DGA diva! Angelina Jolie vamps it up in leggy black mini-dress at Deadline Contenders event

Angelina Jolie vamped it up in a leggy LBD for Deadline Hollywood’s seventh annual The Contenders event in West Hollywood on Saturday.

The divorced mother-of-six also rocked a red pout and dark aviator sunglasses with her perky ponytail at the Directors Guild of America Theater.

Angelina benevolently greeted her waiting Los Angeles-area fans outside the venue by signing autographs and posing for selfies.

Jolie has been single since legally separating from third husband Brad Pitt a year ago after two years of marriage and three children – Shiloh, 11; and twins Vivienne Knox, 9.

If anyone can commiserate with the former Hollywood wild child it’s Mudbound actress Mary J. Blige, who’s still divorcing ex-manager Martin ‘Kendu’ Isaacs after 13 years of marriage.

Joining the Special Envoy for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees was her longtime friend and co-screenwriter, Loung Ung wearing a sleeveless black dress.

Angelina met the 47-year-old human rights activist 16 years ago and together they adapted her 2006 memoir First They Killed My Father into a Netflix film currently streaming.

During the awards season Q A, Jolie announced that her fifth directorial effort is Cambodia’s official entry for next year’s Academy Awards best foreign film category.

‘If I may, we Cambodians don’t consider Angie a Western woman,’ Loung told moderator Pete Hammond.

‘She’s ours and she’s been a citizen since 2005 – and before that, she was Cambodian in spirit.’

Ung added: ‘We clicked right away – she was really, really authentic. She really hates it when I gush about her in public, but she’s a really cool person!’

The By the Sea director’s 16-year-old son Maddox (born Rath Vibol) received an executive-producing credit for the genocide drama and her 13-year-old son Pax shot still photography for it.

‘Every Cambodian person in this film knew someone who was affected by the war and they came back to do this for their loved ones,’ Angelina explained.

‘During the war, artists were killed because of their influence. Having the artists come back to paint the sets and act the scenes was so inspiring. You’re not sadaout the story, but your proud of what this country can do creatively.’
