Jodie Foster receives Palm of Honor

Jodie Foster, now 58, stood for the first time on the red carpet in Cannes at the age of 13. At that time she received the golden palm for her role in the film “Taxi Driver” from director Martin Scorsese (78). Now, 45 years later, the actress is receiving another award: at the opening ceremony of this year’s festival, the Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar (71) awarded her the Palm of Honor for her extraordinary career.

The nipple flash of this stranger

A visitor to the 74th Cannes Film Festival caused a real thunderstorm of flashlights when she posed for the photographers at the screening of the musical “Annette” on the red carpet. The reason for this was not her cream-colored skirt with the gold leaf pattern (also beautiful), but her loose crop top, which also rose while she put her hands on the neck. A homage to the late actress Simone Silva, who dared such a promo stunt in the 1950s? Unfortunately, we and the local press have not yet found out who the visitor is.
