London: Cate Blanchett and Andy Serkis felt the chill when they arrived at their upcoming movie ‘The Hobbit’s premiere at Leicester Square in London.

Andy Serkis - who portrayed Gollum in the trilogy - was the first to arrive with his wife Lorraine Ashbourne, who in a backless and sleeveless dress drew gasps of sympathy from onlookers as she braved the cold, the Independent reported.
The couple shivered their way down the green carpet.

Australian actress Cate Blanchett, who reprised the role of the elf Galadriel for the new movies, arrived wearing a white, backless Givenchy dress and didn’t stop for many interviews, as she felt the chill and dashed into the Odeon with a borrowed coat over her shoulders.
