Angelina Jolie [1] left Brad Pitt [2] and her son Maddox at home when she appeared at a London photocall for Maleficient alongside costar Elle Fanning on Friday. However, Angie had her two men by her side when she attended the premiere of the new Disney flick [3] on Thursday, which was held at at Kensington Palace, aka the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's London home. While working the press line at the premiere, Angie talked about the recent kidnapping of more than 200 Nigerian schoolgirls [4], which has sparked public outrage [5]. Angie told reporters, "The important thing, though, is to understand that this happens because these men think they can get away with this and they can do this." She added, "We have to start arresting people for this, we have to start bringing them to justice, and we have to start making it an absolute crime that puts fear in these men so that they think twice about this kind of action." Angelina, who serves as a United Nations special envoy for refugees and has campaigned tirelessly against sexual violence in war-torn countries, also said that it was "heartwarming" to hear reporters asking her questions and to hear of people's concern for the Nigerian girls.
