Reese Witherspoon Shows Off Her Baby Bump at Cannes

Originally posted 05/26/2012 10:15AM

She endured a 14-hour flight from Los Angeles, but you'd never know it when a pregnant Reese Witherspoon showed up at the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday in a form-fitting black jersey dress that showed off her bump.

Witherspoon, who also wore dangling diamond earrings and sky-high fuchsia stilettos, flew to Cannes with her husband Jim Toth to promote her new movie, Mud, which premieres Saturday at the festival.

The actress's presence at Cannes while pregnant was all the more surprising given what a small role she has in Mud.

Robert Pattinson: What Happens in My Pants Stays in My Pants

Originally posted 05/25/2012 11:00AM

Before director David Cronenberg's new movie about a young, rich financier, Cosmopolis, was unveiled at the Cannes Film Festival, its star, Robert Pattinson, did a little revelation of his own – though, apparently, not as much as his director had requested.

In an interview for Metro France that quickly got picked up around the festival, the Twilight star, 26, was quoted as saying, "Five minutes before we filmed, David told me, 'I want to see the bottom of your balls on the top of the frame.' At the moment, I reminded myself that I would do anything for him. So I went back to see him and told him that wouldn't happen."

And how did the filmmaker of The Fly, Scanner, Eastern Promises and A Dangerous Method react to his leading man's decision?

Zac Efron Is Uncomfortable & Excited About Sexed-Up New Movie Role

Originally posted 05/24/2012 04:15PM

Zac Efron is showing some skin – a lot of it, in fact – in his new film The Paperboy, which just debuted at the Cannes Film Festival.

"He was in his underwear half the time," said singer Macy Gray, who plays a maid and narrates the movie, which also stars Nicole Kidman as what one Cannes reviewer described as "an oversexed Barbie."

The movie, directed by Lee Daniels (Precious), is set in Florida in 1969 amid racial strife. Efron is 20-year-old Jack, the younger brother of a journalist (played by Matthew McConaughey) who has come back to his family's small town to investigate whether a man was wrongly condemned to death row. Kidman's character is fixated on the inmate.

In one early scene, Kidman tears off her pantyhose and has an orgasm while visiting the prisoner (played by John Cusack) on death row. Later, her character urinates on Efron on a beach after he is stung by jellyfish.

Kristen Stewart & Rob Pattinson Share a Kiss in Cannes

Originally posted 05/24/2012 11:10AM

When in Rome ... or rather, Cannes.

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson absorbed the romance of the French Riviera on Wednesday, sharing a kiss after a screening of Stewart's film On the Road at the Cannes Film Festival.

Finding time for a private moment together, Stewart, 22, leaned in to Pattinson, 26, and he kissed her forehead.

On the Road is an adaptation of Jack Kerouac's 1950s novel, and Stewart plays the main character Dean Moriarty's wife Marylou.

Kim Kardashian, Kanye West Nuzzle on the Beach in Cannes

Kim Kardashian is usually the one in the spotlight, but she played an affectionate supporting role Wednesday at the premiere of boyfriend Kanye West's experimental film in Cannes.

West, 34, and Kardashian, 31, were among the first to arrive at the tented pyramid on Palm Beach for the screening of Cruel Summer, an immersive video experience with screens on all sides of the audience. As they posed for photos, the wind caught Kardashian's hair, and West gently smoothed it back into place.

The reality star, in a glittering mini dress and black booties and with slicked-back hair, was quietly adoring of West all night, sharing moments with him and helping to welcome friends including Jay-Z. As the film wrapped, she leaned over and whispered smilingly into West's ear and heartily joined in the standing ovation he was given.

She seemed relaxed, though quiet, at the afterparty, happily nuzzling against West and letting him have his moment to shine.

Brad Pitt Parties with Diddy (and Ray Liotta) in Cannes

Originally posted 05/23/2012 11:30AM

After attending the premiere of his movie Killing Them Softly at the Cannes Film Festival Tuesday, Brad Pitt hosted an intimate party at Villa St. George that evening for close friends and people who were involved with the film.

About 100 people attended the soiree, which was sponsored by Johnny Walker Blue Label. Celebrities like Diddy, Kylie Minogue, Chris Tucker and Ray Liotta partied until the wee hours of the morning.

The party felt almost like a pre-bachelor party for the newly engaged Pitt, with refreshments including cigars and £250 bottles of Johnnie Walker whiskey.

Towards the end of the evening, Pitt's friend Diddy shared a celebratory drink with the actor over his engagement to Angelina Jolie, before inviting the entire party back to his yacht.

Brad Pitt: Wedding Engagement 'Made Sense'

Angelina Jolie wasn't by his side to promote his new film at this year's Cannes Film Festival, but that didn't stop Brad Pitt from sharing details about his bride-to-be.

Their long-awaited engagement was "something that made sense," he told reporters Tuesday on the French Riviera as he helped promote his new gangster film, Killing Them Softly.

In response to rumors that the couple, who have been together since 2005, are tying the knot in August, Pitt, 48, added, "We have no date at all right now – there is no date. We're still hoping for marriage equality in the States before we [get married.].

Sean Penn Hosts Star-Studded Benefit in Cannes

Originally posted 05/19/2012 12:00PM

Sean Penn was in a jovial mood Friday night at the Cannes Film Festival where he hosted a benefit for Haiti, which raised about $1.5 million.

The actor and activist hosted a starry affair attended by David Schwimmer, Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Diane Kruger, Jessica Chastain, Michelle Rodriguez, Ewan MacGregor, Gerald Butler and Penn's onetime gal pal Petra Nemcova, among others.

At one point Penn joked to the crowd: "I want to ask every woman here to turn to the man next to her and say I won't sleep with you tonight unless you make a big donation."

Two U2 VIP concert tickets and one of Bono's Gretsch guitars fetched 200,000 euros apiece, and three people shelled out $100,000 each to spend three days in Haiti with Penn.

The upbeat evening was a change from Friday afternoon when Penn went on a profanity-laced tirade about how the media and the world has abandoned Haiti in the wake of a devastating earthquake there.

Bill Murray's Flirty Night at French Bar

Originally posted 05/18/2012 12:30PM

Bill Murray seems to be indulging in the local nightlife while in France for the Cannes Film Festival.

Murray, 61, and director Wes Anderson arrived at the Hotel Martinez bar shortly after 1 a.m. Thursday evening. Murray in particular appeared to be thoroughly enjoying himself (and some drinks!), flirting with a woman at the bar and singing along with a piano player.

The actor was heard telling the object of his affection that he planned to give her a kiss at midnight, before realizing it was already the wee hours of the morning.

Around 3:30 a.m., Murray, still in very lively spirits, closed out the evening by paying tribute to his hometown and accompanying the pianist for a rendition of "Sweet Home Chicago." – Mary Green
