Actress and philanthropist Mira Sorvino is a beachside beauty in the latest issue of Hamptons magazine. The actress, who dons a Trina Turk dress, opens up to the magazine about motherhood and her work with the United Nations to prevent human trafficking in the accompanying interview.
“It’s something that I’m very heavily involved in; in fact, I did another film called ‘Trade of Innocents’ that is coming out this fall that’s about the trade of children in Cambodia. But trafficking is everywhere in the world, and the United States is one of the worst offenders,” she explained. “It’s tied with the illegal arms trade as the second largest criminal industry on the earth, just after drugs. It makes $32 billion a year worldwide. There are about 300,000 kids at risk in the US every year, and only one in 100 victims are ever rescued. Once you find out about it, you can’t look away, and once you’ve met someone who has been bought and sold as an object, been beaten and denied their basic human rights, you can’t ever forget that. You meet these survivors of human trafficking and they blow you away with their courage and the misery that they’ve lived through.”
Sorvino proves through her honorable work that she is beautiful inside and out. For the rest of her Hamptons magazine editorial, check out the gallery below.
