The film, in competition at the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival, premiered tonight (May 25th) in the south of France, drawing the likes of Julianna Margulies, Doutzen Kroes and Aishwarya Rai.
Pattinson’s bestie, Tom Sturridge and Kristen Stewart came out to support their guy, with Stewart looking fantastic in a Reem Acra pre-fall 2012 red crepe deep v neck gown with lace detail, topping with bright red lips. Did you see the back of her dress? So much like that of Duchess Catherine‘s Jenny Packham gown.
At a press conference earlier in the day, Pattinson talked about preparing to play the 28-year-old main character, a multi-billionare asset manager. Shooting began without rehearsals, which kind of stressed Pattinson out. “I spent two weeks in my hotel room worrying, and confusing myself,” he said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“What I liked about the script initially was its lyricism and just the rhythms of it,” Pattinson said, adding that it felt more like making a song than a movie, which is perfect for the musician in him. “Normally, when you do a movie, you can kind of blur the lines and make it your own,” he added, “but with this, the only thing I knew is that I didn’t want to change a single word.”
How great does Stewart look? And how friggin’ adorable is Pattinson?
