    Knightley's mission focused on the organization's efforts to raise money in order to provide polio vaccinations to millions of children around the globe.

    "It doesn't need to be like this," the actress says in a video chronicling her visit to the region. "Every minute of every day, three children die needlessly from a disease that could have been prevented by a simple, lifesaving vaccine."

    Yep. Righton is one lucky fella.
