Hollywood stars Jeff Bridges and Olivia Wilde have braved the bitterly cold temperatures for the UK premiere of Tron: Legacy.

The House actress, 26, who plays fearless warrior Quorra in the 3D film, wore a one-shouldered sequinned Armani minidress and Stella McCartney heels as she arrived at the Empire cinema in London's West End.

"She looks amazing, doesn't she?" said Bridges, giving her a hug.

Bridges, 61, admitted he had doubts about reprising his role as video game developer Kevin Flynn in the long-awaited sequel, 28 years after the 1982 original.

"I had a little bit of hesitation. They assured me it wasn't just beautiful eye candy and it would be a good story," he said.

"They came up with one and I am thrilled with it. It's wonderful. I had heard the rumours for so long."

He promised fans wouldn't be disappointed with the follow-up, adding: "It's a real ride."

Joining Bridges in Tron: Legacy is original cast member Bruce Boxleitner as his colleague Alan Bradley.

Director Joseph Kosinski said: "It was really important to have a connection to the original film. Jeff Bridges, you know, is one of the best actors working today."

In Tron: Legacy, which opens in cinemas on Friday December 17, Kevin's son (Garrett Hedlund) goes in search of his missing dad (Bridges) and finds himself pulled into the cyber universe, where Kevin had been trapped for 20 years.
