Angelina Jolie maintains avid Afghan fanbase, but not because of her movies

AFP, QALA-I-GUDAR, Afghanistan

Jolie, partner of Brad Pitt and star of the Lara Croft: Tomb Raider movies, has a long record of humanitarian work and told the E! News Web site that she hopes to fund more schools from the proceeds of her new jewelry line called “Style of Jolie.”

In Qala-i-Gudar, as in much of rural Afghanistan, there is little access to television. Out of a dozen girls interviewed by reporters, half do not have a set at home. Another has one, but says “the aerial has been broken for a year.”
