Philanthropy work kept Angelina Jolie away from 'shallow, horrible life'
Washington, Feb 11 (ANI): Angelina Jolie has admitted that humanitarian work helped her remain grounded after finding fame in Hollywood and saved her from leading a "very shallow, horrible life".
The 36-year-old became one of the most sought-after actresses in the movie industry after winning an Academy Award for her performance in 1999's 'Girl, Interrupted', but instead of basking in all the media attention, Jolie threw herself into her philanthropy work.
"Without the balance of doing things that actually matter in the world - and being part of the real world - then I would have been left in a bubble. That would have felt very empty and I probably would have just had a very shallow, horrible life," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
"I'm very lucky that I've been allowed to, in the last 10 years, to travel and go into the world and welcomed into areas of the world where I see people and work with people who are survivors of war and refugees and people, just from everywhere and all walks of life and so I have a real view of the real world," she added.
