On Wednesday, actress Julia Roberts looked pretty in pink at the premiere of Amazon psychological thriller series Homecoming which she stars in.

But things were not so pretty on the first day of shooting when she could have been hit by a flag that got loose.

It was headed towards her and the danger prompted actor Shea Whigham to shield her by hugging her. “He at least saved me a trip to the hospital,” she said at the premiere.
