The actress penned the personal note to her actor beau during a UN trip to Afghanistan, after being warned she was a 'target'
Angelina Jolie has revealed she wrote a farewell letter to Brad Pitt during a trip to Afghanistan, after being warned she was a ‘target’ for attacks.
The actress, who toured the country for the first time in 2008 as part of her duties as UN goodwill ambassador, recalled a host of ‘near misses’ during an interview with OK! magazine, adding that she penned a farewell letter to Brad Pitt in case anything happened to her.
‘I had moments where I’ve been in a house and people have pounded on the doors and screamed at you and said, “We know she’s in there and we want her passport,” and I’ve had moments recently when I went to Afghanistan, and I’ve got off the plane thinking, this is fine,’ Angelina Jolie said of her trips.
‘And then I got there and they said, “The people are very angry with you. They are angry that you are a woman and you are American and you are with UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees), so you are the target”.
The actress added: ‘They gave me a briefing and they said everybody needs to write their blood type down.’
‘There’s a guy outside with a bulletproof vest, he put his passport in the vest, because he would be the one to take me out. I wrote a note to Brad in the process and figured if anything happens he’ll find it.
‘I was fine, but then two weeks later they did attack the UN and they killed everybody in the bunker. I figured if anything happened he’d find it.’
