In her floor-sweeping gown actress Gillian Anderson showed off her growing baby bump on the red carpet in Leicester Square tonight. The 40-year-old, who is expecting her third child, was at the world premiere of How To Lose Friends And Alienate People, in which she appears. Anderson, once voted the world's sexiest woman, dazzled in a black and white gown and bolero jacket.
The film is an adaptation of freelance writer Toby Young's memoir about his disastrous time as a contributer to Vanity Fair, New York. 'A true story based on a real idiot,' runs the publicity blurb for the film, which stars Simon Pegg as the bungling anti-hero, Kirsten Dunst as Caroline and Jeff Bridges as Graydon Carter, Vanity Fair's long suffering editor.
However although he may have lost a lot of friends in the past, tonight Young couldn't have been more popular.
The stars turned out in force to walk the red carpet in Leicester Square, and Young cosied up to them for photos.
Among them were actress Margo Stilley, ex-Blue Peter presenter Konnie Huq, Narnia actress Anna Poppywell, Radio 1 DJ Edith Bowman and former Hollyoaks actress Hannah Waddingham.
