Not only did Brad Pitt get a serious nod by appearing on Time’s 100 Most Influential List in the Builders and Titans category, Angelina Jolie wrote a column for the same issue as well. Continuing to demonstrate that she’s not just a pretty (gorgeous) face with a talent for acting, she wrote the article discusses Somaly Mam who – during the uprising of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia – was sold into sexual slavery by a man claiming to be her grandfather.
The story goes on to tell about her daring escape and subsequent return to Cambodia to fight against sexual slavery – and the devastating consequences that brought about.
I am so happy that Angelina Jolie works so hard for human rights and by that brings these stories to our attention. She does so much for so many people and inspires so many of us to do what we can to help as well.
The piece was written to honor Somaly Mam as one of the 100 Most Influential people under the Heroes and Icons category. What a fabulous acknowledgment.
I know there are a lot of wonderful and caring people here at PittWatch who enjoy helping others whenever possible. If you’d like to know more about Somaly Mam and her cause, you can check out her foundation’s website here.
In other news, this local Albany paper says that today was Angelina Jolie’s last day of filming Salt in their downtown area. It sounds like shooting is really motoring along, so here’s hoping that Angelina will be with Brad Pitt in Cannes in a little more than a week!
