And ‘Away’ they go

Star-powered toon preems in Gotham

“Flushed Away” stars Hugh Jackman and Kate Winslet were almost blown away at the computer-animated pic’s Sunday premiere.

Thesps had to contend with strong gusts of wind as they slipped down a 30-foot inflatable toilet slide onto the blue carpet prior to the screening at AMC Lincoln Square.

Winslet admitted that she had to rely on her acting chops while working on “Flushed” — her first CGI film.

“It was almost as hard than working on a (live action) film not only because you use only your voice but it is only you,” she said. “Hugh and I didn’t record anything together. There is quite a lot of guesswork that goes into it.”
