How Angelina Jolie Stopped a Fan From Crying


Perhaps it's her motherly instincts, but Angelina Jolie knew just what to do to stop one fan from crying.

The Maleficent actress went on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Dec. 4, and there was a typical, crowded group of fans waiting behind metal barriers for her outside to catch a glimpse, a picture or an autograph.

PICS: Angelina Jolie's Unforgettable Moments

What happened at this scene was not typical though as one fan, Techna Deschanel, used Instagram to tell her story of the chaotic scene and being "squished to the point" of having a panic attack. Security had to pull her out of the mass so that she could sit down.

Jolie, 39, saw the fan's scare and a beautiful moment unfolded as she was able to calm her down. The star wiped her tears away and made sure she was okay.

Just to put it out there, I went there to the Daily Show with my Friend to get Angelina Jolie. We was practically in the back then went on the side in hope of getting her. Then the guards added another barricade. Chaos erupted to the point. I was getting squished to the point that I started to have a panic attack. She saw me struggling to the point that the security pull me out and sat down. Angelina didnt leave till she made sure I was ok. Usually I have no problem with getting celebrities but it was too overwhelming for me since I have tone down in the last two months. Im not going to lie about my medical condition since this is something that rarely happens to me and I hope it doesnt happen again. But overall Thank You #AngelinaJolie I will remember this. #celebrity #nyc #actress #TombRaider #LaraCroft #MrandMrsSmith #Salt #maleficent #wanted
