Red hot Jessica Biel goes semi-sheer at 'A-Team' unveiling as cast defend film

With no female co-star to share the limelight, Jessica Biel didn't need to fight for attention at the London premiere of The A-Team.

But that didn't stop Justin Timberlake's gorgeous girlfriend from pulling out all the stops.

Jessica was stunning in a dramatic semi-sheer, red Giambattista Valli gown that left little to the imagination. And she confessed to one interviewer that it had taken her an impressive two hours to get ready for the big night out.

It was the latest in a line of world wide launches for the cast of the £70 million remake. Jessica and Sharlto Copley – aka Murdock - Bradley Cooper, who plays Face, Liam Neeson - Hannibal - and Quinton Jackson - BA Baracus – have so far rolled into Paris, Madrid, Los Angeles and Mexico City, to name just a few.

And going everywhere with them is the gang's iconic GMC van.

The cast have also spoken out in defense of the movie, after Mr T – the actor who played BA Baracus in the original Eighties TV series – said it was "too graphic".

He added: "When we did it, no one got hurt and it was all played for fun and family entertainment. These seem to be elements nobody is interested in anymore."

But Liam Neeson said: "It's big shoes to fill. We pay homage to all of them and we tip our hat to certain elements in the show. But after that we made our own movie, and hopefully it's entertaining."

For her part Jessica said she hoped her female character brought the show up to date.

"The world is different now. Women can do anything and be anything and are as smart as anybody else," the 28-year-old said.

She brought Girl Power to what turned out to be a very male-dominated premiere. Guests included Katie Price's husband Alex Reid, X Factor finalist Olly Murs and boxing star Chris Eubank.
