They’ve just celebrated a Golden Globe win for their movie at Sunday’s glittering ceremony in LA.
But there’s been no let-up on the promo trail for the Creed cast as Sylvester Stallone led the arrivals at the London premiere of the anticipated film on Tuesday night.
The movie legend walked the red carpet with leading lady Tessa Thompson, who wowed in a shimmering purple dress with a daring thigh-high split.
