We took a look back at one of Angelina Jolie's interviews from 2004 earlier today, but this week she opened up to CNN's Christiane Amanpour about her work in Haiti. The actress traveled to the nation devastated by last month's earthquake to meet with local UN officials and visit with injured children, but her conversation with Christiane veered from charity work to the Jolie-Pitt family and whether they'd adopt from Haiti. Angelina politely answered the question before returning to a discussion of Haiti's needs, but tell us what you think — was CNN's asking about a possible adoption a natural question or was it really off topic?
Last night in New York, some of the most recognized celebrities came out to honor everyday people who accomplished amazing things this year. The event was CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute, which featured performances from Mary J. Blige and Sheryl Crow along with presentations by Anderson Cooper and Tyra Banks among others. Ty-Ty did not dress down for the occasion. From a 12-year-old leukemia patient who made it his mission to register fellow minorities as bone marrow donors to a Seattle man who opened a clinic in Kenya to a teenager who developed a music program to help kids with autism, the honorees were an incredible group.

Activist Actresses Angelina Jolie and Meg Ryan got together with some very noteworthy women in Beverly Hills last night for the International Women's Media Foundation's 18th Annual Courage in Journalism Awards.

Obviously Angelina, Maria Shriver and Meg Ryan were happy to be able to host the women in LA last night, too. Look at that grin!

Entertainment Tonight recently had a segment in which they had Vanessa Minnillo don a fat suit, awful wig, and hideous outfit to do an “investigative journalism” piece to find out how beautiful women are treated compared to ugly women. She went to a club as “Ugly Vanessa” and wasn’t let past the velvet ropes, but as “Beautiful Vanessa” in a blonde wig, she and her friends were let in and given VIP treatment. The revelation? Pretty people have it better. Giggle Girls, is Vanessa’s “investigative journalism” piece...
