Greta Gerwig: Jennifer Garner gave me red carpet tips
Greta Gerwig says her "Arthur" co-star Jennifer Garner gave her some great advice when it comes to being a star.
"Jennifer Garner gave me tips on how to stand on the red carpet, which was so cool," Gerwig, 27, told OnTheRedCarpet.com.
Gerwig wore a black and white Narciso Rodriguez color block-style dress, black Christian Louboutin pumps, a black Cecelia clutch and vintage earrings by House of Lavande as she posed for pictures and talked to reporters at the recent red carpet premiere of "Arthur," which opened on Friday, April 8.
In the film, she plays a working-class girl who catches the eye of playboy Arthur Bach, portrayed by British funnyman Russell Brand, 35, However, Bach's initial love plan consists of marrying an heiress, played by 32-year-old Garner, so that he can inherit a fortune. Oscar-winning British actress Helen Mirren, 65, plays his nanny.
Gerwig said Mirren is "amazing," adding: "She's like a real role model. She's so what I want to be when I grow up, when I'm 60. I wanted to talk to her about life and just how she views it."
Gerwig, a California native who lives in New York, began her on-screen acting career in 2006 and appeared alongside Ben Stiller in the 2010 movie "Greenberg." She also starred in the romantic comedy "No Strings Attached" earlier this year with Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher.
