The Australian actress, who is the jury chairman at the 10-day movie spectacular, helped to kick off the 71st Cannes, and turned heads with her decision to dig out a dress she'd worn before.

With the sexism and abuse debate roiling the global film industry and drawing the spotlight at Cannes this year, Cruz and Bardem were asked if they were paid equally for the film.

The most political Cannes film festival in years opened Tuesday with female stars vowing to protest on the red carpet against industry sexism, two top directors barred from attending and bans hanging over some movies.

'But I have realised that it's not really related to that, and that I have a life and then I have my job. However, according to the Blanchett's opening day speech, she promised that Cannes most definitely is addressing the equality issues and is seeking to address the topic of gender imbalance. Because of our unity and solidarity, we feel the ability to manifest change.

The location may have dramatically changed but the themes are strikingly familiar in the latest film from Oscar-winning Iranian director Asghar Farhadi (A Separation, The Salesman).

He said of summer-league play: "Whatever will help me get better this year, that is all I am looking forward to". Next season, they'll most likely make changes to their lineup given the amount of cap space they have available.

"It's a very unusual feeling for me to be able to be here but not him". Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, who faces a string of sexual abuse allegations from actresses inspired to come forward by Me Too Movement, is accused of four separate incidences of sexual abuse in Cannes alone.

"I am very excited about the work I am doing right now, I am very excited about the people with who I am working".

"As far as I know, no one from Kazakhstan had previously entered the shortlist of Cinéfondation", Alshanova said shortly after her film was chosen by the organizers of the festival. I continue to hope he will be able to come. "I think it has a lot to do with power, it is not only limited to the film business". "What's important for him is not to catch a plane, but to see how spectators view his film, how they'll react".

"It's wonderful that he has continued his work in such adversity", Farhadi told reporters. He wound up his Wednesday morning press conference by saying, "I find it hard to live with the fact that Panahi will not be in Cannes". It's a very unusual feeling to be able to be here, whereas he can not be here.
