Unlike some celeb-wannabes whose only claim to fame is extraordinary fertility, Ed Norton is a movie star – a talented actor with great range, and also…a do-gooder! Someone who isn’t just wasting his money and star-power away on expensive cars and young women is so rare nowadays. And that’s one of the reasons I love Ed Norton. Other major reason is…he’s hot in that moody-artsy-sexy way. Definitely would take him over Brad Pitt any day. Pitt is so overrated! Sorry, Jo!
So if you haven’t heard yet, Norton participated in the New York Marathon last weekend, running with three Maasai warriors that he trained with in Africa, in support of the “the preservation of biodiversity within the Maasai tribal lands of East Africa by promoting conservation, education and health services within the Maasai community”. And not only did he finish the 26 mile race, he crossed the finish line in 3 hours, 48 minutes and 1 second! That’s an awesome result (took me 35 minutes to run 5K in the Run for the Cure)! Snaps for Ed Norton!
Happy Wednesday, everyone!
