Video: Kate Moss Gives a Dramatic Reading of ’50 Shades of Grey’ for Charity
Kate Moss stopped by BBC Radio 1 to read ’50 Shades of Grey’ aloud as part of the fundraising event Red Nose Day. Check it out here!
Just because there hasn’t been as much random and slightly bizarre 50 Shades of Grey news lately doesn’t mean that it’s gone away. Au contraire—between the continuous casting rumors and this, we’ve got aaaaaaaall the 50 Shades news we could hope for. ESPECIALLY this. Because…. Well, just watch it!
You see, notoriously silent supermodel Kate Moss took part this year in BBC Radio 1’s efforts to raise money for the Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day charity event. How? If, the station told its listeners, they managed to raise £200,000 (roughly $302,860), Kate Moss would read an excerpt from 50 Shades to them over the airwaves. Unsurprisingly, they reached their goal (with a reward like that, how could they not?), so Kate stopped by Nick Grimshaw’s Radio 1 Breakfast Show this week to make good on her end of the deal. Perhaps her most impressive feat is that she managed to get through it without laughing—until, of course, the very, very end, at which point she burst into peals of laughter and threw herself over the back of the couch. Check it out:
Red Nose Day—which, by the way, is today!—is a UK-wide fundraising event organized by Comic Relief. On Red Nose Day, everyone, including celebrities, is encouraged to put on a Red Nose and do something funny for money. Its goal is to unite the nation to try to make a difference to people across Africa and the UK who are facing terrible injustice or living in desperate poverty. A worthy cause if we’ve ever heard one.
Happy Red Nose Day, Bettys!
