Aww, Ange! World-famous Angelina Jolie showed her compassionate side at The Daily Show on Thursday, Dec. 4, in NYC, kneeling down and comforting a crying fan outside the studio.

The girl, identified as Techna, was seated off to the side after suffering a panic attack from the throngs of fans pushing to get autographs from Jolie at the taping. Jolie noticed her crying and the star’s motherly instincts immediately kicked in.

Brad Pitt’s wife, 39, leaned down to speak with the distraught fan, and even posed for a selfie. Later, Techna took to Instagram to share her story, as well as the invaluable picture taken by Jolie herself. In the photo, Techna manages a smile through bleary eyes. Jolie, meanwhile, holds the phone with her left arm and stares beautifully into the camera.

Just to put it out there, I went there to the Daily Show with my Friend to get Angelina Jolie. We was practically in the back then went on the side in hope of getting her. Then the guards added another baracade. Chaos erupted to the point. I was getting squished to the point that I started to have a panic attack. She saw me struggling to the point that the security pull me out and sat down. Angelina didnt leave till she made sure I was ok. Usually I have no problem with getting celebrities but it was too overwhelming for me since I have tone down in the last two months. Im not going to lie about my medical condition since this is something that rarely happens to me and I hope it doesnt happen again. But overall Thank You #AngelinaJolie I will remember this. #celebrity #nyc #actress #TombRaider #LaraCroft
