Charlie's Angels Sign Up to be Charles' Helpers
Two of the stars of the hit Hollywood movie Charlie's Angels said Wednesday they had agreed to front a charity run by heir to the British throne
Prince Charles, after being charmed by him at dinner.
Actresses Lucy Liu and Drew Barrymore, in London for the royal premiere of their film, said they would be acting as ambassadors for the Prince's Trust.
The charity, of which Charles is a patron, helps create career opportunities for young, disadvantaged people.
At the film premiere in London's Leicester Square, Liu said the Prince of Wales had asked her to help the charity during a fund-raising dinner on Tuesday night at St James's Palace, his London residence.
"I would love to," she said. "I think I will."
Her co-star, Barrymore added: "I would be honored. I want to work hard for it."
She said having dinner with Prince Charles had been "a dream."
"He was a real gentleman and charming and a great listener as well as a great conversationalist."
Cameron Diaz, the third star of Charlie's Angels, a big screen remake of the popular 1970s television series, was unable to attend the premiere because of filming commitments. – Albawaba.com.
