V for Vendetta Premiere
Dressed in Lanvin, Portman hugged Susan Sarandon, her co-star in 1999′s Anywhere But Here, on the red carpet and gamely answered questions about the locks she shaved off to play Evey in Vendetta, which opens Friday. In the film, her character joins forces with terrorist V and goes about toppling a corrupt totalitarian British regime. Her shorn tresses may be in a bag, the actress says, but she’s not sure. "I have it somewhere, but I actually don’t know where it is," she adds, laughing. "I should find it. It’s dangerous."
New York, NY :: Last night’s V for Vendetta premiere was held at Jazz at Lincoln Center. And yes, above is a heavily bearded Hugo Weaving, best-known as the unctuous Agent Smith in The Matrix movies, hugging Natalie Portman. V for Vendetta opens in theaters and IMAX nationwide this Friday, March 17. More pictures in the gallery!
