Here's how a tabloid reported on Angelina Jolie's visit to a Syrian refugee camp

“The Hollywood star was far from glamorous.”

ON FRIDAY, ANGELINA Jolie visited a Syrian refugee camp in Azraq, Jordan.

The actress, who was visiting in her capacity as UNHCR Special Envoy, met families displaced by the Syrian conflict and held a press conference in which she called on world leaders to come up with “a political solution” to the ongoing civil war.

So my message to world leaders, as they prepare to gather at the UN General Assembly in 10 days’ time, is to ask that the fundamental root causes of the Syria conflict, and what it will take to end it, are put at the center of the discussion.
After five years refugees do not want to know by what percentage their lives might be made fractionally more bearable, but when they will be able to go home. They do not want to be the passive recipients of aid, they want a political solution.

Aaaaaaand here’s how The Mirror reported it.

*screams into pillow*

The article leads with Jolie hiding her “slim figure” in a “sack like outfit”.

Angelina Jolie drowned her slim figure in a black baggy dress as she visited Syrian refugees. The actress, who was in Azraq, Northern Jordan, as part of her role as special envoy of UN High Commissioner for Refugees, kept covered from head-to-toe in the sack like outfit.

God, Angie. Would you not have worn a bodycon dress?
