"Angelina is always invited by several media outlets to sit at their table, but she always refuses," a source close to Jolie told Popeater. "Angie is filming in Europe at the moment, but that isn't the reason she didn't attend. She didn't go because on her weekends off she would rather spend her time helping those who really need it rather than sitting, drinking champagne and laughing at bad jokes in a fancy DC ballroom."
But until this season, Angelina was an awards show fixture. So is it just that she doesn't want to hobnob with the rich and famous unless she's got something to promote?
