“If I make a fool of myself, who cares? I’m not frightened by anyone’s perception of me.” ~ Angelina Jolie, Actress & Humanitarian
Summary: A star of stage and screen, Angelina Jolie is perhaps most influential in her role as a UN High Commissioner for Refugees Goodwill Ambassador, advocating on behalf of refugees around the world. Angelina is an example of using the influence one has gained through Hollywood to draw attention to the needs of those in less-fortunate circumstances. While others may talk about world issues, Angelina puts rubber to the road. Not only does she directly impact the communities in which she works, but she inspires others to get actively involved as well.

Q: How do you envision your future? on vanityfair.com
A: I want to work, then, as my kids get older, I want to have adventures. I want to visit all their countries, learn and live inside all their cultures. I will do films for the next few years, then we’ll do something else. That doesn’t mean we’ll never attempt another film, but it will be different.
