Rachel Weisz and Colin Farrell step out on the red carpet together for the premiere of their film The Lobster during the 2015 BFI London Film Festival on Tuesday evening (October 13) at Vue West End in London, England.
On the carpet, Rachel commented on the weight Colin had to gain for the role.
“I’d never met Colin before. I met him when he had the increased weight and his face and his jawline were like doughy flesh, so he will always be [his character] David to me,” she explained.
Colin added that he tried to convince director Yorgos Lanthimos to change his character’s appearance.
“I didn’t want to put on weight because I didn’t want to work to lose it, so I was saying to Yorgos, ‘What about if he’s really thin?’ Because I did want to alter my physicality somewhat.”
Looks like Colin lost that battle but is back to looking better than ever!
FYI: Rachel is wearing an Alexander McQueen gown. Colin is wearing head-to-toe Dolce&Gabbana.
