Documents published by the website Mediapart, and repeated by People, reveal that the actor had proposed to serve as bait to help the global criminal Court (ICC) to capture Joseph Kony, a warlord in uganda, sought after by this same court for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Jolie was in correspondence with the ICC chief prosecutor at the time, Luis Moreno Ocampo, who reportedly developed a fascination with the actress over a period of time from 2003 and 2012.

In one email sent by Moreno Ocampo, leaked to the French investigative website Mediapart and seen by The Sunday Times, he claims that Jolie "has the idea to invite Kony to dinner and then arrest him".

Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army movement had been fighting then to install a government in Uganda, and have waged war in the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan, and the Central African Republic for more than 20 years, the BBC News said. When he heard she was ill, he told her assistant: 'I realise how much I love her.' The assistant replied Jolie had changed her email address.

She replied that Pitt was "being supportive" and that they should "discuss logistics", however the trip seemingly did not happen. "Probably Brad [Pitt] will go also", Ocampo wrote.

No, this isn't the plot of Angelina Jolie's next adventure movie: How a glamorous Hollywood actress agrees to serve herself up as bait to lure a murderous African warlord out of hiding so he can be arrested by US special forces. 'She loves to arrest Kony. In a 2010 interview with Nightline, she admitted that she would be tempted to "take down" Kony if she were ever face to face with him. "I miss you." It went unanswered. Unfortunately, the unlikely team's plans never came to fruition, though Moreno Ocampo could still pursue his calling as a Hollywood screenwriter.

"Forget other celebrities, she is the one", Ocampa wrote in an email.

Moreno Ocampo reportedly had his own fixation on Jolie.

Other leaked ICC documents show that Jolie was not the only celebrity Moreno Ocampo attempted to persuade to join the worldwide justice organization's efforts against genocide and human rights violations.
