Promoting her upcoming movie overseas, Jessica Alba attended the “Machete” premiere during the 67th Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy on Wednesday night (September 1).
Held at the Sala Grande Palazzo Del Cinema, the “Sin City” star dazzled as she joined director Robert Rodriguez and co-star Danny Trejo on the red carpet.
Due out in theaters on September 3, Jess recently told of the film, “It’s exciting, for us as artists. Usually, we’re just entertaining and, most of the time, everything is just pure, commercial entertainment.”
She adds, “Especially in Hollywood, there isn’t a whole lot of emphasis on much else. Film is used, in other places in the world, for political messages, and it’s an art, in all different forms. Some people don’t have a voice, and their government keeps them from having a voice. Knowing that we can participate in something that is socially and politically relevant, even in one of the biggest pop culture makers of the world, Hollywood, that’s awesome.”
Yesterday Alba was spotted at a photo call for the new film. The “Awake” actress joined costar Danny Trejo and director Robert Rodriguez at the Palazzo del Casino as part of the 67th Venice International Film Festival.
On Tuesday she attended the Uomo Vogue dinner party in celebration of Quentin Tarantino’s career accomplishments.
Also in the house for the snazzy affair were Naomi Campbell, Stephen Dorff, Beatrice Bulgari, and Danny Elfman.
