Ed Westwick and Kodi Smit-McPhee both opted for plum suits at the premiere of Romeo & Juliet in Hollywood on Tuesday night.
The two play Tybalt and Benvolio, respectively, in the newest adaptation of the classic tale. Romeo and Juliet is revitalized on screen by writer Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey) and director Carlos Carlei (The Flight of the Innocent). An ageless story from the world’s most renowned author is reimagined for the 21st Century. This adaptation is told in the lush traditional setting it was written, but gives a new generation the chance to fall in love with the enduring legend. With an all-star cast including Hailee Steinfeld, Douglas Booth, Paul Giamatti and Stellan Skarsgard, it affords those unfamiliar with the tale the chance to put faces to the two names they’ve undoubtedly heard innumerable times: Romeo and Juliet. Every generation deserves to discover this lasting love.
We had the chance to chat with both Ed and Kodi at the premiere about rocking long hair, training for the film and more. Watch the full interviews below.
