Catherine Deneuve is 67 years old and while it’s clear she’s had a face lift (which she admits to) or three she doesn’t look completely plastic, unnaturally waxy or puffed up. It’s amazing how great she looks, especially when you consider that she still smokes like a chimney. The legendary French actress even lit up during a photocall for her film Les Bien-Amies (The Beloved) in Cannes.
This looks trashy to my American eyes, but I used to live right next to France and I realize that those bitches smoke much more than we do. It’s culturally acceptable to smoke there and in Europe in general, although I wish for the sake of people’s health that all countries were as intolerant of as the US. That’s about all I’ll say on that topic. Catherine wants you to know that’s she not about to hide her habit and that she’ll smoke during a photocall if she pleases. At least she didn’t smoke at the premiere. Oh wait I’m wrong. (I really wrote that before I realized I was wrong.)
I’m not really familiar with the rest of the actors in this movie, although I googled this chick in the doily dress, Ludivine Sagnier, and I saw that bizarre movie Swimming Pool in 2003 and she was the naked girl in that. From what I can find she’s not pregnant at this point so there’s really no excuse for that dress.
Chiara Mastroianni, the woman with the dark hair below, is Catherine Denueve’s 39 year-old daughter, can you believe it? She looks like Katie Holmes’ long lost sister. There’s something awkward about her, just like Katie too. Maybe it’s the t-shirt paired with a pencil skirt.
