One of the UK’s biggest charities came stateside on Thursday night, marking the first ever Red Nose Day USA!
The epic charity event really brought the star power with a three hour live televised special on NBC with funny sketches and great performances!
One of the highlights of the night was a Hollywood Secrets sketch (above) featuring Julia Roberts & Hugh Grant. Tons of a-list actors share their memories of working with their fellow glitteratti, but they expose one of the their DEEPEST secrets in the process — their real voices!

Since host Seth Meyers explained that “this is an American show now,” NBC still wanted to be nice to it’s U.K. stars and make them feel useful, so they all lent a hand backstage! Helen Mirren serves tea, Benedict Cumberbatch writes the cue cards, and plenty more award winning actors do grunt work!
