Aishwarya Rai: UNAIDS New Goodwill Ambassador!

Aishwarya Rai and Naomi Watts pose for a photo at the Global Partnership Forum Women Leaders event held at The Yale Club on Monday (September 24) in New York City.

The two actresses, who spoke at the event, were joined by fellow activists First Lady of Mali Lobbo Traore Toure, UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibe, Director of The Earth Institute at Columbia University Jeffrey Sachs, and Coumba Toure.

That same day, Aishwarya was named the UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador.

“Spreading awareness on health issues, especially related to women and children, has always been a priority for me,” Aishwarya said in a statement. “And now, as a new mother, I can personally relate to this – the joys and concerns of every mother and the hopes that we have for our children.”

“I strongly believe that every baby should be born free from HIV. And I wish that every woman living with HIV stays healthy and has access to treatment. I promise that with UNAIDS, I will do my utmost to make this happen,” she concluded.

    Naomi Watts looks cute. As for the other women; my mother always said if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all. So……no comment.

  • thighmegatampon

    She’s gained a little bit of weight but she’s still beautiful. The title of Most Beautiful Woman in the World is a lot to live up to..

  • somali girl

    Aishwarya is so fat that she swallowed Neptune’s rings and now they’re orbiting around her neck.

  • wandalismus

    looks like she is in no hurry to lose the baby weight…shame – a little bit less of her and she would be miss universe again

  • Rebecca

    Aishwarya looks awesome as do all the other women on the panel. Best wishes.

  • KK

    Aishwarya is one of the most beautiful women and also a very good actress. I know she gave birth a few months ago.. but wish she gets back to shape soon. It will be a shame if she doesn’t!

  • em

    @thighmegatampon: the ‘weight’ was from having a baby and people have been giving her sh i t ever since. she’s beautiful no matter her size.

  • Kirsten

    I like Aishwarya for her heart, personality and humanitarian efforts. However, I have never really been stunned by her looks. She is a pretty woman but I have always thought other Bollywood actresses and some of my friend from India are more beautiful. She does not look the best here but she probably still has a little left over baby fat. That is great that she continues to be active with the UN.

  • yeller

    really, JJ you guys publish this fake and lying woman?!
    UN ambasador for lying outta her teeth on national TV
    This is the same liar who said I don’t and wont endorse any ‘whitening’ ‘fairness’ products, and BAM, she was the fool who had over and over again endorsed beauty products from Loreal, etc that claim to ‘whiten’ ‘make you fair’
    Dispecable person

    @yeller: angelina jolie modeled for louis vuitton but also works for UNICEF. whats the difference exactly?

  • Straight

    holy crap, i know it’s not pc to comment on an actress’s weight, but geez, it’s taking her forever to lose the baby fat. she hasn’t lost much in the past few months. this is her job, isn’t it, to look beautiful? agree with the commenter up there…there are other more beautiful women in BW.

  • agreed

    @Straight: that’s because she’s not even trying to lose the weight…i agree,it is her job to look fit and its been nearly a year since she gave birth and it looks like she hasn’t lost much weight at all,she doesn’t have to look like a knockout but it should at least look like she’s trying considering she hasn’t retired or anything

  • AdamEvans

    just as Janice implied I am surprised that you can make $7322 in 1 month on the internet. did you look at this (Click on menu Home more information)

    omfg,Aishwarya was so beautiful before! she looks like a very pretty Jaba the hutt now! :(

  • ladyb

    I told people around the Cannes Festival that Aishwarya Rai is not going to lose the baby weight. I don’t think she cares how much she weighs. She has never being the diet/exercise type and I don’t think she will ever be.

  • Keley

    She looks ugly. Honestly she is not beautiful. She looks like a sunburned pig.


    Ash is a fat ass !

  • gg

    ya this bimbo was miss world … and took a pledge to promote and serve the community during the world pageant … ended up endorsing cosmetics and insult India’s wheatish complexion and promoting fairness cream and photoshop her pic to promote she is one among the west ! .. she has no personality or slef dignity ……… enough said she is just a big embarrassment to India !

  • Lisa

    I hadn’t seen Aishwarya for ages. She looks beautiful as well as Naomi.

  • Peapo

    I think Aishwarya Rai is beautiful. People can be so cruel to people who are not size zero’s. Does perfect weight make you a better person, a better mother, wife, actress. We are sensitive towards race, religion, sexual preference but it is almost encouraged to make fun of people if they need to lose 100 pounds or even 10. It is ludicrous EPECIALLY after a Oman heas given birth. Give her a break. No doubt there are mostly women posting on this sight and they are so cruel. Does it make you feel better knocking other people down? Well if it does your happiness is fake and foul and will no doubt disappear. Look in the mirror. Are you perfect? Well than shut up!

  • Kliv

    Most beautiful woman! So stunning!

  • Manel

    Aishwarya Rai has been the most beautiful woman that I have ever laid my eyes upon. She will always be my dream woman. Give her sometime and I am sure she will come close to her earlier figure. Good luck to her. Each and everyone who has such mean comments are all so jealous of this beautiful lady.
