Angelina Jolie made a secret visit to the quake-ravaged Haiti and it is rumoured that she is all set to adopt a child. 

 

The Tomb Raider star paid several visits to Haiti after the devastating earthquake in January, which killed thousands and left hundreds of children orphaned.

 

United Nations officials have confirmed that Angelina, who is a UN Goodwill Ambassador, had paid a "low-profile" visit to Haiti.

 

'She met officials and there has been a lot of talk that she is desperate to help the children and is thinking of adopting one,' the Daily Star quoted a source in the country as saying.

 

Angelina already has three adopted children and three birth children with Brad Pitt, 46.

Kristen Stewart has sparked rumours of replacing Angelina Jolie in a Wanted sequel after saying that she is excited to accept the role but only if the movie would be as good as the first one.

The Twilight actress is the preferred choice to take over from the Oscar-winning actress as the upcoming sequel''s female lead opposite James McAvoy, after Jolie refused to do another assassin action film.

'(I would) definitely (take the role), as long as it was good and I mean, it's really exciting to see (that as an opportunity),' the Daily Star quoted her as telling MTV.com

'Wanted was a great movie. James McAvoy makes that movie different from most other action movies because he's a real guy -- you're so with him.

'I feel like most action movies don't have that. So if it had that, definitely. But I wouldn't just want to be in a mindless blow-up movie. I'm not into it,' she added.
