Even though 75% of Americans say that they would step in and help a stranger being abused, the reality is most people do not help. For example, among the 70% of women who experienced domestic violence and then told someone about it, more than half (58%) said that no one helped them. But 64% of Americans say if we talk more about domestic violence and sexual assault, it would make it easier to help someone.

The NO MORE PSA campaign was spearheaded by the Joyful Heart Foundation , one of the many championing organizations behind the creation of the NO MORE symbol, and was directed by actress and advocate Mariska Hargitay, the Foundations President and Founder, in her directorial debut. The campaign, involving more than 40 celebrities and public figures to engage bystanders to get involved, was developed in partnership with Y&R and photographed by world-renowned Timothy White. “Being a part of NO MORE from the beginning has been a great privilege, especially the launch in Washington DC, where I got to stand with Vice President Biden and Attorney General Holder,” said Hargitay. “And if that wasn’t enough, directing the NO MORE PSAs was a dream come true. Society continues to misplace shame and blame on survivors.

As artists we need to feel like were appreciated and were understood and were given the breathing room, because were constantly in front of the camera giving, giving, giving, giving.

The 43-year-old actress says she was really disappointed by Sundays telecast. I didnt see any diversity in the Emmys at all. The Emmys felt so dated to me, she said in an interview Monday.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt rank third with a combined $50 million in estimated earnings. Unlike the other top couples on our list, they dont have larger businesses built around their fame the vast majority of their money comes from their film pay.
