Thanks so much to Hannah for the news and Doormat for the images, Gwen will be appearing in an upcoming HBO documentary on AIDS premiering on May 24. Titled The Lazarus Effect, she teamed up with RED (whom she has worked with in the past), we’re not sure how extensive her role will be in the film just quite yet, but she looks amazing. We are in love with the whole orange theme with her outfit. The trailer is now available online, which we added below, and we will have more information on the documentary as it becomes available.
Beat Week — Gwen Stefani has joined forces with (RED) to lend her voice to the cause of spreading the word about an upcoming HBO film entitled The Lazarus Effect, which documents an inexpensive AIDS treatment which can bring those dying of the disease back to a healthy state within forty days of treatment. Also signed on to help spread the word about the film are Penelope Cruz, Orlando Bloom, Iman, Hugh Jackman, and Don Cheadle. The Lazarus Effect, which will debut on May 24th on HBO, is directed by Lance Bangs and executive produced by Spike Jonze.
(RED) is a charitable effort spearheaded by U2â€™s Bono and others aimed at encouraging corporations to offer special red versions of their existing products with a portion of the sales going to charitable causes.
Gwen Stefani rose to fame as lead singer for No Doubt and has also since launched a successful solo career. Sheâ€™s married to Gavin Rossdale from Bush, which we mention because we interviewed him at the start of his solo career. Gwen Stefani is expected to release a new album with No Doubt in 2010.

JoinRED — Iman, Penelope Cruz, Bono, Hugh Jackman, Gwen Stefani and many more (RED) friends are lending their voice to tell the world about The Lazarus Effect: the transformation that can take place when someone living with HIV has access to 2 antiretroviral pills that cost as little as 40 cents a day. They can live a full life with HIV instead of dying from AIDS.
“The Lazarus Effect” film premieres on HBO at 9pm ET/ 8pm CT, YouTube and Channel 4 (UK) on May 24th.
