BEIJING, June 20 -- Angelina Jolie wants to follow in the footsteps of Audrey Hepburn.

In a new interview with NBC’s The Today Show, Jolie — who raises six children with partner Brad Pitt – admits that she hopes to someday be able to help as many people as the Breakfast at Tiffany’s star.

“I’m lucky to be in this,” Angelina said, referring to her role as a U.N. Goodwill Ambassador, “And I’m sure Audrey Hepburn felt the same.”

Hepburn — who died in 1993 — spent almost 40 years championing the cause of impoverished children across the globe. In 1992, she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom for her work and, like Angelina, was also a U.N. Goodwill Ambassador.

“She was the fortunate one to be able to meet all those kids around the world,” explains the Changeling star. “You know, we’re just in a very fortunate situation that we get to be able to give a voice to these extraordinary people.”

“There’s been refugees since the dawn of time,” she adds. “And I’m sure, you know, my children will be visiting and learning from refugees in the future.”
