CANNES WATCH: Loren’s curves; downtime for Lutz
Question of the Day
CANNES, France (AP) - The Associated Press is all over the Cannes Film Festival - from its glitzy premieres to the celeb parties and quirky moments in between. Here’s what reporters have seen and heard:
LOREN SHOWS OFF CURVES
Svelte 79-year-old siren Sophia Loren has outshined women half her age at the Cannes film festival in head-to-toe red.
She playfully flirted with photographers Wednesday for the screening of “Human Voice,” directed by her son, Edoardo Ponti.
The age-defying Loren, who’s being honored as a special guest at this year’s festival, also wowed crowds with enviable curves at the premiere of “Two Days, One Night.” She wore an embellished champagne couture dress by Armani Prive.
Loren’s iconic 1964 film “Marriage Italian Style” is being shown at the festival.
‘EXPENDABLES’ STAR GETS DOWN TIME
He got it as the luxurious Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort in the Provence region hosted Lutz and other stars as a getaway from the Cannes madness. The 750-acre resort, which also has a vineyard, offered spa treatments and more, including culinary delights at a private dinner Tuesday night.
“It’s been exhausting in the best of ways,” said Lutz, who planned to go to Monte Carlo, which is hosting the Grand Prix, after Cannes. “I just want to lay out by the pool, get a massage. I never treat myself. … It’s just a great little break.”
Lutz was in Cannes for “The Expendables 3,” which made arguably the biggest splash at the festival. The all-star cast, which includes Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mel Gibson, Jason Statham and Harrison Ford, rode down the famous Croisette in tanks, held a raucous press conference and walked the red carpet. It’s out in the United States in August.
The “Twilight” actor called the experience surreal, particularly the Saturday morning tank ride, which drew a massive crowd.
“It was 10 a.m. … We’re like, who’s up at 10 a.m.? We had people running from where we started which was a mile away,” he said.
