Exclusive! The BettyConfidential Cannes Recap
We journeyed to the South of France to bring you all the Cannes Film Festival celebrity insider news.
The star-studded Cannes Film Festival has come to a close. The festivities may have started off with dreary weather, but that did not stop the stars from heading to the French Riviera to check out, promote, or be claiming to promote (ahem – Lilo) the hottest new films. BettyConfidential headed to the South of France and brought you back a special gift: (sorry, no keys to a villa in St. Tropez THIS time) but a close second: tidbits of the inside on all the hottest events in Cannes and Monte Carlo.
The first weekend the celebs headed over to Monte Carlo where we spotted Paris and Nicky Hilton partying at Flavio Briatore’s party at Club Billionaire alongside a greasy Brandon Davis “I’m just here for fun,” he told us. Hey, at least he admits he has nothing to do with the films or Monaco Grand Prix.
On Saturday Woody Allen’s You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger premiered to a packed theater including leading lady Naomi Watts, Woody’s wife Soon-Yi Previn, Josh Brolin and Diane Lane. After the credits rolled on the director’s latest mix of comedy and drama, the crowd gave the film a standing ovation with enthusiastic applause. At a private dinner in an exclusive backroom at the Hotel Martinez, Woody hosted a small group of friends with whom he shared his insecurities about the movie. “I’m not sure if they were clapping for the film or for me,” he shared.
