Actor and humanitarian Angelina Jolie consistently promotes charitable causes. Here are 10 times she used her platform for good.
Angelina Jolie is a dedicated humanitarian, and she’s determined to make the world a better place through a variety of charitable efforts. Though she found fame both as the daughter of celebrities and through her work on the big screen, she continuously uses her massive platform to promote kindness and justice across the globe. Whether she’s shining a light on the importance of bees or the plight of refugees, Jolie understands the importance of helping the planet and the people who inhabit it.
The mother of six, who is a special envoy to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, has taken a particular interest in the countries in which her three adoptive children were born—Cambodia, Ethiopia, and Vietnam.
“My role as goodwill ambassador has made my work as a film star relatively dull. I can’t find anything that interests me enough to go back to work,” she told CNN in 2005. “I’m simply not excited about anything. I’m not excited about going to a film set.”
