Angelina Jolie’s Feud with Amal Alamuddin Is ‘Fiction’
Celebrity Dirty Laundry has reported that Angelina Jolie is feuding with Amal Alamuddin over differing political views. The two allegedly had while having dinner with their husbands Brad Pitt and George Clooney in London. It ended with Jolie walking out and forbidding her husband from speaking to Clooney.
It was also said that Jolie did not approve of the clients that Alamuddin has represented as a human rights lawyer. Alamuddin counts Abdullah al Senussi as a client, whom she represented at the International Criminal Court in May. Senussi worked as an intelligence chief for Libya's former dictator, Muammar Gaddafi.
Moreover, Jolie reportedly avoided Alamuddin when both women attended Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict in June.
However, a representative for Clooney has denied the rumors, saying that the feud is “100 percent fiction” and that the two have never met.
It has also been clarified that Jolie and Alammudin were seated in different areas during the summit, hence did not get the chance to meet. Pitt also failed to attend Clooney's wedding because of a shoot in Malta.
Jolie recently made headlines for expressing interest in a political career. In the November issue of Vanity Fair, the actress said: “When you work as a humanitarian, you are conscious that politics have to be considered.” When asked if she would consider entering politics, Jolie said “I am open”.
The actress was appointed UN Goodwill Ambassador in 2001. She was declared by Queen Elizabeth II as an honorary dame for her efforts against sexual violence in October of this year.
“I honestly don’t know in what role I would be more useful — I am conscious of what I do for a living, and that [could] make it less possible,” added Jolie in Vanity Fair.
