Hollywood star Angelina Jolie surprised Ukrainians by turning up at a cafe on Saturday.

Jolie, 46, dressed down as she appeared in the western city of Lviv despite Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

Maya Pidhorodetska posted a video of the Oscar-winning actress and filmmaker on Facebook.

She wrote after filming Jolie, who waved to her from the counter: “Nothing special. Just Lviv. I just went to have coffee. Just Angelina Jolie.

“Ukraine is simply supported by the whole world.”

However, one customer - a boy - remained glued to his phone as the superstar took her seat. Footage later showed Jolie singing autographs for fans in Ukraine.

Last month, Jolie signed a three-year deal with Fremantle which will see her produce, direct and star in a spate of feature films, documentaries and original TV series.

The Eternals star is a Special Envoy for the UN refugee agency.

Jolie will produce and direct the feature film Without Blood – adapted from Alessandro Baricco’s best-selling novel about war, revenge and healing – in Italy in May.

Jennifer Mullin, Global CEO of Fremantle, said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Angelina, joining creative forces in the next phase of her extraordinary career as a producer, director, actor and humanitarian.

“Fremantle and Angelina share the passion and ambition of telling compelling stories from everywhere in the world, for everyone in the world.

“We embrace and support the creative independence of our partners and look forward to working with Angelina to bring powerful and unique stories to a global audience.”
