Stars make shocking video for the ONE campaign to put a stop to famine

A whole host of our favourite stars have come together to create a powerful video to launch the Hungry No More campaign, part of ONE; a global anti-poverty group co-founded by music legend Bono.


George Clooney

George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Jessica Alba, Idris Elba, Bono, Annie Lennox, Colin Farrell and Bill Nighy are amongst the familiar faces who appear in 'The F Word: Famine is the Real Obscenity' video.

Joe Jonas

They all say 'the F word' (as does Joe Jonas, which particularly shocked us!) before explaining that the real obscenity is the famine in the Somalia and the fact that children are starving in 2011. Drought is an act of nature. Famine is man-made.

Jessica Alba

It's not the usual 'appeal' video and definitely has great shock appeal. Other celebs who have got involved include Bear Grylls, Clive Owen, Evan Rachel Wood, Justin Long, Kristen Davis, Lily Cole, Rob Lowe and Vincent Cassel.

Bono

Bono said: "More than 30,000 children have died in just 3 months. Mothers are forced to decide who to feed and who to let die. In 2011? That's obscene. This is complicated, no-one's pretending it's easy."

He added: "There are things that can be done, and if we really believe the life of a child in East Africa is worth the same as the lives of our own children, we have to act."

Bill Nighy and Annie Lennox

The way we can act is by visiting www.ONE.org and signing a petition to hold world leaders to account for promises they have made to ensure people are hungry no more.
