Pleased to meet U2
AS the world’s highest paid supermodel, Gisele Bunchen can afford to be picky with her projects – and we hear she’s in excited talks with Bono to star in U2′s next music video.
The pair reportedly hit it off when Gisele appeared in awareness-raising ads for Bono’s RED charity campaign, for which she refused payment.
The supermodel is no stranger to performing for the camera – she recently signed up for a part in the film Angels and Demons, the sequel to The Da Vinci Code, following her acting debut in the 2004 film Taxi – and it seems that appearances in music videos are all part of the modelling DNA; think Linda Evangelista’s appearance in George Michael’s Freedom, Christie Brinkley as Billy Joel’s Uptown Girl, Helena Christensen’s sultry show for Chris Isaak’s Wicked Game and Kate Moss pole dancing for the White Stripes’ I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself.
