They are some of the most glamorous and successful leading ladies of film.

Marion Cotillard, Nicole Kidman, and Scarlett Johansson are among stars snapped by London photographer Andy Gotts for a project started by Bafta eight years ago to record all living performers ever nominated for its movie honours.

The portraits are among 100 at an exhibition opening on Monday ahead of the Bafta awards on February 16. It also features Juliette Binoche, Jodie Foster, Al Pacino, Johnny Depp, Robert De Niro, and Clint Eastwood. Gotts told how he was initially given just 12 minutes with Brad Pitt on the set of Troy: “But he said, ‘Take as long as you want.’ One and a half hours later we were arm-wrestling.” Pitt handed Gotts his phone with George Clooney on the line. Clooney invited the photographer to his villa in Italy, where Gotts found him feeding the ducks on Lake Como.

Gotts, 42, has taken pictures of more than half of about 800 candidates.

The exhibition, Behind The Mask, runs from January 20-February 7 at Somerset House, before a smaller display at Bafta HQ in Piccadilly. Limited edition prints are on sale to support Bafta’s charitable work.
