Pictures of Angelina Jolie at a Press Conference in Pakistan Discussing Flooding

Angelina Brings More Attention to Flooding With a Pakistan Press Conference

Angelina Jolie continued her work in Pakistan this morning by hosting a press conference in Islamabad. She's in the country to draw attention to the plight of those displaced from their homes due to flooding, and yesterday she toured a camp that shelters some of the affected people. The suffering Angelina has seen on her visit has brought her to tears, but she's optimistic that the press she attracts could help. She said, "There's lots of speculation about why this one has not gotten the attention it deserves. Even all of the wonderful coverage . . . is not getting the response that usually it's able to get." She also spoke about a Florida church's controversial plans to mark Sept. 11 by burning the Islamic holy book the Koran, saying, "I have hardly the words that somebody would do that to somebody's religious book."

A lot of the comments on this post are sad. Like seriously, who the FUCK cares what her intentions are. The point is shes getting the word across in the way that makes sense the most..talking to the press. This post is NOT about her, its the cause. Don't let your obsession with her life blind you. And anyway, I don;t think anyone with bad intentions would go through such lengths.

Of course this is a photo op., haters have had their brains damaged by hate and now the obvious is needed to be stated. As the UN ambassador, Angelina's job is to bring attention to diastases, this would include cameras and any other form of media. She has donated money, you would know this if celebrity gossip sites weren't your only source of news. And you would also know that the money and aids such as food and medical supplies are being withheld or mishandled by the shady government there. If the spotlight is put on this crisis, the people who desperately need the help will more likely get it because their government will know the world is watching. Which is where Angelina comes in. She's wearing a veil because it's the cultural dress code there, she is being respectful, something some people here might not know too much about.Why don't the few and very regular Aniston fans go over to the only few sad Aniston posts and support them instead of trolling a women you "claim" to hate but have proven you are obsessed about.

BTW I guess Christaine Amounpour wanted to look like Mother Theresa too since she wore the same hajib in the same color recently.it's called hijab and no, she is NOT wearing hijab. she is wearing a dupatta, which is a common diaphanous scarf worn on the head and shoulders in pakistan. devout muslim women cover their heads with it at the masjid or in the company of men. hijab coverings are traditionally worn by arab women and conservatives in other countries...

LOL at the virgin Mary comment. The virgin Mary wore a veil for religious reasons, the same reason Muslim women wear a veil today...they pretty much ALL wear it like the virgin Mary.

dude, I could've loaned her my 6yr old Halloween costume, complete with the Halo so she could really look like a saint..ok, serious note: I don't like this chick - at all...but when I did, it was solely because she cared enough about certain issues to go to other countries and try to bring awareness....I literally dissed her yesterday I think but today, a new day, as I stare out the window onto 9th Ave, I am NOT and never will do anything besides write a check to the United Way foundation...so kudos b/c at any time she could be hurt or killed I assume...her security can't do anything against a damn bomb or whatever else...whatever this witch has done will surely come back to her but I will curb my sarcasm when she's doing THIS and I'm on Sephora.com trying to find the best facial primer for girls who don't need foundation or powder

i understand celebrities going and raising awareness for causes that no one knows about, but i doubt anyone has not heard about the pakistan flood.. if the devastating pictures of the affected are not cajoling people into donating, i highly doubt a picture of a celebrity galvanizing in that area will (if it does, something is really messed up with society).. she wants to help she can donate money, her photo-ops have become painful now
