The 27-year-old French actress had two movies that premiered during the festival and she walked the carpet on both Saturday (July 10) and Monday (July 12) in Cannes, France.
Adele‘s two movies this year are Zero F–ks Given and The Stronghold. For those who don’t know, she made history at the festival eight years ago when her movie Blue is the Warmest Color premiered in 2013. She and co-star Lea Seydoux became the first actors to ever receive the Palme D’or, the top award at the festival that is usually awarded to just a film’s director.
“I have strong memories of Cannes. But what’s funny is that for Blue Is the Warmest Color, I didn’t really realize what was happening. I didn’t know publicity, I didn’t know what was meaningful or not, so everything was quite exciting. I didn’t even know that we got a Palme d’Or each!” she told THR at this year’s festival.
She continued, “I remember at around 4 a.m. after a party with my friends, one of them said, ‘Wow, did you know that it’s the first time ever and probably the last time that the Palme will go to an actor,’ and I was like, no! So for me Cannes really is the beginning of everything, but at the same time I’ve had both Cannes experiences. I went with Blue Is the Warmest Color and it was a huge success, and everyone was like ‘oh, it’s incredible,’ and then I went with the Sean Penn movie (The Last Face) and it was really hard. Cannes can really destroy you or build you up. There is obviously good, constructive criticism, but then there’s often [some] that seems quite unfair. There’s a lot of noise!
Lea Seydoux has four movies at the festival this year and there’s some bad news.
