AnnaLynne is officially Angelina 2.0: not only are they two super gorgeous actresses, but AnnaLynne wants to devote more time to humanitarian work, become the next female action star AND leave Hollywood behind!
It was fun while it lasted, but it sounds like AnnaLynne McCord is beginning to doubt whether Hollywood is the place for her.
“It’s the humanitarian world that has grabbed my heart,” the 23-year-old starlet explained to HollywoodLife.com exclusively at Crest 3D White’s Breakthrough Awards in Hollywood, Calif. August 15. “I started to work a lot in this industry and to get really bummed out by the egocentric, everything is about me, blah blah, blah [attitude of Hollywood].”
She continued, “I’m excited that Breakthrough has given me this opportunity, and I’m actually going to talk to my peers about something that’s close to my heart – the fight to end human trafficking. It’s a serious issue and I don’t feel like enough people know [about], especially in young Hollywood. If they use their power and their influence on the youth today, we could make changes in this world. It’s been a kind of remolding of my life [lately]. From when I was nine years old, I was like ‘I want to be a movie star’ but then you get to places and you realize it’s not always what it’s cracked up to be.”
Sounds to us like AnnaLynne is modeling herself after U.N. Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie – and AnnaLynne doesn’t deny she wants her life and career paths to follow Angie’s. “[Angelina] is one of the most incredible women I’ve ever seen in this industry.I would love to be half the woman she is!”
Another thing she wants: to be an action hero like the 35-year-old Salt star. “Bye, bye male superheroes!” she laughed. “It’s all about the Angelina Jolie’s and the future AnnaLynne McCord comic book star. I love strong females. I’d love [to play] a strong female superhero role that shows the male superheroes that we can keep up, that we can kick butt too!”
