Angelina Jolie will be a visiting professor at the London School of Economics this fall, where she will teach a course on women’s rights and wartime rape.
Angelina, who has been a United Nations goodwill ambassador since 2001, will share experiences from her travels to war-torn countries to spotlight rape and violence against women.
“It is vital that we broaden the discussion on how to advance women’s rights and end impunity for crimes that disproportionately affect women, such as sexual violence in conflict,” Jolie said in a statement released by the London School of Economics.
“I am looking forward to teaching and to learning from the students as well as to sharing my own experiences of working alongside governments and the United Nations.”
As as a visiting professor, Jolie will deliver guest lectures, and participate in workshops and public events. Angie’s classes will be part of a master’s degree program on women’s studies.
Angelina, who recently moved into an 8-bedroom home in London with husband Brad Pitt and their six children, has recently been the target of anorexia rumors.
Tabloids claim the 5-foot-7 Jolie weighs a sickly 79 pounds after her dramatic recent weight loss, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.
Sources said Pitt is so frustrated by Jolie’s refusal to eat that he threatened to divorce her, TheImproper reported.
“[Brad is] so worried about her dying and loves her so much that he’s willing to divorce her as a wake-up call,” a source told the National Enquirer. “He’s watched in despair as Angie sometimes goes all day without eating a solid meal.”
Jolie married Pitt in August 2014 in a fairytale wedding ceremony at Chateau Miraval, their sprawling wine estate in the South of France.
In 2014, Jolie’s former babysitter revealed Angelina was hospitalized for anorexia as a teen, Celebrity Health Fitness reported.
Cis Rundle, a friend of Jolie’s late mother, Marcheline Bertrand, said she once carried a scary-skinny Angie to the hospital after she collapsed from malnutrition.
Angelina has never addressed the anorexia rumors, but admitted she loses weight due to stress. Jolie has insisted she tries to be healthy for the sake of her six children.
Jolie, who has been open about her past drug abuse and self-cutting, said her U.N. humanitarian work helped her heal from the depression and existential despair she felt during her youth.
Angelina revealed how her United Nations work dramatically changed her life in her memoir, Notes from My Travels (all proceeds go to charity).
