Ansel Elgort has proven the brand new face — and physique — of superstar charity work. The star of “Baby Driver” and the upcoming “West Side Story” remake on Tuesday posted a nude picture of himself to lift cash for a meal program for Brooklyn hospital employees within the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
The barely-safe-for-work Instagram picture, which reveals Elgort in an outside bathe barely protecting his privates, was even taken by his father, acclaimed photographer Arthur Elgort. (He later deleted the picture from his account.)
The actor linked to a GoFundMe web page for Brooklyn for Life!, organized by actor Jeffrey Wright.
“This outbreak is touching all of us, whether or not we come in contact with the coronavirus. Of course, on the frontlines of efforts to protect us from this pandemic are the healthcare workers and the first responders. They’re feeling pressures right now of which most of us are unaware,” Wright wrote on the web page. “As well, small businesses, particularly locally owned restaurants, are facing financial pressures as Brooklyn self-isolates to slow the spread of COVID-19. They’ve had to lay off workers, their revenues have dropped, or they’ve shuttered their doors completely. But many are still rolling by converting their operations to full-time takeout & delivery service. We will work to help address both of these challenges, fueled by your tax-deductible donation.”
He defined that Brooklyn for Life! is an initiative managed by Brooklyn NY for Life!, Inc., ramping as much as 2,500 meals per day by a partnership of eating places within the Brooklyn space.
“Our goal is to fund each Brooklyn for Life! restaurant, enabling them to provide — at no cost to the recipients — at least 75-100 meals per day for delivery to the Brooklyn frontlines of this pandemic,” Wright wrote. “Restaurants are culture in Brooklyn. They’re where we eat, of course. They’re how we stay connected. They’re where we live.”
