Kristen Johnston Buys Homeless Man A Coat!

Awww!!! OMG that was SO nice!!

While Angelina Jolie is giving back to countries all over the world, Kristen Johnston is giving back through acts of random kindness in America.

In downtown Manhattan, she spotted a homeless man freezing his beard off (it's COLD up there), so she wanted to do something about it.

She went and bought him one of those bubble jackets to keep him warm and toasty.

And then she just handed him a nice chunk of cash too!!

Needless to say, the man was absolutely shocked and humbled to receive such generosity.

We need more people like her in the world. SO inspiring!

    Homeless guy: "all man fuck this who's this crazy white bitch putting a space suit on me"

    Wow that's cute, trying to peg these two women against each other now?. WHAT have you or your staff given to anyone in Need ever? Stop criticizing how these women choose to spend their money. At leas they are doing a lot more than your lard a$$.

    Yeah! Angelina should move to Africa, cause it's soooo bitchin and classy just like her, NOT! Good going Kristen! We have a lot of homeless and hungry people in the US.

    Surprisingly, I kind of agree with Perez. It's great to give millions across the globe but we have millions here in the U.S. who are hurting for a roof over their head, for food for jobs. Sometimes Charity should begin at home.

    Um this is awkward that is her boyfriend!

    more like took a coat out of her own closet..Least coulda got a size bigger!



  8. 8

    and um… how were the cameras there???..

    Why can't people do things anonymously? they only do shit if cameras are watching. I think she lives by me in CT because I've seen her at la bonne market and CVS a few times. She seems nice enough, but I wonder if she would've done this without anyone looking.

    I think it's very nice or her, but the coat look a little small for the poor guy!

    If you think New York is cold, don't ever come to Montreal. As I'm talking, it is -12 celcius degrees. ;)



  11. 11

    The world needs more people like this!

    Re: pollopicu – And who cares if she would or wouldn't do it behind cameras? The fact is that she did something positive and helpful with no evidence of any hidden agenda behind it. The fact is that it's actually something positive from a celebrity for a change.

    On a side note, Kristen is hilarious on the "The Exes."

    Maybe you should give away some of your ugly-assed hoodies. Then again, even the homeless have standards.



  14. 14

    Re: La Souris – Celsius Degrees is a unit of temperature change, not of temperature itself. You mean Degrees Celsius.

    The coat looks awful small and just a tad too 'fabulous' for the guy. Why didn't she just get him a tiara to match the silver space suit jacket?

    Yeah 4 her!, but you described the homeless man as humbled. HE IS HOMELESS how much more humble could he get?



  17. 17

    Re: anewlow – Apparently you don't understand. She did it because she has a fucking agenda. She is on this website because she was "caught" buying ONE GUY A coat. Big fucking whoop.

    As Kristen's manager. I sent her your article and she asked me to share this with you:

    "First of all, his name is Frank. The coat is my own, I even wore it in an episode of Ugly Betty. I didn't know someone was taking pictures, trust me I would've looked WAY cuter. And whether you help people across the globe by donating millions, or simply give a guy a coat when it's cold out, who gives a shit? It's called DO WHAT YOU CAN. I feel bad that people are so cynical that even someone helping someone out is picked apart & judged. Oh, and buy my book GUTS on March 13 (oh, come on! I had to!) Thanks Perez! Love, KJo"

    Stop it!! Kristen is a real talent because she has a real heart!!



  20. 20

    Good for her. Sweet gal.



  21. 21

    Nothing like doing something nice - WHEN THERE ARE CAMERAS AROUND!



  22. 22

    Re: pollopicu – photo op…..what else.



  23. 23

    Well it's sweet, too bad the coat is too small for the guy lol. poor guy can't even zip it up.



  24. 24

    The she gave him some cash… I'm sure a meal and room for the night would've been much more beneficial to him. If he's an addict (not saying he definitely is) then that money would be pretty detrimental.

    That is so gorgeous, he looks genuinley touched by her act of kindness.

    Well whenb she gives MILLIONS to people like AJ an BP to let me know. They gave million to the victims of Katrina and are still building homes for the homeless victims, So stuff it, She bought a guy a 15.oo jacket and gave him a 20 and this makes her a hero. PLEASE..it is laughable. Pitt has spent millions of thir own money plus raising millions more for ALL victims of Katrina. They also giv e to other countries mkore then I can say for about 99 percent of the people in here and also PEREZ the moron.,
