Angelina Jolie left viewers stunned on Monday night as she managed to successfully land a plane while making an appearance in the ITV documentary “The Queen’s Green Planet” alongside Her Majesty and Sir David Attenborough.
The 42-year-old, who starred in the show with her six children, made flying a plane look easy as she cruised over the desert in Namibia.
“It’s beautiful… I think it’s [one of] the most beautiful places in the world,” the actress told her co-pilot.
On the impact climate change is having on the environment, Jolie said: “Even in the last decade [climate change] is so noticeable, and the expanding deserts… I love the deserts, but we don’t want it expanding in such a way.”
Jolie, who spent time in the African nation highlighting forest conservation, went on to say, “For us to come here and say to the children, ‘This is why it’s important to plant a tree,’ that’s the biggest message I can teach my kids, and it’s something that they’ve certainly learned from Her Majesty and her message.”
The star added of the Queen, “You say to the kids, ‘You know really, you don’t know her, you can’t understand all that it means to be a Queen and all that.'”
“But you try to say, ‘You know she’s just this really lovely lady who really cares about people around the world, and she really cares about the future. And she wants your grandkids and her grandkids to be able to be running around, enjoying nature and other cultures, and the importance of other cultures. She thinks that really matters and I agree with her.'”
Jolie, who got her pilot’s licence back in December 2004, was quick to spark an online frenzy after her appearance on the documentary, with numerous people taking to Twitter to ask if there was anything she couldn’t do.
