It’s Friday, which means that it’s the perfect time to make a trip to the mega-plex and indulge in some much needed cine-magic, and luckily for all of us, Dree Hemingway has just the flick!
After opening the indie flick Starlet— in which she has a starring role—to glowing reviews at the SXSW film festival last March, the model-turned-actress will finally see her face on the big screen as the film hits theaters nation wide today! An exciting day no doubt for the Cali-cool model, as this is her first major film role and a bit of a daunting one at that! Set in the San Fernando Valley in California, Dree plays a 21-year-old porn star who spends her days aimlessly with her misguided roommates and indulging in some illegal recreational activities. It’s when Dree’s character Jane develops an unlikely friendship with an 85-year-old woman named Sadie, that the movie takes a dramatic turn, giving Dree the opportunity to show off her impressive acting chops. Rather than just relying on her camera-ready looks, Dree pushed herself with this role, even seeking the help of actual adult film stars to coach her through a very intense sex scene, which she admits, is definitely not her thing.
“I feel very awkward trying to watch it,” Dree told WWD at the film’s New York City screening held at The Lambs Club last week.
Whether she’s modeling or acting, one thing is for sure, the camera just can’t get enough of Dree, and neither can we. Watch the Starlet trailer below and get ready to make some room in your weekend plans for Dree’s provocative new flick now in a theater near you!
