While saying she loves acting, she describes her efforts to stop human trafficking as her "calling".

Mira said activism is so important to her that "in a decade or so, I wouldn't mind just switching to a career in humanitarian causes."

The Romy And Michele's High School Reunion star has been extended as the UN Goodwill Ambassador to Combat Human Trafficking.

The 45-year-old won an Oscar as a prostitute with a golden heart in Woody Allen's Mighty Aphrodite.

She's had meaningful roles in over 50 films and TV productions in her career, and holds a Golden Globe and a host of nominations reserved for the world's best actors and actresses.
