The 47-year-old actress wore a chic black satin pantsuit by Alexander McQueen on the red carpet outside the Ziegfield Theater that showed off her svelte figure.
She was joined at the movie’s premiere by her co-stars Tom Hanks and newcomer Thomas Horn, a Teen Jeopardy champ making his acting debut in the drama.
The film, which opens Dec. 25 in limited release, centers on a young boy (Horn) who loses his father in the September 11th terrorist attacks. He embarks on a journey to uncover a mystery left behind by his dad.
On Thursday, Bullock also appeared on NBC’s Today to explain why she opted for a role that gave her only 24 minutes of screen time.
“It’s truly this amazing story of this child’s point of view of what happened in his life that was this horribly tragic event,” she said. “And to see it through his eyes is far more, I think poignant and impactful, than to see it through an adult’s eyes.”
Asked why an actress of her status would agree to a smaller part rather than a starring role, Bullock replied: “I’ve already had those moments, I think. I mean, there might be more, I don’t know, but I don’t know how many moments and opportunities like this there’ll be — with stories like this, with directors and casts like this — it’s like the rare moments in life where all the elements are there, and they all come together for some strange or bigger reason.”
“You can’t say no to that,” she added.
Extremely Loud also stars Viola Davis, Jeffrey Wright, John Goodman and Zoe Caldwell.
