Eva Green said she admires Angelina Jolie for her “good heart”.

The Bond Girl revealed she’s impressed by the Changeling star’s dedication to good causes, saying: “What Angelina Jolie does is fantastic, she has a great heart and she’s very, very involved and it is important.”

Eva is doing her own bit for charity and has launched Montblanc’s Meisterstuck special edition pen as part of their Signature For Good campaign, which raises money for Unicef’s worldwide education and literacy programmes.

“If you can help, and your image can help to raise money or to make people understand things faster or clearer you should,” the French actress said.

Eva went on: “I read somewhere that there are more than 150 million people who can’t read which is kind of crazy, it’s like a different planet.

“To help people in the third world get educated and learn how to read and write is so important, I mean it is such an important human right.”

    I am afraid that the number is much higher, almost 850 million according to UNESCO statistics http://www.uis.unesco.org/en/stats/statistics/UIS_Literacy_Regional2002.xls
    I strongly agree with Eva that in today’s world stars involvement is the most powerful way to pass messages for good reason (see environment, human rights, PETA etc)

    that’s a good thing for Eva to do. i support her on her causes! 🙂

  3. Tango_down Says:

    So is Eva also going to adopt third world’s children ? 🙂

  4. George Says:

    Tango_down: But not from Malawi. It’s occupied… 🙂

  5. Ea Says:

    I really hope not! It’s great that people like Jolie and Madonna uses their position to help others, but the whole adopting-thing seems a bit over the top.

    Plus I don’t believe in adoption (I’m adopted myself), no one should grow up knowing their parents didn’t want them….

  6. Tango_down Says:

    But it’s too late, she’s already followed Angelina’s example by adopting Griffin 😆

  7. spot Says:

    Ea: i agree about everything on your first statement. i offer a *hug* for your second statement 🙂

    Tango_down: we actually haven’t seen Griffin in a while. he needs his own exposure as Eva’s very own “child” 😆

  8. Ea Says:

    Spot: perhaps she has gone all “Tom Cruise” and is hiding him from the media… ;-P

    And thanks for hug and agreeing…

  9. spot Says:

    Ea: oh god. i hope she doesn’t do that! Eva and Griffin is one mighty cute tandem!

    Agreed, he’s so cute, and it’s so cool she brings him everywhere….
