Everett Slams Charitable Stars

Actor RUPERT EVERETT has poured scorn on charity work carried out by stars like BONO and GEORGE CLOONEY, branding their efforts "self-congratulatory". The Shrek star in particular hated the Make Poverty History advertisements featuring Bono, Clooney, Brad Pitt and Kate Moss. He says, "Trips to see projects are really just about people feeling better about themselves but we should be careful not to criticise too much. When we see a Spice Girl in Sierra Leone and feel uncomfortable we are really feeling uncomfortable about ourselves. "All charity is a photo opportunity in the end. I know that sounds jaded but it's about making ourselves feel better. It's shocking how slick and slutty we are."

I don't think he is being heartless at all , quite the opposite. The whole vast horror and enormity makes him think. Then maybe he gets embarresed that a celebrity clicking his fingers doesn't make anyone think. Maybe Politicians should speak up more. Read about his trip to Haiti then try and suggest he is heatless.
