As if Angelina Jolie didn’t have enough on her plate. In addition to making movies, raising four kids, acting as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and globe-trotting with Brad Pitt, the Academy Award winning actress and Hollywood royalty can now add “writer” to her already impressive resume.
No, she’s not jumping on the celebrity-penned-children’s-book bandwagon, Ms. Jolie will be contributing an article the atrocities in Darfur to the prestigious “World in 2008” supplement published by the economic and political weekly The Economist.
“The World in 2008”, which contains predictions for next year, will also feature articles written by U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, the Dalai Lama, French president Nicolas Sarkozy, New York mayor Michael Bloomberg and Mexican president Felipe Calderón.
Published tomorrow and available internationally, “The World in 2008” will remain on newsstands all year.
