Moviegoers were in for a treat when a trio of Hollywood hunks rolled up on the seventh day of the Toronto film festival. The arrival of Liam Neeson and Pierce Brosnan at the extravaganza sent their female admirers into a fever pitch of excitement.
The two Irish sons - who were promoting revenge drama Seraphim Falls - clasped each other in an enthusiastic greeting before facing their fans. This epic tale takes place against the backdrop of the American Civil War, with the stars portraying deadly enemies. But with the atmosphere full of bonhomie it was clear the actors thoroughly enjoyed the experience of sharing the screen.
Meanwhile across town Jude Law was busy publicising his ensemble piece Breaking And Entering with co-star Robin Wright Penn. The swoony Englishman is no stranger to Toronto, as this summer he dropped in to visit on-off love Sienna Miller when she was shooting a flick there.
As well as lapping up the admiration of the city's ladies, Jude was also basking in the plaudits of director Anthony Minghella. Breaking And Entering is their third collaboration - they also made Cold Mountain and The Talented Mr Ripley together - and the filmmaker promises it won't be their last.
"Sydney Pollack, who I follow as best I can around the filmmaking world, worked seven times with Robert Redford and that was an amazing collaboration," he commented. "I want to get to eight at least with Jude."
