Put Yourself In His Shoes And Give Landmines The Boot
Wednesday, November 29th, 2006

Bowie has joined with artists such as Ringo Starr, Johnny Mar, Pamela Anderson, Dame Judi Dench, and Lily Allen to auction off an autographed pair of his shoes to benefit the Mines Advisory Group‘s Give Landmines The Boot event. The money made from the auction will go to benefit the charity’s effort to clear unexploded landmines from conflict-ridden countries such as Afghanistan, Vietnam, and Sudan. At the time I’m posting this, the top bid on the shoes is ₤510.00. Not only are those some gorgeous boots, but the money goes to a good cause! So if you’ve got the cash, why don’t you give it a go?

Some weeks back we picked up a few entertainment sites recounting Hugh Jackman’s first meeting with Bowie on the set of The Prestige. The gist of the articles was that Sailor was a bit put off when Jackman revealed that he’d sold a ticket he had to one of Bowie’s concerts when he was 13. Read the original post here.

A recent news article from MSN suggests that if Bowie was ticked, he has since put it behind him. The two celebrities learned that they share more than a film credit in common as they both reside in the same Manhattan complex, Bowie and Iman living one floor below Jackman and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness. Moreover, both couples are parents to six-year-olds, Bowie and Iman with their daughter, Lexi, and Jackman and Furness with their adopted son, Oscar. According to Jackman, their two little ones have become fast friends and get together every so often for playdates.
