Hollywood star Al Pacino has fallen down on the red carpet of BAFTAs.
The Oscar-winning actor, 79, is nominated at the BAFTA Film Awards tonight for his role as Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa in Martin Scorsese’s gangster epic The Irishman.
Al is competing against co-star Joe Pesci, Brad Pitt in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Tom Hanks in A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood, and Anthony Hopkins in the Two Popes for the Best Actor in a Supporting Role award.
Pacino was walking the red carpet at the Royal Albert Hall in London when he took a tumble and had to be helped to his feet by those around him.
It is unknown what caused the fall but he appeared to struggle with stairs at the ceremony.
Al seemed in good spirits otherwise as he posed for photos on the red carpet as the stars arrived.
He spoke to the BBC on the red carpet and spoke about working again with Robert De Niro in the film.
Al said: “He’s great, the thing with Robert is you can do anything. That’s the pleasure I have of working with him.”
The Godfather star also spoke about the much-discussed de-aging process that he and his co-stars underwent for the film.
“I think it’s a new thing,” said Al, “and one wonders how is it going to hold up and what is it going to turn into, but it’s being done a lot in films.”
It’s been 44 years since Al won a BAFTA for his performance in The Godfather II.
Will he win big tonight?
