“Avatar” star Sam Worthington, 46, says humans are destroying nature in his homeland Australia closely. “I swam in the Great Barrier Reef for the first time when I was 19. It was full of color. Recently I was back there and it was full of gray spots. It’s unfortunate,” the actor told the German press.
The Great Barrier Reef on the northeast coast of Australia is 2000 kilometers long with thousands of coral reefs. Due to high greenhouse gas emissions and global warming, it is considered very dangerous.
In “Avatar” sequel “The Way of Water”, director James “Jim” Cameron (68) also deals with the destruction of oceans and their creatures. “Jim has a deep connection with water. He dived to the bottom of the Titanic and the Mariana Trench,” Worthington said. “It certainly reflects what we as humans are doing with the environment.”
The 46-year-old stars as ex-soldier Jack Sully, now one of Pandora’s blue residents, in the sci-fi adventure currently running in cinemas.
