It’s Hobbit parky out

CATE Blanchett

CATE Blanchett

CATE Blanchett braves the freezing cold in a backless dress last night as she poses before the UK premiere of the new Hobbit film.

But the Aussie star – who plays elf queen Galadriel – quickly donned a black jacket after joking to the crowds in London’s Leicester Square: “The weather is enough to drive anyone away but it is great to see so many fans.”

Prince William was alone at the event. He said pregnant wife Kate, who has been laid low with severe morning sickness, “would have loved to have been here”.

The Office star Martin Freeman, who plays the lead Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, posed with his partner Amanda Abbington. Also present was Sir Ian McKellen— Gandalf in the film.

Pop idols McFly were greeted by hundreds of screaming fans as they arrived in matching suits.

Comic Jimmy Carr arrived with a Starbucks cup in his hand — in a possible jibe about his and the coffee giant’s tax avoidance antics.
