collaboration but just the fact that they will be meeting for the first time in this format makes the (presumably) short film something to get excited about.

Actress Angelina Jolie is the face of Guerlain’s new fragrance for women.

Master perfumer Thierry Wasser drew inspiration from Jolie to create a fragrance that expressed the choices, emotions and dreams that embody femininity.

The fragrance is rooted in Jolie’s childhood memory of her mother’s love of a Guerlain powder. Mon Guerlain launches in March.

“We create perfumes for the women we admire,” said Jacques Guerlain, who created the French brand’s iconic scents Shalimar, L’Heure Bleue and Mitsouko.

Jolie is no newcomer to the world of beauty. She was the face of Shiseido in 2007.

Known for philanthropy, Jolie donated her salary from the campaign to charity.
