Rachael Leigh Cook hit the red carpet this week with a very special guest.

The actress, 41, brought her 7-year-old daughter Charlotte to Wednesday's premiere of Netflix's He's All That in Hollywood, Calif. Cook stars in the gender-flipped remake of her iconic 1999 teen film She's All That, but this time, she plays the mom of the popular teen trying to turn the class geek into prom royalty.

Cook, who shares Charlotte and son Theodore, 6, with ex-husband Daniel Gillies, wore a one-shoulder, black and white polka dot dress while her daughter opted for a light pink dress with sequins.

The actress wasn't the only one to bring their child to the premiere — her costar Matthew Lillard also brought his 16-year-old daughter, Macey.

Cook, who split from Gillies in 2019 after 15 years of marriage, told Entertainment Tonight that it was actually her boyfriend Kevin Mann's idea to bring Charlotte to the star-studded event.

"My daughter swooped his invite," she teased. "He said, 'You know what? You guys should make it a girls night.' It was actually his idea to bring her instead of him... He's just an A+ human being."

The She's All That star said her daughter also brought up the premiere to her mom on her own.
