Let it never be said that Mick Jagger isn’t a gentleman.
As the Daily Mail reports, the 76-year-old Rolling Stones frontman proved that while walking the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival alongside his “The Burnt Orange Heresy” co-stars Donald Sutherland and Elizabeth Debicki.
Noticing that one of the layers of the 29-year-old actress’s black satin gown had become tangled, Sir Mick sprang into action with the kind of chivalry befitting a knight of the realm.
As Debicki tried to fix her dress, the quick-thinking rock legend crouched down and adjusted the layers until they were as they should be.
Jagger makes his long-awaited return to the silver screen in the upcoming thriller, playing art dealer Joseph Cassidy, who invites an avaricious art critic (Claes Bang) to his luxurious villa in Lake Como and offers him a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: he’ll set him up with a rare interview with famous and famously reclusive artist James Debney (Sutherland) — if he steals one of his paintings.
“Acting and singing on stage is all performing, it’s just different kinds of performing, one is live and one isn’t. It’s the smallest role in the film but it’s an important part,” Jagger explained during a news conference at the festival, reports Reuters.
“I really enjoyed doing this movie,” he added. “The script was really interesting and different and literary and surprising… You don’t really know if [the main characters] are telling the truth or not and part of the movie is about what is the truth and do we believe these people when they say this.”
“The Burnt Orange Heresy” has its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 6:30 p.m. at Roy Thomson Hall.
