Aww! So sweet!

Salma Hayek is working with Unicef on various children's issues in Africa. She even nursed a sick newborn boy while she was there:



Isn't that terrific? She just shot way up in my estimation. She does drama! She does comedy! (She's been good on 30 Rock this winter.) She lactates unselfishly! She uses her fame to call attention to important issues. And she does so without wearing dorky sunglasses like Bono does.

Here's a post with more context for you.

I watched that last night on a friend's FB page and fully cried. The way that baby looks up at her... it was pretty amazing.

Wow. I never had any feelings about Salma Hayek one way or another before, but that speaks volumes about her. I love it!

Yeah, that's amazing and so cool. Particularly b/c you know she's courting so much backlash and snark by doing it. I'm impressed.
