The Stars Of ’12 Years Slave’ Get Glam For LA Screening, Get Coy About Their Celebrity Crushes
The stars hit the red carpet last night for a screening of the incredible film at the Directors Guild of America.
Everyone was ecstatic on the red carpet and happy to talk about why they decided to work on the film.
Steve McQueen. Actress Kelsey Scott, who plays Anne Northup, told me, “What attracted me to the project was Steve McQueen. I was a fan of his work and there was an opportunity to work with him.” Actress Ashley Dyke had a similar answer, “Reading the script and knowing that Steve McQueen was doing it is what I was like, “I’m in, I’m in.”
So once we had all that squared away, I obviously needed to know their celebrity crushes, right? 10-year-old Storm Reid was happy to share hers. Justin Bieber. She even got to meet him. “He called me a sweetheart,” she told me with a very excited look in her eyes. Still, meeting the Biebs wasn’t as cool as being in 12 Years A Slave.
Michael Fassbender as hers. Kelsey did say that she’d let me know if she ever goes on a date with any of them. So there’s that!
Launch the gallery to check out all the photos from the red carpet last night. Also, Chiwetel Ejiofor is even more handsome in person. Remember to check out 12 Years A Slave when it hits theaters on October 18.
