Angelina Jolie, who is a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations, was joined by Brad Pitt for private briefings about refugee situations around the world.
“He seemed very interested in our work,” Jennifer Pagonis, a spokeswoman for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, said Wednesday.
Pitt, who was recently divorced from Jennifer Aniston, has been romantically linked to Jolie, his “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” co-star, for months.
The couple met with staff Tuesday at the agency’s Geneva headquarters, Pagonis said. It was the first time Pitt has joined Jolie on a visit to UNHCR.
Pagonis refused to comment on where Jolie — or the pair — might be headed. The agency doesn’t disclose in advance the dates or locations of its ambassadors’ missions.
“It’s for her own security and the security of the refugees,” Pagonis said. “That’s the only way she can have direct contact with people and hear their stories.”
Jolie has made some 30 missions for the agency since becoming a goodwill ambassador in 2001.
