Mo'Nique

Her job is to make us laugh, but Mo's off-duty deeds often bring us to tears. The actress/comedienne, who supports various women and children's charities, went way above and beyond for My Sister's House, a shelter for abused women. She reportedly planned a red-carpet event for the struggling ladies, providing salon services, fancy clothes and even played paparazzi to make the women feel like stars. At the event, she surprised the women with scholarships and grants to make their dreams come true. Oscar-worthy, indeed.
