Photos of Angelina Jolie at Trial For Congolese Warlord in The Hauge, Netherlands

Angelina Will Go From Activist Back to A-Lister

While Brad Pitt has been hitting the movie theater and gearing up for Cannes, Angelina Jolie is already abroad for a more serious cause. She visited The Hague in the Netherlands today to witness the trial of Thomas Lubanga, a Congolese warlord facing charges of using child soldiers. Angelina called it a "landmark trial for children," and her roles as both mother and activist make it no surprise that she made it a point to be there. While today she's focused on civil rights, tomorrow she'll be slipping back into her movie star shoes as she gets glamorous to join Brad on the red carpet.

WTF is up with all these anonymous comments? Everyone knows my stance for no reason to reiterate, I do have to applaud what she is doing. To the people who are taking issue with this, can anyone think of another celebrity that will go out of their way for such cause? It might be a publicity stunt but hey it has us all talking.

:rotfl: Sad how some people hold so much hatred and jealousy towards Angelina that they can't resist any opportunity to belittle anything she does, even when her efforts are helping others. It's a weird level of obsession--this need to constantly tell everyone with a positive word how misled they are, because of course only the fanistons know the real truth. Delusions of grandeur. Fortunately Angelina doesn't give a **** what the they think.

Arghhh, this winds me up so much! Donate some (ok, a lot but heck, she can afford to) to charity, go on a few excursions to photogenic 3rd world countries, have your photo taken with some cute kinds and that's enough to earn you an invitation to the the Hague? This really makes a mockery of all the people who actually work hard, day in day out, to fight injustices. I guess in our f*cked up, celeb-obsessed world, it really is enough to be a beautiful and successful movie star. I can't stand how her fans think she's actually drawing awareness, or bringing attention or doing something worthwhile when the fact is that this is simply an ego-boost for her. She loves how all this humanitarian work is making the public admire her and it makes me sick! Frankly, if angelina jolie is your resource of information, without which you wouldn;t know what's going on in the world, than it's a really sad state of affairs...

A lot of of commenters who have defended Angelina basically said most of it for me. Whatever you feel about her, when her time on this earth is over she'll still have done more for it and the people on it, than the majority of us on this site put together. With that, all that I have left to say is well done, Angelina.

Understandable that this a celeb/gossip site but what her endeavors are today does not merit all this tirade towards her. Can some of you for once admire her efforts.

I wonder how many of the miscreants complaining here ever heard of Thomas Lubanga before this, or knew about the trial, or even gave 2 minutes of thought about what it means to be a child soldier. I'd say her job of bringing awareness to the issue was well done today.

my goodness. look at all the nasty comments. and surprise! mostly from ANONYMOUS comments. interesting how they come to this site in droves any time there's a mention of angelina. it still amazes me how much hatred some women have for angelina. you can dislike a celebrity, but to have pent up, intense, personal aggression towards a movie star is comical ... and pathetic. I LOVE how angelina gets you riled up, go gaga, and get your panties in a bunch !
