Angelina Jolie London, June 21 (IANS) Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie says she wants to follow in the footsteps of late British actress and humanitarian Audrey Hepburn.
The “Tomb Raider” actress, who is raising six children with superstar partner Brad Pitt, admits that she hopes to someday be able to help as many people as the “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” star, reports China Daily.

“I’m lucky to be in this,” Jolie said, referring to her role as a UN Goodwill Ambassador. “I’m sure Audrey Hepburn felt the same.”

Hepburn, who died in 1993, spent almost 40 years championing the cause of impoverished children across the globe. In 1992, she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom for her work and like Jolie was also a UN Goodwill Ambassador.

“She was the fortunate one to be able to meet all those kids around the world. You know, we’re just in a very fortunate situation that we get to be able to give a voice to these extraordinary people,” said Jolie.

“There’s been refugees since the dawn of time,” she added.
