Angelina Jolie looks gorgeous as ever at a press conference about sex violence during war on Friday, March 28, in Sarajevo.  She and British Foreign Secretary William Hague launched a global initiative two years ago to fight sexual violence in armed conflicts, end impunity for the perpetrators and provide support for victims. So far, 141 countries have supported the initiative, including Bosnia.  The two were there to hold a press conference to praise Bosnia for setting excellent standards.

"Warzone rape has been a taboo subject in all countries. You are helping to break down those taboos and redefining soldiering in the 21st century," Jolie said.

“We are here to meet victims of the war in Bosnia," she continued,  "female and male survivors of rape who carry a terrible burden. The use of rape as a weapon of war is one of the great injustices of our time. For too long the world has tolerated these crimes, and left survivors to struggle in the shadows. Our goal is to bring forward the voices of the survivors of these crimes and to ask the world to stand with them and against impunity.”

Later, Angelina and Hague met with widows and mothers of genocide victims in Srebrenica — a Bosnian town where Serb forces killed over 8,000 Muslim men and boys in 1995. Jolie came out of the meeting with tears in her eyes.

Angelina Jolie and two of her children, Maddox and Zahara, flew into LAX airport last night after spending some time in Las Vegas to promote Angelina's new movie, "Unbroken."


Angelina surprised exhibitors at CinemaCon in Las Vegas yesterday by coming in to preview “Unbroken,” the World War II drama she directed and produced, which is due out in December.  She addressed the audience during The State of the Industry: Past, Present and Future and Universal Studios Presentation.


"Unbroken" tells the true story of Lou Zamperini, a World War II hero and track star who ran in the 1936 Berlin Olympics.  Zamperini, played by Jack O'Connell, spent a terrifying 47 days floating in the Pacific Ocean following the crash of his U.S. military plane. He spent the next two years as a prisoner of war after washing up behind Japanese enemy lines.  It is based on the book by Laura Hillenbrand.


"I wanted to make this film because its message is one that we all need now more than ever," Angelina told the audience.


This is the second film Angelina has directed.  Her first was the 2011 war drama "In the Land of Blood and Honey."

Angelina Jolie and her 12-year-old son Maddox were seen departing LAX in Los Angeles on Valentines Day.

No word on where the two were headed. Perhaps some mother and son time? Wherever they're off to Jolie certainly looks well-rested. Last week the whole family was seen arriving at LAX after Jolie wrapped production on her upcoming film Unbroken in Australia.

angelina angela lansbury steve martin honored

Honored at the film academy's fifth annual Governors Awards in Los Angeles last night were Angelina Jolie, Steve Martin and Angela Lansbury.

The trio of celebrities accepted honorary Oscar statues Saturday evening at a private dinner at the Hollywood & Highland Center.

Jolie received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award.  The 38-year-old mother of six got emotional as she thanked her late mother Marcheline Bertrand for inspiring her to think of others and give back.

She told those assembled for the event, "To stand here today means I did as she asked.  And if she were alive, she'd be very proud."

The actress attended the event with her partner and fiance Brad Pitt, and their 12-year-old son Maddox.  The boy was adopted from an orphanage in Phnom Penh, Cambodia in early 2002 at age seven-months.

The rest of the Jolie-Pitt brood includes Vietnamese born Pax, 9, Ethiopian born Zahara, 8, Shiloh, 7, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 5.

Looking extremely proud of his daughter from his vantage point in the audience was actor Jon Voight.  Check out her acceptance speech below:

jay z and beyonce

Forbes released their 2013 list of the 'Highest Earning Celebrity Couples' and we don't think you will be surprised that Beyonce and Jay-Z landed at the top.

The A-list couple are undoubtedly two of the savviest business people in entertainment. They pulled in an estimated $95 million in earnings between June 2012 and June 2013.

Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen have capitalized on their fame in order to cash in on other lucrative business opportunities unrelated to football or modeling.  Their estimated combined earnings are reported to be $80 million over the past twelve months.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt came in third with a combined $50 million. Unlike the other top couples on our list, they haven't aggressively expanded their business holdings beyond acting, but do earn a princely sum per film.

highest earning celebrities

Power couple Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis made a whopping $35 million, while Kanye West and Kim Kardashian nipped at their heels with $30 million.

Forbes talked to managers, agents, producers and other in-the-know movers and shakers to come up with estimates for each celebrity’s entertainment-related earnings between June 2012 and June 2013. They did not subtract for taxes, agent fees or other celebrity related expenses.

Angelina Jolie was rocking a Ralph & Russo strapless silk crepe peplum dress at the Berlin premiere of 'World War Z,' while also marking her 38th birthday on Tuesday, June 4 in Germany.

It is the third stop for Brad Pitt and his wife as they travel through European to promote his new film set to release in U.S. theaters on June 21.

We hate to keeping pointing this out but ... what is up with Brad's zipper fly.  For the second day in a row, it looks like something is amiss - see Paris pics here.

This has been a tour of triumph for Angie, who underwent a double mastectomy in February, and reconstruction surgery at the end of April.

The entire Jolie-Pitt entourage dined out at Japanese eatery Kuchi to celebrate their mother's birthday.  Angelina wore a black sleeveless dress and daughter Zahara, 8, was looking decidedly glam in a shimmery pink Grecian gown and blingy flip flops.

Shiloh, 7,  wore tomboy shorts with a white shirt and loafers, while her little sister Vivienne,  4, wore a white dress featuring several layers of ruffles at the bottom.

Dressed in black t-shirts and jackets, like their famous A-lister dad, were sons Maddox, 11, Pax, 8, and Knox, 4.

See video of the family as they celebrate Angelina's birthday:

brad and angelina at paris premiere of world war z

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt appeared Monday night at the Paris premiere of his latest film 'World War Z.'

The actress was rocking a custom black Saint Laurent wool sable suit that she accessorized with a black silk blouse featuring a bow at the neck.  Angelina was sporting a masculine vibe with her hands thrust in her pants pockets while posing for photographers.

She and Pitt wore their hair pulled back in pony tails ... after leaving their equally long and nearly identical tresses flowing on Sunday night during the more formal London premiere - photo gallery here.

We're not sure what is going on with Brad's zipper.   Is his fly open?

The recent red carpet outings were the first public appearances by Angelina since she underwent a preventive double mastectomy in February and reconstructive surgery in late April in an effort to prevent breast cancer.

Attending the premiere with their famous parents were Maddox, 11, and Pax, 9.  Angie told a reporter, "I'm very excited for Brad and I think it's a really fun film.  My boys are around somewhere, so they're enjoying it."

Angelina Jolie was stunning in a black Saint Laurent gown last night at the London premiere of 'World War Z.'

She and Brad Pitt were smiling broadly at the Empire Leicester Square event as photographers captured photos of the actress during her first official outing since undergoing surgery.

Angelina had a preventive double mastectomy in February and reconstructive surgery in late April after learning that she carried a mutated BRCA1 gene that predisposes her to breast cancer.

On May 14, the actress wrote in an op-ed piece for the New York Times, "I do not feel any less of a woman.  I feel empowered that I made a strong choice that in no way diminishes my femininity."

Jolie lost her mother, an aunt and a grandmother to breast and ovarian cancer.  They were all carriers of the BRCA1 gene.  The actress has indicated she also plans to schedule a surgical procedure to have her ovaries removed.

The couple, who announced their engagement in 2012, have six children: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne.

'World War Z' is slated for release on June 21, 2013.
