Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie was left in tears after visiting a Syrian refugee camp yesterday. The Salt actress - who is a special envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees - paid a visit to the Zaatari camp, which houses 27,000 people in Jordan, and delivered a speech portraying her "concern" at the situation there.

"I am very concerned, the world is very concerned. What is very heartbreaking is when Syrian people ask you why you think no one is able to find a solution for them. What they described on the ground, hearing it from them is so horrific. When you meet so many innocent people and civilians, the people of Syria are asking who is on their side, 'Who is going to help us as the months go on?'" she said, speaking with tears in her eyes.

Angelina Jolie and Brad PittBrad Pitt and Angelina Jolie decided to get married because of her work with the United Nations. Apparently the couple feared she may not survive a dangerous new mission with the UN helping to battle drug lords.

The mother of six adopted and biological children, who is a goodwill ambassador for the UNHCR refugee organization, will be involved when the UN launches a fresh war on South American crime bosses. "Brad's terrified something bad will happen to her. It's why he wanted to cement things with a wedding," a source told The Sun.

Earlier this year Angelina wrote a farewell letter to her fiance Brad after becoming scared for her life on a UN mission. "I wrote a note to Brad and figured if anything happens he'll find it. They gave me a briefing and they said everybody needs to write down their blood type," she said.

The couple - who met on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2005 - have kids Knox, Vivienne, Pax, Shiloh, Zahara and Maddox together. They announced their plans for a wedding last month.
