As soon as we heard Protagonist Pictures was taking Bel Ami to Cannes, we knew there was a chance Rob could be making an appearance on the "Croisette." But after getting a twitter update from @Lilie06 who is there right now, that option is looking less and less likely:
"I dont know if we can take that as an "official news" but KST (Kristin Scott Thomas) was on "Le grand journal" 2night (same show Rob did last year), they talked just few sec bout BA & showed an extract of the craziness last year for Rob but didnt mention AT ALL that he'll be at C. this year. So its not really "official" but i think he wont B there! But who knows? mayB he'll show up at the last minute."
Rob captured the world's attention at Cannes last year, along the lines of well known A-listers like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. All we can say is he looked like a knight in shining armor, dazzling crowds as he stepped in and out of events. He was in fact so highly sought, his kisses went for $20,000 during a benefit auction.
Thousands drooled and swooned over dozens of pictures of a smiling Rob in a tux, wearing his Ray-Bans and sporting that oh, soo entrancing smile. Hell, he even made a polo shirt look hot!
With Rob taping Ellen on Tuesday, and starting to film Water For Elephants later next week, we knew it would be a long shot for him to show up at Cannes. We'll keep you posted if anything changes. For now all we can do, is look forward to next year!
