Red Carpet Trendwatch: Hugh Laurie's "Pink"-ie Ring

01/27/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

If during Hugh Laurie’s humorous acceptance speech at the Golden Globes, you found yourself wondering “What is that pink ring on his pinkie?”, you weren’t alone. It turns out that it’s the Promise Ring, created by the Susen G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, and unlike some of the pricier bling we’ve seen on the red carpets, it’s available for only $5 at komen.org with all proceeds going to fund research. With the SAGs coming up this weekend, we’re wondering who else we’ll spot in a charitable mood — nominees Helen Mirren and Forest Whitaker have already previewed the rings for themselves.

Wow what a great way for people do donate who dont have a ton of money…or even people who do have money like Hugh Laurie! Every little bit counts! Thats great that he wore a pink ring, im sure alot of men would be too embarrassed.

It’s a great idea. It’s also great that all the proceeds go to research too.

Cool idea- I would wear one if I had one.

I think it’s a cool item! I checked out komen.org and they sell them in sets of 2 for $5.00. With shipping it was $10.11. Not too shabby for a great cause!

I have been a fan of Hugh Laurie’s since the early 90’s, he was in “The Black Adder” and “Jeeves and Wooster” which showed on PBS.

It’s just what Hugh Laurie would do too!! He is smart and has self-confidence to wear a “pink”ie ring! I am glad he is promoting a good cause! It’s great! Rock on Hugh!

Hugh Laurie is a very talented actor, his natural british voice is beautiful, and of course he is wicked funny! His actor buddy Stephen Fry is very funny too, one can tell they are good friends!

Enjoy and Cheers!

It’s really heartwarming to see that today. People usually are too involved with life’s little issues to do just one simple deed. It’s not hard. And it’s nice to know that even Hollywood’s stars seem to care. It makes them seem a little bit more human.

Hugh Laurie is the best and House is just fabulous. He is such talented actor and just so sweet. Any chance we’ll see more articles on him in People???
