FACE 4 : Angelina Jolie: Angelina Jolie is a very famous actress who played the part of Maleficent in a recent Disney film. She is is married to a famous actor and makes millions of dollars as a movie star, however it is not the movie star part of her life that makes her a Face of Creativity --it is her humanitarian work that creativity admires most. It was while she was in Cambodia in 2001, shootingLara Croft: Tomb Raider, that Angelina Jolie became aware of the suffering of the people in that war-ravaged country — “my eyes started to open,” she would later say. That experience — and a greater understanding of a worldwide humanitarian crisis – led the actress to contact the United Nations for Refugees later that year. In the years since, her work on behalf of the homeless and dispossessed has taken her to more than 30 countries — including a few war zones — and to Washington, D.C., where she has pushed for legislation to assist refugees in troubled regions around the world.

She worries about what her children will eat and how to keep them safe. I don't know why this is my life and that's hers…But I will do as my mother asked, and I will do the best I can with this life to be of use to others." (Angelina Jolie)
