Julia Roberts and Lily Collins Brave the Rain at the "Mirror Mirror" Premiere

Sadly, Julia Roberts didn't have a real magic mirror to use to blow away the bad weather in Hollywood on Saturday morning, March 17, so she and her co-star Lily Collins had to brave some pouring rain to celebrate the premiere of "Mirror Mirror," their new fantasy film.

Roberts, who plays the wicked queen to Collins' Snow White in the film, eschewed formal wear for the early-in-the-day premiere, settling on a demure black pantsuit. But Collins, whose famous father Phil escorted her to the fete, went full-out glamorous in a strapless party dress. But neither one wore green, despite it being St. Patrick's Day and Roberts having Irish roots.

But there were actually a few Irish-loving celebrities who took to the green under the massive tent set up outside Grauman's Chinese Theater, including the film's costars Michael Lerner and Bonnie Bentley, as well as Christopher MacDonald, who sported a bright-green hat and brought his two young daughters, who paired their green with some pink accents. In fact, much of the excited audience went for wearing pink, sporting tiaras, pink boas and "Princess" sashes given out as they arrived. The PG-rated fairy-tale film is aimed right at the tweener age group and the place was chockablock with those girls, most ranging in age from 7 to 13. They happily added the princess touches and were completely excited about seeing the movie.

Which is ironic, considering that the star of "Mirror Mirror" refuses to let her own children (twins age 7 and a 4 year old) watch much television nor see many movies, and they were left at home while their mother worked the red carpet.

"We have a pretty rigid viewing feeling in our house," Roberts explained to reporters at an earlier press conference. "We're more book people in our house. I was raised on television, but for us we just feel there's a real time and a place for it. I don't think it's that mysterious, really, (to limit their viewing time), and it's nice that it opens up other options, for stories and poetry and talking, sharing ideas."

Roberts' rules notwithstanding, her movie's first big showing drew a lot of kids, who came to check it out along with their famous parents. Russell Simmons brought his little girls, Lori Laughlin hers, Tia Carrere came with her young daughter, and Molly Ringwald included her two children, too. Also along for the screening and after party were "Mirror Mirror" director Tarsem Singh, co-star Sean Bean, and friends, including Victoria Justice, Marcia Gay Harden, Cody Simpson, Debby Ryan, Wayne Brady and Cloris Leachman.
