The 41-year-old actress, who serves as a Global Ambassador for YouthAIDS, was named this year’s Hollywood Hero. The yearly award recognizes an exceptional entertainment industry humanitarian.
“I’m just the front woman,” Ashley said. “I was just lucky that this wonderful organization was put in my lap and I had the opportunity to be involved with them.”
Mandy Moore also started working with the organization but confessed that she was so nervous to meet Ashley on Monday. “I was a fumbling geek when I met her!” Mandy said. “She’s so inspiring. I’d like to follow in her footsteps.”
