Angelina Jolie and Queen Elizabeth II, surprisingly, have some common interests and passions. According to a report from Us Weekly, the Queen and the Hollywood superstar both hope to protect the environment.
In a documentary made for TV called The Queen’s Green Planet, Jolie goes to Namibia along with her kids to support the movement against deforestation.
The actress admitted in the clip that the importance of planting trees after chopping them down is understated. Jolie said this lesson is something her children have certainly learned from the Queen.
However, Elizabeth’s points didn’t go unchallenged. Jolie explained her kids would often ask her why she and the Queen cared about what happened to forests in Africa.
Why is it important to either party? The actress tells her kids the importance of biodiversity, its effect on the environment, and the need for the world to implement more sustainable sources of energy creation.
Industries such as coal, gas, oil, and other non-renewable entities create all kinds of problems including soil-erosion and contamination, the depletion of precious water resources, and deforestation which leads to the destruction of essential ecosystems, ones which are vital for the support of human and animal life.
Moreover, Jolie told her children the Queen cares a lot about the world and wants young people everywhere to prosper in the future.
Jolie explained that she and the Queen both understand the importance of creating a future where everyone can live in peace, harmony, and safety, with the vast majority of their needs met.
“The trees affect the environment, the soil, the shade, natural resources, the animals, the ecosystem, and the local cultures,” said the Academy Award-winning actress.
