Photos of Video of Angelina Jolie in Afghanistan and Review of Changeling

Angelina Jolie Returns From Her Trip to Afghanistan

Angelina Jolie's Changeling hits theaters today — read Buzz's review here — but she missed last night's LA premiere. Instead, she was on her way home from her first-ever trip to Afghanistan as part of her work with UN Human Rights Campaign. Upon her return, Angelina spoke about the area's needs, triumphs, and difficulties, but mostly about the people. Watch a video of Angelina's visit to Afghanistan below. She said:

"The courage, resilience and quiet dignity of returnee families rebuilding their lives against the kind of adversity few of us can imagine shows the human spirit at its best."

Angelina sounds compassionate and well-spoken as always when it comes talking about her work with the UN. While her personal life still causes controversy, her philanthropy and human rights work is so admirable.

as an afghan-american woman, i am appalled to see her there. she needs to go back to hollywood and let the peacekeepers, afghans and aid workers do there job to rebuild my homeland and make it the great country it once was. we don't need hollywood actors there. go home angelina and stay there...

I admire Angelina Jolie...those who dislike her will say whatever they want but her humanitarian work will still look good in my book.

I totally disgaree with people bashing her for this!! Isn't it better that she is doing SOMETHING! It is a lot more than most people do and just because she's filming it etc.doesn't mean it's for her own publicity. If a celebrity can make someone take an interest in a situation then whatever! I don't think it's going to make anyone more interested in her movies. It's better she does this than nothin at all.

I think she is one of rare women in Hollywood who does what she wants and you can write 100 pages, she does not care. She is one strong minded lady!!! She is just not stereotype and brad loves that of her and on the other hand she is so warm and protective of her kids!!!

I don't think Angelina is a saint, an inspiration, or even a very good person, but I do like that a) she has actual talent and can act. she's not some stupid, talentless whore like Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, or Lauren Conrad who are just famous for their looks or their antics, and b) that she is going around trying to help in whatever ways she can. I very highly respect that. She's no Mother Teresa, but I do think she really cares.I do, however, agree with PinkPrincess - she needs to be with her kids, raising them and teaching them - it is so important that parents spend as much time as possible with their kids - parents have to take responsibility for teaching their children not only how to do basic things like read, write, etc., but also, and more importantly, how to be a good person...

I agree with Juicylemon. I commend ANYONE who give to charity, but we are not here to discuss the everyday person. And I've NEVER said that Angelina is a saint. Maybe some people think that every Angelina fan is Perez Hilton, who dubs her "Santa Angelina" on his website. I like her because she is human and she screws up from time to time, and she admits that. "Right away, that sends a message that those whom cannot afford to donate 30% are unworthy, where AJ should be sainted." It's not that you are "unworthy," its just that I don't see how some people can complain about her giving such a large amount of her income to charity. I'm sure there are many people in the world who make more $$$ than her and give away less. "As for needing mansion(s) ~ yes, I am making that plural, it's amazing how a family of eight can survive in a one or two bedroom apartment in New York." That family may survive, but that does not seem like a healthy environment IMO. I would rather have my own room if my parents could afford it, like Brad and Angelina can.

Ya know, people are being silly about her being a "homewrecker". Maybe she and Brad fell in love on the movie set but did not "do it'. Remember, he pretty much got divorced right away then they were together. people do do this, its real life. Sometime you are married to the wrong person, and you both know it, but you are friends. And then you may meet your soul mate and know exactly what you have to do. Get over it. Clearly Jennifer A., while a nice person she may be, is not that deep....look who she's dating.... I really do believe Jolie when she talks about not cheating because her father cheated. I'm sure she shared this with Brad and they decided to act quickly. People often fall in love without having sex, and people do fall in love even when they are trying not to. She does an incredible job bringing awareness tot refugee issues. I'm sure SHE would agree that she does not do what those unnamed aid workers do, but I'm sure she is doing everything she can to bring attention to the causes these people spend their life working on. such shallow, shallow concerns, a wrecked marriage that is years long dead.

She is one of a kind indeed. She is not afraid to speak and to live like she wants.

Maybe there should be a special section for non-celebs who does charity so nobody feels left out in our recognition...

However, this is PopSugar and Angelina is the topic -- maybe you shouldn't be so surprised that the focus is on her deeds. ;)

Is there a single person on this board that has, or will ever, donate 30% of their income to charity? A single one? ----------- When you are an overpaid actor with millions and millions of dollars coming your way in a yearly income *not including endorsements or any other revenue*, then it's sure a hell of a lot easier to donate 30% of your income to charities. So please do not try to compare her wage to the wages of the average working Canadian or American by asking us to raise our hand if we have done such a thing. Right away, that sends a message that those whom cannot afford to donate 30% are unworthy, where AJ should be sainted. Ridiculous. As for needing mansion(s) ~ yes, I am making that plural, it's amazing how a family of eight can survive in a one or two bedroom apartment in New York. Just sayin'. She and her family have every right to live these overly extravagant lifestyles if they choose to, as they have the means to do so. But don't expect everyone to take her seriously in her quest for the plight of the needy, when there are others who bust their butts every single day helping (taking them away from their families) and don't receive a dime or any recognition for it. She is bringing awareness by using her celebrity? Fine. Great even. Let's just leave it at that and then allow the others who are making a difference with their hands at least one shred of recognition and devotion so many of you give AJ. She is no more worthy then a mother and father working several jobs each just to put dinner on the table for their family, and possibly send them to post-secondary school.
