Not many men would turn down the chance of meeting Angelina Jolie, but that's just what Italian prime minister Romano Prodi did.
Jolie, who is a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations, was due to meet Prodi earlier this week while she was attending a U.N. conference in New York.
According to reports, Jolie was planning to quiz the Italian prime minister about his stance on world poverty. This led to Prodi cancelling the meeting at the last minute.
However, he doesn't think that he will be getting into any trouble, especially as Jolie is only an actress.
"I've never seen a politician get into trouble for not meeting an actress," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.
