Jolie Voted Top Celebrity Do-Gooder
OSCAR-winning actress Angelina Jolie's efforts in helping the world's refugees have led to her being crowned the top Celebrity Do-Gooder by TWIST magazine.
The TOMB RAIDER star is a Goodwill Ambassador for the UNITED NATIONS HIGH COMMISSION FOR REFUGEES, which provides things like food, water, shelter and medical assistance to refugees.
Jolie, adoptive mother of three-year-old Cambodian MADDOX, has travelled the world, speaking at schools and public events in efforts to raise awareness of the plight of the poverty-stricken and donates a third of all her earnings to charity.
She says, "I believe that everyone has a choice: to be a person who does nothing, or a person who does something to make the world better. Maybe you can't fix it. But at least you didn't do nothing."
The top 10 in the poll is as follows:
1. ANGELINA JOLIE
4. SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS
5. Ben Affleck
6. Alicia Keys
7. Tyra Banks
10. Jennifer Lopez22/12/2004 02:52
