The Cannes Film Festival is winding down, but the stars who have made appearances at the international event will have plenty of memories captured by camera lenses, and even a few A-list cell phones. Matt Damon stole the show with his multiple red carpet stops for Behind the Candelabra on Tuesday, while stars like Justin Timberlake and Garrett Hedlund buddied up for a quick iPhone snap. Steven Spielberg took in the massive crowd at the premiere of Inside Llewyn Davis earlier in the week, and Alessandra Ambrosio is just one of several celebrities who documented sightseeing adventures while off the red carpet. Click through to see how stars turned to camera phones and took advantage of photo ops while in Cannes!
The Cannes Film Festival opens tomorrow, but celebrities are already making their glamorous French Riviera entrances. Nicole Kidman shimmered onto the scene today, and Steven Spielberg greeted the crowd before heading into a photocall for the festival's jury panel. Cannes first-timer Emma Watson touched down at Nice airport earlier in the day, as did Leonardo DiCaprio.
The festival will start off with a 3D showing of Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby tomorrow and will showcase other highly anticipated films like Ryan Gosling's Only God Forgives and Steven Soderbergh's Behind the Candelabra, starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon. The international movie madness will run for 12 days and finish on May 26 with awards hand-selected by this year's jury. We'll be on the scene in France, so make sure to check back for updates straight from the festival!
Sometimes when a director and actor meet, it's a match made in movie heaven — so why wouldn't they team up again? Pairings like Tim Burton and Johnny Depp have held on to partnerships for years, creating scores of wonderful films. These are the relationships I want to celebrate: that particular kinship between a filmmaker and a muse. Take a look through to see some of my all-time favorite duos.
Video: Prince Harry Talks Diana, Johnny's New Role, and the Return of David Brent — Today's Headlines
Prince Harry traveled to South Africa for a gala last night, where he spoke about being inspired by his late mother, Princess Diana. In this POPSUGAR Rush, we're looking at what else the royals have been up to — including Prince William's heroic rescue of stranded hikers — as well as giving details on Johnny Depp's new roles and Ricky Gervais's plans to bring back The Office's David Brent.
The fun continued inside Friday afternoon's AFI Awards in LA. The bash, held at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, was held to honor the year's best in film and television. A total of 10 films, including Silver Linings Playbook, Argo, Les Misérables, and Lincoln, were supported by their stars and directors. Daniel Day-Lewis made the rounds with his costar Sally Field and director Steven Spielberg, while Argo's Ben Affleck, fresh off a win in the best director category at the Critics' Choice Awards, was accompanied by his producers George Clooney and Grant Heslov.
The Silver Linings Playbook clan also had a good night at the Critics' Choice Awards. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence won top honors as best actor and actress in a comedy, and she also won best actress in an action movie for The Hunger Games. Their leading lady Jacki Weaver posed with Jennifer, and they were both in a celebratory mood because, in addition, their cast won best ensemble at the CCAs. The Les Mis crowd was well-represented, too. Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne, and Hugh Jackson all attended. They said hello to friends from movies and television, which included cast members from Mad Men, like Christina Hendricks, and the stars of Girls, Modern Family, and more.
Anne Hathaway was one of the stars that came out for a special screening of Lincoln in NYC last night. Director Steven Spielberg, Daniel Day-Lewis, who plays President Lincoln in the movie, Tommy Lee Jones, and leading lady Sally Field were all on hand. Kellan Lutz broke from Breaking Dawn Part 2 press to watch the film and 666 Park Avenue's Dave Annable showed support for his former Brothers and Sisters costar Sally. Chloë Sevigny, Patrick Wilson, and Michael Strahan also attended ahead of Lincoln's big opening tomorrow. Anne Hathaway has her own project hitting theaters with Les Misérables coming out on Christmas Day. Anne's been making the rounds promoting the period piece, including a recent Vogue cover and role as host of the Women's Media Awards on Tuesday.
Stars hit the red carpet at the 2012 BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel last night. Daniel Craig was joined by his Skyfall Bond girls, Bérénice Marlohe and Naomie Harris, but it was his wife, Rachel Weisz, who he leaned in to kiss before picking up the British artist of the year honor.
Daniel Day-Lewis was also in attendance, and after Steven Spielberg presented him with the Stanley Kubrick Award for Excellence in Film, he took advantage of his stage time to show off his funny side. Daniel thanked BAFTA with a spoof of Clint Eastwood's conversation with an empty chair at the Republican National Convention. The comical speech was somewhat unexpected from Daniel, who is best known for his serious roles, including Spielberg's Lincoln, which hits theaters next week. The Britannia Awards will be broadcast on BBC America Nov. 11 at 8 p.m. ET as a two-hour special.
With movies like Jaws, Indiana Jones, and E.T., Steven Spielberg has become one of the most beloved directors of our time. His latest directorial effort, Lincoln, arrives in theaters this week. Before you see it, test your knowledge of his past work by matching each picture to the title we grabbed it from.
Gwyneth Paltrow had a huge smile on her face as she arrived at Elio's restaurant in NYC to celebrate her 40th birthday last Friday. She was joined by a group of famous pals, including Christy Turlington, Chelsea Handler, Kristen Wiig, Jessica Seinfeld, and Ethan Hawke for the dinner. Gwyneth arrived with Cameron Diaz, and Beyoncé Knowles also made an appearance. Beyoncé continued to honor her friend Saturday when she shared a birthday message to Gwyneth during her surprise performance at Jay-Z's final Barclays Center concert. Gwyneth had family in attendance at the meal as well with her mom, Blythe Danner, and godfather, Steven Spielberg, stepping out.
It was the latest birthday fun for Gwyneth, who also marked her big day with dinner at the River Cafe in London last Thursday. Stella McCartney, Hugh Grant, Jamie Oliver, and photographer Mario Testino were among the stars who gathered to fete the actress following Gwyneth and her family's trip to Italy at the end of September.
There's a poignant new trailer for Lincoln, and while the first preview provides context for the historical drama, this one gives a more extensive look at Daniel Day-Lewis as our 16th president. It also aims to evoke some emotions, flashing images of modern-day Washington DC, the Tribute in Light for the World Trade Center, Martin Luther King Jr., and other famous civil rights leaders from American history.
After seeing Day-Lewis's speeches as Lincoln here, I'm more excited than ever to see his full transformation into Honest Abe. I also appreciate the snippet of personal drama we see between him and his wife, played by Sally Field, though I'm hoping to see more of Joseph Gordon-Levitt as their son as we get closer to the release date. The movie hits theaters Nov. 16, and you can watch the trailer when you read more.
