Many celebrities enjoy being volunteers in humanitarian programs

A popular thing for celebrities to do nowadays is participate in humanitarian missions. In a report from the Guardian, an anonymous tipster revealed several "truths" behind these "orchestrated" visits and how the stars really behave during there missions in other countries. Overtime, the stars have earned a fair share of grudges and respect during their visits.

MUNTINLUPA, PHILIPPINES (Catholic Online) - Celebrities frolic with humanitarian missions for several reasons. Some bring joy to a grieving crowd, while others prove to be rowdy stars looking for attention and a few press releases. A recent revelation from a Guardian insider revealed the true nature behind some of these actors and actresses.

According to the insider actors like Sean Penn and Christina Aguilera were not too pleasant during their missions. Sean Penn threatened a group of workers, saying he would shame the people publicly if they did not work hard enough.

Christina Aguilera solely occupied the only air-conditioned tent in Haiti, and all the UN workers were shut out from the tent during one of the cocktail reception visits for the singer-actress, according to the informant.

Stars like Orlando Bloom and Matt Dillon, on the other hand, managed to participate as normal volunteers in some missions. The two would carefully plan and orchestrate there visits to prevent the media and locals from recognizing them - avoiding too much attention in the process.

Angelina Jolie continues to be one of the stars to surprise volunteers. The volunteer and insider got "misty eyed" as he explained that Angelina was the one who "left experts speechless" and "had been to more places than I had," according to The Guardian.

Angelina Jolie also happens to have her own cameraman during her visits.

The revelations provide an insight on what these "humanitarians" are really made of. Several other actresses and actors, whose names were kept confidential, even went as far as wearing revealing clothing during missions, while others would creep out female workers.

Despite the unexpected "behind the scene" attitudes of some stars during these events, their personality and presence offers a breather and a glimpse of hope for people suffering and in need of help in different areas of the world.
