    Angelina Jolie Receives Citizen of Sarajevo Award & Rocks Engagement Ring Publicly for First Time

    Angelina Jolie (and her $500,000 rock!) were honored in Bosnia at the 18th Sarajevo Film Festival on Saturday.

    The actress turned up at the festival to support her flick In the Land of Blood and Honey. The film tells the story of the war through the relationship between a Bosnian Serb man and a Bosnian Muslim woman, and the writer-director stepped out for the first time at a public event with her new bling from Brad Pitt, while receiving an Honorary Citizen of Sarajevo award from the Prime Minister of the Sarajevo Canton, Mr. Fikret Musić.

    As for directing the movie, Jolie revealed: "It was the hardest thing I have ever done because of my deep respect for the people that really experienced it. The experience here was so unique for me that I felt very connected to the people."
