Suing the pants off an international tabloid, cheering your team on to victory, engaging in rumor-breaking PDA, visiting survivors of the worst natural disaster in a nation's history…such is a week in the life of Angelina Jolie.

Fresh off her Saints' Super Bowl win, Brad Pitt's other half zipped down to the Dominican Republic yesterday in her role as Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. There's no word on how long Jolie's trip will last, but so far her itinerary has included visiting with displaced survivors of the still-devastating Haitian earthquake in the pediatric wing of Santo Domingo's Dario Contreras Hospital and meeting up with Dominican president Leonel Fernandez.

Not bad for day one. Jolie, who along with Pitt donated $1 million to Doctors Without Borders, is expected to arrive in Port-au-Prince today. And that's something not even we can snark on.
