UN trip made Angelina Jolie cry
Angelina Jolie cried when she went to her first United Nations trip lasttime.
She said, "My first trip out changed me completely. When I first travelled, I was just a ridiculous crying mess. And maybe there was a moment when I realised I was crying more than the people who had suffered a lot more than me. I think that's the thing you realise."
"These people have had their families killed, had their houses burnt down, become stateless - they're not crying, because they don't have time for it, and I'm not helping them by just feeling for them. I had to stay practical and focused."
