Gwyneth Paltrow and Matt Damon joined director Steven Soderbergh today at the Venice Film Festival. Along with their costars Jennifer Ehle and Laurence Fishburne, they posed for photos at a press event for Contagion. Matt, still sporting the shaved head he needs to shoot Elysium, was in LA recently for the movie's junket — Matt shared his nickname "Red Alert" and spoke about working with Steven and Gwyneth. Gwyneth, meanwhile, added to the festival's glamour in a bright Prada dress. She rose early for the photo call after recently getting engrossed in a new TV show. She tweeted yesterday, "Just finished AMC's The Killing. Devastation! Any suggestions for a new series to get into?" Steven and Matt will team up later this week in NYC for their US premiere; though, Gwyneth isn't expected to join in on the Big Apple fun. However, Matt will have another leading lady from their star-studded cast for company on the red carpet, since Marion Cotillard will attend.
