Some things are simply not done at the Cannes Film Festival, my friends. One, no selfies (tres lame), two, no ketchup on fries (why are you eating fries in couture anyway?) and three, you walk a red carpet with your film’s cast–no one else. Not even Blake Lively.
But, Ryan Reynolds has always been a rebel, now hasn’t he? B sat down with Vogue UK to dish on her three appearances at Cannes and revealed that Ry once broke a may-jah film fest rule just to escort his lady love in style.
“It’s neat, because I’ve had three very different experiences on the Cannes red carpet,” she said. “As a L’Oréal ambassador it’s really about celebrating the glamour of Cannes, and it feels cinematic and like a fashion and beauty moment. They clear the carpet, which is unique – you never have another red carpet where it’s just the one person standing there. It’s actually incredibly intimidating!”
“Then I’ve been there with my husband two years ago, which was so special. He actually broke a Cannes rule, and snuck away from the rest of his cast and came back and picked me up so we got to walk the red carpet together. To be there at Cannes with him, thinking: ‘Wow he has a film at the Cannes Film Festival – what a big deal’ was so special,” she gushed. “And then this year I had a film there myself, and standing there alongside Kristen and Jesse and Corey and Woody and presenting this film we all made together… it’s a very full-circle moment.”
Aw, Ryan, ever the gent–risking his rep to revel in his wife’s gorgeousness! If that isn’t true love–and a killer photo op–I don’t know what is. And really, who would have minded that these two beauties strutted down the step and repeat a deux?
