Angelina Jolie Tours Refugee Camp
Posted by Adam
ANGELINA Jolie has toured a refugee camp in Jordan for Syrians who fled the civil war in their country.
The actress — who’s the UN refugee agency’s special envoy — arrived Tuesday orning in the Zaatari camp, which hosts about 27,000 Syrians displaced by the 18-month conflict. She met Syrian refugee women separately and toured the sprawling tent city.
Jolie was accompanied by UN refugee chief Antonio Guterres and Jordanian foreign minister Nasser Judeh.
Mr Guterres said the “camp needs massive international funding” and its “conditions are still not acceptable”.
Jordan has sheltered more than 185,000 Syrian refugees – the largest number in the region.
The United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) promoted Jolie in April from serving as its goodwill ambassador to special envoy due to her work for the agency.
Meanwhile, it’s been claimed Jolie has taken another secret swipe at Jennifer Aniston.
The Tomb Raider star was talking to partner Brad Pitt‘s mother, Jane Pitt, who mentioned that she was very happy for Aniston and her engagement to Justin Theroux.
And Jolie couldn’t resist dissing Pitt’s ex-wife.
“Since Angie can’t say anything straight to Jen’s face, Jane is the next best thing,” an insider told Star magazine.
“After Jane offhandedly mentioned how thrilled she was for Jen, Angie said, ‘Please! She’s pathetic! But, hey, it’s about time. Sure hope it lasts, but don’t get your hopes up. Justin’s going to dump Jen.
“Then Angie made some snide comments about how she’d believe it when she saw it, in regards to Jen’s wedding –making it clear that she thinks Jen is a pathetic, neurotic mess.
“Jane went running back to Jen to report Angie’s comments, and that sent Jen into an emotional spiral.”
“Jennifer is putting on a brave face, but of course she has concerns about whether Justin is capable of being faithful. Jen is doing everything in her power to move forward and get Brad out from under her skin. But Angie’s right there, trying to throw cold water on her happiness.”
