Angelina Jolie's Diana inspiration

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie cites late British royal Diana, Princess Of Wales for inspiring her charity work.

The 32-year-old actress, who became involved in human rights activism after filming a movie in formerly war-stricken Cambodia in 2001, hopes to mirror the Princess' efforts in her quest to help heal the world.

The Mr & Mrs Smith beauty says, "Diana inspired me immensely. I followed the work she undertook very closely, especially the issue of landmines.

"It was fascinating that she chose that cause. No matter what I do, I always want to go to refugee camps and meet with the most unfortunate. I have found it a privilege - a way of making me feel alive."
