TIFF PHOTO GALLERY: Robert De Niro, Clive Owen and Jason Statham at the Killer Elite red carpet
Compared to Friday night’s Brangelina-induced hysteria, yesterday afternoon’s red carpet presentation of Killer Elite was relatively subdued—especially considering the trifecta of badasses in attendance. Old-school badass Robert De Niro has clearly done this way too many times: he couldn’t muster the kind of enthusiasm that other red carpet stars like Brad Pitt or George Clooney still manage to put out there. He was quiet and courteous—but nothing more. Jason Statham, on the other hand, was all winning smiles and brash cockney banter, although he refused to take off his sunglasses (but we still managed to catch him without them). Clive Owen looked rather Bond-ish (yes, we know, he hasn’t played that role—yet). He was followed by the lady of the hour, statuesque Yvonne Strahovski, who appeared to relish being the only female in a sea of manly men.
