You might know the name Christy Carlson Romano. She’s from Milford, was the voice of “Kim Possible,” and has starred on Broadway. She also made a bet with her husband about “Fifty Shades of Grey” and lost. And the world is now better for it.
She objected to the subject matter in the film – namely, that what happens between the characters of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey is consensual sex, instead of being in an undefined “grey” area (ugh…I already know too much about this movie).
Under the impression that after the first weekend, the movie was gonna tank and would no longer be the number one film at the US box office, she made a bet with her husband that she would stand outside on her NYC balcony in the coldest winter imaginable for 60 seconds…in lingerie.
Deep down, she probably knew she was gonna lose, but if it leads to attention to her #CONSENT cause, then keep right on betting, Miss Romano!
