LONDON – The famously large underpants worn by film character Bridget Jones are to be auctioned off to raise cash for some of London's most famous green spaces, Britain's Royal Parks Foundation announced Friday.
The underwear, signed by Grant, will be auctioned off at a charity dinner next week for the foundation.
Organizers hope the dinner will raise $185,000 for the Royal Parks, which provided the setting for scenes in the second film in the series, "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason." One scene in the movie took place in a fountain at Kensington Gardens; another was shot at Regent's Park.
The Royal Parks are some of London's most popular, and also include Hyde Park, St. James's Park and Green Park.
