Angelina Jolie Los Angeles, Aug 15 (IANS) Actress Eva Longoria says she admires Angelina Jolie for the humanitarian work she does as a UN special envoy and the charitable acts she and fiance Brad Pitt carry out.

Longoria says Jolie is an inspiration to her and many others.

“I admire Angelina. She does the work. She’s not just a spokesperson, she is a hard worker and she gets it done. She is authentically tied to the causes she cares about and she knows so much. She is so knowledgeable of the world situation, so everything I am an advocate for,” contactmusic.com quoted Longoria as saying.

The 37-year-old Longoria has her own charity organisation, The Eva Longoria Foundation, which aims to help impoverished Latina women and kids.

Longoria insists it is important for her to give back to her own community.

“The Eva Longoria Foundation raises funds primarily for Latina women and children. I will be having a Global Gift Gala to raise money in Marbella. And I’m going to have one in Istanbul,” she said.
