Ben Barnes and Jessica Biel at 'Easy Virtue' Premiere at Rome Film Festival

A recent online survey named Jessica Biel as one of the worst red carpet autograph signers on the scene right now and indeed, true to form, she swished briskly down the red carpet last night at the premiere of Easy Virtue in Rome and although she did smile and wave briefly at the handful of waiting fans, her attention was focused firmly on journalists and official photographers and anybody after an autograph was left disappointed. Ben Barnes aka Prince Caspian, on the other hand, her charming co-star in the movie, stopped to chat to fans and signed numerous autographs along the red carpet route. They were both joined by the director, Stephen Elliott (of The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert fame) for the red carpet photo call before entering Sala Santa Cecilia for the premiere. The film itself, an adaptation of Noel Coward's roaring twenties play of the same name, was met with an extremely warm reception. Diva or not, Biel gives an excellent performance in this sparkling comedy of manners, as the sexy American racing driver who marries into an upper class English family and finds herself at odds with the hypocrisy and stuffiness of the household and in particular, with her new mother-in-law played by a wonderfully droll Kristin Scott Thomas.
