Bridget Moynahan recently talked to OnTheRedCarpet.com about Earth's vulnerability and alien existence at the "Battle: Los Angeles" premiere on March 8, 2011.
"It's fun to think about [aliens]," Moynahan told OnTheRedCarpet.com. "Obviously, a lot of people think it's fun to think about it because we make a lot of movies about the concept, but I think what's special about this one is the opening frames of the film and you recognize your home town and you recognize the vulnerability aspect of it and it makes you really nervous."
In the movie, a Marine platoon is forced to defend Los Angeles after Earth is attacked by aliens. It's up to the Marine staff sergeant Michael Nantz (Aaron Eckhart) and his new crew to hold their ground against the unknown forces. Moynahan stars as a civilian who gets rescued by the Marines along with her "Ramona and Beezus" co-star, Joey King, who plays her niece in the movie.
Moynahan, 39, says that the alien thriller is an "incredible ride" that will leave audiences feeling a mess of emotions.
"It's an incredible ride. It's one of those movies where you're gonna be at the edge of your seat, you're going to have chills, you're going to be scared, you're going to be crying."
Moynahan played Natasha in HBO's "Sex and the City" and currently stars as Erin Reagan-Boyle in the CBS drama "Blue Bloods." She's also had roles in movies like "I, Robot," "Lord of War" and "The Recruit."
The actress dated football player Tom Brady from 2004 until 2006, shortly after the couple's break-up, she announced that she was pregnant with his child. John Edward Thomas Moynahan was born on August 22, 2007. Brady married supermodel Gisele Bündchen in 2009 and had a child later in the year.
