Hollywood stars Henry Cavill and Samuel L Jackson aren’t easily upstaged, but it was Claudia Schiffer’s cat who stole the show at a film premiere.

Dua Lipa, Sam Rockwell, Bryan Cranston and Bryce Dallas Howard were among the stars attending the launch of spy film Argylle in London’s Leicester Square.

But Schiffer brought along her cat Chip, who appears in the film and hoovered up all the media attention.

Photos from the night were posted to Chip’s 13,000 followers on Instagram.

The cat could be seen through a perspex dome in Schiffer’s argyle-patterned backpack cat cattier – complete with plenty of air holes.

These backpacks are custom-made so cats can be transported safely – cat owners inspired by Schiffer and Chip should not put their pets into ordinary backpacks.

Other stars at the London premiere included John Cena, Ariana DeBose, Sofia Boutella, Rob Delaney, Jing Lusi, Matthew Vaughn.

Vaughn, who has been married to Schiffer since 2002, directed the film, which is released in the UK next month.

In the film, Chip plays the role of Alfie, the cat belonging to spy novelist Elly – played by Howard.

She and her cat are saved from being kidnapped after her books begin to depict the activities of a sinister underground group.
