“MICHAEL JACKSON” SURPRISE APPEARANCE AT CANNES

We can’t take our eyes off this Michael Jackson impersonator, either. He appeared on the red carpet for the Solo: A Star Wars Story screening in Cannes and attracted a lot of attention. But can he sing and dance? We might never know because we couldn’t find out who he is, but we’d love to have him at our next party.

SEAN PENN’S MOVIE FLOPS AT CANNES FILM FESTIVAL WHILE CHARLIZE SMILES

The minute we heard (well over a year ago) that Sean Penn was planning to direct his girlfriend Charlize Theron in a movie, we predicted the demise of the relationship. We figured Penn wouldn’t be able to control his impulses and temper under difficult circumstances and Charlize would be turned off. Whether it was his temper or his limited talent, Charlize ended the romance shortly after filming. Some critics imagined that it only took her one look at the rushes to cut all ties. The movie, The Last Face, was declared the worst at Cannes, with the audience alternately laughing out loud and booing. One critic called it “the pompous nadir of Sean Penn’s career” and and it was suggested he stop directing. To her credit, Charlize showed up for the premier and her reunion with Penn was described as “awkward.”
Above, Charlize is in the black tux (with heels) standing between Sean’s son Hopper (he’s in the movie) and Javier Bardem, who plays her love interest. Sean is not wearing the required black tie.

ROSE MCGOWAN KNOWS WHAT SHE’S TALKING ABOUT

Nothing gets past our favorite feminist Rose McGowan. Just three of the 20 films selected for the Cannes Film Festival were directed by women. The festival director said “Don’t blame us “ – implying that the problem is rooted in Hollywood. But Rose isn’t letting them off the hook. She told The Hollywood Reporter “Those 17 who are not women should be forced to walk down the red carpet in high heels!” (Remember the appalling controversy last year in Cannes when women were not PERMITTED on the red carpet in flat shoes!) Rose says “There are so many levels of embedded misogyny that people don’t even realize. It starts with ‘You HAVE to wear high heels’ and goes to ‘We don’t accept you as a filmmaker.’” Hey Rose, when you’re RIGHT, you’re RIGHT…

JANE FONDA SAYS SPANX WERE HER BEST FRIEND IN FASHION FRENZIED CANNES

119506PCN_AmfarGalajanecut

Jane Fonda doesn’t mind telling the world that she can’t LIVE without her Spanx. She credits the springy undergarments for keeping her slim and smooth in Cannes. Jane wrote on her website that she met the founder of Spanx, Sara Blakely, 16 years ago when they both lived in Atlanta. Back then, Sara had just developed her product and was attempting to sell Spanx out of her backpack. Now she’s a billionaire! And Jane Fonda won’t go anywhere without her Spanx!

119297PCN_Stone08cut

Sharon Stone, 56, is having the time of her life in Cannes, dressing up and hopping from one yacht party to the next. And why not? Europeans consider her to be a huge movie star and they roll out the red carpet for her. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that she always looks incredible. Sharon just finished a movie in Italy and her next project is playing the first female vice president in a TV movie called Agent X.

MEL GIBSON: NO LONGER THE SEXIEST MAN ALIVE

119109PCN_Expendablcutmel

Mel Gibson,58, has done a great job of disguising himself. He showed up in Cannes to promote his movie The Expendables 3 with this highly unattractive beard. Remember, Mel was once voted “Sexiest Man Alive” by People magazine and no one protested. His pretty face was the ticket to Mel’s success (who didn’t love Mad Max?) but now it’s totally and voluntarily covered. He’s about to start filming another move, Blood Father soon, and we bet the facial hair will be gone. He must be secretly thrilled by the Donald Sterling tape scandal, having barely survived his own tape scandal. Coincidentally, both Donald and Mel were taped by their girlfriends! At least Mel knows he’s not the only dumb guy in Hollywood.

EVA LONGORIA: “DESPERATE” FOR ATTENTION

Who does Eva Longoria think she’s kidding? She’s girlishly claiming to be embarrassed by her red carpet “wardrobe malfunction“ in Cannes and promising it “won’t happen again.” This was no accident. Eva may be subconsciously desperate for attention (why is a TV actress in Cannes, anyway?) or an exhibitionist. But she’s 38 years old and knows full well that if you wear a long gown with a long slit that not wearing underwear is just ASKING for trouble. We’re thinking she LOVED the resulting publicity – it’s a shame she couldn’t get it in a more tasteful manner.
