It's pretty hard not to totally idolise Emma Watson. 

From her talent to her dedication to using her famous face for good causes, we think she is pretty amazing (even if she does make us feel a tad inadequate in our lives.) 

And now it seems that she is focusing on social issues as the 25-year-old has decided to take a break from acting in order to focus on her activism. 

The former Harry Potter actress is planning to take a year out from the film industry to focus on her role as an Ambassador for Women with the United Nations. 

"I'm taking a year away from acting to focus on two things, really. My own personal development is one. I know that you read a book a day. My own personal task is to read a book a week, and also to read a book a month as part of my book club," she told Paper Magazine. 

"I'm reading a lot this year, and I want to do a lot of listening. I want to listen to as many different women in the world as I can."

Emma's gender equality campaign with the UN will be a focal point of her acting sabbatical. 

"Our HeForShe IMPACT champions are ten CEOs who for the first time will be releasing to the media what their companies look like internally.

"Big companies like Vodafone, Unilever and Tupperware will be standing up to the media and really acknowledging the issues within their own companies and talking about how they are planning to address these issues as HeForShe IMPACT champions."

You go girl!

The Brangelina family is about to grow a little bit bigger!

Angelina Jolie and husband Brad Pitt have reportedly adopted a two-year-old boy from Syria, bringing their family total up to seven.

The A-list couple already have three adopted little ones – Maddox (12), Pax (11) and Zahara (9), plus three biological children, Shiloh (8) and twins Vivienne and Knox (5).

Brad and Ange made the decision to rescue the young boy from the Altinozu refugee camp in Turkey, after Angelina travelled there earlier this year as part of her work with the United Nations, for whom she works as an ambassador for refugees.

The actress was reportedly moved to tears upon meeting the little one, named Moussa.

"Angelina heard about him from a translator and she was obviously upset, but Moussa was just beaming from ear to ear and when he saw she was wiping tears from her eyes he toddled up to her and gave her a hug and it was a very emotional moment and everyone was suddenly laughing and smiling," a charity worker told Woman's Day magazine. 

"She kissed him on the top of his head and then they were basically inseparable for the rest of the visit."

After several checks to confirm that Moussa was indeed an orphan, Angelina was reportedly able to begin the process of adopting him.

No official announcement has been made by the couple as yet, but if the news is indeed true we are delighted for them and little Moussa.
