Despite being a Goodwill Ambassador for United Nations, the actress took the money out of her own pocket.

Angelina Jolie is leading donations for the flood relief effort in Pakistan - the superstar has handed over $100,000 of her own money to help those worst affected.

The actress, who is a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations (U.N.), called for her fans to help raise funds for the Pakistani people whose lives have been devastated by the floods which hit the country last month.

And as the death toll reaches more than 2,000 and fears increase about the spread of water-borne diseases, Jolie and her partner Brad Pitt have donated part of their fortune to help boost aid for the country, according to news agency AFP.

The "Tomb Raider" star frequently gives away money to help others - she donated $1 million to Doctors Without Borders to help earthquake survivors in Haiti earlier this year, as well as handing over $75,000 to build a girls school in Afghanistan.

Even if a billionare gives 10,000 dollars, it goes a long way in places like africa, asia etc. please we are no one to judge anyones personal spending habbits. As long as she is not a thief, and paying her taxes, we should be mum. Perhaps we should avoid going to star-bucks for a week, and donate the 20 dollars to feed an orphan in africa. stop buying popcorn and drinks a the movies, stop buying nike trainers

she gives 33 % of her earnings to charity. so if she makes a 100 million, donates 33 million--and buys 20 million necklace--she can. the 33 million goes a long way. why dont we stop buying tvs, ipods. everything is relative

And also spends 20 million on a diamond necklace . This fake charity nonsence is not fooling anyone. She is buying herself positive headlines. Because there are soooooo many bad stories about her.
