Adrien Brody parties in Cannes with his girlfriend Lara Lieto: try-hard or cute?


The only time we really talk about Adrien Brody is when he shows up at random film festivals to party and get pap’d. So here we are again. Would you have thought that this is where Adrien’s career would be after he won the Best Actor Oscar? Adrien might be a cautionary tale for actors – don’t squander the award cache. Adrien is in Cannes with his still-girlfriend Lara Lieto. They’ve been together for several years now, and I guess we’re still describing her as a “model.” Also: nice stone-washed jeans on Brody.

Adrien actually did have a “purpose” for coming to Cannes this year, and his reasoning was surprisingly Lohan-esque. I know, that’s harsh. But he came to Cannes to announce a new project, Emperor, and probably to see if he could generate some buzz/financing for it before they filmed it. Brody also came to town to announce a new (sketchy-sounding) partnership with some Chinese financing. He’s calling the production company Fable House LTD. You can read more about it here – it sounds like Deadline thinks this is something shady. Or maybe I’m just wary of Chinese financing for English-language films, made specifically for the Asian market. But I guess that’s the new normal? Lots of people are doing that now.

Anyway, I guess the point is that we’re paying attention to Adrien.

    What happene to his career ?

    • Rice says:

      That’s an excellent question. Loved him in The Pianist! Then he made King Kong….. Actually, those are the only movies I’ve seen him in. Maybe he should try HBO or some other TV avenue, like Halle Berry.

      • Chem says:

        Halle is going to TV but she actually has an ok film career. Especially when you factor in her gender, her age, and her race. Shes clearly made a career choice not to settle for the wife/mother roles too (And good for her for choosing that. I hate it when an actress is reduced to playing a mere plot device for a dude). And she most certainly wont be playing the mamie roles that are reserved for black middle aged actresses, thankfully. This shift to TV is not a Sharon Stone-esque move, informed by a complete lack of options. The options are there, they just happen to offensive or uninspiring.

      He just did Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. !?!

    I loved Darjeeling Limited. He was so great in it. I wonder why he doesn’t do more Wes Anderson movies.

  3. Lindy79 says:

    There’s no castles, bathtubs or trips to poor African children in Hello magazine so it’s still not the worst thing he’s done for a woman.

  4. LAK says:

    Well, at least he is working.

  5. heidi says:

    She has great, shapely legs

    I’ve always liked Brody as an actor. He was in Sydney earlier this year. I was walking to the museum I volunteer at and there was a whole bunch of film production equipment in the main quad and there he was. He is quite a bit taller than I expected. Walked right past him. I recently saw Grand Budapest Hotel and loved it. You could tell Ralph Finnes loved playing his role every moment

  7. AG-UK says:

    I still like him but gf needs a trim too long. He had the Oscar curse was amazing then I don’t know what happened.

  8. Godwina says:

    Yes I would. Still. In a heartbeat.

  9. Mouse says:

    She looks like Elsa Pataky in the face.

  10. lucy2 says:

    Maybe now we know who’s face Bieber and Jaden Smith are always trying to copy?

    Something about him kind of bugs me, but I do like him in Wes Anderson movies.

  11. TheOriginalKitten says:

    He’s effin sexy. I’m usually not a fan of…prominent noses but he just does it for me.

  12. Eve says:

    He’s one of the best actors out there…it’s a shame he doesn’t get (more) work. Never heard or read a single bad thing about him on set.

  13. Dani says:

    Looks like he’s walking with his freaking daughter. I can’t.

  14. Michi says:

    Has anyone seen ‘Detachment’? It’s a fantastic film, and Adrien is spell-binding in it.

    And I so would – all day long, for the rest of my life. Yum.

  15. ella says:

    He looks kind of worn out in these photos, IMO. And something is not right with those jeans. But I love him anyway, questionable taste in women ‘n’ all.

    Adrien Brody also played Salvador Dali in “Midnight in Paris.” He did a great job — as soon as he appeared I knew he was Dali. Brody’s also played major roles in “Summer of Sam,” “Hollywoodland” and “The Village” as well. King Kong made over $550M worldwide and he’s done a number of high profile commercials. He’s been working steadily, since he became the youngest man to win Best Actor at 29. He’s 41 now. I think the issue is that none of his movies or roles in the past decade have been Oscar material. The fact that he’s not matinee idol handsome — but more distinguished looking should help him to keep getting roles well into his 50s and 60s.

    Sad that nowadays I associate him mostly with a Stella Artois beer ad. He does have talent, and even if his eyebrows annoy the hell out of me (he can’t help having them like that) he does kind of have that charming, suave thing going on. …a bit try hard though.

    He is my celebrity crush forever, and I think he is an exquisite actor. I watched almost all his movies. He needs to get back on the radar with some great projects. I miss him so much!!
