Cannes Film Festival

As much as I love Robert Pattinson shirtless, I have to say that I really love seeing Robert in suit, so the fact that he will most likely be at Cannes this year in support of his film Cosmopolis, tickles me to death.

With Kristen Stewart‘s film On The Road also in competition, I’m so looking forward to those duo red carpet moments!

They will be joined by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie when his New Orleans caper Killing Them Softly vies in competition.

We may even see Zac Efron and Nicole Kidman attending. She has two films in Cannes, The Paperboy (with Efron) and the thriller Stoker.

    This is so exciting. I can’t wait to see them on the red carpet and see their movies especially Cosmopolis. I’m so proud of both of them.
