The Cannes Film Festival, which began on May 11, has already seen major stars such as George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Blake Lively and Kristen Stewart attend, as well as L'Oreal ambassadors Julianne Moore, Eva Longoria and Naomi Watts
"It's like the most gnarly popularity contest in the world," said Kristen Stewart, whose relationship with Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson attracted intense media attention. "You take high school and make it like in the real world - it amplifies everything, it's pretty intense," she said
The Cannes red carpet was always going to be starry for the opening of the film festival, but this year there seemed to be more celebrities on the French Riviera than in Tinseltown
Victoria Beckham, Eva Longoria, Jessica Chastain, Justin Timberlake, Julianne Moore and Naomi Watts also set cameras flashing before they sat down to enjoy Woody Allen's third film which opened the 12-day festival
"I get off the plane (at Cannes) and I'm escorted instantly to interviews. I do wall-to-wall interviews until I leave. I can do as many as 100 journalists a day," said Woody Allen
In From the Land of the Moon, set just after World War II, Marion stars as a woman caught in an unhappy marriage who falls in love again. She also stars in It's Only the End of the World by French Canadian director Xavier Dolan
Kristen was photographed in a black leather blazer, grey T-shirt and black pants. Soko wore a brown plaid coat over a white shirt, high-waist pants and sunglasses. The Twilight actress and the French singer were not shy of their amorous display
The story started out modestly enough. Kristen Stewart - an actress, despite her many other achievements, still best known for playing a teenager in love with a vampire in the Twilight franchise, was promoting a new film at the Sundance Film Festival in a video posted by Variety
"Instead of sitting around and complaining about that, do something. Go write something, go do something. And that's easy to say. Guys make more money because their movies make more money. It makes sense," said Kristen Stewart in a video interview at the Sundance Film Festival
Brie Larson, who appears in new drama Room, and Kingsman: The Secret Service actor Taron Egerton have also been nominated. They are joined by Bel Powley, from 2015's The Diary Of A Teenage Girl. Previous BAFTA winners include Tom Hardy, James MacAvoy and Kristen Stewart
"I think it all started when I stopped listening to others and I decided to take a break from the big Hollywood productions to focus on films for which I earn less but that I believe will repay me later on instead. If not financially, at least personally"
"Not all emotional issues are mental health issues. As far as we know, you have one shot at this and it can be so beautiful, so why lessen the feeling of anything? Why numb yourself? If you're overtly emotional about anything, people discredit what thought you might be contributing, because anything overtly emotional can be viewed as a weakness"
