Mira Sorvino, who has been a long time supporter to end human trafficking, stunned on the red carpet while attending the 18th Annual From Slavery to Freedom Gala in Los Angeles. She admits that we still have a long way to go saying, “The problem is the crime is growing. There’s 33 million people living in slavery today and only one percent of them currently has a chance of being discovered.” Mira Sorvino added, “Those are crazy statistics and it’s very disturbing.”
Mira Sorvino on working on Mothers and Daughters.
When she’s not using her voice to fight against human trafficking, she’s celebrating the success of her latest film Mothers and Daughters. The movie tells the story of several different women on what it’s like to be a mom. Because Mira Sorvino worked with so many great actresses, we asked if Mira Sorvino had any woman crushes. She quipped, “I think I’m too old to even know what that means really.”
However, she gushed about her co-stars in the movie, which included Susan Sarandon, Sharon Stone, Selma Blair, and Christina Ricci. “So many of the women are my idols, like Susan Sarandon [and] Sharon Stone. These women are titans of the industry.” She continued, “They’re amazing, powerful, incredibly talented women.” She excitedly added, “It’s the number one VOD in the country this weekend, so it’s very exciting.”
Mira Sorvino had nothing but great things to say about the girl bosses she worked with while filming Mothers and Daughters. She revealed that “it was quite terrific” seeing her co-stars in action, especially Selma Blair. “She’s really got this wonderful irony and vulnerability,” Mira dished. The film also stars Courtney Cox, Eva Amurri Martino, and Paul Wesley. Mira Sorvino has a huge line-up of films coming out, including Wake, Beneath the Leaves, Indiscretion, The Red Maple Leaf, and 6 Below. To see the full interview watch the video clip above.
