Angelina Jolie makes a cameo appearance in the new documentary Pushing the Elephant, which gives viewers a first person account of Congolese refugee turned human rights activist Rose Mapendo, who is reunited with her teenage daughter after a decade of separation. Rose reunited with her daughter Nangabire in the U.S. and faced the task of building a new future. The documentary follows Rose and Nangabire over the course of a year as they make up for lost time. So how does Angie tie in?

In the documentary, Mapendo commends Angelina, 35 —who serves as a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador — for her humanitarian work during a 2009 UNHCR event in Washington D.C.

“My daughter told me, ‘Watch out, she wants to break your record. Because I have 10 children,'” Mapendo jokes of Angie and her brood of six children with Brad Pitt, which Angie admits she may add to in the near future.
