After a bout with food poisoning, Penelope Cruz emerged on Tuesday evening to attend the Cannes Film Festival premiere of Broken Embraces – but director Pedro Almodovar‘s comments about oral sex may have made her and a few others sick!
“I play all the roles on set. In a film I made a long time ago, I even performed cunnilingus on an actress to show the actor how to do it,” Pedro said.
Needless to say, the director’s film about a tragic love affair between an actress and a director was well received by the audience in the packed theater. The film is up for the coveted Palme d’Or prize, to be handed out Sunday, but Pedro said he won’t be sticking around ’till then.
Pedro said he will leave on Friday so he won’t give the impression that he is “waiting for an award.”
After the premiere, Pedro, Penelope, and other A-list guests enjoyed a seaside fete in a tented area at the end of the Le Croisette. It was transformed into a Spanish-themed space, with dark reds and greens being the dominant colors and dried flower centerpieces on the tables. Guests sipped cocktails while admiring the view of the sea and luxurious yachts. [Photo: Getty Images]
