She might be a humanitarian, but...

Angelina Jolie's bodyguard is at it again. Apparently, photographers trying to take pictures of Jolie and boytoy Brad Pitt in India are getting strongarmed by the humanitarian's bodyguard. British photographer Sam Relph was nearly strangled by Ms. Jolie's bodyguard after trying to take a picture of the worldly couple.

I do have some sympathy for celebrities who are blitzed by paparazzi 24/7, but at the same time, isn't that the cross you bear for fame? Honestly, I think stars who aren't stalked by paparazzi should be a bit worried, because that means no one gives a damn. This isn't the first incident of a Jolie bodyguard roughing someone up either, which makes me wonder how deep her humanitarian roots go. It is one thing to go about the world trying to make a difference, and another thing entirely if you order your bodyguard to kill someone if they try to take your picture. It is kind of like getting a Nobel Peace Prize and ordering hits on people that look at you funny.
