Despite their roles as tramps-turned-human-punching-bags in director Michael Winterbottom’s controversial adaptation of the Jim Thompson’s 1952 novel The Killer Inside Me, Kate Hudson and Jessica Alba appeared to be in a playful mood during the film’s premiere at the 9th annual Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
The sexy duo held hands and posed for photographers during the red carpet event. Alba even appear to cop a feel on Hudson’s cooter. After the premiere, Alba and Hudson partied with Winterbottom and costar Casey Affleck at the film’s after-party.
The Killer Inside Me follows sadistic sociopath Lou Ford (Affleck), a 29-year-old Texas lawman engaged in a beat, fuck, and kill spree.
The film’s extreme use of misogynistic sex and violence caused a shit-storm of criticism at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, inciting vocal protest and walkouts (click here to see the good stuff offending scenes). Regardless, IFC picked up the North American rights to the film for $1.5 million.
The Killer Inside Me will be released in summer.
