Ga Ga: British Actress Naomie Harris Steals Hearts in My Last Five Girlfriends at TriBeCa Film Festival

mylastfivegirlfriends-naomie-harris In the British bromantic comedy My Last Five Girlfriends, which premiered Thursday night in New York, Londoner Naomie Harris was the girlfriend that stole the TriBeCa Film Festival's hearts (or at least Blindie's!)

Last week, the Brit beauty nabbed three Grammy nominations, including Record of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "Bleeding Love," while her debut album Spirit received a nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album. With her powerful vocals, Lewis is often compared to contemporary greats like Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. "It's quite scary," she recently said of the comparisons. "It's a massive compliment.
