Charlize Helps Out

| Filed under: Charlize Theron

wenn21381052.jpg

Blonde beauty Charlize Theron was just named a United Nations messenger of peace this past Friday.

Theron's special focus will be on ending violence against women.

The messengers of peace consist of mainly 10 celebrities from films, music, sports and literature, who are responsible for promoting United Nations activities and goals through the media.

And it seems Theron cares about many causes, such as her involvement and effort to place mobile health clinics all over rural areas of South Africa, where access to health care is limited.

As for Theron's latest role as messenger of peace, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said of the actress, "You have used your voice, compassion and special relationship with the public to create a better world."

George Clooney, Michael Douglas, and Jane Goodall are among the other messengers of peace.

Glad to see some celebrities really are doing good.

    doing good? are you kidding me? this is nothing more that PR for the celeb - maybe show up at some hospital ONCE for a photo opp and that's it, appalling
    -
    I served on countless UN PEACEKEEPING missions when I served in the military and did hella more good that any of these bimbo's ever could. How about a nice award for all my men that served so hard in Timor, Rwanda, Kosovo and Darfur?

    SOUNDS LIKE ANOTHER FANTASTIC BUT INCREDIBLE NOTHING AWARD!



  24. 24

    not that you should worship any celebrity Perez….but I would like to hear a lot more about her good deeds than the ever-annoying and tacky Brangelina.

    Re: Sensitivity

    your body.

    These U.N. titles are such feel good bull shit. Give people props who actually DO SOMETHING!!

    Now see Perez THIS is who you should be writing more about she is far more beautiful and talented than your Angelina and you should love her because she's been so outspoken about gay rights. She is a class act. And she's not one of those celebs jumping on a bandwagon. Charlize starred in an anti rape africa psa back in the 90s before she was famous. She's been an activist for a long time. She's perfect for this platform because when she was 15 she saw her mother shoot her alcoholic father in self defense.She's such a strong woman to come through all that. Look at trainwrecks like Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan, Theron has been through much worse and she handles herself with such class and dignity. The most beautiful woman in hollywood and her performance in Monster is one of the best of all time.

    Re: hotel283 – Charlize is South African and has been through a lot herself. She wasn't fed with a silver spoon you know like most of these celebs. You shouldn't knock her for trying to help especially considering she has bene helping for such a long time even before she was super famous. She has been setting up health clinics in her home in South Africa and been involved in many charities and organizations for many years. Some celebs may do it for PR, but you can't assume all of them do. THe UN saw the stuff Charlize was doing for years without begging for press the way Angelina does, and they asked her to be a spokesperson and she accepted. What do you expect her to turn it down? She's been through a lot in her life and wants to give back. She's not a publicity whore the way Angelina Jolie is.

    Perez you finally got something right - this is who you should be praising instead of that sluttegina Jolie who is just a media whore - Charlize is a class act and has done more good without asking for millions in return - she has more acting ability than alot of other actresses out there - we want more Charlize!!! Love her -

    Re: hotel283 – so true. look at all the 'good' nicole kidman has done for unifem. haven't heard her speak a peep about female circumcision, daughter slaughters or any of the other atrocities committed against women.



  31. 31

    If we are talking about actors and actresses that have made a difference that's all well and good, but JANE GOODALL is NOT and has NEVER BEEN an actress - she is a primatologist and an anthropologist. Yes…she is also a UN Messenger of Peace…but if you are going to name her, why not a few zillion others who have spent their days helping others?!!!!

    One Beautiful woman! Ever see her in the church scene in "Devil's Advocate"??? Oooo lala!!! Worth the price of the DVD!
