Chris, who married journalist Dawn Porter in August, attended the BFI premiere of the film with his wife, and said that he didn't mind being the only man in a a film full of women.

He said: "Four beautiful women is my go-to place. I grew up with a house full of women so I felt very comfortable."

"They're very fun and very giving. There was no ego on this film, which was nice."
