Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie meet with refugees in Bosnia
Hopping a plane from Venice to Sarajevo on Sunday, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt visited a refugee center in Goradze, Bosnia-Herzegovina, before heading on to the coastal town of Tivat in Montenegro. They visited with two families who'd been displaced by fighting that ran from 1992 to 1995.
"I was surprised when I recognized him. I could not say anything, I was so moved," one woman who was greeted by Pitt said in a radio interview, AFP reports. "He came to me and took me in his arms. He was also surprised when I told him that I had recognized him and he was very moved with my personal history. He gave me some money."
The visit was intended to be low-key, and the two were not spotted out in public. A statement from the office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees is forthcoming, a spokeswoman said.
Jolie is a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations.
