In a cringe worthy attempt to “lift people’s spirits”, celebrities participated in a video singing “imagine”.
One of the participants, hunk Jamie Dornan, talks about it. He says that he was aware it could be controversial. Adding, "Not being on social media, I wasn't really aware of the negative reaction to it, but I was made aware quickly by some mates."
He continues, "Gal organized it, she organized it with Kristen Wiig. Kristen and I had done a movie together last summer...and we just got along brilliantly" Kristen texted him to participate.
He claims he was a bit confused about the tone of the video — whether it was serious or a joke. While he just filmed his part in his bathroom, he became aware it would be received in a bad way, “I’ll tell you what the problem was. I literally did mine in the toilet of my house. Some of the celebrities had escaped to their second home. There’s too much acreage in the background, I felt. You know, too many beautiful swaying trees, clearly by an ocean, that sort of crap. I was just like, make it normal. I just got dragged along with it. But, listen, you know, what am I gonna do?" Kristen apologized to Jamie for involving him.
