From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Josephine Baker, as a part of the African-American Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s, protested against racism by adopting twelve orphans of different skin color.[1]

In the 2000s, the couples Angelina Jolie/Brad Pitt and Madonna/Guy Ritchie drew media and public attention by adopting several children from Third World countries. The adoptions have been criticized because of alleged preference shown to the parents due to their wealth or celebrity status.

Other celebrities who adopted children from abroad are Mia Farrow (10 children, one of them later marrying Farrow's former partner Woody Allen), Dan Marino, Sharon Stone, Ewan McGregor, Meg Ryan, James Caviezel, and Julie Andrews.
