'Interstellar' Premiere: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway & Jessica Chastain Turn Out
The Interstellar premiere, attended by stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain, was held at the TCL Chinese Theater in Los Angeles Sunday evening.
In Interstellar, McConaughey’s character Cooper leads an expedition to space with a group of similarly brave men and women to save the world when Earth becomes no longer habitable by the human race. McConaughey, dressed in a dark suit with burgundy accents, brought his wife Camila Alves along with him to the star-studded premiere of the blockbuster film directed by Christoper Nolan.
Chastain, who plays McConaughey's daughter Murphy in Interstellar, wore a long-sleeved, black backless Givenchy Couture gown to the premiere that featured a high slit, which revealed lace lining. When asked on the red carpet if she’d consider taking a trip into outer space, Chastain demurred. "I loved Princess Leia as a kid," she told the New York Times. "I loved that she was so badass and took control. But I have no interest in being one of those people on the spaceships they’re advertising that go to the moon. No thank you. I’ll be one of those people that stays on Earth, eating corn."
Hathaway, who was spotted embracing Chastain on the red carpet, wowed in a dark blue satin gown by Richard Nicoll and accessorized with James Banks Designs jewelry. The actress plays space traveler Amelia in the movie, and while she didn’t weigh in on her feelings about space travel, did tell audiences what to expect when sitting down to watch Interstellar: to "have their minds bent and their hearts opened."
Interstellar opens in select theaters Nov. 5 and nationwide Nov. 7.
