Kim Cattrall Disrobes to Save Titian’s ‘Diana and Actaeon’


You know when stars align and coincidences seem to happen more frequently? Well so it has been for us this week. Just yesterday we caught the first half hour of the wonderful film Big Trouble in Little China, which we’d somehow forgotten co-starred Kim Cattrall. This, on top of remembering that she was also in Mannequin made this writer tell his wife “I forgot that I’m okay with Kim Cattrall” (to which there was little response). And now here we are today, learning by way of Art Info, that we continue to remain okay with her. The news is that she has decided to try and help the British National Gallery save a classic painting, Titian’s Diana and Actaeon, from being sold to a private owner and moved from Edinburgh’s National Gallery where it is now. How will she go about raising awarness/money for the effort? By recreating the painting in the buff. And it isn’t the first time she’s stripped down for the piece, either. She did it last year too. So even if she did decide to skip appearing in Mannequin 2: On the Move, we are officially Kim Cattrall supporters, given her pretty remarkable dedication to the arts.
