Fiddy to Julia -- "I'll Pimp Your Ride"

9/21/2006 6:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Showbiz, not unlike politics, makes strange bedfellows, like actress Julia Stiles and rap mogul 50 Cent -- at least if you're talking about the bed of a pimped-out pick-up truck with spinning rims.

At a storytelling salon presented last night by Elle magazine, Cole-Haan, and The Moth, Stiles told the simultaneously bizarre and hilarious story of being asked by Fiddy to appear on an upcoming "Pimp My Ride"-esque show he is producing for SPEED Channel. Prompted by a frantic phone call from her agent while she was on holiday, Stiles says she was asked to call the rapper -- and that she originally had pulse-quickening visions of Fiddy wanting her "to play a renegade white female rapper who lives in Detroit who is heroic...and I could actually rap in the movie!"

As it turns out, when she finally got through (and having navigated the question of how to address 50 Cent -- "Fiddy? Curtis? Boss?"), Fiddy asked her to appear on a TV show -- and offered her a pick-up truck with every blinged-out accoutrement imaginable as an enticement. The conscience-stricken Stiles, however, wanted a different kind of modification -- a hybrid engine, or at least one that used bio-diesel fuel, in her car. And, after getting this particular request, Mr. Cent never called back.

Barneys creative director Simon Doonan brought the house down with a tale involving Oscar winner Shelley Winters, the National Enquirer, and aerobics classes, and "Project Runway's" Tim Gunn described the ordeal of wearing his brother-in-law's suits for a funeral; Mormon comedienne Elna Baker and columnist E. Jean Carroll also shared their own tales of fashion wow and woe.

Why is it whenever a black and white person is in the same story, it always turn to race. You people need to stick with the subject of the matter. Get a life or get left back.
