Angelina Jolie has said that she wants to follow in the footsteps of Audrey Hepburn and be as selfless as the Breakfast at Tiffany’s star. While in an interview with NBC’s The Today Show, Jolie — who raises six children with partner Brad Pitt – said she wants to help as many people as possible, reports The China Daily.
“I’m lucky to be in this,” Angelina said, referring to her role as a U.N. Goodwill Ambassador, “And I’m sure Audrey Hepburn felt the same.” Hepburn, passed away in 1993, spent almost 40 years championing the cause of impoverished children across the globe. “She was the fortunate one to be able to meet all those kids around the world,” explains the Changeling star.
She adds: “You know, we’re just in a very fortunate situation that we get to be able to give a voice to these extraordinary people. There’s been refugees since the dawn of time. “And I’m sure, you know, my children will be visiting and learning from refugees in the future.”
