Louis-Dreyfus reveals plane ordeal

Julia Louis-Dreyfus has revealed she was once forced to move seats on a plane because of the unpleasant smell coming from a neighbouring passenger.

Sporting a black dress with a beaded collar at the Los Angeles premiere of new Disney movie Planes, the Veep actress said it was one of her worst experiences on an aircraft.

"I've had a few but recently I was seated next to a gentleman who had the worst BO of anyone I have ever smelt in my entire life, it was grotesque. I have had two children, I have changed diapers and it was bad - I got moved."

The Seinfeld star added it was tricky to request the transfer without seeming rude, but added: "I'm a very good actress."

Julia provides the voice of pink plane Rochelle in the new animated flick, which also features the vocal talents of Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher. It tells the story of a cropdusting plane called Dusty, voiced by Dane Cook, who's terrified of heights but wants to compete in an aerial race.

Dressed in a strapless gold gown, Teri was accompanied by her daughter to the movie's premiere at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.

Teri lends her voice to mechanic Dottie.

She said: "I really like that Dottie is a girl and a mechanic and I have a secret fantasy that girls will go and see this movie and ask for plastic wrenches and screwdrivers for their Christmas gift because they want to put together engines. It's a subtle message that girls can be mechanics too and I love that."

Planes flies into UK cinemas on August 16.
