Redford Praises DiCaprio And Diaz For Environmental Roles

Crusading actor ROBERT REDFORD has lavished praise on younger Hollywood stars including LEONARDO DiCAPRIO and CAMERON DIAZ for their charity efforts.

The veteran campaigner and political activist is impressed by the efforts of the younger generation to champion environmental causes, but fears the majority of Hollywood starlets simply manipulate charities for cheap publicity stunts.

He says, "You've got Leonardo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz. There's a few actors out there that are working in smaller areas.

"But there is a tendency in Hollywood to be fickle about your commitments. Then it becomes a question: is this commitment coming from an ego, when the actor says, 'I want to be taken seriously, so I'm going to attach myself to a cause,' and it lasts for about a year?"

i am really happy to see that leonardo and cameron have been recognised for there contribution to the environment.leo was very wise to make his official website a website for both enevironmental issue and his profile because a lot of peple visit celebrities website so it's a good way of informing the people.not only are people reading about him they are also reading about the environment and getting informed and probably contribute to his project or be nicer to the environment and know that every little thing we do to the environment counts.it's really good to see people that have a huge influence in society doing something good and nice with their influence.nice work,i am really proud of leo and cameron.winnie
