Angelina Jolie has nothing but good words to say about the Queen
The actress appears in a documentary which features the Queen and Sir David Attenborough
Angelina Jolie has described the Queen as a “lovely lady who really cares about people around the world” in upcoming documentary The Queen’s Green Planet about Her Majesty’s plans to protect the environment. The programme also stars David Attenborough.
Jolie – who goes to Namibia with her six children in the documentary to highlight the importance of forest conservation in Africa – explained what she told her young family when they asked why the Queen believes strongly in preserving nature.
“What it comes down to it you say to the kids, ‘You know really, you don’t know her, you can’t understand all that it means to be a queen and all that,'” says Jolie.
“But you try to say, ‘You know she’s just this really lovely lady who really cares about people around the world, and she really cares about the future, and she wants your grandkids and her grandkids to be able to be running around, enjoying nature and other cultures, and the importance of other cultures.
4 Ways That Angelina Jolie Inspires Women
A decade ago, Angelina Jolie was just another Hollywood A-lister. In fact, being from an acting family herself, she represented a side of Hollywood which, at least from the outside, seems to be even more privileged and pampered than regular Hollywood. To have called Angelina Jolie a ‘role model’ at that stage of her life would have seemed, perhaps, a little over the top.
Of course, Jolie is a talented woman, her success is not just about her family connections. Many women have looked up to Angelina Jolie since her career first hit the big time. However, it is only relatively recently that her philanthropy and activism have attained an undeniable level of legitimacy.
Whenever a Hollywood star steps out of the limelight to pursue philanthropic projects, their efforts are often met with a degree of skepticism and mistrust. However, in the case of Angelina Jolie, she has repeatedly shown herself to be the genuine article. She is articulate and knowledgeable about the various subjects that she speaks on. As a result, she has done a great deal to further conversations surrounding a variety of women’s issues.
Speaking Out Against Rape and Sexual Violence
Long before the #MeToo movement got started, Angelina Jolie was giving talks at international forums, including the United Nations, highlighting the plight of women around the world who face the daily threat of sexual violence. Jolie has been vocal on a number of humanitarian issues, but she was one of the first celebrities to call attention to the plight of women around the world, not just in the United States.
Adopting a Child Alone
When Angelina Jolie first made plans to adopt Maddox, an orphan from Cambodia, she planned to do so with her then-husband – Billy Bob Thornton. However, the couple split. This didn’t stop Jolie; she pressed ahead with the adoption process and raised him by herself until she met Brad Pitt.
Raising a child as a single parent is tough. A quick glance at the parenting section of Mantasticpursuits.com will reveal to you a plethora of challenges that parents, especially single parents, face. The fact that the parenting challenges facing single fathers match those faced by single women illustrates how universally challenging the experience is.
Excelling in Her Field
Angelina Jolie isn’t just a successful actress; she has also proven herself to be a very capable director with two critically acclaimed war dramas under her belt now. It wasn’t all smooth sailing for Jolie as she made the transition from actor to director, however, she has proven herself to be just as formidable off-screen as on it.
As well as proving that women can attain success in many fields and roles simultaneously, Jolie has also portrayed a number of distinctly feminist roles on screen, from Lisa in ‘Girl, Interrupted’ and, of course, as the iconic Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider films.
Angelina Jolie is a truly inspirational woman. Not only has she attained an impressive level of success in her professional life, she has also led an exemplary personal life and given women everywhere something to aspire to.
Angelina will star in a new documentary alongside English Queen and Sir David Attenborough. It will air on April 16 at 9pm on ITV. Hopefully it will be available in other mediums soon!
The Queen will star in a new documentary which explores her plans to create a global network of forest conservation initiatives across all 53 Commonwealth countries.
The initiative marks the Queen’s lifetime service to the Commonwealth and her wish to preserve natural habitats for future generations.
Here’s what you need to know ahead of the documentary airing:
What time is it on TV?
The Queen’s Green Planet airs on Monday 16 April at 9pm on ITV.
Who will appear?
The Queen herself, offering a rare look at her life, aged 91, as she explores the grounds of Buckingham Palace with Sir David Attenborough.
Angelina Jolie, and Princes William and Harry, will also put in an appearance as they support the Queen’s initiative.
What should I expect?
The documentary follows the Queen and her ambitious legacy project to create a global network of protected forests.
It features a lengthy conversation between the Queen and Sir David Attenborough as they wandered around the gardens of Buckingham Palace in summer last year, where they discussed a range of subjects including climate change to conkers and birthday gifts. There was even a little joke about Donald Trump.
Prince Harry will be seen planting trees in the Caribbean and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest.
Remember when the Harper’s Bazaar issue with Angelina on the cover from when she visited Namibia last summer? This is a bit of a follow up article by Harper’s Bazaar and it gives us more details on the photoshoot, projects Angelina and her kids are working on as well as more information on the upcoming documentary The Queen’s Green Planet.
Angelina Jolie and Her Children Are Working with Queen Elizabeth on a Special Conservation Project
Jolie opens up about working alongside her children for the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy.
They may be from two very different worlds, but it’s a shared passion for conservation that has Angelina Jolie joining forces with the Queen to help save one of the world’s most important natural habitats—forests.
One of Her Majesty’s most ambitious projects to date, the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy (QCC) is a unique initiative to build a vast network of forest conservation projects around the world. It’s also the reason Jolie secretly travelled to Namibia last summer with her six children to open a plant nursery to provide local saplings to replace dying trees in the Namib desert.
“The [project] means so much and will mean so much to so many people,” Jolie says in new documentary The Queen’s Green Planet. “So, for us to come here and say to the children, ‘This is why it’s important to plant a tree,’ that’s the biggest message I can teach my kids and it’s something that they’ve certainly learned from Her Majesty and her message.”
So far, 37 Commonwealth nations, including Australia, Canada, Jamaica and the U.K., have signed up to the program, which aims to save indigenous forests spanning across 53 Commonwealth countries for future generations.
Jolie is an active campaigner on Namibia’s conservation scene and has been involved in numerous projects there since she first visited in 2003, so it was an instant “yes” when she was approached by the Namibian government on behalf of the Queen to help the initiative.
