evamendes.jpgA flurry of Hollywood celebrities including Ben Affleck, Garth Brooks, Dakota Fanning, Morgan Freeman, Eva Mendes, Joaquin Phoenix, Jeremy Piven and Reese Witherspoon are joining the AARP’s “Divided We Fail” campaign to bring attention to the domestic issues that worry Americans most: health care and financial security.  In partnership with Hollywood’s non-profits organizations, the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) and the Motion Picture & Television Fund (MPTF), the campaign seeks bipartisan cooperation in finding solutions to achieving affordable, quality health care and financial security.

A broadcast public service announcement will feature the various celebrities and was directed by actor and director Tony Goldwyn — grandson of legendary producer and EIF Founder Samuel Goldwyn. According to the website:

Tony Goldwyn, who directed the PSA said, “When I heard about the Divided We Fail project, I was really attracted to it. I thought, ‘This is exactly what I’ve been thinking.’ And I know it’s what a lot of other Americans have been thinking too. People wind up feeling that the two sides are just too far apart; that these problems are so big and complex that we can’t fix them. What we’re saying is, if we all get together and start talking, we can. Going forward, the entertainment industry will work to get these issues front and center for everyone by doing what we do best, telling the stories of real Americans who are struggling with these problems.”

Check out the PSA here and learn how you can get involved to support this effort!
