After a three-hour lunch outing, Angelina Jolie, 47, and David Mayer de Rothschild, 44, were recently photographed leaving Nobu in Malibu, California. Jolie, an actress and humanitarian, was seen wearing a black dress with side cutouts and black heels, while Mayer de Rothschild opted for a much more casual look, donning a pair of jeans, a blue shirt, and a blue jacket.
Jolie has been a dedicated humanitarian for many years and was appointed a United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Special Envoy in 2012. However, in December, Jolie announced that she was stepping away from this role, citing a desire to work more closely with refugees and local organizations.
“I am grateful for the privilege and opportunity I have had to work with so many outstanding and dedicated UNHCR field officers and other colleagues doing lifesaving work globally and to serve as Special Envoy,” Jolie said in a statement at the time. “I will continue to do everything in my power in the years to come to support refugees and other displaced people. After 20 years working within the UN system, I feel it is time for me to work differently, engaging directly with refugees and local organizations and supporting their advocacy for solutions.”

Jolie has already been working with locally led organizations like the MJP Foundation in Cambodia, which she founded in 2003. The organization works to improve the lives of the people of Cambodia by providing educational opportunities and promoting the country’s cultural heritage.

It isn’t clear why Jolie and Mayer de Rothschild were having lunch together. However, the environmentalist is known for his work with the Rothschild Foundation and The Sustainability Consortium, as well as his own venture, The Adventure Ecology. He is also a trustee of the World Wildlife Fund and an outspoken advocate for the environment.
