Angelina Jolie On President Obama
Actress Angelina Jolie met with President Barack Obama on Wednesday while she was promoting her new dramatic movie “In the Land of Blood and Honey.”
Jolie and partner Brad Pitt sat down with Obama who was accompanied by advisers Samantha Powers, Valerie Jarrett and Bill Daley where the group talked about the philanthropist’s efforts to help the world’s poorest.
The mother of six explained after the gathering at the oval office that unlike what that tabloids have said about her in the past she never slammed Obama nor has she ever labeled him a one-term president.
She went on to share her thoughts on the administration, by saying:
“I think there are many, many things I think have gone in a wonderful direction and there are a few things I am disappointed in but I don’t feel like tonight is the night to clarify. But there are many wonderful things that have moved forward, and of course, some other things that are very frustrating.”
Jolie, who is a Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations has traveled around the globe including in Bosnia, Somalia and Afghanistan in order to draw attention to devastation left behind by wars, famine and epidemics in these countries.
