Yay!
I watched the whole thing. I like it a lot. Maybe I'll show Sadie.

Wow. That brought tears to my eyes. She is sooo amazing. Such an incredible role model, and so beautiful inside and out. It definitely makes me want to adopt children from third world countries.

And I'm so glad they didn't ask anything about you-know-who. I was so worried they were going to, because that would have undermined the whole interview. I wonder if Angelina specifically told them not to, or if they actually have the respect for her work that they should and wanted to focus on that.

I've wanted to adopt internationally since I read "They Came to Stay" by Marjorie Margolies in the 9th grade, I think. It's an awesome book about a single woman who adopts two girls, one from Korea and the other from Vietnam. I really to believe that that book changed my life -- it taught me more about multiculturism than anything had in my life to that point.

Some people at my college were completely dissing Angelina the other day, an it really hurt me. It might sound stupid but it was like they were dissing a friend of mine. Anyway, my point being (er..actually I'm not sure if I even have a point!) Angelina has used her celebrity status to make the world a better place, and that's more than you can say for these other 'stars' who are just concerned about getting their tea stirred a certain amount of times.

Oh and dammit woman! Why are you never on google talk? I joined up in hope of speaking to my beloved Bel!

I've also left you a pic on my journal for your friends bar, sorry about taking so long!

I totally understand your reaction -- I feel like she's a friend too.

And I think it's horrible when anyone rails on someone they don't know. When a person is in the public eye, that does NOT give people a right to judge and condemn them, any more than they have the right to judge and condemn some stranger they walk by in the street. Unfortunately, a lot of people seem to believe that they have the right to do both. :-(

thank you so much for posting this. when i see things like this, it reminds me of why I love her so much, and after all the press with brad and the babies, that is a wonderful reminder.

I feel the same way. Watching this made me realize how harshly I had judged her... She has the right to do some things that I don't approve of, and that doesn't make her less of a person. Just less of a role model. She's still an INCREDIBLE person, a rare gift to us.
