6 Times We Could Use Angelina's Help

by Maitri Suhas

Angelina Jolie — beautiful, philanthropic, an accomplished actress and director, and someone who has successfully erased the weirdness of her past (i.e. wearing a vial of Billy Bob Thorton's blood around her neck). And with her husband Brad Pitt, she has like, 40 or so children, whose drawings she wore on her wedding veil. Don't you want to just loathe her but you can't because she's beauty and she's grace, she's elegance and taste? And to add to her long list of annoyingly admirable characteristics, she's also apparently a savior to the common fan. Yep, Angelina Jolie helped a fan out in a big way.

On Thursday, outside of the Daily Show studio where Jolie was Jon Stewart's guest to discuss the forthcoming film she directed, Unbroken, the crowd got out of hand and one fan, "Techna" per her Instagram handle, was overcome by a panic attack. Jolie noticed and went to aid her. Techna wrote on her Instagram of the situation with the actress/director: "Then the guards added another baracade. Chaos erupted to the point. I was getting squished to the point that I started to have a panic attack. She saw me struggling to the point that the security pull me out and sat down. Angelina didnt leave till she made sure I was ok. [sic]"

Don't we all wish we had Angelina Jolie to come to the rescue in times of peril? Here are six situations in which I would LOVE her comforting presence.
