Angelina Jolie will be joining CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” on World Refugee Day on June 18, Access Hollywood has learned.
The humanitarian star has been filming the spy drama “Salt” on location in New York City and Washington, D.C., but she hasn’t forgotten about her causes. Jolie wrote an article for Time magazine earlier this month expressing outrage over the conflict in Darfur.
“Darfur has almost disappeared from the news, and experts now call it a ‘low-intensity’ conflict. But the intensity of the crisis has not lessened for those who are struggling to survive,” she wrote at the time, imploring the United Nations Security Council to move forward on the issue.
Angelina Jolie has a long history of using this day to raise awareness of the harsh realities refugees face. She appeared on AC 360 on World Refugee Day in 2006 and again on 2007. Here is a clip from her 2007 interview:
In 2008, Jolie could not appear with the Silver Fox because she was heavily pregnant with twins, but she still managed to participate in this public service announcement for World Refugee Day, to help raise awareness about the plight of millions of people at risk.
