George to be in Kate Winslet's book to raise funds for Austism

Post by watching on Sun Oct 16 2011, 12:55

From the Oz Sunday paper magazine. An interview with Kate Winslet about a book she is helping put together to raise funds and awareness for Austism. Below is the relevant George part of the interview (in context so it makes sense). Link to whole article at bottom of screen. The book is to be released on 3rd April next year according to Amazon.

I don't need to raise my ****ing profile.
Sunday Telegraph magazine

"Ignorance is one thing Winslet wants to change. About four months after her work on the film, she received a poem written by Keli called ‘The Golden Hat'.

"He'd achieved so much in such a short time. I thought, I have to do something," she recalls. "I was brushing my teeth when I came up with this idea to get a hat and ask lots of high-profile people from all different professions to wear it and somehow make the connection between these creative people with a voice and the world of people who are so limited in their ability to express themselves. That's how I came up with the idea for the book."

The Golden Hat: Talking Back to Autism by Kate Winslet and Margret Ericsdóttir with Keli Thorsteinsson (Simon & Schuster, $29.99) is a collection of self-portrait photographs of some of the world's most famous people, all wearing Winslet's old trilby hat.

"George Clooney is in the kitchen; Justin Timberlake is by his keyboard," explains Winslet. "I have these images of people that they'd never consent to a photographer taking, but because it's on their own terms,
in their own space, they really are intimate. It's fascinating to have this little window on their world."

Winslet asked each of the star subjects to imagine what they'd say if they could only say one thing. "So everyone has given a quote that will accompany their picture. What they've come up with is very powerful."


Once released in April, all proceeds from the book's sales will go to the Golden Hat Foundation."

Photo of George in the book has been released / made public. Link to pic

Not his greatest picture but it's for the benefit of charity so I will zip my lip. Credit to Frenchies for the link and finding the picture on a Kate Winslet fan site.

But they're all in the same mode with the hat. I like his picture.
Shows modesty IMO

I imagine the hat/avert the eyes might be a metaphore for autism (don't people suffering from it have problem making eye contact ? they're sort of cut from the outside world ?)
I like it actually. I like the idea of it being more genuine - and not too professionnaly done... it does sound unexepected
