Globetrotting James Nesbitt helps Teri present animated flick Down Under Charming Irish star James Nesbitt took a break from his latest film project to support Teri Hatcher as she unveiled her new animated flick in Australia.

The Desperate Housewife looked delighted to have his support at Coraline, a dark fantasy animation about a young girl who walks through a secret door to discover an alternative, seemingly better version of her life.

Taking advantage of being in Melbourne, where he's filming Love And Mortar, a dramatic love story about a woman struggling with her son’s illness and her husband’s infidelity, the Jekyll actor popped along to the Sydney Film Festival to check out the new offering.

In his new movie James plays an Irish sailor whose chance encounter with the mother of the sick boy turns her life upside down.

The actor admits he's been considering work offers from Hollywood and beyond because those from the UK's cash-strapped industry have dried up – even though he'd miss his daughters Peggy and Mary. 

That's something Teri could probably relate to as she's made a point of taking along her 11-year-old daughter Emerson on this trip Down Under. The pair have already climbed Sydney Harbour Bridge, and there are plans for snorkelling, jet skiing and snow skiing to follow.
