Stop what you’re doing right now. Because Colin Firth was in Cannes. Looking better than he has in a long time. Here he is being beautiful at a couple of Chopard events yesterday. Livia, his wife, is there too. Colin’s kept a relatively low profile for the last couple of years but he’s recently been confirmed to star in Woody Allen’s latest, with Emma Stone, and also in Matthew Vaughn’s The Secret Service, described as a comic book Bond.

Cannes loves Chinese cinema. It has been 13 years since Tony Leung was named Best Actor for Wong Kar-Wai’s masterpiece In The Mood For Love. This time he’s in Cannes to support his wife, Carina Lau, who’s at the festival for Bends. Here they are just after arriving in Nice today. Full Story

Zhang Ziyi showed up with short hair last night at the Palais in Cannes and I recoiled in horror. The hair. It looked like she’d chopped it, and I was all ready to write an article today, finally with photo accompaniment, about why it’s hard for Chinese girls to do the pixie because of the way it grows out spikey and straight up out our heads.

Remember in Are You There, God? It’s me, Margaret, when she’s trying on that maxi pad with a belt? For years it freaked me out that maxi pads required belts. What did Ancient Egyptians use as tampons? Do certain foods shorten your cycle? Does the moon regulate your period? Can cold water shorten your cycle? Can pineapple juice prevent pregnancy? Can stress throw off your cycle? Through their Generation Know*program, U by Kotex® is asking girls to share their experiences, get the facts, and talk about what it’s like to deal with vaginal wellness without making it feel awkward or inappropriate. Do you have any stories or myths to dispel? Do you want to know the answers to some of the questions above? Click here Full Story

Many of you have been asking whether or not Marcus Mumford was in Cannes with Carey Mulligan last night at The Great Gatsby opening. He was. If you can get past Leonardo DiCaprio, he’s sitting behind Carey in the theatre. I wonder if she made it through the entire film without leaving. She says she can’t stand watching herself. Full Story
Cannes kicks off today. The Great Gatsby photo call has already happened and people have been hard for weeks about a Baz Luhrmann production opening the festival. Already, even at the jury photo call, Granny Freeze showed up in sparkles so the dress porn tonight at the Palais will be... spectacular. Always. Here’s how Cannes isn’t like the Oscars: they’re not particularly discerning about who they let on their carpet. I’ve seen Phoebe Price on the Cannes carpet before. Several. Times.
Cannes is one of the few places in the world, maybe the only place in the world, where you might find Phoebe Price and Leonardo DiCaprio on the carpet at the same time. It’s outrageous excess, glorified cheese, and shameless star-f*ckery. God I love it. And by the end of it, even the spectators need to detox.
This year, our extensive Cannes coverage is sponsored by U by Kotex® and they’re helping us give away an amazing Festival Experience in Toronto for you and a friend. Stay at my favourite world class hotel in Toronto during the most celebrity-heavy week in the city, spend $1000 while there, enjoy a day at the spa, and more.

Justin Timberlake is now in Cannes. So f-ck everyone because it’s ALL ABOUT PIPSQUEAK. Here he is on the Croisette promoting his next film Spinning Gold, the Neil Bogart biopic that’s just been acquired by Sony for foreign rights, which is why here’s there, in part, to tap dance for foreign money.
