(Newser) – Angelina Jolie, the subject of some less-than-flattering leaked emails of late, got to do something with a bit more feel-good attached yesterday, presenting two underprivileged girls with full rides to Loyola Marymount University. Speaking at the Hollywood Reporter's Women in Entertainment Power 100 breakfast, Jolie said the awards—reportedly worth north of $400,000—mean being "able to spend four years at a great university without student debt," an experience she likened to "a dream." The girls are part of the Women in Entertainment Mentorship Program, which matches 15 to 20 girls from what THR calls "some of LA's toughest schools" with female execs in the entertainment industry. "We look forward to all that you are going to do in this life," Jolie told the girls.
