Apparently Angelina Jolie has been so moved by the tsunami in South Asia that she’s planning to adopt one of the areas many orphans.

Angelina is a United Nations (UN) Goodwill Ambassador and has recently announced plans to travel to hard-hit Sri Lanka in the coming weeks to help out. Now she also hopes to have one of the children in her custody…

She tells American TV show Celebrity Justice, "I think if children need a home, to adopt them is wonderful.

"I will be looking into the orphans that have just lost their parents, but always wherever there’s a need. So we’ll see how big my family grows over time."

The plight of the world’s orphans has long been a subject close to Jolie’s heart – in 2002 she adopted Cambodian orphan Maddox.
