Gwyneth Paltrow & Matt Damon Premiere "Contagion" in Venice
With the annual Venice Film Festival in full swing, the cast of "Contagion" hit the red carpet for their film's premiere at Palazzo de Cinema on Saturday night (September 3).
Joining in on the celebration were lovely actress Gwyneth Paltrow, as well as newly-bald actor Matt Damon (who was joined by wife Luciana Barroso), as well as fellow co-star Laurence Fishburne.
For the sci-fi thriller, Damon teamed back up with director Steven Soderbergh - who also directed him in the "Ocean's Eleven" movies starting back in 2001.
"Steven sent me the script with a note that said, 'Read this and then go wash your hands,'" said Damon, with a laugh. "After seeing this movie in a theater filled with strangers, I'm sure that thought will definitely cross peoples' minds."
As for "Contagion," the picture - which hits theaters on September 9th - also stars Jude Law and Kate Winslet while being an "action-thriller centered on the threat posed by a deadly disease and an international team of doctors contracted by the CDC to deal with the outbreak."
Taking care of media duties, Gwyneth Paltrow was spotted at the Venice Film Festival photo call for her new movie "Contagion" today (September 3).
Joined by costars Matt Damon and Laurence Fishburne , the "Country Strong" actress showed off her leggy form in a belted bright orange mini dress and sparkling peeptoe pumps.
During a recent interview with "Access Hollywood," Matt talked about what it was like to reunite with Gwyneth following their 1999 film, "The Talented Mr. Ripley."
"I was reminded of just how amazing she is, she's a really special actress. More so than anybody I've ever worked with, she's got an ability to turn it on and off. Like she can just be talking about anything and then when they say, 'Rolling,' it's like she snaps, she just locks in," Damon told.
He later added, "I've worked with a lot of great actors and one thing that happens for me is that a great actor is so good that they pull me right in... that's how I feel when I do a scene with her, I'm instantly brought in because she takes me there."
