For the last few years I have had a growing concern for our planet and our impact on it. It’s unbelievable that we as humans live with an expectation that one-day someone will come and rescue us from the devastation that we are causing.
I have never been incredibly vocal in the media. I do my best to remain private, however, I believe strongly in education, and when it comes to certain humanitarian and environmental issues that I believe in, the word and the message must get out.
I am an Ambassador for Oxfam, and a staunch supporter of SOS Children International. These organizations have opened my eyes to serious problems facing people on this planet, and the environment itself.
I have had the blessing and opportunity to travel to various parts of the world as a result of my modeling and acting career. I have seen incredible cultures and spent time with wonderful people, however I have also seen the seemingly never-ending industrialization of our planet.
Cities like Moscow, Bangkok, and Hong Kong, not to mention my home city of Los Angeles, have more congestion and contribute greater amounts of pollution than most countries put out as a whole.
