While the exact amount is not known, we can confirm that Angelina Jolie did use some of the proceeds from her stunning new Louis Vuitton ad to benefit charity.

The 36-year-old was reportedly paid a whopping $10M to star in the campaign, shot in Cambodia by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz. The country is close to the star’s heart as the birthplace of her eldest son Maddox. Speculation is that a large chunk of her fee (UPDATE: We’re hearing the entire $10M will now be donated) will benefit the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation, which helps community development and conservation in Cambodia.

From Fashion, Etc:

“Surrounded by lush green lily pads and tall shoots of grass, the mother-of-six eschews flashiness in favor of authenticity: Her face is makeup-free, her hair is wind-whipped, her feet are bare, and her khaki pants and tee come from her own closet. Oh, and that Louis Vuitton Monogram Alto bag resting on her shoulder? She’s owned it for about six years, which may inspire the label to reissue it.”

Conservation has been at the receiving end of the Jolie-Pitt family’s generosity this year. Back in January, it was announced that the couple had given a $2 million donation to the Naankuse Wildlife Sanctuary in Namibia. The gift was made in honor of their daughter Shiloh, who was born in country.
