- Shock phrase, essential photos, indiscretions, glitter, etc. Every evening, around 18:30 pm, 20 Minutes gives you its recap of the Cannes day, from the red carpet to the backstage of the Croisette.
It's raining, it's raining on the Croisette. This made the Australian Cate Blanchett, very elegant, and the Quebecer Monia Chokri, in tight outfit, laugh a lot during their respective photocalls. Perhaps a little less Harrison Ford who had released his surprise Palme d'Or and Sean Penn, who never smiles. In short, once again the stars did not miss the call, these stars that we pick up with a shovel ...
Today's event: Harrison Ford under all emotions
Harrison Ford smiling at the enthusiastic reception of festival-goers, Harrison Ford stunned (but delighted) when he was told a surprise Palme d'Or d'honneur, Harrison Ford shedding a tear during the standing ovation that followed the screening of the film, Harrison Ford trying to make his way between the raindrops during the photo call, And who finds himself once again surprised (and delighted?) when a journalist confides to him in conference that she still finds him "hot"...
"I was blessed by this body" Harrison Ford responds to a journalist who told him that she still finds it "

The protest of the day: support for the writers' strike
Coincidence: while a small delegation of the CGT demonstrated in front of the Carlton against the pension reform and to denounce "working conditions in the hotel and restaurant industry", American stars defended the screenwriters on strike in Hollywood. After Ethan Hawke on his T-shirt, it was Sean Penn's turn today to plead their cause. "The industry has been making fun of screenwriters for a long time," he said at a press conference of Black Flies, an American film signed by Frenchman Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire. I support this strike. Producers have become bankers. The writers must be paid properly. American screenwriters, French restaurant workers, same fight?
Photo of the day: Ethann Isidore, a French star is born

At 20, the granddaughter of Catherine Deneuve and Marcello Mastroianni knows what she owes to her family heritage. "You would have to be above ground not to realize how lucky I am to belong to this family that has passed on so many treasures to me: culture first, but also the passion for art, music and cinema," she told Madame Figaro on Thursday. Anna Biolay hopes to get rid of the label "daughter of", to make a name. Her illustrious parents, divorced since 2009, but remained very close, are very proud of their daughter whom they encourage to follow an artistic path. "Many actors hope that their children will not go down this path, not me," Chiara Mastroianni admitted in the same newspaper. "The world constantly reminds her that she is the daughter of Chiara, the granddaughter of Catherine Deneuve and Marcello Mastroianni, but she is also my daughter and the granddaughter of the Biolay grandparents who live in Beaujolais. She is fully aware of these more provincial and popular roots, "tempered Benjamin Biolay in March in Paris Match. According to her father, Anna is not only an aspiring actress but also a born singer. He also made him contribute to his album Grand Prix, released in 2020, under the pseudonym Bambi.
