The multi-talented actress, activist, mother Angelina Jolie has another reason to cancel dinner plans with Brad Pitt, as she has just been hired by the London School of Economics and Political Science to be one of their visiting professors.
Jolie will teach for the LSE’s masters program in Women, Peace and Security. In a statement, the school said Jolie will “play an active part in the Centre, delivering guest lectures to students, participating in expert workshops and public events, and undertaking their own work.”
Professor Jolie herself added:
“I am very encouraged by the creation of this master’s program. I hope other academic institutions will follow this example, as it is vital that we broaden the discussion on how to advance women’s rights and end impunity for crimes that disproportionately affect women, such as sexual violence in conflict. I am looking forward to teaching and to learning from the students as well as to sharing my own experiences of working alongside governments and the United Nations.”
If Angie were my professor, every class would end with the following exchange as I walked out the door:
ME: Would you sign my By the Sea Blu-ray today?
ANGIE: No, Bobby.
ME: Bye, Professor.
ANGIE: Bye, Bobby.
You know, I’m sure Anne Hathaway is a delight in person. Friendly. Polite. Considerate. On another planet, sure, but she’s been famous for a long time so it sort of comes with the territory. What I’m getting at is this: though I’m sure I’d enjoy spending time with her in person, there are few places on the internet where I enjoy myself less than her Instagram profile.
Last night, she tweeted a photo of Helena Bonham Carter (her costar in the upcoming Alice Through the Looking Glass) that read “In a world of Kardashians, be a Helena Bonham Carter.” She quickly deleted the post and replaced it with this one:
Though I’m in no position to be giving people advice, I really wish Annie would take mine and do a little less.
Prepare your eyes and your soul, because here’s the first photo of the next Kardashian.
Yep. I see it.
