Nicole Kidman vs. Angelina Jolie

Nicole Kidman has hit out at Angelina Jolie for using her charity work for publicity. The Oscar winning Aussie beauty, Nicole Kidman, is reported to have said that even though Angelina Jolie was doing no more than any nurse in a hospital, she was still getting more attention just because she was famous.

"It's not like Angelina is any better than a nurse working in a hospital but she's getting the publicity for her contribution," she quoted her, as telling Scotland's Daily Record newspaper.

The Australian actress is about to make her first trip to India as goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Development Fund for Women.

"I have a friend who is a doctor and every year he works in Africa for two months for no money. So everyone is on the same playing field, whether you offer your services as the doctor or as Angelina does."

Like Nicole, Angelina is also a United Nations goodwill ambassador. Jolie is known for her humanitarian charity work too. She has previously visited victims of the 2005 Pakistan earthquake disaster on behalf of the UN, and donated all the money she and Brad raised from the sale of the first pictures of baby Shiloh to children's charity UNICEF.
