I think we’re getting there. It’s getting close. I imagine the preparation for it is going to be big. It’s one of those that you think maybe that’s the one you put everything into and that’s where you end it, that’s where you finish—in a great way. What could you do beyond that one?” Angelina Jolie has been working hard as a humanitarian alongside the United Nations. She was appointed the special envoy for the High Commissioner for Refugees in 2012, according to Time.
