DA MAN: You’re involved in many humanitarian causes—from Amnesty International’s No Dispares to being a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF. What is it that drives you to become such a philanthropist?
Édgar Ramírez: I think it has to do with trying to be useful to society. I think having access to media, having a voice that people recognize by the virtue of your job, I think that implies a sense of social responsibility. I am not saying that everyone has to do it, but it’s my reality and that’s how I feel about my opinions being heard. There are a lot of people and a lot of causes in the world that don’t have a voice, and I think it is very important that once you are given an opportunity to see your voice amplified, you use it to help other people and advance certain causes. I think that fame shouldn’t just be about getting the fanciest tables at a restaurant, receiving amazing gifts or having access to the most beautiful things and places; fame should be used in a way that could help society.

DA MAN: You have inspired a lot of people. What is it that inspires you?
Édgar Ramírez: Generosity in people. As corny as it may sound, when someone smiles at you for no reason or when someone treats you well, that goes a long way. I think when someone has the ability to be generous, it can be really inspiring. I’ve been the recipient of a lot of generosity in my life and that keeps me grounded and inspired.
