Zeta-Jones walked down the red carpet in a sparkling red mini-dress, along with her co-star, Aaron Eckhart, for the film’s New York premiere Wednesday night at the Ziegfeld Theater.
The actress plays Kate, a master chef who thinks she has her life in order, until she is joined by a sous-chef, Nick (Aaron Eckhart), who tries to take over her kitchen. At the same time, she faces the challenge of raising her young niece Zoe (Abigail Breslin) who comes to live with her after her character’s sister dies.
High-spirited and freewheeling, Nick couldn’t be more different from Kate.
To prepare for the role, Academy Award winner Zeta-Jones and Golden Globe nominee Eckhart worked with top chefs in a restaurant.
Zeta-Jones says the two messages of the film, food and love, go hand-in-hand.
“When you think when you go for your first date you go for dinner or there is nothing better than a man cooking you dinner, especially if he has no clothes on,” she told CBS Newspath’s Michele Jarchin.
Eckhart said all the knives and fire on the set made the kitchen a dangerous place to film.
“I cut myself several times … that comes with the territory. The knives were sharp. I was burnt. I think I burnt Catherine. I’m sure Catherine stabbed me a few times. It is a dangerous environment especially when you are trying to cut vegetables and all that and not look at the food at the same time,” he said.
The movie opens nationwide, Friday, 부천 마사지 July 27.
