Quotes from Others

“I think that Angelina is a very courageous woman. She’s not a reclusive. She’s out there. She wants to help people, her sisters. She is taking what has happened in her life and leveraging her high-profile celebrity for the greater good. And I applaud her for that. Because if you’re a celebrity and you don’t leverage it for something, some message that’s for the greater good, you’ve wasted it.”

Can you believe that? I made Angelina Jolie almost cry! But then the best was when she said that she recognized me from Welcome to The Dollhouse and then she got me all teary!
