Angelina Jolie's Louis Vuitton Cambodia ad revealed

http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/1619...d-cambodia.htm

As a natural beauty Angelina Jolie is widely known for her pouty lips and sultry eyes. She is an Academy Award winner, a mother, a wife, a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, and now she is the new face for Louis Vuitton's "Core Values" campaign.

Jolie reportedly banked $10 million for the campaign, which is rumored to be her largest endorsement yet.

Vuitton's executive vice president, Pietro Beccari, declined to confirm reports that Vuitton paid the American actress millions for the Cambodia based shoot. However, he told WWD that the actress donated an 'undisclosed portion of her fees to a charity.'

Beccari says via WWD, "People are not used to seeing Angelina in this situation.

"I like the fact that it's a real moment. This travel message we give through personal journeys is a fundamental one for the brand.

"This campaign is about a very special person and a very special journey."

Jolie is joining other notable celebrities such as, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, and Scarlett Johansson, who are all former faces of Vuitton.

The ad is scheduled to run for 18 months in various publications.

The campaign was shot in Siem Reap, Cambodia, by the internationally acclaimed photographer, Annie Leibovitz.

Leibovitz has shot a slew of celebrities and prominent figures including the George W. Bush Cabinet to a nude Vanity Fair cover of Scarlett Johansson and Keira Knightley.

Jolie is no stranger to Cambodia. In 2001, the actress donned the Laura Croft gear for her part in the film, Laura Croft: Tomb Raider, filmed in Angkor Wat, Cambodia.

Siem Reap is also the birth place of Jolie's adopted son, Maddox.

Following the adoption of Maddox in 2002, 2003 saw the inception of the Maddox Jolie-Foundation, which has since been changed to Maddox Jolie-Pitt foundation.The foundation is committed to creating peace and stability in communities by working with impoverished rural villagers and local governments. It aims to help alleviate food shortages and increase basic necessities, such as healthcare and education.

Currently, the program is working on the Samlout 2012 project. Its priority is to achieve economic grown and reduce environmental destruction in the rural Cambodia Samlout district.

Jolie has returned to Cambodia on many occasions for business and pleasure. She is so beloved there that it was said that a temple was named after her. In 2010, Rajan Zed, president of the Universal Society of Hinduism, told WENN news that Ta Prohm, a Hindu religious temple has been unofficially renamed the "Angelina Jolie Temple."

I am probably the only one in the world that didn't find Angelina Jolie attractive.

Angelina Jolie: My kids eat crickets

http://marquee.blogs.cnn.com/2011/07...-theyre-chips/

When Angelina Jolie tells her kids to clean their plates, there very well could be an insect or two on them.

As she explained of her family's travels to Cambodia in a video for her Louis Vuitton Core Values shoot, she introduced her son Maddox, 9 - who's adopted from the country - and the rest of her brood to fried crickets.

"My boys love to eat crickets. It’s their favorite thing," she says.

"When I first gave it to them, I thought, I wanted them to understand culturally, I didn’t want them to be turned off by something that was their culture," Jolie goes on.

But when they began to get hooked on the crispy treats, she grew a little worried. "They ate them like Doritos and they wouldn’t stop. They brought to-go boxes home and I had to actually ban the cricket eating at a certain point because I was afraid they’d get sick from too many."

So when they returned to Cambodia for Jolie's Louis Vuitton shoot, she had a friend wrangle two to-go boxes of crickets and the family indulged on them right in the car.

"They're good - they are like a potato chip," she says. And while the actress and spokesperson has yet to taste some spider soup, "you gotta try everything," she adds.
