"The U.S. president met on Wednesday with a couple of Hollywood stars in the Oval Office to discuss the fight against violence against women."

Barack Obama "Jolie spoke about the work she performed for combating mass atrocities and sexual violence against women, " said Jamie Smith, deputy spokesman of the Presidency of the United States.

This meeting was not on the official agenda of Obama and the press was not invited, but journalists saw the two players from the windows of the Oval Office. Angelina Jolie has just finished shooting his first film as director, In the Land of Blood and Honey ( In the land of blood and honey ). The film recounts the horrors of the Bosnian war (1992-95), including the abuse of women.

According to local organizations, about 20 thousand women, mostly Muslims, were sexually abused during the war in Bosnia. Some 100 000 people were killed.

The film tells the love affair between a young Muslim woman (Zana Marjanovic) and Serbian (Goran Kostic) that are on opposite sides after the outbreak of the conflict.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are one of the most prominent Hollywood couples, not only for their films and their commitment to various causes, but for their family of six children, three of them adopted and from different countries.
