A pregnant Kim Kardashian flew to Atlanta for the premiere of her first feature film, Tyler Perry's Temptation, where the cast and writer/director couldn't stop raving about her.
"I think it was so responsible for her to do this movie," said Perry, citing the positive message conveyed in the film. "To have her do it and have as many young people that look up to her to see this message because of her -- I think it's really fantastic."
Temptation follows an explosive romance between Judith (played by Jurnee Smollett-Bell), an ambitious married woman, and Harley (Robbie Jones), a handsome social media billionaire who aggressively courts her. Kim plays Judith's co-worker at their high-end couple's therapy business.
"Tyler knew what he was doing when he casted her," said co-star Lance Gross, who was proud of Kardashian's feature film acting debut. "She put it down."
Kardashian credited Perry for creating an environment for her to flourish.
"I think it was such a good transition," said the 32-year-old reality star, who was battling a cold on the red carpet. "I think people will be pleasantly surprised."
