Ashley Judd is using her celebrity influence to make a change and a genuine difference in the world.
It seems the 47-year-old actress has been inspired by Angelina Jolie as she is currently in the northern Jordanian city of Mafraq visiting refugees from war-torn Syria.
The Double Jeopardy star was seen cradling and embracing the children, and talking with other Syrian refugees in the camp.
Angelina famously visited Syrian refugees in recent months.
During her humanitarian, the mother of six said that the issues in Syria have created a wave of human suffering.
Ashley has clearly taken the same stance on the matter and can be seen emotionally and visually moved by the individuals in the camp.
The American actress has never had children of her own and for her there is a very good reason for that. She told the Sunday Mail that she feels it would be selfish to procreate with the amount of children who are starving to death in impoverished countries.
The controversial statement attracted worldwide attention and as a result Ashley received a fair share of criticism.
The actress believes it isn't fair for people to put their resources into making their own children when those resources can help children that are already born and suffering.
She strongly believes that through service to refugee camps and impoverished countries we can transform the world into a place where no child ever needs to be born into poverty or abuse again.
Ashley says she already feels like a mother to all the children already out there. She likes nurturing orphaned or abandoned children who need love, care and attention
Judd is best known for her movie thrillers High Crimes and Kiss The Girls. She has also bee in 2012's Missing. And in 2014 she appeared in Divergent.
The beauty - whose sister is country singer Wynonna - will next appear in Trafficked and Good Kids.
She also will pop up in the reboot of Twin Peaks and the sequel Tangles: Before Ever After.
Jolie, meanwhile, has been in London with her family.
Her husband Brad Pitt has been shooting his sequel to World War Z in the country. The pair reportedly have rented a massive mansion that is more than suitable for her six children.
Due to Angelina's dedicated service to the cause of refugees she's been asked to deliver a keynote speech on the global refugee crisis.
The Maleficent actress will give the speech in the programme, World On The Move. The show will be broadcast from the BBC Radio Theatre and will also air across several BBC shows on May 16.
