Never one to shy away from supporting human rights, Angelina Jolie has taken a side in what is perhaps one of the most controversial stories in America (and the world over) right now: Rev. Terry Jones -- the head of a small church in Florida -- is planning a Quran-burning ceremony on the ninth anniversary of Sept. 11.
Jolie, 35, a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, has joined the ranks of many (including Hillary Clinton) who are criticizing this decision. When asked during a press conference if she supported Jones or his plan, Jolie told reporters, "Of course not. Of course not."
We applaud Jolie for not only being a human-rights activist -- she's currently visiting Pakistan to meet with devastated flood victims and to help raise awareness to provide aid -- but for always being outspoken about world issues that need a spotlight.
