Colin Farrell vs Wes Bentley at the ‘Mr. Banks’ premiere: who would you rather?


I’m just going to save everybody some time and say that I’d probably do every single person in these photos. The LA premiere of Saving Mr. Banks wasn’t the most attention-grabbing event of the week, but these photos are like a warm blankie on a cold winter day. Emma Thompson looked fabulous, and it looks like she’s really tight with Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson (Rita and Emma looked super-excited to see each other). Plus, Emma looks fabulous and it’s just great to see her doing so much promotional work.

Colin Farrell posed with a little girl who I think played his daughter in the film. Colin also posed with his friend Wes Bentley, who is not in the film but probably showed up just to support Colin. Wes’s lumberjack hotness makes Colin’s fug haircut look better, right? Right.

And to make things even more awesome, the original stars of Mary Poppins came to the premiere! Both Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews were there! How awesome is that? Wouldn’t you just like to spend a few hours listening to Julie and Emma talk? I would. Also: Julie’s velvet suit is amazing!!!

PS… I’m also including photos of Paul Giamatti, BJ Novak and Jason Schwartzman.

    I hate Colin’s hair and pirate loops.

    Wes Bentley!!!! He looks awesome – great actor – he needs to be way more famous.

  3. jinni says:

    Wes Bentley. I never got the hype about Colin’s looks. I bet it’s really just the accent people fall for.

  4. MrsBPitt says:

    Would love to be the middle of a Colin and Wes sandwich!!! This is a premiere I would love to have been invited to. I love everyone who is there!!!!!

  5. Sullivan says:

    Why choose? It’s Christmas. I’ll take one of each. No need to wrap them.

  6. Laurita says:

    Guaranteed best post of the day, no matter what. So much tasty goodness and fun folks right there.

  7. nico says:

    I’m a huge fan of Mary Poppins and Walt Disney. Hopefully, the movie is fun to watch. Anybody seen it yet?

      It came out here in the UK a few weeks ago, and its *wonderful*. My second favourite movie of the year after 12 Years a Slave. Emma is incredible in it (actually, everyone is).

      BTW, the little girl with Colin is Annie Rose Buckley, who plays the young P.L. Travers in the movie.

    I’d take them both home, but would spend way more time with Wes.

  9. Birdix says:

    Colin looks like the swedish chef from the muppets.

  10. Lark says:

    I love Wes, and think it’s sweet he showed up to support Colin. They are both very into sober living since they are former addicts, and I wonder if that is how they met? I’m glad he’s getting steady, solid work and he’s even going to be in Nolan’s Interstellar.

    I think they both look hot, I always prefer a little scruff on my man. I love Emma’s dress, I have to say most of her clothing choices belong in the “What were you thinking category” but she’s amping it up lately.

  12. lenje says:

    Wes Bentley is beautiful, but I’m having a little headache now with the proliferation of men with beard, not just on this site but everywhere.

    Anyway, I so LOVE Julie Andrews. She just doesn’t age at all, does she?

  13. Lia says:

    I got to see a sneak preview of this movie a couple of weeks ago. I can’t praise it enough. It’s the best movie of the year.

  14. Christina says:

    Wes Bentley , no question. Colin looks like he smells like a dumpster. He grosses me out. He always appears to have thin layer of scuzz all over him. *shudder* . Also, I really cannot with his eyebrows…blech.

  15. Deb says:

    Wes for sure and Emma looks fab

  16. Elodie says:

    Unnnnfffffffff Irish sex prince Colin Farrell hands down!!!!!

  17. OriginallyBlue says:

    I don’t care what anyone says, I love me some Colin.

  18. Really says:

    I used to think that Colin Farrell would be fun in bed, kinda quick and dirty. But I recently saw his sex tape (hello 2006) and he’s way too eager-talky for me. ” I like that, do you like that? Watch me like it! You’re beautiful, so beautiful I want you to watch me do this cause I like that you like it…” blah, blah. Just shut up and eat.
    As for Wes Bentley, it seems like he’d want you to stare into each others eyes the whole time but I’d just turn myself around :)

  19. QQ says:

    I will NOT be picking sides, I will screw both at the same time should the opportunity present itself

  20. Grant says:

    Well Julie Andrews just looks phenomenal.

    Colin, for so many reasons: he’s sex on a stick, AND I love that suit.

  21. loveisthecoal says:

    I will take Wes. Although I like colin as an actor, for some reason he’s never done it for me like that.

    And oh my goodness, I would give ANYTHING to hang out with Emma Thompson and Julie Andrews for an evening. This looks like a really fun premiere!

  22. Tig says:

    The bits I have seen in SMB that so good. The actors they have cast as the Sherman brothers are absolutely perfect- the resemblance is uncanny.

    The Sherman brothers wrote all the music/songs for the Disney classics in the 60s. There is a great documentary about them- I think it’s called the Sherman Brothers(or close to that).

  23. JM says:

    While everyone fights over Colin and Wes, I’ll slip out the side door with Tom.

  24. Tara says:

    I know Wes has had his issues, but he looks amazing! Plus, I fell head over heels after seeing him in American Beauty WAY back in the day.
