Two generations of rebellious, quality American acting were represented at Cannes photocalls this morning, with two-time Academy Award winner Sean Penn promoting his daring rock star/nazi hunter film This Must Be Place and Ryan Gosling hyping his arty thriller Drive. And, at the risk of offending fans of their mutually remarkable bodies of work (and in Ryan’s case, his remarkable body), we’re going to go out on a limb and say they both looked kinda silly. Oh sure, Sean isn’t the first actor to stroll around the sea in a faded denim outfit (hello, Antonio Banderas!). Plenty of people would be happy to let Ryan hang around them in a pajama top, white pants and wingtip shoes, especially if they got to be there when he took them off. But you don’t usually see them surrounded by paparazzi on the coast of France. We’re not hating, folks…just amused at what passes for celebrity Cannes casual wear.
