Angelina Jolie was accosted by paparazzi photographers in New York City Monday night (Dec. 5) where she hosted a benefit gala for WITNESS, the international human rights group.
Jolie attempted to enter the event via a back door when she stopped to sign a few autographs. But the situation quickly got out of hand as several photographers surrounded her. Jolie even had to push a camera away from her face.
The mayhem continued and Angelina pleaded with photographers to "just back up." When the crowd failed to oblige, Jolie and her security detail left to go into the event.
Jolie made news last week when she confirmed that Brad Pitt is in the process of becoming her children's adoptive father, and filed a petition to change her kids' names to Zahara and Maddox Jolie-Pitt.
