Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie addressed the World Economic Forum today (27JAN06) and warned those present not to be starstruck by her.
Jolie is in Davos, Switzerland, in her position as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations refugee agency.
She spoke at the forum to lobby for the increase in humanitarian efforts in war-torn areas such as Afghanistan, and urged business leaders and politicians at the meeting not to be dazzled by her celebrity presence.
Jolie said, "I just think if I can ask anything it's for everybody in this room, including myself, to stay focused on the issues.
"To follow up on Darfur, to watch what is happening in the courts, to follow up on Nepal ... on Afghanistan."
