Journalist Tina Brown and actress Angelina Jolie
Ready to take the Lincoln Center stage, Angelina Jolie was among those on-hand for the 3rd Annual Women in the World Summit in New York City on Thursday evening (March 8).
The 36-year-old actress looked classy in a white blazer over a pearl top with black pants as she gave a wave to photographers lining the arrivals area before heading inside the David H. Koch Theater.
Other big names joining in on the three day event centered on addressing problems facing women of all ages include dignitaries such as Madeleine Albright and Hillary Clinton, as well as Oscar winning actress Meryl Streep.
During her time onstage, Angelina addressed the audience by telling the story of an obstetrician named Dr. Hawa Abdi, who runs a life-saving medical camp in Somalia which is now being overrun by militants.
Jolie praisefully said that Dr. Abdi’s story “illuminates the nightmare of tens of millions around the world the internally displaced and the ones homeless within their homelands.”
Noting the need for help, she then added that a businessman has just arrived at the camp area with a group of militants in tow, saying, “It is, right now, Friday morning in Somalia. In a few hours, 400 human beings are about to become, once again, displaced.”

Keeping herself in top form, Mila Kunis was spotted hitting up a gym in West Hollywood yesterday afternoon (March 8).
The “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” actress looked a bit grumpy as she made her exit, sporting a white top and grey sweatpants with black sunglasses and a sizable black handbag.
And though she’s never had any problems with her appearance, Mila recently shared that she’d be open to going under the knife when the time comes.
“I will not put a needle in my body unless I have a medical reason, but ask me in ten years. Right now, I’m like, ‘I’m going to embrace it.’ But I’m probably going to eventually want to have something done. I have no doubt.”
Opting to switch things up with a different look, Lindsay Lohan debuted her newly reddened hairdo while out in Beverly Hills, CA on Thursday (March 8).
Exiting a doctor’s office with a pack of cigarettes in-hand, the “Mean Girls” starlet – who’s a natural redhead – was all smiles as she joked around with paparazzi before hopping into her nearby ride.
The sighting comes after Miss Lohan spent the past weekend as host of “Saturday Night Live” – which ended up garnering a lofty 7.4 million viewers to rank as the most-watched episode this season aside from the Charles Barkley hosted premiere (which followed the Super Bowl).
And while she was widely panned by critics and viewers following her appearance, LiLo saw stars such as Zooey Deschanel come to her defense, as the “New Girl” actress told EW, “It’s so hard. And can I say something? I thought she did a really good job; everyone reads off cue cards. There were some people saying ‘She read off cue cards!’ Everyone — the cast members, the host — everyone reads off cue cards. That’s how it’s done, because they change the script right before, so you have to read off cue cards.”
Miss Deschanel added, “It’s a very hard thing to do. It was very fun — one of the best weeks of my life. It was a lot of rehearsal, a lot of work leading up to it, and it’s difficult. Live performances are its own thing, but it’s a wonderful thing. It takes a lot of energy.”

Trying to avoid the shutterbugs, Ashley Tisdale spent her afternoon getting her fitness on followed by a little shopping in West Hollywood on Wednesday (February 29).
The Disney Channel starlet made her comfy day out look fashionable while wearing charcoal and grey workout gear, aviator sunglasses and a bright red Chanel bag.
The fit and toned “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” star seems to enjoy the hearty workout, as she tweeted, “@cestmoi_lia just killed me in Pilates, and it feels oh so good”
Miss Tidale is enjoying some relaxing time off as her career continues to gain momentum – as previously reported by Gossip Center, the “High School Musical” veteran has been cast as a lead in CBS’ untitled Louis CK/Spike Feresten comedy pilot.
The show is based on a group of young people trying to achieve their creative dreams in the harsh economical times – with the 26 year-old actress set to play Petra, a beautiful and witty assistant to a vintage clothing designer struggling to carve out her place in New York.
Braving the drizzling conditions, Lindsay Lohan was spotted out and about in New York City earlier today (February 29).
The “Georgia Rule” actress looked cute and casual in a grey cardigan layered overtop of a green and purple plaid shirt as she carried her Gatorade beverage past the paparazzi.
Looking ahead to her hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, LiLo told the “Today” show’s Matt Lauer that she’s in a great place and moving in the right direction.
Lindsay shared, “I still need to go through the process of proving myself,” regarding her viability as an actress given her years of erratic behavior.
She also admitted that she was in denial when it came to having a problem with substance abuse. “It’s a scary thing to have to kind of express to people … I wasn’t as comfortable with myself then. I think it was a fear factor that I had about what was really going on. And, you know, I had to get that wakeup call.”

Kicking off the week with a visit to the late night circuit, Taylor Swift was one of the guests on-hand at “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on Monday (February 20).
The “Mean” singer prettied up the NBC Studios set in Burbank as she sat down with Leno to promote her upcoming movie “The Lorax,” which hits theaters on March 2nd.
Aside from plugging her new film, Miss Swift chatted about topics including what ‘mean’ really means and being stupid in love.
Of her tendency to be too trustful in others, the 22-year-old told, “I’m a Sagittarius and it says one of our major qualities is that we’re blindly optimistic. So when I’m in love I’m just stupid about it. And I trust people, constantly, and I’m always like, ‘I’m not gonna trust people anymore, I’m gonna be one of those dark, twisty girls who guys love because they’re all, like, guarded and stuff. And then I just trust people again… all the time!”
