Leslie Mann, Cameron Diaz, Kate Upton Stun on ‘The Other Woman’ Red CarpetBy: Shana Norris - April 23, 2014
Leslie Mann, Cameron Diaz, and Kate Upton wore distinctly different yet equally stunning gowns to the Los Angeles premiere of The Other Woman Monday night.
The premiere for the romantic comedy, which hits theaters Friday, was held at the historical Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Mann was said to have “stole the show” in a two-piece floor-length bright fuchsia and orange Monique Lhuillier ensemble and matching Oscar Tiye strappy sandal heels.
Diaz chose basic black in the form of a short, strapless Stella McCartney gown with a plunging neckline. She added interest with a pair of Manolo Blahnik beaded ankle wrap heels.
Former Sports Illustrated model Upton went with short and strapless too. Her gray Dolce & Gabbana minidress featured silvery flower appliques that matched her shiny silver Giuseppe Zanotti pumps.
In The Other Woman the three strike up a comical and rather unlikely friendship after discovering they’re all sleeping with the same man. They end up conspiring against the unsuspecting philanderer who is played by Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
“It’s a story about female friendship. Three women become friends and don’t fight over a lying, cheating man. They realize it’s not worth it. Instead, they come to each other’s rescue and help one another through heartbreak,” Diaz said of the film.
The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) originally gave The Other Woman an R rating for nudity but downgraded to PG-13 after a ratings appeal.
“I respect what the MPAA stands for,” Diaz, who attended the hearing, said. “We need guidelines, and I appreciate that. But I thought, in this instance, it wasn’t the right ruling for our film.”
Mann’s husband Judd Apatow attended the premiere along with their daughters Maude, 15, and Iris, 11.
A writer and producer known for his work on films such as Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin and the hit HBO series Girls, Apatow commented on the ratings appeal and American attitudes toward nudity in movies:
“It’s interesting because there is more violence than sex scenes in PG-13 movies released here, yet overseas, there is not [as much] tolerance for violence as there is with nudity.”
An after party was held at the W Hotel in Westwood.
