Meeting of minds: Angelina Jolie met with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, at London's Lambeth Palace on Thursday

As Angelina Jolie’s humanitarian efforts continue, the actress and UNHCR special envoy met with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, on Thursday. But when the 41-year-old screen star sat down with the leading Church of England figure – and posed for shots – fans immediately noticed that she wasn’t wearing a bra. Images of their meeting were shared by the archbishop on Twitter, quickly prompting one viewer to joke:

‘She needs a bra. Looks like she could poke someone’s eye out. How embarrassing!’ ‘And the nipples are out for the archbishop, observed another, followed by the quip: ‘I’m sure the archbishop appreciated her showing her nipples.’

Understated: She went for understated style for the meeting, wearing a simple grey sweater

Explaining why she might have felt comfortable about braless, one commenter shared:

‘I always have to wear a bra with a slight padding as my nipples always stand to attention no matter what the temperature or company and I find it embarrassing. I’d love to wear a pretty unpadded one and not care, but I don’t have the guts. She clearly might.’

After the meeting, the archbishop took tweeted snapshots of his time with the star, alongside the caption:

‘Privilege to welcome UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie. Discussed refugee crisis, South Sudan and prevention of sexual violence in conflict.’

Shock, awe, amusement: Soon after the news broke, readers were quick to share their thoughts on her decision to go without a bra
