Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie has thrilled LIVE 8 organiser SIR BOB GELDOF by agreeing to campaign on his behalf to eliminate Third World debt and rewrite trade laws.

Jolie, a dedicated UNITED NATIONS ambassador, has impressed the team behind the anti-poverty initiative with her hands-on approach, and she is determined to spend the weeks running up to the Live 8 concerts (02JUL05) drumming up support for the cause.

An insider says, "Angelina won't just be putting her name to Live 8, she's also agreed to sacrifice a considerable amount of time for us, which is pretty much unheard of for a Hollywood star.

"She's been talking for some time about taking a break from films and we're delighted to be the ones to benefit from it."
