When I first saw Grace Kelly in 'Rear Window' my jaw hit the floor with a resounding thud and stayed there for the rest of the film...



Will you stop playing with that radio of yours, I'm trying to get to sleep!

Vanessa Redgrave, award-winning actress, humanitarian and political activist

"I've come to see through the course of my life that people understand what I've tried to do, however inadequately I do it. I've just found people have come to understand me and be glad that I tried to do what I tried to do. And I do feel very inadequate about it, but I feel I must try . . . I think that any citizen can understand that you must raise your voice and do the best you can to speak out."

Angelnia Jolie, actress and promoter of humanitarian causes throughout the world, noted for her work with refugees as Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

"We cannot close ourselves off to information and ignore the fact that millions of people are out there suffering. I honestly want to help. I don't believe I feel differently from other people. I think we all want justice and equality, a chance for a life with meaning. All of us would like to believe that if we were in a bad situation someone would help us."
