Angelina Jolie meets Pope Francis as she screens ‘Unbroken’ at the Vatican

Angelina Jolie meets the Pope, the Pope meets Angelina Jolie; either way you say it both parties seemed to be happy to cross-paths at the Vatican after the screening of Jolie’s latest film ‘Unbroken’.

The private meeting was attended by few, but a few PR pictures were released after the event. Not everyone that goes to the Vatican gets to meet the Pope, but Jolie can add that accomplishment to her growing list of high-profile meet-and-greets that she has attended over the years.

Last October Jolie was in London, receiving the Insignia of an Honorary Dame Grand Cross of the Most Distinguished Order of St Michael and St George from Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. Although meeting the Pope was in-part due to her new film, Jolie’s role as the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Special Envoy, is usually what grants her access to the world’s leaders.
