Washington, Apr 29 (ANI): American actress Julianne Moore has slammed stars like Angelina Jolie and Madonna as deliberately seeking media attention for their humanitarian efforts.

The 47-year-old actress states that she is very careful not to bring her own political and social activism into the limelight, and that she makes a conscious effort to hide it.

“It’s definitely the ‘to whom much is given’ thing. And we have a tremendous amount of privilege, Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

Moore further voiced that she just cannot understand why stars get so much attention from the press for the work they do to help others.

“But, at the same time, I don’t know why so much emphasis is placed on celebrities who volunteer. Most people do things in their daily lives. It’s just normal,” she added.

Moore currently sits on the board of pro-choice organisation Planned Parenthood and works in support of U.S. campaigns for international non-profit organisation Save the Children. (ANI)
