Red carpet glamour for film festival opening night 075



By Karrie Gillett

SHOWBIZ A-listers Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller shared the red carpet with Hollywood legend Sir Sean Connery for the world premiere of The Edge of Love.
The movie – which charts the tangled love life of Welsh poet Dylan Thomas – marks the opening of the Edinburgh International Film Festival which Connery is patron of.
And the glamorous duo appeared inseparable as they stopped to chat to journalists and sign autographs for fans who had stood outside the city’s Foutainpark cineworld complex for hours.
The biopic also stars Welsh actor Matthew Rhys who said filming alongside Miller and Knightley had been “very giggly”.
Miller – wearing a black dress by Jasmine di MiloLouis Vuitton shoes and a trademark black vintage hat – admitted that her role in the movie had not been her most challenging because it had been so well written.
She said: “It was really well-directed and the environment was really conducive to creativity
“I have worked on films before where I haven’t been supported as much so no, it was not the most challenging but it was a lot of fun.”
And co-star Keira – kitted out in a cream Chanel trouser suit and black jacket topped off with Moschino shoes – said Miller was “the best looking date I could ask for.”
The 23-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean star said finally getting to see a screening of the film which was also penned by her mother was a brilliant celebration.
She said: “It’s fantastic. This was a film that everyone involved in was hugely, hugely passionate about so it’s a celebration that we got it made and it’s here and we’re all so proud of it.”
And as the young actors stopped to sign autographs, Sir Sean Connery made his way into the screening sporting his arm in a sling.
The 77-year-old was greeted by some wolf-whistling from fans and raised a thumbs-up when asked if he was okay.
The festival – now in its 62nd year – will run until June 29 and the opening night was also attended by Nip/Tuck actress Joely Richardson who appeared a natural on the red carpet.
