Reese attended the London premiere of Home Again earlier this evening, and she looked very glamorous in a dramatic black dress by Stella McCartney (accessorizing with Louboutin shoes and Cartier jewellry). On the red carpet Reese talked to reporters about what drew her to the film and what she enjoyed about working with a female storyteller; she was also congratulated on the Big Little Lies wins at the Emmys. We have the first HQ photos in our Gallery for you:
“It’s great to have a female director and a female producer (Nancy Meyers); they really see romance in a different kind of way. It’s definitely through their lens that you see a romance between an older woman and a younger man… my character having a romance with a 27-year-old man, I’m not sure that would have occurred to a guy. It’s about updating the romantic comedy, and I think audiences are ready for something new and a little more modern. It’s a very modern concept and I think that people are going through that more and more. It’s nice to see a reality reflected on film. I think people are ready for the romantic comedy that speaks a little more truth. I was really excited to work with a female director, it’s really important that we have more women behind the camera and I think they did a great job.”
Hallie Meyers-Shyer: “Being a woman guides a lot of your decisions, from wardrobe choices to the dialogue… It’s a woman’s story and in my opinion it’s very much made by women. People are talking more about (women in film) and I think we will see a change – it’s more conversation than action, but if audiences come out and see the films then more women’s stories will be told. [Reese took a] “leap of faith” [in her film]. She’s naturally the right age, she’s naturally funny, she’s naturally a wonderful actress, she’s been divorced… it resonates with her, she made it all real.”
