After years of speculation, Jamie put rumours of a rift to rest at TIFF on Sept. 7 while he was on the red carpet for his new film Synchronic. He told reporters he would be supporting Dakota’s new movie, The Friend.
“We saw each other earlier today, we’re actually doing the same sort of press route,” said the dad of two, speaking to gathered media. “I’ve already seen her, but I’m not going to get a chance to see it here sadly, so I’ll get a ticket like everyone else.”
The Northern Irish actor said he was excited to be back in Toronto for yet another year at TIFF. Not only does Jamie star in Synchronic, he will also walk the red carpet for drama Endings, Beginnings alongside Shailene Woodley.
“It’s great, I love this festival,” added Jamie. “I always have a great time and it’s nice to be here with a couple of very very different films.”
Dakota looked absolutely stunning on the red carpet at the world premiere of The Friend on Sept. 6. She stars in the film alongside Jason Segel, who joined her at the screening that evening. The two were later spotted out at the premiere party for the film and looked incredibly happy to be spending time with each other, posing like the best of friends themselves as Jason put his arm around Dakota.
The next morning at Coffee With Creators presented by Nespresso while she was supporting the movie, Dakota said the humanity of the film's script was what attracted her to the role:
