Angie picks up Pax, proper papers



Tbdpax032007 While you were busy rolling your eyes about your own screaming kids, Angelina Jolie arrived in Hanoi on Monday to complete the procedures necessary to take her adopted son Pax Thien Jolie to his new home in the United States. The AP reports the 31-year-old actress dodged reporters on her way from the airport after flying from Ho Chi Minh City, where she adopted the newest member of her family at an orphanage on the outskirts of the city last week. Jolie was expected to meet with U.S. Embassy officials Tuesday to apply for a visa for 3-year-old Pax. Once the visa is issued, she can leave, which she’s expected to do Wednesday. “Everyone would agree that children need to have a family,” a Vietnamese paper quoted the Oscar-winning actress as saying. “I have the ability to help children fulfill that desire. Why should I say no?” Because Brad Pitt’s whole soccer-team analogy was a joke, Angie. [Photo: AP]
