In a YouTube video of a mock press conference, the Oscar-winning actor and philanthropist jokingly announced that he will refrain from going to the bathroom to raise awareness of the 780 million people worldwide who lack access to clean water and the 2.5 billion who are without a toilet or basic sanitation. “In protest of this global tragedy, until this issue is resolved, until everybody has access to clean water and sanitation, I will not go to the bathroom,” the “Promised Land” actor said. “More people have cellphones than toilets.”
