The star also discusses family and fame
Naomie Harris – who plays Eve Moneypenny in the James Bond films – revealed she regularly volunteers at a local homeless shelter as a way to give back to the community.
The actress also works with the Anne Frank Trust, whose aim is to end prejudice and educate people about social mistreatment. Moreover, Naomie admits she’s deeply inspired by Anne’s diary as she documented her life while hiding from the Nazis during World War II.
She revealed to Prestige Hong King magazine: “I volunteer at a local shelter that gives out food to the homeless, and I work with the Anne Frank Trust. Their mission is to decrease prejudice. I feel very passionately that if you start while people are young and educate them, then they grow up with less bigotry and more acceptance and understanding of each other.”
And Naomie – who is dating Peter Legler – also discussed her relationship with her family as she lives within walking distance from her mother and stepfather. The star enjoys spending as much time with them and likes to bring them to various show business events every year.
She added: “I live on the same street as my family. My brother and sister are 20 years younger, and I love spending time with them. I love dinner parties and having my friends round.
I like big groups of people. (Recently) Warner Brothers put on a screening of ‘Collateral Beauty’ and I was able to invite all my family and friends and then we went out to dinner. That’s my idea of heaven.”
Meanwhile, the actress identifies as a natural “introvert” and admits she had a hard time coping with fame.
“It’s a tough world to navigate. I’m a very private person, more an introvert than an extrovert. Being in this world can be quite wearying for me because it requires me to be constantly visible and step out of my comfort zone. But I’ve seen huge shifts and changes in my personality and my ability to navigate this life as a whole, and I’m really grateful for that.”
