Angelina Jolie had son Maddox Jolie-Pitt as a travel partner from New York to LA yesterday after her presentation to the United Nations on Syrian refugees. The UNHCR special envoy criticized the UN Security Council for inaction in Syria's four-year conflict: "We cannot look at Syria and the evil that has arisen from the ashes of indecision and think this is not the lowest point in the world's inability to protect and defend the innocent."
It's certainly admirable for the six-time mom to travel to the middle east to see, first-hand, the suffering of the Syrian people -- because she's got her own large family to take care of and she manages to squeeze work in sometimes, too. While hubby Brad Pitt is in New Orleans filming The Big Short, Angie's in charge of the kids and she now has a teenager in the brood, as Maddox is 13 and showing plenty of signs of late adolescence. The teen sported T-shirt from the band Whitechapel -- a death metal group. He's also worn tees from the Misfits and Slipknot. Young rebel!
And look who also came along for the ride -- Angelina's brother James Haven -- you know, the one she made out with at the Oscars in 2000. Nice to see they're still close!

Kim Kardashian is at step-dad Bruce Jenner's house RIGHT NOW, X17online can report exclusively, just a day after his tell-all interview aired -- in which he aired his personal story of pain and his internal conflict with gender identity, with the entire world.
We spotted Kim in her new silver Rolls Royce, entering Bruce's Malibu mountaintop compound around 2:30pm PT Saturday and she's still inside -- visiting with Bruce as a woman for the FIRST TIME.
Bruce is recovered from breast implant surgery and seemed to imply that last night's interview would be the last time anyone would see him as a male. He plans to live his life, from here forward, as a woman. Which means Kim is sitting with her step-dad now, seeing him with breasts for the first time, seeing him with nail polish and makeup and his hair down and maybe in a dress -- all for the first time! It must be a lot to take in ...
Meanwhile, Kim sat down with the Today show's Matt Lauer last week in New York, for an interview set to air Monday -- and Mrs. West gave her insight on step-dad Bruce Jenner's transition to become a female ...
Kim told Matt the family "really supports him [Jenner]" in his journey but that "there is still an adjustment and there's family therapy." She said it's been a "difficult time for everyone."
Kim and the rest of the family have all posted messages on social media in support of Bruce. Kim, herself, posted: "Love is the courage to live the truest, best version of yourself. Bruce is love. I love you Bruce. #ProudDaughter." In another post: "Your honesty has opened the doors for others to be courageous and live an authentic life! #respect #hero #family"
Brother Rob Tweeted: "You have always been a role model to me and now more than ever, I look up to you. LOVE YOU!!"
Pretty much the only thing we didn't get from Diane Sawyer's interview of Bruce Jenner last night was his new female name, but otherwise, Brucie really delivered!
No one's focusing on the face he called the entire Kardashian Klan "fake," which we think is funny -- he said he's the only real thing to come out of the family's reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
And here's how real for former Olympic athlete got ... the top ten most important things he told Diane:
1. He's not gay.
2. He hasn't yet changed his male organs.
3. He's been secretly dressing as a female since he was a boy.
4. Kim caught him dressing up and didn't speak to him afterward; Kendall and Kylie saw their dad in drag when the girls' laptop was on "security mode."
5. He says he and Kris could still be together if she were more "understanding" of his situation.
6. He began cross-dressing in public in the 1980s.
7. He started taking female hormones five years ago, stopped, then re-started a year and a half ago.
8. He contemplated suicide after photos post-Adam's apple surgery surfaced.
9. He tells Diane he's not even sure how his own "story will end" but he thinks it'll be a happy ending.
10. This will be his last interview as a male.

It's the talk of the town!
Bruce Jenner's tell-all interview with Diane Sawyer airs tonight, and not only is he getting praise from numerous public figures, but his family has spoken out and revealed their plans to be with the former Olympian for his big moment.
"You'll see that he is strong. He is looking forward to the future. He knows this is a big interview, this is a big day for him. But he is really sentimental about his family and looking forward to what's ahead," Sawyer said during an appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael.
Elton John knows how difficult it is to struggle with your sexuality in the public eye, and he admires Bruce for living his truth. "It's an incredibly brave thing to do, especially when you're older. I admire him for doing it and I support him 100 percent," the music man told Access Hollywood.
Even Kimmy K is coming around to the idea of her stepdad changing genders!
"We’re supportive of everyone, no matter what they are going through,” Kanye West’s wife said when asked about Jenner’s transition. “That’s what family is for. We're going to watch the special together as a family. That's pretty much all I'll say about that today. I'll let the special come out and speak for itself," she revealed to Variety.
Youngest daughter Kylie took a different approach to showing her support, and Instagrammed a throwback picture of her father in short shorts and a crop top with hashtags promoting the ABC special.
The only person that has yet to comment is ex-wife Kris Jenner! Shocker!
Angelina Jolie appeared at the United Nations Security Council meeting in New York City today to speak about the refugee crisis in Syria, and she had some very strong words for her colleagues.
"We cannot look at Syria, and the evil that has arisen from the ashes of indecision, and think this is not the lowest point in the world's inability to protect and defend the innocent," Jolie said at the meeting. "We are standing by in Syria."
Jolie added that the council must "work as one," and she urged members to visit Syrian refugees and see the crisis for themselves. Jolie has made 11 visits to Syrian refugee camps since the conflict began in 2011.
Jolie also discussed the crisis in the Mediterranean, where over 1,300 migrants fleeing Syria and other parts of the middle east have perished while trying to escape. "It is sickening to see thousands of refugees drowning on the doorstep of the world's wealthiest continent," she said. "No one risks the lives of their children in this way except out of utter desperation."

Kim Kardashian made sure all eyes were on her when she attended Variety's Power Of Women lunch in a striking Narcisco Rodriguez outfit and a statement-making purse.
The golden clutch was designed to look like a book and showed an illustration of Kim and Kanye at their wedding with the words: "Mr & Mrs. West. A Love Story." Those two sure do love each other! Things certainly seem to be going well for the couple, who was married almost a year ago on May 24, 2015.
But it wasn't just Kim's purse that was making the statements, the 33-year-old reality star spoke about her step father Bruce Jenner's highly anticipated Diane Sawyer interview, which airs tonight.
When E! asked whether or not Kim would be watching the special with the Olympian, Nori's mom said, "Yes, we will be all watching as a family tonight. That is all I am going to say about it now."
At today's event the superstar, who appears on a cover for Variety's special Power Of Women issue, was honored for her charity work with Children's Hospital. The honoree was presented an award and spoke to the star-studded crowd.
The star talked about how her father Robert Kardashian's diagnosis inspired her to help other people.
Lena Dunham, Rachel Weisz, Whoopi Goldberg and Glenn Close also attended the glittering event, which was held at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City.

His current girlfriend Kylie Jenner is NOT going to be happy about this!
Blac Chyna broke the known texting code by posting her private messages with ex-boyfriend Tyga, and his Keeping Up with the Kardashians star girlfriend probably isn't happy to read that her rapper beau wants to fix his relationship with his baby mamma.
The "Rack City" lyricist sounds pathetic as she begs Chyna to spend time with him, but the real incriminating part comes later in the conversation. "Call me when u can. I want to be with u. I want to be positive. I want to be a family again. Want to start this friendship. Relationship," he wrote.
Rather than denying it, the hip hop star cryptically tweeted a weird response. "Give it up. Get over it. I aint here for the tea. Focus on what's real in life. And surround yourself with people you care about. It's simple," he so wisely stated.
Now we're counting down to Tyga and Kylie's breakup!

Awww, boys' day out!
On Thursday Scott Disick and son Mason went to lunch in Los Angeles, and this was before Lord Disick went to dinner with baby mama Kourtney Kardashian and the rest of the family. Though there have been rumors that Scott and Kourtney are this close to splitting up, it seems like things have gotten better between them. Hmm, makes us wonder if that wasn't just a plotline for Keeping Up With The Kardashians...
In March Scott went to rehab in Costa Rica for just one day, and in the weeks after that he hosted a party in Las Vegas, so not only did he seem to be thumbing his nose at sobriety, but he wasn't spending much time with Kourt and the kids! At the time, a source told Life & Style, "Even though they’re not married, this could be one of the messiest and most expensive splits ever," adding that it could cost somewhere around $50 million.
