"There are celebrities who have charities, but you don't see them on the ground. Angelina is on the ground doing things." Wyclef Jean

"Her work with refugees is not something to decorate herself. She studies the issues." Colin Powell (Former Secretary of State)

"I think she is a terrific talent, until I saw a running of the film, I only had my brief and limited exposure to her. Now I'm even more impressed with her than ever." Sean Connery

"You cannot discount the work that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt do for people in the world." Dan Aykroyd

"We have very passionate conversations. [Laughs.] I always learn from her, and I never walk out of a conversation with Angie without learning something. She doesn't acknowledge borders so much, and neither do I. It's a voluntary view of the world. She's capable of respecting other cultures while remaining herself." Mariane Pearl

"I went to the premiere for Hotel Rwanda. Angelina Jolie was there, and she gave this speech about Darfur. At the after-party I went up to her and asked her to educate me. She asked me if I wanted to go. I would have said yes to anything she said – I was kind of hypnotized." Ryan Gosling

"I found myself staring at her, but secretly I was hoping she was checking me out." Charisma Carpenter

"Angelina Jolie! I don’t have any questions for her… I just want to sit there and stare at her for half hour!" Carson Daly

"I think I worked with one of the most sweet and vunerable and fragile actresses that I have ever worked with, more sensitive than you can ever believe. Angelina Jolie. She is magnificent. I had in front of me an acting animal." Antonio Banderas.

"She's lovely. I was honored to be on Good Morning America with her. She's very nice. She's really kind of shy. But I haven't worked with her. She's wonderful. I thought the last thing she did about Daniel Pearl (on A Mighty Heart) was just terrific. All her work is extraordinary. She's a wonderful actress." Anthony Hopkins.

"Ok..I want to congratulate Angelina because it's been a very long time since I've been in this business and I've never met a person who has such a good balance between family life, humanitarian efforts, ..and all the extraordinary work that she does in addition to this." Dustin Hoffman.

"Working with someone like Angelina Jolie is a great privilege, because you get to look on that gorgeous beauty every day. And she's a great talent..
She's wonderful, she's wonderful.To me it's like she's a throwback to the women in film of the Forties. Not to say the women today aren't great, but back then there was more individuality, all the faces were different. They didn't have the same Botox look.Angelina has that great individuality, her own look and her own style - and she's a terrific actress besides.I think she would have been just as big a name in that era, the same as Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis and Ingrid Bergman." Clint Eastwood

"She was very good, and kind of tough..And when I watched the scene, it made me laugh… She has a kind of Audrey Hepburn-ish quality about her.But still she has her own uniquensse" Robert De Niro

"Of course, I'm excited to see Angelina Jolie on-screen….She's….she's talented." John Malkovich

"Such a wonderful woman….Aside from all that physical beauty, she's a real person." Morgan Freeman

"She's very sexy - there's just something about the way she moves. She's like liquid." Denzel Washington

"She's an incredibly, phenomenally, naturally talented actress… At the time I worked with her, she was battling her looks because she's so beautiful. She wanted very much to be taken seriously and not just judged on her looks. And she conquered that." Winona Ryder

"(Angelina) seems to be someone who spends a lot of time thinking about pretty substantial things. But there's such a loss of critical thinking in this country. She's giving an enormous amount of money - and yet there is still interest in the really superficial." Sarah Jessica Parker

"There are people in my own profession I admire, who have done things and made substantial change, like Bono and Angelina Jolie. They are models for how you can meaningfully devote your life to causes. It's not just lending your face. It's giving yourself. A lot of people lack meaning in their lives, and that's why getting active in issues like microfinance gives you such a center to your life." Natalie Portman

"She is very sexy. It sounds like an obvious answer, but there is something about her. She's hot, I'm sorry. And she's an incredible actress." Sarah Michelle Gellar

"Let's be realistic, you want to see people like Johnny Depp on the red carpet, or Angelina Jolie, a young woman I admire. That is the place for beautiful young people." Julie Christie

"There's an amazing positive energy that comes out of this woman. She has such a wonderful aura." Marion Cotillard

"I would like to do an action movie. I love to watch Angelina Jolie in movies like Mr. and Mrs. Smith….
I think movies where women have great strength and character are interesting. I'm dying to do one." Reese Witherspoon

"Angelina Jolie does very well in red carpet situations because again she seems to really just underplay it. She doesn't draw too much attention to herself and she's stunningly beautiful of course, as we all know. But always looks very fresh and natural and comfortable in her own skin. You know I think it's important to remember that. That's just a very important message for women and particularly younger women. It's just about trying to be who you are and not adjust yourself too much just because your in the spotlight sometimes. And I just really admire those qualities in both Angelina and Meryl." Kate Winslet

"I'd never met Angelina before but I found her to be a real treat, I mean a real doll. She's a nice woman, serious about what she does and loves her man and loves her kids. I was very impressed." Johnny Depp
