Angelina Jolie visits Jordan to mark World Refugee Day

Jun 20 2013, 8:22am CDT | by

Los Angeles, June 20 (IANS) After undergoing a double mastectomy last month, Angelina Jolie has returned to her charity work. The actress visited Jordan to celebrate World Refugee Day, which is observed June 20.

Los Angeles, June 20 — After undergoing a double mastectomy last month, Angelina Jolie has returned to her charity work. The actress visited Jordan to celebrate World Refugee Day, which is observed June 20.

She travelled to the Middle East for an official visit as an ambassador with the United Nations, Tuesday.

The 38-year-old met several women and children in Syria and listened to their stories as they expressed the pain of losing their homes and loved ones amid the hostilities.

She also spoke with Major General Hussein Al-Zyoud, who helps control the border between Jordan and Syria, and called for more humanitarian aid ahead of World Refugee Day.

"The worst humanitarian crisis of the 21st century is unfolding in the Middle East today. The international response to this crisis falls short of the vast scale of this human tragedy. Much more humanitarian aid is needed, and above all, a political settlement to this conflict must be found," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Jolie as saying.

Jolie last visited the Jordanian border in December 2012.

Penelope Cruz Is The Sexiest Woman Alive, According To Esquire Magazine! (PHOTOS)

Oct 13 2014 8:04am CDT | Source: TV Smack Talk

Trying to pick out the ‘sexiest woman alive‘ must be like trying to pick out the best looking cinnamon roll at the donut store. Every freaking cinnamon roll looks amazing! Sure, there are some that have more icing than others, but that wouldn’t stop you from putting your dick inside the inferior ones. Wait, what? This is getting weird now. The point I am trying to make is that there are a lot of sexy women out there. The female body is beautiful. I am pointing this out right now because I kn ...

Did Angelina Jolie disrespect the new UN ambassadors, like Emma Watson?

Oct 13 2014 6:45am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Does Angelina Jolie have humanitarian coattails? I’ve always believed she does. Back in 2001, Angelina became a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commission on Refugees. By the time she got that appointment, she had already made at least three overseas trips to refugee camps and had begun researching the role that would consume her for the rest of her life. Angelina always took her UN work very seriously, even when she w ...

Jessica Chastain: Stop giving Meryl Streep all of the ‘older woman’ parts

Oct 8 2014 6:10am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Jessica Chastain got the cover of SO MANY magazines this fall. She covers the new issues of Interview Mag and Glamour, which I’m including in this post. I hate the Glamour cover, but the rest of the Glamour shot is actually really nice. The Interview editorial is all black & white and heavy on the lingerie. Here are some highlights from JC’s Glamour interview: On becoming famous in her 30s vs. at age 19: “I would have been a disaster. If I was 19 ...
