I hope they get a shot of her and the Milky Way, that would be the icing on the cake of truly spectacular, one-of-a-kind photo spread with all the animals.
I suspect her taped video intro was made some time ago because her face seems fuller now, the bags under her eyes are less prominent, she looks more rested.
Angelina Jolie inspires school children to stand up for human rights.#DreamsOfFreedomhttps://t.co/Zc9my9cFhD— AmnestyUK Media Team (@NewsFromAmnesty) June 27, 2017
Angelina Jolie introduced a group of over 600 school children who took to the stage at London's Royal Albert Hall last night to perform their own interpretations of "freedom". But before the show kicked off, the Hollywood starlet/human rights activist had an important message to share.
At the event, which was put together by Amnesty International and Chickenhead Theatre to celebrate the likes of Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama and Malala Yousafzai, Jolie - who is a United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) special envoy - urged the children to fight for their rights.
Speaking via a pre-recorded video, the mother-of-six said:
“Children, I need you. We all need you. We adults, we are a little lost these days, we want you to think that we have it all under control, that it will all be fine. And it will be.
“The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child; it’s like your secret book of laws. And if you can master it, no one can trick you, or your friends. And you can take those laws and rights and go head on with those adults who won’t listen.
“With the power of not only what is right and fair, but what is law, you can fight back. And as you grow up, you will have the tools to protect yourselves and to defend others
“It means you can grow up to be citizens who together can complete the work that my generation will leave unfinished and fight for universal human rights for all children.”
The event was based on Amnesty's book 'Dreams of Freedom' and saw the children share their own messages of freedom and solidarity in a staying beginning with "I stand with..."
Following the recent Grenfell Yower tragedy, many of the children chose to make their statement “I stand with Grenfell” in support of all those affected.
The actress has been known for her humanitarian work ever since 2001, where she visited Cambodia to film Tomb Raiders and witnessed the effect of a humanitarian crisis. She has since visited a number of war torn countries and been a public advocate for universal human rights.

This is what happens when: 1. You are in the middle of the #NamibDesert at midnight 2. You have zero light pollution 3. You have the #MilkyWay above you, looking fake it's so bright 4. You have a stunning #PetrifiedTree behind you 5. You have one glass of wine too many and only a camera, a tripod and 2 photo assistants to play with 6. You hold a pose for a 30 seconds exposure #DabFail 7. You try again and again until you get it right for everyone (it took us 2 hours of playing!) #silhouette #Namibia #photofun #cameragames #TipsyCreativity 😁🌌✨
