Wanna know the best thing about the new movie adaptation of Romeo and Juliet? Everyone is really, really attractive.
Just look at Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth–this version’s Juliet and Romeo. The duo looked super beautiful last night on the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere. Hailee was gorgeous in a Prabal Gurung dress, and Douglas was super sexy in his suit. Too bad he wasn’t scantily clad and posing on a chair.
But the attractiveness didn’t stop with Hailee and Douglas. I mean, hello Ed Westwick!
The former Gossip Girl star, who plays Tybalt in the movie, brought his smolder as his date. I mean, I would have been wiling to join him, but his smolder is pretty sessy. Also, hi Taylor Swift. Loving your dress. Taylor sings a song for the new R&J, and she and Hailee looked like BFFs on the red carpet.
Alright guys, I have to say it, as much as I love Shakespeare, I hate Romeo & Juliet. Everything about the play drives me mad, especially how silly Romeo and Juliet are. I saw the Broadway version last week–AND MET ORLANDO BLOOM–and all through the play I was thinking of ways that both Romeo and Juliet could have survived and not been dumb.
Still, I’m gonna go see this version. If only for Mercutio. Launch the gallery to check out all the photos from the red carpet. Do you guys find R&J as infuriating as I do? Sound off in the comments!
