Jolie: 'Stars Can Harm Charities'

Hollywood beauty ANGELINA JOLIE has warned other charitable celebrities their efforts can sometimes do more harm than good.

The TOMB RAIDER actress has been working in Asia and Africa as part of her role as a UNITED NATIONS ambassador for several years, but is wary of other stars doing charity work for the wrong reasons.

At the WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM in Davos, Switzerland on Saturday (29JAN05), Jolie said, "I think you can do damage.

"Celebrities have a responsibility to know absolutely what they're talking about, and to be in it for the long run."

On Friday (28JAN05) actress SHARON STONE raised $1 million (GBP550,000) in five minutes by encouraging business tycoons to pledge funds for bed nets to protect African children from malaria-carrying mosquitoes.
