Another Adoption for Angelina Jolie

Another Adoption for Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie has just adopted her third child from a foreign country, Vietnam, making her the mother of four children. For years, she was Hollywood's bad girl in residence. The tattoos, that penetrating stare, and who could forget the vial of blood around her neck. Then things changed. Angie grew up.

Now, we see her using that same seriousness and drive towards a new outlet. Her eyes opened to the atrocities that war produces. Having started out as a humbled observer, then a U.N. Ambassador for the last six years, she is now known for something beyond her romantic entanglements. She willingly admits to using her star power to get her causes noticed. Her devotion to the people of war torn, poverty-stricken countries makes her a truly inspiring role model for many women.


As an actress of notoriety, do you think she has become a good role model and a woman who inspires others? Is it possible for a person to change this much?

    I think it's great that she's bringing attention to the crisis in Africa. It doesn't mean that she's sane but, at least she's using her celebrity for good. I give her credit for that.

    God bless her, helping only a few can change the world, too bad more people were not like her!

    I think Angelina is a fabulous role model for women and I do believe people can change that much. It's obvious that all she is doing is not a front to produce an image of herself to the world; her every move seems to be focused on her children and making the world a better place. Those are the two hardest jobs in the world!

    I absolutely think Angelina is a  positive role model. People need to know what is going on in the world today. She is someone I admire. Changing is part of life and like my Mother always told me, "Dont believe everything you hear and half of what you see"  I say she is true inspiration.

    I really admire her for putting her fame towards a good cause, but I do think there is a limit. She has a new baby in the house, plus two other adopted children all of younger ages. So, now she has 2 boys and 2 girls...perfect, each has a playmate of the same gender along with the other two siblings. She needs to space out her adoptions to give all the children the attention they need.

    I don't find this important either, as I don't about Madonna adopting foreign kids and she lives in yet another country.Their money,their lives,I just do not have to agree with what they do.Why can't she(either one) adopt or donate to children in America? Might be more helpful to teach them in Africa and other 3rd world countries about birth control or safe sex and not bother bringing children into the world that basically starve to death or die of Aids.

    I feel like she is collecting children, much like some people collect too many dogs or cats! Her youngest daughter, Shiloh, is still quite young and might have benefitted from some extra attention before bringing in another child.
