Three Things I Like About Angelina Jolie
No, it's not the leg, her dress or Brad Pitt. These are the things I like about her:
1. Since 2001 she is the Goodwill Ambassador for UNHCR. UNHCR (www.unhcr.com) is a United Nations organization that provides help to refugee people. About this she wrote ""What was really shocking was that every individual person you meet will tell you that their immediate family was [affected]. Somebody's child was killed, somebody's husband. Someone was beaten."
2. When she travels for UNHCR she pays for her plane ticket. It is really a voluntary work she does.
3. She wrote and directed her first movie about the fate of Bosnian women during the war. In the Land of Blood and Honey was criticized by both Bosnian and Serbians and Angelina received death threats. Nevertheless, most of the reviews I read (I didn't watch the movie yet) are positive. Tackling such a sensitive issue as the war in former Yugoslavia is an act of courage.
