Jeremy Irons Charity Work
Jeremy Irons One of the Sexiest Men in the World
Since I read an article the other day that had Jeremy Irons as one of the sexiest men in the world I have not been able to take him out of my thoughts. And God knows my thoughts are not fit for heaven.
But who is this handsome and sexy British actor? The first time I saw him was in a film called Madame Butterfly. I saw the film dubbed in Spanish so at the time I had not yet heard his voice. The film was unexpectedly avant garde. He played a cool British gentleman in love with a Geisha. Interwoven with allusions to the Puccini opera "Madame Butterfly", is a story of love and betrayal with plenty of intrigue and an unexpected ending. This film and its tortured main character were enough to hook me to Jeremy Irons as one of his unconditional fans.
With time I have learnt that Jeremy Irons is not only one of the sexiest men in the world with a voice that can make you melt, but he is also an active Charity supporter for a variety of associations.
Jeremy Irons supported the fight against AIDS
At the 1991 Tony Awards, Irons was one of the few celebrities to wear the recently created red ribbon to support the fight against AIDS, a Project created by the New York-based Visual AIDS Artists Caucus that same year.
He is also a supporter and patron of the Prison Phoenix Trust and Evidence for Development. A charity registered in England that offers help to prisoners through the disciplines of meditation and yoga,

It aims to provide formal and non-formal education, a nutrition programme and health care for the street children.

Jeremy Irons: The Voice
What can I say here, , I enjoy his trade mark haunting voice. So rich and soft that it makes you melt. It is no wonder that apart from acting he has also given his voice to spoken books and animated characters. The Lion King is one of my favourite children’s films. I watch it with my children every time I can just for the pleasure of listening to Jeremy’ voice in the character of Scar.

Jeremy Irons' Books on Tape
Ordinarily I do not like audio books, but when the book has Jeremy Iron’s voice… well, then that is different. Just imagine lying down on your bed after a long day, you have just come out of a hot bath, still wrapped up in your bathrobe. You are feeling relaxed and cosy, now just turn on the tape and listen to Jeremy whispering in your ears a bedtime story…
