"Fleabag" creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge plans to auction off the outfit she wore to Sunday's Golden Globes for charity, with the proceeds benefiting Australian firefighters.

Variety reported that Waller-Bridge told reporters backstage that she got the idea from her "Fleabag" co-workers.

“It’s a beautiful idea from the team, so I’m really excited to be a part of that,” she said.


Waller-Bridge won the Golden Globe for outstanding actress in a TV series, comedy or musical while also taking home an award for the show itself on Sunday after previously winning an Emmy for it last year.

Dramatic photos and videos of wildfires in Australia have gone viral on social media in recent days as hundreds of firefighters battle devastating blazes on the country's eastern coast.

Comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres thanked firefighters during her Sunday remarks while accepting the Carol Burnett Award, saying, “Australia, I love you. My heart goes out to everyone suffering in Australia, all the animals that we’ve lost.”
