Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem Receive Equal Pay for Their Latest Movie

Hadya NIN Lea Seydoux Cate Blanchett Ava Duvernay Kristen Stewart

The 28-year-old has always been a darling of Cannes, appearing in the main competition in "On the Road" by Walter Salles in 2012 and Olivier Assayas's "Clouds of Sils Maria" and Woody Allen's "Cafe Society" in 2014.

"They are not there due to their gender", Blanchett said at the festival's opening news conference.

'It's so refreshing to see how they separate their work from their private life, and what a deep respect they have for each other'. We got a standing ovation and after we had people talking to us about how the film touched them or how they were able to connect with the film.

A majority of women however make up the jury, including actresses Kristen Stewart and Lea Seydoux and director Ava DuVernay.

"When I was in my 20s, I thought the more I would torture myself and the more I would stay in character for months, the better the result would be".

The 71st Cannes Film Festival's director Thierry Frémaux said that the festival would improve the male-to-female ratio of the selection committee and select more films directed by women. The actress will be at the festival for three days and will walk the red carpet.

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram suspended four games
The suspension could prove even more costly if he was angling for a lucrative contract extension before the season kicked off. However, it was expected to remain a 1A/1B situation after that worked out so well previous year for the NFC South champions.


Icelandic pop singer Björk had alleged in October that Von Trier had sexually harassed her during the making of the movie "Dancer in the Dark", claims denied by the Danish film director.

The festival has set up a helpline for women who experience harassment during the event and is supporting a series of seminars about women's representation in the film industry.

On the Asian films In Competition, the jury member, Chinese actor Zhang Zhen said he has a completely open mind.

"For profound changes to occur, it needs to take place through specific actions", she stated at a press conference on Tuesday.

But she scoffed when asked whether the glitz of the festival overshadows such movements.

That said, her festival uniform apart from opening night has so far been a succession of chic but eminently practical trouser suits. "This is by its very nature a glamorous, spectacular festival. full of joie de vivre, full of good humour". The company will debut Spike Lee's new film "BlacKkKlansman" at Cannes. A reporter asked if Cannes would do the same, but Frémaux said that there were complicated matters. "One of the major reasons why the members of steering committee from the worldwide film festival of India, Goa are here, is to ensure deeper collaborations between Goa as a film festival with filmmakers across the world". The first day of the Cannes film market saw the screening of the Assamese film "Village Rockstars", which won the Best Picture prize at the National Awards presented on May 3.
