Angelina Jolie's big heart has made an even bigger difference: The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Goodwill ambassador confirms that she has opened a school in Afghanistan.

Jolie chose to fund the girls-only primary school in an area just outside of Kabul, a region that traditionally favors boys' education over girls'.

Angelina picked the village as the site of the school due to its high refugee population regional fighting caused many locals to flee when their homes were destroyed, but since the collapse of the Taliban regime, families are slowly starting to return to the once-devastated area.

The school itself currently educates between 200 and 300 girls.


Mila Kunis pregnant with Ashton Kutcher's baby?

Monday morning, Mila Kunis apparently made the announcement she is expecting a child with boyfriend Ashton Kutcher on her Facebook fan page.

She wrote in a post:

"As you all probably know, I'm pregnant and I've decided to take the next 9 months off with Ashton Kutcher in Hawaii. Don't worry, my manager will be posting pictures everyday as usual so you can all see the progress and news. :) I'm so happy. Any ideas for the baby's name?"

Cate Blanchette enjoys the sweet smell of $10 million.

$10 million dollars. This is the spicy sum reportedly offered to Cate Blanchett to be the new face of Giorgio Armani's female fragrances.

A second season of the show had recently been given the green light.


Even Ryan Gosling can't keep up with all the fan art he's inspired.

In an interview at the New York premiere of "The Place Beyond the Pines," the actor, 32, was confronted with the existence of the Ryan Gosling hotline, a service that lets fans call in to hear consoling quotes from the star's movies.

When E! News interviewer Alicia Quarles asked if he's called the helpline, Gosling looked baffled.

"Are you serious?" he asked.

"So when you announced that you were taking a break from acting, a hotline has come up when people can call and hear your voice. Does it freak you out?" Quarles continued.

"Yeah, I'm feeling a little freaked out," Gosling said. "I'm feeling feelings of freaked-outness, yeah."

The actor appeared on the red carpet alongside on-screen romantic partner and real-life girlfriend Eva Mendes.

The "Gangster Squad" hunk announced earlier in the month that he was stepping away from the movies for a while.

"I've been doing it too much. I've lost perspective on what I'm doing," Gosling told The Associated Press. "I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does."
