Daniel Craig And Hugh Jackman Turn Their Show An AIDS Fundraiser
Daniel Craig And Hugh Jackman
Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman turned Sunday's (25Oct09) performance of their Broadway show A Steady Rain into an AIDS fundraiser when they literally sold the shirts off their backs.
The Hollywood stars lent their support to the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS campaign after the matinee show, raising $4,000 (£2,670) each by offering lucky fans the chance to buy their sweaty clothes.
After the auction, Craig and Jackman brought the winning bidders backstage and autographed the shirts for their generous devotees.
Sunday's afternoon performance was also one to remember for a whole other reason - it was the first showing of A Steady Rain which hadn't been interrupted by a noisy cellphone.
Jackman told the New York crowd, "(Today was the) first time we've done this whole show without a cellphone going off."
The X-Men star was forced to halt an early preview of the play in September (09) to chastise a theatre-goer whose mobile phone rang repeatedly throughout their performance.
