Angelina Jolie joining this magazine as new editor

Angelina Jolie is adding another gig to her resumé: contributing editor for Time magazine.

Time announced Wednesday that the 43-year-old actress and philanthropist will write a piece every month, focusing primarily on displacement, conflict and human rights.

Her work will appear across Time’s global platforms.

THE WAY THEY WERE: ANGELINA JOLIE AND BRAD PITT

Jolie’s first essay, “Angelina Jolie: What We Owe Refugees,” was published online Wednesday, in honor of World Refugee Day, and will appear in the July 1 issue of the print magazine.

“Everyone deserves dignity and fair treatment, but we need to be clear about the distinction,” she writes in part in the piece. “Under international law it is not an option to assist refugees, it is an obligation. It is perfectly possible to ensure strong border control and fair, humane immigration policies while meeting our responsibility to help refugees.”

ANGELINA JOLIE HINTS SHE MAY SHIFT AWAY FROM ACTING INTO POLITICS

Edward Felsenthal, editor in chief and CEO of Time, said Jolie’s writing will “draw on her eighteen years working with the UN Refugee Agency.”

In 2001, Jolie became a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations, and in 2010 a special envoy for the UN’s Refugee Agency the High Commissioner for Refugees. She has carried out over 60 field missions to refugees, including those in Colombia, Peru and Bangladesh.
