Irina Shayk, the fetching swimsuit and lingerie model, made her debut on the red carpet at the premiere of “Hercules” in Hollywood, which marks her first major feature role in a motion picture.
Shayk is best known for her exotic looks in dozens of swimsuit and lingerie campaigns as well as seven straight appearances in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue (2007-14).
She appeared on the SI swimsuit cover in 2011.
But “Hercules,” which stars Dwayne Johnson as the super-strong demigod, is her first feature film role. She plays the wife.
The action-adventure flick, directed by Brett Ratner also stars Ian McShane, Reece Ritchie, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Joseph Fiennes and John Hurt. It is based on the comic book, “Hercules: The Thracian Wars.”
The 28-year-old Russian native is also known for dating soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. They have been in a relationship for the past four years.
The Hollywood trades have given the film a thumb’s up and it’s received an overall score of 71 percent on rottentomatoes, which tracks reviews.
So far no mention of Shayk’s acting skills among the 17 critics who reviewed the film, so far. But as eye candy, Irina is an undeniable star.
The film opens in theaters tomorrow (July 25).
