Thandie Newton attended the royal premiere of her scriptwriter husband's movie The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel on Tuesday evening, and the stunning actress happily shared a glimpse of her beauty regime ahead of the red carpet with her fans. The-mum-of-three posted a candid snap showing herself posing make-up free with a moustache-shaped smothering of hair removal cream over her top lip.
The 42-year-old captioned the shot: "Dealing with the tash in readiness for the Royal Premiere tonight! Go Jolen!"
Naturally the Mission Impossible II actress shared an "after" photograph as well, showing off the results of her preparations. Another selfie revealed her and dashing hubby Oliver Parker looking red carpet-ready. "On our way to Premiere #Marigold2 @Chanel up to the eyeballs and hubster smokin hot in @Dior," wrote Thandie with a heart-shaped emoji.
The actress, who starred in the Oscar-winning film Crash, opted for a strapless monochrome gown that showed off her amazing figure – just last year she welcomed her third child, a little boy the couple named Booker.
She wore her dark locks styled into a chic side parting and a string of pearls around her neck for the glitzy evening. Her husband, who wrote the script of The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, was dashing in a smart black tuxedo and dapper bow tie.
The premiere – which took place in London's West End – was also attended by Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall, as well as members of the film's star-studded cast including Dame Judi Dench and Celia Imrie.
This is the second premiere in a month for Thandie, who attended her own premiere recently for her role in the American version of The Slap.
There she flaunted her impressive figure at the launch of new US mini-series last week, turning countless heads as she navigated the red carpet at Manhattan's New Museum.
