Soul diva Alicia Keys proved that her vocal talents aren’t her only stunning feature when she took to the red carpet in Los Angeles on Thursday. The 24-year-old made light work of stealing the show when she turned out for a movie premiere dressed in a figure-hugging, off-the-shoulder creation.
The New York native, who recently stormed the charts with her Unplugged album, was among the big names who turned out to support John Voight’s new basketball flick Glory Road. And it seems likely she will be turning heads at another glitzy screening before too long, as the critically-acclaimed performer is set to make her big screen debut.
Alicia plays the female lead in the action comedy Smokin’ Aces, which also features Hollywood heart-throbs Ben Affleck and Andy Garcia. Co-star Ryan Reynolds confessed to having some doubts about working with the pretty songstress, but he now reckons she has what it takes to become a major movie star.
“Going in you’re thinking ‘Oh god, this is going to be tough. Am I going to have to slow down so they can keep up’,” he explained. “But that wasn’t the case at all. I’m surprised she hasn’t done a movie before because she’s so natural. She’s going to blow everybody away.”
