CLIMBING THE STEPS – Day 1. Michael Douglas, Uma Thurman and a host of unexpected guests attended the film screening Jeanne du Barrysigned Maïwenn, this Tuesday, May 16, at the Cannes Film Festival 2023.
Kick-off of the Fortnight, this Tuesday, May 16. The 2023 Cannes Film Festival has rolled out its mythical red carpet on which, each year, a shower of stars passes for the time of a screening. For the opening, it’s the team of the period film Jeanne du Barry , directed by Maïwenn, which captured all eyes. Until the end, we whispered that Johnny Depp would not come. He finally got out of an official car, behind his bodyguard and in front of hundreds of flashes of photographers, 7 p.m. Controversial in recent months after his trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard, Tim Burton’s darling took a walkabout before grabbing Maïwenn’s hand for the climb up the stairs, despite rumors of a a disagreement on the set between the director and her actor.

Before them, from 6 p.m., other stars of international cinema climbed the steps of the Palais des Festivals. Raphaël Personnaz posed in front of the photocall with Anaïs Demoustier, when Xavier Dolan or Catherine Deneuve arrived alone at the opening ceremony. Mads Mikkelsen and his wife, Helen Mirren (hair dyed blue), Elle Fanning, Emmanuelle Béart or even Uma Thurman also took the temperature of the first evening on the steps.
It is to the famous interpreter of Kill Bill, arrived on the arm of his son Levon Roan Thurman-Hawke, that returned the mission of awarding an honorary Palme d’Or to actor and producer Michael Douglas. On this occasion, the 78-year-old American climbed the steps alongside his wife, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, and their 19-year-old daughter Carys. A complicity that will not have escaped anyone.
