[ June 9th 2005 ]

Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie will lend her considerable charitable clout to Sir Bob Geldof after agreeing to campaign on behalf of Live 8 to eliminate Third World debt and rewrite trade laws, according to WENN. The Tomb Raider star, who is also an ambassador for the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, will help the former singer drum up support.

An estimated 50,000 people in Africa die unnecessarily every day as a result of extreme poverty. Sir Bob Geldof hopes to turn the heads of World leaders during the G8 summit in July. According to Geldof, leaders from the industrialised nations could eradicate Third World poverty in "moments."

A colleague of Jolie's said: "Angelina won't just be putting her name to Live 8, she's also agreed to sacrifice a considerable amount of time for us, which is pretty much unheard of for a Hollywood star. She's been talking for some time about taking a break from films and we're delighted to be the ones to benefit from it."
