Oprah And Forest Hit 'The Butler' NY Premiere, While Mariah Carey Makes A Fashion Statement Out Of An Arm Injury [Photos]

'The Butler' looks set to be one of the most memorable movies of the year with an all-star cast that glittered on the red carpet at the New York premiere  last night (August 5th 2013).

Sparkling the brightest was Oprah Winfrey in a pretty pink sequined gown with her hair in full afro form, alongside her onscreen husband Forest Whitaker who plays the title role, and her real partner Stedman Graham. Nursing a dislocated shoulder in a funky studded sling was Mariah Carey, who has not been letting her injury get in the way of anything she does at the moment as this wasn't the first time she has stepped out in a quirky bling sling. Some of the presidents from the movie also showed up, including Liev Schreiber who played Lyndon B. Johnson and James Marsden who was John F. Kennedy, as well as First Ladies Minka Kelly as Jackie Kennedy and Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan.

Other guests who also made appearances in the film were Lenny Kravitz who was pictured with his guest Cicely Tyson, and Nelsan Ellis who played the role of Martin Luther King Jr. in the movie. Director Lee Daniels also showed up to support his actors. The movie is about the life and career of Cecil Gaines, a butler who served eight presidents with much dedication and is based on a heart-warming true story.
