Angelina Jolie isn’t making any friends on her movie she’s shooting in Bosnia. Just last month she was almost banned from filming altogether after it was reported the movie was about a Bosnian woman who falls in love with the Serbian soldier who rapes her.
And now the Women Victims of War association has fired off a letter slamming her ignorance to their situation. Apparently they want to meet with Jolie because they don’t want to be misrepresented.
Jolie then invited them to Budapest, but they refused saying that since the crimes occurred in Bosnia, they wanted to meet her in Bosnia. Angelina never responded.
The WVW wrote to the United Nations refugee agency saying,
"Angelina Jolie's ignorant attitude towards victims says enough about the scenario and gives us the right to continue having doubts about it. We have insisted to meet Angelina Jolie since we don't want to be wrongly presented in the world... Our voices are worthwhile and we should have got much more respect. Angelina made a big mistake. We feel that she did not act like a real UNHCR ambassador and we believe that she has no more credibility to remain the ambassador."
These women have more guts than anyone in Hollywood! In the film industry Angie is treated like royalty—she’s probably never had anyone tell her “no.”
Props to these women for sticking up for what they believe! But knowing the way Angelina works, I assume she’ll make this right. One thing’s for sure, it’s making me really want to see this movie!
