Angelina Jolie is cheered by Haitian refugees



The United Nations wouldn't reveal beforehand where Angelina Jolie was headed to specifically in Haiti, but now we know what she was up to Tuesday: She was busy being cheered by locals while visiting orphans at an SOS Children's Village outside Port-au-Prince.

E! said the Goodwill Ambassador met with people displaced by the massive earthquake that rocked the nation on Jan. 12. People apparently were chanting "Angie! Angie!" as she toured facilities. Maybe they were Saints fans.

We could get really cynical about this photo op, but she and Brad Pitt have given $1 million to Doctors Without Borders (whose operations she also visited), and that tops what The Juice* could afford to give by about $999,950. We'll just call it squarsies.
