Angelina Jolie broke protocol to comfort a fan who suffered a panic attack while waiting to see her
She’s a hugely successful actor and director, but Angelina Jolie is just as known for her talent as she is for her philanthropy, and now, the actress has proved that her compassion doesn’t only lie with children and women in developing countries, but also right in her own country.
As she arrived at the set of the Daily Show with Jon Stewart in New York City to promote her new film ‘Unbroken’, the mum of 6 was as usual besieged by fans who’d been waiting to catch a glimpse of her and hopefully get an autograph.
Things son got heated as fans surged forward and security moved the barricade forward, but it was all too much for a young fan who began to suffer a panic attack in the heat of the moment.
As security pulled out the wailing woman to a nearby staircase, Angelina could be seen to be concerned for her welfare and was constantly checking behind her to make sure the woman was ok.
Eventually, she made her way to the fan- who’s now been revealed to a woman named ‘Techna’. She knelt down beside the sobbing fan (not minding that her well pressed and no doubt expensive trousers would get dirty) and if she was ok. She then wipped away the woman’s tears and signed all her copies of magazines and CD’s before actually taking selfies with Techna on her camera.
In what was a great turn of events for Techna who must be doing somersaults at home by now, the other fans could be heard oohing and aaahing in the background probably wishing they were in the young lady’s shoes.
Good on you Angelina, what a gem!
