Jude Law for UNICEF

Jude Law for UNICEF

Jude Law traveled and filmed in war-town Afghanistan to help promote the United Nation’s annual Peace One Day on Sept. 21, their annual day of worldwide cease-fire and nonviolence.

Accompanied by British filmmaker Jeremy Gilley, the pair interviewed children, government ministers and community leaders.

“Afghanistan will be the focal point for the second film, so it seemed important that Jeremy also have a sounding board, a third-party perspective on his trip,” Jude told reporters Thursday inside a guarded U.N. compound in Kabul.

“This film is about documenting and seeing how Peace Day can save lives,” he added “This is a country I’d always wanted to visit. It was a situation that I found intriguing. I felt that if it was safe for Jeremy it must be safe for me.”

“Wouldn’t it be a wonderful international message to come from a country which is perceived as a country purely of conflict, that this message of peace can sing out of it?” he asked.

You can listen to an audio interview (.ram) of Jude and Gilley.

    Hopefully he’s doing it for the right reasons. He’s probably noticed that the celebrities that are involved in charities are more recognized.

    He also went to a place that could have been dangerous to his life.

    Yes, I lost a friend there and he was not in the military. I don’t think Jude did this just to be recognized.

    You can tell who the serious ones are. They’re the ones who’ve continuously worked, not just one time visits like Scarlett J.

    If he just wants to be in the news, there is no reason for him to go to Afghanistan. He could have easily just spouted all these in the safety of his London house like most celebrities do.

    Considering the troubles that Afghanistan has had for years, I admire Jeremy Gilley’s attempts to do something about it. And kudos for Jude for going with him to see for himself what really is going over there.

    Jude is great! plus I love how he doesn’t need tons of publicity to do these things, he just does it! *coughs,brad and angelina,coughs* they just do it for the camera.

    Linda, the fact that you get to see it, means there was a camera. So you have no point.

    Everyone is putting on their bits to help noting wrong with helpnig

    for those of you who are suspect of jude’s motives. get off your asses and join him. with people like you….you’re dammned if you don’t and dammned if you do. arm chair generals. jude did not need to put himself in harms way. he’s got three children he’s responsible for, it’s just possible he feels the need to do something instead of sitting at a computer being critical. jude god bless you and come home safe.

    Jude you rock my world..!
    He’s no Ken living a plastic life
    He’s a real man and someone who can see past his own ego
    to make a positive contribution
    because genuinely regards peace worth fighting for.

    Jude Law is a true friend of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt!! He was actually the best man when AJ and Johnny Lee Miller got married!

    Ria Says:

    Jude and Angelina have been friends for years. Angelina said she looks on him as a brother. If you recall he was in the documentary that she produced a few months ago. His was about Katrina.

    People love to diss Jude but he has been quietly going on his own way doing charity work himself.

    Blueberry Nights is in limited release and Sleuth is not even being released till October. He is not promoting these movies right now.

    He did not even plan to attend Cannes but he got a call from the Weinstein Company to be there to escort Norah Jones.
