Kate Moss raised £200,000 (equivalent to about $302,285) for the charity Comic Relief by reading Fifty Shades Of Grey on the radio. Ms. Moss has a lovely speaking voice, and she was endearingly shy about reading it live on BBC Radio 1.
She didn’t read much and certainly nothing explicit, but it was weirdly cute. Here’s the excerpt:
He steps out of his shoes and reaches down to take each of his socks off, never taking his eyes off me. I am rendered speechless by the look of hunger in his eyes. Wow … to be wanted by this Greek god. I mirror his actions and step out of my black flats. Suddenly, he reaches for me, backing me up against the wall. Kissing me, my face, my throat, my lips … running his hands through my hair. I feel the cool, smooth tiled wall at my back, and the chill of the ceramic. Tentatively, I place my arms on his upper arms, and he groans as I squeeze tightly.
After she finished she collapsed embarrassed on the sofa.
There’s a bit of an introduction, so to skip to the part where she starts reading, go to 1:04.
