Angelina Jolie smiles during a news conference at Roppongi Hills Friday to promote her film "Changeling." Jolie, 33, has been nominated for a best actress Oscar for her portrayal of a woman whose 9-year-old son is kidnapped, and who has to fight the corrupt LA police when they try to return another boy to her. Jolie said she is inspired by women all around the world who fight injustice and oppression. She added that she had only just recently learned about the abduction of Japanese by North Korea and said she would like to meet the mothers of the abductees. "Changeling" opens in Japan on Feb 20.

"Meet the abductees." These people are everywhere. Love them or hate them, they seem to have an incidious ability to get their message across.

Is it just me, or is Angelina spreading herself around a bit thin these days?

"she had only just recently learned about the abduction of Japanese by North Korea"

How ignorant Angelina Jolie ..is. This subject has been a topic for years...and even my mother back home knows about it....:)

Somehow I like the look of her now much more than in her diva / tomb raider days.

Her collar bones are way to much outward. She`s getting a little bit more than just skinny.

seesaw -- Don't agree. I'd wager that you could stop 100 adults at random on the streets of LA, and less than 5% would know about the Japanese abductees.

she is good-looking anyway, the promotion is a good reason to come to Tokyo, but as she wants to be a mother with a large family, ain't it better to settle down finally?

seesaw - it has been a topic in Japan for years. I doubt most people outside Japan would know much about the topic.

Gotta commend JT again - the daily mention of abductions continues!

Moderator: Commend Ms Jolie. She brought the topic up.

Hardly even a blip on the radar outside Japan. I think herefornow 5% estimate in L.A. is low because of the high Asia population but I doubt you would even get 5% in most middwest cities.

She's so lovely it shouldn't be allowed :-)

I can't blame her about not knowing about the abductions - don't think it's common knowledge among those who don't have an abiding interest in Japan / Northeast Asia.

No, she is a good woman and Brad is a good man. They have the power to cause change and help so many people. Keep your tall poppy syndrome to yourself.

Are you going to kick her out of ... now?

She's just being honest. I know about it, but could care less. Same goes for Darfur. At least she wants to meet the mothers of the abductees. I just want to watch Youtube.

Every time I see her, the words "Home Wrecker" come to my mind.....but of course, Brad Pitt is one also.....

Abductions? Reminds me of a couple of years ago when my brother-in- law's father suggested that the returnee abductions story would be top news in the UK. I didn't have the heart to tell him that it's really a non-story outside of Japan, and quite rightly so.

Angelina is looking lovely as ever.

She has good teeth.

Mentionign the abdunctees is only a marketing ploy (a very nice one IMO) to generate interest in the movie, as it is about an abductee.

Her mother, I believe, is partly Native American. She certainly doesn't look like her father, Jon Voight.

It must be difficult when you achieve fame and fortune at an early age to keep your feet on the ground. Angelina seems to have found her place. My hat is off to her for forging a life more meaningful than one marked by self-absorbed materialism.

Angelina Jolie is great. I've liked her from the start and still do. With or without Pitt. And yes she is (still) hot, more sexy than beautiful perhaps.

She has good teeth. She has to, she has a mouth like a piano.

Have not heard of Japanese being abducted here in Houston. That's cause hey were abducted in Japan. Seriously though, I'm surprised you haven't heard of something that even your former Governor was pretty aware of.

Her mother, I believe, is partly Native American. She certainly doesn't >look like her father, Jon Voight.

I think she looks alot like her father, who I first saw in a movie theater as a kid. (Midnight Cowboy)

So she's a good woman, and I believe also a rich woman who could afford to have all the education in the world that she wants. So why the ignorance...?

hellokitty: Yes, Angelina is being honest. Good for her. I just found it strange that she didn't know about the abductee topic much earlier. oh well, perhaps she's busy raising children...:)..

whoever said we all have our father's eyes doesn't know Angelina.

Both of them give a hell of a lot of time and money to orphaned children in Vietnam. If you don't believe it? Try google.

You may not like their acting abilities but don't judge them when you do not know them. All you see is their media side.

Isn't it amazing how plain most stars look when they aren't all done up and dressed to the nines?

Love her or hate her, she certainly is beautiful...except for all those tattoos.

Boing. Show me a man who's not foaming at the mouth when watching Gia and I'll show you a man with a lot of Sir Elton on his iPod.

A stunner who does a lot more than she needs to for charity. Good on her.

If you're reading this, AJ, I could do with being adopted - on the strict understanding that I'm not bottle-fed.
