Globetrotter Angelina Jolie looks tired and drawn as she visits Syrian refugees in Turkey

By Daily Mail Reporter

Tired: Angelina Jolie appeared skinny and drawn as she travelled to Turkey's border with Syria today to meet some of the refugees

Angelina Jolie has a busy acting career, six children and an equally busy partner in the shape of Brad Pitt.

But she still finds time to globe-trot around the world in her capacity as a goodwill ambassador for the U.N.

However, her frequent travelling and unconventional lifestyle appear to be taking a toll on the 36-year-old who appeared skinny and gaunt as she arrived in Turkey today.

Burning the candle: The actress has been juggling work, six children, her partner Brad Pitt as well as being a U.N. Goodwill Ambassador

Loved: Jolie received a warm welcome and a banner near the entrance of the refugee camp read 'Goodness Angel of the World'

Wearing black trousers and a black T-shirt, the actress's face looked pale and drawn even though she tried to cover up with large dark glasses.

With her hair scraped back and minimal make-up, the A-Lister put a brave face on but looked like she would benefit from a few extra meals.

Jolie travelled to Turkey's border with Syria to meet some of the thousands of Syrian refugees who have fled their government's bloody crackdown on dissent.

She is an ambassador the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees and arrived in the Turkish province of Hatay on a private jet with boxes of toys for the refugee camps.

There are nearly 10,000 Syrian refugees in camps inside Turkey.

DHA television showed Jolie disembarking from the plane in sunglasses.

She rested at Hatay airport and then headed to a camp in the Turkish town of Altinozu, Turkish media reported.

Turkish authorities hoisted a 45-foot-long banner near the entrance of a refugee camp to welcome Jolie. It read: 'Goodness Angel of the World, Welcome' in English and Turkish.

Police kept fans away from the actress at Hatay's airport and cameras were removed from rooftops and high points to prevent video of the visit.

One fan held a poster that read: 'Angelina, kiss me for world peace.'

Authorities said Jolie's own crew would provide images of her meetings with refugees.

In April, Jolie travelled to Tunisia during its refugee crisis as thousands fled from its war-torn neighbour, Libya.

Jolie, her partner Brad Pitt, 47, and their six children have relocated to Malta while the actor films his new film World War Z.

Fancy dress: The mother-of-six took her brood, including daughter Vivienne and son Knox, to an indoor play park in Malta yesterday

On the move: The family are renting a $11million mansion in Malta while Brad films his new movie World War Z there

They are renting a $11million mansion in the Qrenxdi area of the island, according to Us Weekly magazine.

She was seen earlier this week shuffling her kids dressed in fancy dress while toting a Louis Vuitton handbag, the company she has recently becoming face of for their new campaign.

Two-year-old Knox wore a lady bird costume while his twin sister Vivienne work a pink princess outfit.

Maddox, nine, Pax, seven, Zahara, six, and Shiloh, five, also joined in the fun and were spotted leaving a store with toys in tow.
