Noah Opens In London – the biblical epic had its UK premiere tonight and whilst the movie is set to be one of the year’s big box-office favourites it was Emma Watson who was the big talking point this evening.
The 23-year old looked perfect for the occasion as she wowed the assembled crowds in her white silk Ralph Lauren evening gown. The outfit featured a thigh-high split and she paired it with a matching pair of white heels.
Emma looked a world away from her Harry Potter days and showed that she has made the transition from child star to adult star without any of the bumps in the road that others such as Lindsay Lohan found so difficult to avoid. She shows that you can still make a big and lasting impression in a classy way.
Looking every inch the Hollywood star she appeared very much at ease on the red carpet and after posing for some solo photos also appeared later with Russell Crowe who plays the title role of Noah in the movie.
Although Emma looked as cool as a cucumber on her Ralph Lauren number she has talked recently about the pressure she feels on always having to look great for the cameras. ‘As a younger woman, that pressure got me down, but I’ve made peace with it.’
The movie has already opened in the US and has received some brilliant reviews from the critics. Emma plays Noah’s daughter in law Ila in the movie with actor Douglas Booth playing the part of her husband Shem. Noah’s wife Naameh is played by Jennifer Connelly who has some previous experience of playing Russell Crowe’s wife as she played the part of Alicia Nash in 2001’s award-winning A Beautiful Mind.
As well as Emma Watson and Russell Crowe, Sir Antony Hopkins who plays Methuselah and Ray Winstone who plays the villainous Tubal-cain joined them on the red carpet along with the movie’s director Darrren Aronofsky.
The movie will go on general release here in the UK from 4 April.
