The 2023 Cannes Film Festival kicked off on Tuesday, May 16, and it’s already brought together some of the biggest and brightest stars in the world. Ahead of the screening of Johnny Depp’s “Jeanne du Barry,” which opened the festival, photographers captured glamorous looks from Elle Fanning, Candice Swanepoel, Naomi Campbell, and more on the red carpet. Helen Mirren debuted her new blue hair and Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones made it a family affair. Plus, Oscar winner Brie Larson made a splash as well — and she’s on the festival’s jury, so expect many more appearances from her this year. And on May 17, Viola Davis, Iris Law, Laura Harrier, and Ethan Hawke all hit the red carpet before screenings of “Monster” and “Strange Way of Life.” A day later, Adriana Lima and boyfriend Andre Lemmers were photographed kissing on the Cannes carpet.
May 20 brought the premiere of Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon,” and a bevy of stars showed up to see the film. Among those who walked the red carpet were the movie’s stars Leonardo DiCaprio and new dad Robert De Niro, Will Ferrell, and Naomi Campbell.
Other films that are screening at this year’s festival include Wes Anderson’s “Asteroid City,” “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny,” and Todd Haynes’s “May December.” Disney and Pixar’s newest film, “Elemental,” will also close out the festivities. Plus, HBO and the Weekend’s very buzzy (and controversial) series “The Idol” will also be debuting its first episodes out of competition before its premiere this June.
All that’s to say it’s set to be a very buzzy — and very star-studded — festival this year, so come back to see who else heads to the French Riviera this month. See all the star sightings so far ahead.
