The actresses, who starred together in 2021 On the Edge and have graced many a red carpet together over the years, looked in great spirits as they enjoyed a catch-up.

And while they’re known for their acting skills, they took the opportunity to showcase their dance moves too as they threw a few shapes in front of the cameras at the Mother and Son screening.

The movie spans over 20 years, from the family’s arrival in the French capital to the present day, and chronicles the family’s highs and lows including Rose’s struggles to balance being both a mother and a woman.

It stars Annabelle Lengronne as Rose, while the film is made by French writer-filmmaker Leonor Serraille, one of five female directors competing for the Palme d’Or award.

Helen’s dazzling appearance comes after it was recently announced the actress had been cast alongside Harrison Ford in the upcoming Yellowstone prequel series ‘1932’ for streaming service Paramount+.

The bold casting move proved Paramount+ is going big with the hugely popular franchise, particularly with Harrison, 79, who commanded a whopping $65,000,000 salary for his role in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in 2008.

Meanwhile Dame Helen doesn’t come cheap either after reportedly receiving $2,000,000 for just five days work on action flick The Fate Of The Furious.

1932, which is the show’s working title, will be an origin story that will introduce a new generation of the Dutton family.

Paramount+ said in a statement that the drama will ‘explore the early 20th century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression all plague the mountain West and the Duttons who call it home.’

There have been no further details on the characters that the movie stars will be playing.
