Angelina Jolie paid a discreet visit to remote areas of Cambodia as a guest of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, officials said Monday.

Jolie stars in "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider," which includes several scenes shot in Cambodia at Angkor Wat, the largest religious monument in the world and the best known of the scores of old Buddhist and Hindu temples around Cambodia.

The 26-year-old actress, who plays the adventure-seeking heroine in the film adapted from the "Tomb Raider" video game, was in Cambodia during filming late last year. Last week, she toured former Khmer Rouge zones where the UNHCR has worked with displaced people and returned refugees.
