Jolie, Thornton on Road to Cambodia
Oscar-winner and United Nations Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie was back in Cambodia on Wednesday, reports Reuters, which said that the "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" star and her husband, actor-director husband Billy Bob Thornton, will remain there for a week. They are scheduled to meet with returned refugees on the Thai-Cambodia border. "I just love this country so much," Jolie, 26, told the news service before boarding a plane for northern Siem Reap province, where scenes for "Tomb Raider" were shot last year at the jungle clad 9-13th century Angkor Wat temples. Jolie and Thornton are scheduled to travel with the U.N. refugee agency to the northern town of Battambang on Thursday and then on to Samlot on the Thai border. Thousands of refugees were resettled by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Samlot (which was formerly a rebel zone ruled by the brutal communist Khmer Rouge) after peace finally settled on Cambodia in 1998. "We want to just help preserve the traditions and culture and be a part of helping Cambodia rebuild itself," said Jolie.
