Juliette and Maria swap LA glamour for Howth Head

IT'S a cold and miserable day -- and you're working on Howth Head. So French actress Juliette Binoche (48) and Maria Doyle Kennedy must be made of stern stuff -- laughing their heads off in between takes for a A Thousand Times Goodnight.

Maria (48), who recently featured in Downton Abbey and Titanic, plays Juliette's best friend in the film and is married to U2 drummer Larry Mullen's character.

But there was no sign of Larry on Howth Head yesterday.

Sipping coffee from a flask, Juliette and Maria were well wrapped up against the elements. Juliette was seen wearing a Munster Rugby padded jacket to keep herself cosy.

And while the cold winds on Howth Head might have cut through them, the two professionals got on with the work at hand.

The beautiful scenery will be used as a backdrop to Juliette and Maria's scene.

Oscar-winning actress Juliette plays the lead role in the movie about a woman torn between her family and her job as a war photographer.

The production began shooting on Dublin's city centre streets last week.

The film is inspired by Norwegian director Erik Poppe's experiences as a war photographer in the 1980s.
