Angelina Jolie donating money from Mon Guerlain campaign to charity
Angelina Jolie is to donate her entire salary from being the face of Mon Guerlain to charity.
The ‘Maleficent’ star is yet to disclose which charity she will give her funds from the new fragrance campaign to, but it is likely to either be the UN Refugee Agency, which she is a Special Envoy of, or the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative.
In a statement, Jacques Guerlain said: "We create perfumes for the women we admire."
Adding that the scent is, "notes of a woman".
The perfume endorsement is the brunette beauty’s first big gig since she filed for divorce from Brad Pitt.
According to E! News, the 41-year-old actress – who has Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with the ‘Allied’ star – had talked about teaming up with the brand in 2015, when she was out in Cambodia in Southeast Asia shooting ‘First They Killed My Father’, which she directed.
The collaboration was bound to come about as Angelina’s late mother, Marcheline Bertrand – who died of breast and ovarian cancer in 2007 – was a massive fan of the fragrance brand’s face powders.
Brad has also been showing his philanthropist side lately too as on January 17, he made an appearance at a charity concert amidst his ongoing custody battle with Angelina.
The 53-year-old actor has been laying low since his estranged wife filed for divorce last year and entered into a bitter legal feud over the custody of their six children, but stepped out at the Rock4EB! concert in Malibu, California, to raise money for the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation.
The ‘Fury’ star was joined at the star-studded event by the likes of Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, Sting, Zach Galifianakis and Courtney Cox.
Meanwhile, Angelina reportedly agreed to call a public truce in her bitter divorce battle with her estranged spouse after seeing the support he recently received at the Golden Globes.
A source previously shared: "There’s so much love for Brad in Hollywood and she feels like there’s none for her.
"They sorted out their statement within hours of his Golden Globes appearance. She realised the impact their separation has had on her image and is desperate to try to ensure no further damage is done.
"They will be keeping things to themselves from now on."
