Screen beauty Joely Richardson was keen to distance herself from new movie SHOREDITCH at the film's London premiere yesterday (27NOV03).

The Patriot actress claimed she had "no idea" how the critically slammed film had turned out because it was filmed in 2001 - and left before the screening in LEICESTER SQUARE, even though she's never seen the finished version.

She says, "A lot of the film is modern. But I was only involved in the flashbacks so I have got no idea what the film looks like now. It was made two year ago."

The British period drama, which also stars TV soap actor Shane Richie, has been slammed by some critics as one of the worst film's ever made.
