The newspaper editor-turned-TV personality strutted his stuff down the runway of a Haiti fashion benefit last month (Feb10) alongside Naomi Campbell, who organised the bash to aid victims of the country's devastating earthquake in January (10).
And after Morgan stepped off the catwalk to make way for Dame Shirley Bassey, he felt something hit his leg - and found an hysterical Moss on the floor behind him.
He writes in Britain's Live magazine, "I suddenly felt a large thudding pain in my leg. 'Ouch!' I yelled, in genuine agony, 'What the hell...?'
"I turned to see Kate Moss scrunched up into a cackling ball of laughter, looking like something straight out of The Witches of Eastwick. She'd just run up and kicked me as hard as she could in the upper calf."
The Oscar-winning moviemaker, whose films include Happy Feet, Witches of Eastwick and Mad Max, has been named a recipient of the prestigious Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres, one of the country's highest accolades.
The award will be presented to Miller at a French Film Festival event in Sydney, Australia on Tuesday.
French Consulate official Jean-Jacques Garnier says, "George Miller is a well-known director in France... (The award is in recognition of) his life achievement as (a) director and what he gave to cinema in Australia and around the world."
Chris Columbus director of the first two Harry Potter flicks has gone Greek trading wizards and witches for the gods and goddesses of Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief based on the popular series of adventure novels by Rick Riordan.
Aside from his Jonas-worthy looks troubled teen Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman turning in a solid audition for the Peter Parker gig) seemingly has little else going for him: At school he’s shunned by his peers and stymied by dyslexia; at home he’s tormented by a sullen beer-swilling step-dad. The only solace from his dreary existence is found at the bottom of a swimming pool where he sits motionless for several minutes at a time staring blankly ahead.
What at first seems like textbook para-suicidal behavior is later revealed to be the happy byproduct of a rather stellar gene pool. Percy’s long-lost babydaddy we discover is none other than Poseidon the mighty Greek god of the sea (played funnily enough by Kevin McKidd of HBO's Rome) who descended from the heavens years ago and knocked up Percy’s mom (the gods it seems harbor major mortal fetishes) only to abruptly flee seven months after his birth. Among the traits he inherited from his deadbeat dad is the ability to survive underwater without oxygen for interminable amounts of time. So you see Percy isn’t an ordinary high school loser after all; he’s a freaking demigod yo.
It’s essentially the Harry Potter fantasy — the sudden discovery that one possesses talents far beyond those of typical mortals allowing one to permanently escape a life of endless tedium and mediocrity — straight from the director Columbus who helped kickstart the blockbuster franchise.
But ye gods — few movies in recent memory stumble out of the gate as badly as The Lightning Thief. Clearly intended to serve as the first installment of a franchise the film is nigh unwatchable for its first 30-odd minutes as Columbus labors awkwardly to establish the many intricacies and rules of the universe in which Lerman’s unlikely hero resides. Considering his resume you’d think Columbus might have learned a thing or two about laying out a backstory without resorting to the kind of forced exposition and clunky foreshadowing found in this film.
When the bulk of the expository gruntwork is finished The Lightning Thief does eventually hit a kind of narrative stride as Percy and his pals criss-cross the country facing various Hellenic horrors but it never engages on any level beyond the superficial. As in the Potter films I suspect the real emotional territory will be mined in the follow-ups — if there are any.

TV bosses at U.S. network ABC have refused to order additional episodes of Price's Witches of Eastwick spin-off, Eastwick, and now it seems she's all out of love as well.
Life & Style magazine reports the actress ended the romance with Radnor because she's too much fun for him.
A source says, "They have different lifestyles. He’s a bit of a homebody, while she likes to go out and have fun."
The two thirty-somethings met on the set of his hit comedy How I Met Your Mother in 2007, when Price landed a guest spot. They began dating last year.

Ratings dipped after the show, starring Rebecca Romijn, debuted in September (09) and even a guest slot from the actress' husband, Jerry O'Connell failed to revive interest.
And now the series in on the verge of being cancelled.
The actor has signed on to guest star in his wife's spooky new Witches of Eastwick TV spin-off, Eastwick - but he won't be romancing her on the show.
Instead, he'll be hooking up with family friend and Romijn's co-star Jaime Ray Newman.
He says, "There's a kissing scene, but there is no jealousy. They're very good friends. There will be no weirdness."
"We've cast three spells. One to get the show picked up, one to get some hair and make-up people that we wanted and one to get a time-slot - and they all came through." Model-turned-actress REBECCA ROMIJN hopes to bewitch U.S. viewers with her upcoming WITCHES OF EASTWICK TV spin-off EASTWICK.
Jack Huston has been added to the cast of the second Twilight sequel, Eclipse, where he'll play creepy character Royce King.
Huston, who is the grandson of movie legend John Huston, has also landed a role in upcoming Witches of Eastwick TV spin-off Eastwick.
He's not the only member of Hollywood royalty to join the Twilight cast for Eclipse - director Ron Howard's daughter Bryce Dallas Howard will replace outgoing vampire vixen Rachelle Lefevre in the film.
