We were introduced to Angelina as a crazy chick who kissed her brother but we fail to realize that she brokebarriersforfemaleactresses that get thrown in the same type of roles. She’s played a diverse group of characters especially strong females who take no shit from anyone.
Aside for her amazing acting career, Angelina Jolie is a humanitarian who has done so much around the world. And this isn’t just writing a check out to a charity. She goes out to third world countries risking her life to help those less unfortunate.
And she doesn’t just hop on a plane, stays there for a few days and leaves. She goes to their tribes, lives in their homes, experiences the terrible living conditions. She listens to their stories and talks to them, she puts smiles on the face of struggling women and underprivileged children.
“Since 2001, Jolie has been on field missions around the world and met with refugees and internally displaced persons in more than 20 countries, including Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Cambodia, Pakistan, Thailand, Ecuador, Kosovo, Kenya, Namibia, Sri Lanka, North Caucasus, Jordan, Egypt, New Delhi, Costa Rica, Chad, Syria, and Iraq, to name a few, and most recently visited earthquake victims in Haiti on her latest trip to help survivors of conflict and natural disaster." - SOURCE.
Her and Brad Pitt have their own foundation which you can read all about in the link above. They also donate millions of dollars to other human-relief charities as well as organizations that protect natural resources and conserve wildlife.
"In 2001 Jolie was recognized and named a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador at UNHCR headquarters in Geneva, to help educate the public not only about the plight of refugees, but also about the perseverance and courage they show in overcoming all odds to rebuild their lives.”
So, yeah Angelina might have had her dark past but it’s obvious that she’s overcome that part in her life. She turned her life around and is one of the most beautiful and most inspiring women of all time. She’s an inspiration to me and I doubt you’ll ever be have the woman she is.
