Rebecca Romijn debuted her latest ad for the Got Milk? campaign featuring her Milk Mustache and more importantly — twin daughters Dolly and Charlie, 1. The event was held at the W Hotel in Los Angeles and I was there — although my photo of Rebecca wasn’t nearly as nice as this one.
Romijn is something of a Milk Mustache veteran — she posed for a previous ad over ten years ago. Modeling with Dolly and Charlie, though, proved more difficult. “The last time I did this campaign in 1998, we shot it in Times Square, middle of a tropical storm, during rush hour, in July, without permits…I thought that was chaotic. Well, guess what? Shooting with nine-month old twins when one of them is not havin’ it all day long…” Romijn said.
The actress, who is married to actor Jerry O’Connell, said Dolly was especially upset about her modeling debut. “I think this is one of maybe three frames where she wasn’t screaming her head off and that was way more chaotic than the one that I did in 1998. I think Jerry was probably doing cartwheels behind the photographer trying to get them to calm down.”
The event was also to kickoff the ‘Great Gallon Give,’ a campaign to help families in need by passing a virtual gallon of milk to friends on Facebook (Facebook.com/MilkMustache.) For every virtual gallon passed, $1 (up to $100,000) will go to Feeding America.
