Just like Tom Hiddleston did, Ben Affleck will live on a $1.50 food budget to raise awareness for global poverty. Starting on April 29th, Ben will eat a boiled egg for breakfast, popcorn for lunch, ketchup packet soup for dinner and he’ll have to smoke actual weeds from his backyard instead of marijuana. Or he can just starve all day and only drink a small coffee from Starbucks or nibble really, really slow on a Strawberry Pop-Tart Ice Cream Sandwich from Carl’s Jr. It’ll be like being in college again.
The annual Live Below The Poverty Line Initiative announced today that Josh Groban, Debi Mazar and Sofia Bush will also be joining Ben’s ass:
We are excited to announce that Ben Affleck will be joining us in the Live Below The Line USA challenge next week. He will be supporting Eastern Congo Initiative (ECI). Join Ben, Sophia Bush, Josh Groban, and thousands of others around the world as we raise attention and funds for some of the best charities out there in the fight against extreme poverty.
I was going to say that Goopy Paltrow should join them since she’s always starving herself, so she might as well do it for charity. But when she fasts, she drinks amniotic fluid from a Northern White Rhino and nibbles on dried petals from a rare Ghost Orchid and those things cost way more than $1.50 a day. Goopy can’t even breathe for less than $1.50, because the machine that pumps purified air into her townhouse costs a lot more than that to run. Goopy will just have her business manager cut a check.
