Keira Knightley - Keira Knightley admires Angelina Jolie's charity work
'Begin Again' actress Keira Knightley recently visited a refugee camp for charity Oxfam, and she admitted she has a lot of admiration for Angelina Jolie's extensive work for those in need.
Keira Knightley admires Angelina Jolie's devotion to charitable causes.
The 'Begin Again' actress recently went with Oxfam to visit a refugee camp in South Sudan to help the organisation raise awareness in their battle against poverty - but thinks it would be tough to do as much for others as the 'Maleficent' star, who is also a special envoy for the United Nations (UN).
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph newspaper, Keira said: ''I admire Angelina Jolie hugely.
''I don't think I could ever be anything like as impressive or authoritative as she is on the world stage.
''She's pretty much devoting her life to her causes, and that's a great thing, a great message. I'm always happy to help in any small way I can.''
As she met refugees, Keira was asked who she was, and felt embarrassed at saying 'actress' rather than ''something else useful''.
She explained: ''When those refugees asked me, 'Who are you?', I really, really wished I could have said, 'I'm a doctor', or something else useful.
''So instead I told them, 'I am somebody who is going to ask people to give lots of money to Oxfam, so they can help you.' ''
