Angelina Jolie Says Charity Work Saved Her From ‘Shallow Life’
Hollywood star Angelina Jolie firmly believes that she would be leading a “very shallow, horrible life” if she weren’t engaged into humanitarian work.
The actress says she is glad she threw herself into her philanthropy work, Zee News reported, citing Contactmusic.
“Without the balance of doing things that actually matter in the world – and being part of the real world – then I would have been left in a bubble. I’m very lucky that I’ve been allowed, in the last 10 years, to travel and go into the world and welcomed into areas of the world where I see people and work with people who are survivors of war and refugees and people, just from everywhere and all walks of life and so I have a real view of the real world,” Jolie said.
“I’m very touched and very moved by people and what they overcome. They have always reminded me to just wake up in the morning and be grateful that your children are healthy. Nothing else matters,” she said.
