Thandie Newton Wants Us Thinking About Darfur Now

Who are all these women? Well, two of them are the Hanson brothers with their wives just outside the Los Angeles premier for the documentary film, “Darfur Now.” Jessica Biel, Josh Peck (of the Nickelodeon show “Drake & Josh”) and Thandie Newton were in attendance, despite the fact that the two stars featured in the film, Don Cheadle and George Clooney, were unable to attend the event. Thandie, however, spoke on behalf of fellow Hollywood celebrities, who hope to use their fame to evoke political change.

“I think that entertainment and showbusiness is a fantastic way of reaching people and to be more conscious of what needs to be reached out to people not just numbing our brains.”

I don’t know about you, but I rather like having my brain numb. Just kidding! I too care about issues! Magazine issues! SYKE! But seriously. I have a college education.
