PLEASE NOTE: This quote has been taken out of context and used in a sensationalised story. Nicole was simply pointing out the fact that Angelina gets more publicity because she is a celebrity, and if she is “slamming” anyone or thing, it is the way the media works.
If there’s one person not too impressed with all the publicity Angelina Jolie gets for her work as a UN ambassador, it would be actress Nicole Kidman.
The Oscar winning Aussie beauty is reported to have said that even though Jolie was doing no more than any nurse in a hospital, she was still getting more attention just because she was famous.
“It’s not like Angelina is any better than a nurse working in a hospital but she’s getting the publicity for her contribution,” Femalefirst quoted her, as telling Scotland’s Daily Record newspaper.
Kidman also praised a doctor friend of hers who worked just as hard as Angelina Jolie, but who did not get recognition as he was not as famous.
“I have a friend who is a doctor and every year he works in Africa for two months for no money. So everyone is on the same playing field, whether you offer your services as the doctor or as Angelina does,” she said.
Like Jolie, Kidman too has been named as a UN ambassador of goodwill and is about to make her first trip to India as goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Development Fund for Women.
