Sophie Ellis-Bextor Goes Weightless For A Photoshoot



British pop singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor will have a rare opportunity to feel zero gravity for the purpose of an unusual photoshoot.

Her new commercial for the British snack firm Walkers will be shot onboard a zero gravity flight. Initially Sophie was excited to fly to Houston, Texas, for the shoot but after a while she admitted it wasn’t all fun and games.

She explains, “I thought it would be a bit like swimming underwater, but it’s a lot more serene and incredibly passive, so you can’t be so directional. When I was having my picture taken, they kept having to grab my foot and spin me the other way round.”

“It was a once in a lifetime thing to do. I can’t really compare it to anything I’ve done before. It felt really lovely. Quite addictive.”

Model Kate Upton was recently also privileged to do a zero gravity photoshoot for the 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
