The annual Cannes Film Festival kicked off once again this year in France and one of our favorite actresses, Diane Kruger is be one of the jury members! She arrived on the opening red carpet wearing a beautiful Jaeger-LeCoultre vintage jewelry watch with cover. She was also seen at the jury photocall wearing a Jaeger-LeCoultre Joaillerie 101 that complemented her burgundy cocktail dress perfectly.
Everyone was excited to see her on the panel and she declares to take this role very seriously. She says “I try to be in bed before midnight.” and also mentions to say that she has been on the other side as an actress. “So I have to be extra sensitive and keep an open mind. If I had a film here I would not want my jury member to be half-asleep.” Read more about her interview with USA Today regarding the Cannes judging.
This year the Cannes Film Festival is expected to bring together over 35,000 representatives in the film industry from all over the world as well as over 4,000 journalists. This prestigious event will be the 65th anniversary and will last until May 27 and will end with the Golden Palm awards. On this 65th anniversary occasion, Marilyn Monroe has been chosen as this year’s icon of the festival.
