Celebs Bring the Funny for Red Nose Day: Gwyneth Paltrow Hangs Out, Robert Pattinson Crashes a Car & More!

What’s Red Nose Day, you ask?

It first started in Britain in 1988 to raise money for poverty-stricken children in the UK and Africa. This year, the comedy benefit has extended to the United States, with NBC airing a three-hour special tonight, which included a very long list of star-studded hosts and cameos.

Gwyneth Paltrow showed off her Mission Impossible-esque moves by dropping down on a line to the stage but ended up getting stuck on her harness (whoops!),Kellan Lutz offered to strip down to his birthday suit for donations, Ed Sheeransang a duet with his green pal Kermit the Frog and Robert Pattinson even took on the role of a valet driver, but ended up crashing a car. Guess he should stick to his day job.


That wasn’t all, though. Billy Eichner and Martin Short took to the streets to try and get donations from pedestrians (and also introduce Short to people, because apparently there are humans out there who don’t know who he is…what?!), Will Ferrell and Nick Offerman went head-to-head on The Voice, Julia Roberts andHugh Grant got dubbed, the cast of HBO’s Game of Thrones performed a skit with the band Coldplay, U2 took the stage andJohn Mellencamp andKeith Urbanperformed the former rocker’s 1983 hit “Pink Houses.”
