Now we have officially seen it all! Getting soaked for a good cause, Kristen Stewart accepted Anne Hathaway’s nomination, and took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge with her ‘Equals’ co-star Nicholas Hoult, using ‘dirty bathwater!’
The challenge continues! Equals co-stars, Kristen Stewart, 24, and Nicholas Hoult, 24, are the latest stars to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and raise awareness for the good cause! Urging people to, “please be considerate of California water conservation,” the duo used “dirty bathwater” for their challenge! Find out who the actors nominated below!
Kristen Stewart Ice Bucket Challenge
Kristen and Nicholas were joined in the challenge by their friend, Scott Fahrendor. Adding a twist to the challenge, the three opted to dunk their heads into the buckets of water instead of pour them over their heads. Kristen, was not luckily enough to fully escape though, and once she was done dunking her head the boys picked up a huge bucket and poured it all over her!
Clearly interrupting her train of thought, the actress fumbled over her words while trying to remember who she planned on nominating! Passing the challenge on, Kristen called out singer, Jenny Lewis and actress Brie Larson, giving them 24 hours to complete their task.
Nicholas also called out some famous friends, including, his former co-stars, Craig Roberts, Joe Dempsie and Colin Firth. At the end of the video, they urged those who are participating in the challenge in California to be conscious and responsible with the water that they use in the draught-plagued area, noting that they used “dirty bathwater.”
Corey Griffin, one of the founders of the ALS challenge tragically passed away at the age of 27, after reportedly diving off a two story building and drowning on Aug. 16. According to FOX 25 Boston on Aug. 18, over 1,200 Granite Telecommunications employees gathered together to take part in the largest ALS Ice Bucket challenge.
The event had already been planned prior to Corey’s tragic death, but it was turned into an honorary event to pay tribute to his amazing contribution to ALS.
Corey’s friend, Pete Frates was diagnosed with the disease in 2012, and seeing his struggle, the fallen humanitarian decided to do something about it by starting the challenge. So far the challenge has raised over $20 million towards ALS.
On Aug. 21, friends and family gathered together to say a final goodbye to Corey as he was laid to rest. His good childhood friend, Anthony Aiello, told the Boston Globe, “I’ve never seen him happier than he was in his last few days. Corey was always happy, and that was easy to see, but in the last couple of weeks he was telling his family that everything was falling into place. Of his 27 years, I’d say the last few weeks were the best.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with Corey’s loved ones at this time.
