Angelina Jolie stumps for Africa

93640__angie_lAngelina Jolie seems to have taken a page from Brad Pitt’s media playbook: Get Diane Sawyer to shine the spotlight on African poverty by granting an interview to ABC News. The canny actress, who traveled to Africa recently with economist Jeffrey Sachs, promoted the MTV documentary about their trip by appearing on Good Morning America yesterday. In addition to talking about her humanitarian work, she ladled out some tidbits about her kids — but not, of course, about her romantic life. The MTV show, called The Diary of Angelina Jolie and Dr. Jeffrey Sachs in Africa, premieres tonight, coinciding with the opening of the massive United Nations summit of world leaders in New York. Note to Angelina: I don’t doubt your sincerity, but world leaders might take you a tad more seriously as an antipoverty activist if you didn’t refer to Africa as a ”country.”

Also, Women’s Wear Daily reports that Jolie has signed on with the St. John knitwear line to serve as their new spokesmodel. Knitwear? At least she won’t have to worry about covering her tattoos with makeup.

    ARE YOU A JEALOUS WOMAN? TAKE THE QUIZ AND FIND OUT…..
    1. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have split and Ange has decided she needs a 6 month break from Bollywood and has found the perfect spot right next door to you and your husband of X years. Do you
    a. Forbid your husband from any contact with the newly single humanitarian mother of 2.
    b. Sell your house and move
    c. Burn her new house to the ground and take the loss in property value.
    2. Your new neighbor Ange has just finished telling the story with a grin and a giggle of how while filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith, she remembered that she wasn’t wearing any underwear when she was in the middle of the stunt. Do you
    a. Take your husband by the arm and lead him away explaining that women (and men alike) who do not wear underwear don’t arbitrarily forget.
    b. Chime in with “the same thing happened to me when I was climbing the ladder at work in my mini skirt. Ha Ha Ha Ha”
    c. Look for lighter fluid and matches.
    3. You and your husband of X years have just had another fight (as most couples do) when he explains that your new neighbor called to ask if “someone” would come over and look at a “plumbing problem”. Do you
    a. Tell your husband that you will continue the conversation when he comes back.
    b. Forbid him from going anywhere until the matter is resolved.
    c. Find the biggest crescent wrench you can find and tell your new neighbor that you will be more than happy to tighten her bolts.
    4. Your husband of X years, now separated, has recently taken interest in things he had shown no interest in before, has radically changed his appearance and has begun demanding that no one say anything “off color” about his new “friend” whom he’s now living with. Do you
    a. Explain to yourself and friends that “no he did not join a gang, he’s just trying to find himself and he thought he’d start by looking next door”.
    b. Accuse him of having an affair with your new “pillow lipped” neighbor
    c. Take up sword fighting, jujitsu and kick boxing and ask your new neighbor if she wouldn’t mind being your sparring partner.
    5. You and your husband of X years have recently divorced and he and his new love, who have been living together for months now, you guessed it, “I could never sleep with a married man” Saint Ange, are now jet setting around the globe denying any wrong doing. Do you.
    a. Grin and bear it, this sort of thing happens to women every day.
    b. Burn your wedding dress and try to move on with your life.
    c. Put an ad in the paper with a reward of One Million Dollars for anyone who can capture the new loving couple, tie them both to separate rockets, light the fuse and blast them back to Mars and Venus respectively.
    If you answered
    Mostly A: You’re a better woman that I am. Not only are you not jealous, you are very secure and comfortable with the thought of Such is Life.
    Mostly B: You’re still a better woman than I am, but you may have some jealous tendencies that probably should be addressed.
    Mostly C: This sort of thing has already happened to you, and you now know better how to deal with it should it ever arise again. You are not jealous, just a lot smarter than you used to be.
