Every look was chic. Rebel Wilson couldn’t be ignored in a red hot Torrid frock, Alison Brie was edgy in a strapless Monse Maison LBD, Dakota Johnson was lovely in a Saint Laurent gown and Leslie was fun and flirty in a Marchesa dress.

She may be the eldest of the four, but Leslie proved she can give her younger co-stars a run for their money.

Is George of the Jungle a parody of Tarzan?

19 years earlier, Leslie Mann starred as wealthy heiress Ursula Stanhope in the 1997 American comedy film “George of the Jungle.”

The Tarzan-type spoof was a box office hit and debuted at No. 2 at the box office behind “Men in Black.”

Filmed inside an empty airplane hanger in Playa Del Rey in California, with a mix of real animals, puppetry, and CGI, Leslie Mann developed a real-life crush on her co-star, Brendan Fraser, during filming. Additional scenes were shot in San Francisco and Hawaii.

“He was just delightful and funny. In the movie, I’m supposed to fall in love with him, and so I just fell in love with him in real life,” she revealed during an episode of the American late-night talk show Busy Tonight.

Leslie Mann was 25 when the movie was released in theatres on July 16, 1997. Born on March 26, 1972, in San Francisco, she turned 26 on March 26, 1998. Her co-star Brendan Fraser turned 28 on December 3, 1996.

The then 43-year-old actress arrived at the premiere of “How to Be Single” with her husband, Judd Apatow, who was neat in a navy suit and a crisp white shirt. They met during Mann’s audition for The Cable Guy.

The “Vacation” star kept it fresh and youthful in a sexy and quite revealing cocktail dress from Marchesa’s Spring 2016 line. Her high-necked dress featured a romantic black Chantilly lace bodice and a pink feathery skirt.
