In the video I posted yesterday Angelina mentions the divorce and she handles it with grace as usual, even though you can hear that it’s obviously a sensitive subject. This clip above is just a short one and if you want to view the first one go to the previous post on this site.
This news is all over the internet today and that’s why I bring it up as well. I hope the whole family are ok and they will get to handle this privately in the future, if that is their wish.
“I don’t want to say very much about that, except to say it was a very difficult time and…and we are a family and we will always be a family, and we will get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it.”

Angelina Jolie has spoken about how Cambodia was her “awakening”, as she premiered her new film in the country.
The actress was speaking exclusively to the BBC before the screening of First They Killed My Father, a true-life account of the Khmer Rouge genocide through the eyes of a child.
She said she hoped the film, which she directed, would help Cambodians to speak more openly about the trauma of the period.
There is many reasons to admire Angelina. Not only for the talented actress she truly is and the person she seems to be – but for her endless support and work for people in need. She got an article published by The New York Times and especially during these times it’s a every important read!

I’m proud of our country’s history of giving shelter to the most vulnerable people. Americans have shed blood to defend the idea that human rights transcend culture, geography, ethnicity and religion. The decision to suspend the resettlement of refugees to the United States and deny entry to citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries has been met with shock by our friends around the world precisely because of this record.
The global refugee crisis and the threat from terrorism make it entirely justifiable that we consider how best to secure our borders. Every government must balance the needs of its citizens with its international responsibilities. But our response must be measured and should be based on facts, not fear.
