They were one of the hottest casts to walk the red carpet this year in Cannes. The stars of the western crime drama Lawless gathered for a special PEOPLE shoot, right after their big moment on the steps of the Palais de Festivals on May 19.
Shot steps from the Palais at the Baoli Beach Club before their after-party, the cast includes Guy Pearce, Jason Clarke, Shia LaBeouf (who brought his mother as his date), Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hardy and Dane DeHaan.
The close-knit cast toasted each other and Chastain, a red carpet mainstay this year, who was on the cover of French magazine Gala. When Hardy held up the magazine vertically, pretending that Chastain was a centerfold, the group burst out laughing.
Festival veteran Wasikowska says, “It’s always so great here. It’s like Hollywood on overload!”
The violent film got nods from critics, with The Hollywood Reporter calling it “A gritty and suspenseful bootlegger tale based on real-life Prohibition figures,” and Variety adding, “for those with a strong stomach for onscreen violence, it will hit the spot.”
Lawless hits theaters August 29.
Golden Globe-nominated and Emmy Award-winning actor Neil Patrick Harris, who will host the 66th Annual Tony Awards June 10, will co-host the June 6 and 7 broadcasts of “Live! with Kelly.”
The morning chat show, hosted by Kelly Ripa, airs in the New York metropolitan area on ABC 7 beginning at 9 AM ET; check local listings.
The June 6 program will also feature Julianne Hough; the June 7 broadcast will include Jessica Chastain and Emili Sande.
Jessica Chastain will be at 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards presenting the award for women’s wear, together with Downton Abbey‘s Dan Stevens. The designers up for that honor, which is basically the Oscars equivalent of the Best Actor/Actress award, are Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen for The Row, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez for Proenza Schouler, and Marc Jacobs.
The annual awards gala will take place on June 4 at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, and this year should be an especially wild party since it marks the CFDA’s 50th anniversary.
The gorgeous Matt Bomer will be presenting the men’s wear, and also Johnny Depp will attend, to receive the Fashion Icon award.
Stylist Elizabeth Stewart had a big job this week—dressing Jessica Chastain for the Cannes Film Festival. “We have it down to a science,” the stylist told InStyle.com of the process at the ninth annual PS Arts fundraiser in Beverly Hills this week. “We’ve planned everything out beforehand. It’s like a military operation. We photograph everything. We send a PDF. There’s a printed and e-mailed copy. It’s pretty organized.” As for how she got her hands on so many beautiful gowns—Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander McQueen included—it’s also very methodical. “When you dress a girl like that, you have the world at your fingertips,” said Stewart. “Everybody wants to dress her.”
Well, it seems the “Madagascar” press-kit had the wrong info. Jessica confirmed herself that Mama won’t be released until next year.
We’re still waiting for new pictures… I hope they can release something for us, soon.
Check this pretty picture of Jessica while doing the Gia voice over:
Posters and promotional stills of Madagascar 3 was also added to the gallery. Enjoy!
Also on board the train are two others circus stars, Stefano, an Italian sea lion and Gia, an exotic Italian Jaguar.
Gia, a bit wary of the Zoosters at first, is won over when Alex and the gang convince them that they, too, are “circus.”
Academy Award-nominated actress Jessica Chastain brings Gia to life: “I liked playing Gia because she has a very big heart but at the same time she’s also fiercely protective of her circus family.”
She adds, “Working in animation has been a completely new experience for me. There’s something so freeing about being in front of a microphone and thinking, ‘I’m playing an Italian jaguar.’ Where in my life would I ever transform enough to play an Italian jaguar?”
