From what we can tell, David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis is not the side-splitting comedy of the summer. And yet, the photos coming out of the photocall and premiere of the film at Cannes make it seem like the fest’s funniest event yet. Maybe that’s due to star Robert Pattinson’s relentless red-carpet face-making. Or due to the fact that it was pouring at the premiere, and the celebrities in attendance, like Julianna Margulies, could do nothing but laugh at how drenched their gorgeous gowns were getting.
Other random celebs mugging for the cameras at the premiere included Cuba Gooding Jr., Bonnie Wright and Kelly Rutherford. Model Natasha Poly showed the most daring amount of skin at the event, but she had a surprising rival in the side-boob game: none other than Kristen Stewart, in a plunging red Reem Acra stunner. She arrived ahead of her boyfriend and was instead on the arm of pal (and her On the Road co-star) Tom Sturridge.
The ladies have killed the fashion at the 65th annual Cannes Film Festival. Since last week, we’ve seen plunging necklines, cocktail dresses, minis and back-baring gowns. We’ve even seen a sexy pantsuit or two. The styles are split down the middle between short dresses and full-length gowns, with a handful of ladies opting for trains that recall the looks of silver-screen sirens. Celebs like Cassie, Tessa Ia, and Isabelle Huppert chose a more leggy look,with Cassie taking the sexy route while Tessa looked more pretty and prim. On the other hand, Rita Ora chose a ’50s Hollywood all-white gown and Kelly Brook chose to shine in a body-hugging full-length dress. New Bond girl Berenice Marlohe caught our eye with her shiny gold number, too. Check out which celebs kept it short and which of the ladies chose length at Cannes.
Sunday was an especially good day for us. After that first teaser shot of Robert Pattinson on the Cosmopolis set, more pictures of his clean-shaven hotness on the Toronto set have emerged and we thought it prudent to share. We’re literally flapping our hands at how handsome he looks. This is YSL advert-worthy! Rob, who plays Eric Packer is married to Sarah Gadon‘s character Elise, seems to function solely in sharp suits. Catch us complaining? HELL no. Rob dressed in a slick suit is something we could get used to.
What what especially love about these pictures is that some of them have been shot while he’s shooting scenes, as well as one’s off camera — so we have the whole RPattz spectrum here. Sexy Rob, Smoldering Rob, Happy Rob, Goofy Rob, Wary Rob, Contemplative Rob, Rob on a mission, Rob eating breakfast (oh, to be that cutlet) … it’s all there in our gallery. You’re welcome!
Caitlin Cronenberg is the most popular gal on Twitter today. The photographer — and daughter of director David Cronenberg — tweeted this picture of Robert Pattinson and Sarah Gadon as Eric Parker and his wife Elise in Cosmpolis. The movie went into production in Toronto this week and already we’re like “ASDFGHJKL” with excitement over it. It’s a sexual and suspenseful tale, and if Rob’s clean shaven jaw is any indicator, we’re going to be in for a wild ride. Can’t. Wait. We’ve seen a lot of comments about the pic on Twitter today, specifically about Rob’s hair. Tell us — is he doing it for you in this photo?
Talk about a big break. In the past few hours Sarah Gadon has gone from “who?” to “you know, the girl playing Robert Pattinson‘s estranged wife in Cosmopolis.” Not only is it every actor’s dream to be cast alongside the hottest living human – it’s every person with a libido’s dream. Lucky! The movie details 24 hours in the life of billionaire businessman Eric Packer, played by Pattinson, in which he rides around in a limousine, nails a lot of women, and tries to outwit men who are after him after he scams his clients out of their savings. Did we mention he has a lot of sex?
Gadon may be a relative unknown, but she’s been acting for years. A native of Canada, the almost 24-year-old has appeared on such shows there as Being Erica and The Border and done voice-over work for cartoons. Perhaps her best known work to date is in Are You Afraid of the Dark?, a Canadian show which aired on Nickelodeon, beloved by every kid alive in the 90s. She’s also previously worked with Cosmopolis director David Cronenberg on the film A Dangerous Method. We’re into Sarah solely because she had a role in Charlie Bartlett and was in a movie about the Manson family. Dark and dark!
Clearly Sarah has the resume to play the part, but will she be able to handle all the gossip, rumors and fans that comes along with working with Rob? As much as we’d like to think the insanity surrounding him will subside after Breaking Dawn (clearly, he is hoping for this too), we doubt that will happen – especially when he keeps making movies with so many hot sex scenes (hello…Remember Me, Bel Ami, Water for Elephants). Have we mentioned the sex yet? Have we? We have? Oops.
