INTRO: British director Matthew Vaughn, Sienna Miller and Michelle Pfeiffer walk the red carpet for the European premiere of "Stardust".

STORY: Starring Robert DeNiro(
羅伯特德尼羅), Michelle Pfeiffer(米歇爾菲佛), Claire Danes(克萊兒丹妮絲), Sienna Miller(西耶娜米勒), Charlie Cox(查理考克斯), Ricky Gervais(瑞奇熱爾維), and Peter O'Toole(彼得奧圖爾), the fantasy epic is based on Neil Gaiman's novel of the same name and takes place in a countryside town bordering on a magical land where a young man makes a promise to his beloved that he will retrieve a fallen star by venturing into the magical realm.

"I think when you have children, you start realising that there is probably more to life than gangsters and doing edgy films, and I wanted to make a film that I could enjoy with my kids," Vaughn told Reuters."I have taken my kids to see so many bad movies that after a while I have been really resentful of Hollywood and I thought I was going to do my own version of a family film that every one can enjoy and not be bored.

Vaughn casts Michelle Pfeiffer as a murderous old witch, Lamia, hell-bent on regaining her former beauty by tracking down a falling star which turns out to be an ethereal woman called Yvain who has the power of eternal life, played by Claire Danes. To achieve the look of Lamia, Pfeiffer had to endure hours in the makeup chair to transform the Hollywood beauty into a dishevelled old crone. 

"Initially it took so time getting used to. I think the most disturbing phase was the stage when I was half aged and half normal, that was pretty creepy," she said. The 49-year-old actress is enjoying somewhat of a revival of her onscreen career having already appeared in the film "Hairspray" early in the year.

Co-star Sienna Miller who almost missed the London premiere, was hoping garner a few helpful beauty hints form Pfeiffer. "She looks younger than me and I am twenty five," Miller said. "She is exquisite. I haven't met her, so I am looking forwards to
meeting her. But I think she also gets more and more beautiful as she gets older. I don't know how she does it., but I am going to have some quiet words. Believe me."

Other stars to attend the premiere included British comic Ricky Gervais who plays Ferdy the Fence, an opportunistic trader, Rupert Everett, Dexter Fletcher, Mark Strong, members o the Boy Band Take That and the film's young lead British actor Charlie Cox. Claire Danes and Robert De Niro were not in London to attend the premiere.

Stardust opens nationwide in the UK on October 19. The film will be hoping to fare better in Europe after receiving mixed reviews in America.
