Cannes 2006.8: Pedro, Penelope, Paparazzi

Cannes 2006.8: Pedro, Penelope, Paparazzi

I took this picture almost as much to show the photogs, as I did the stars. Apparently, they were simply walking back from dinner, guided down the street by Sony Pictures Classics’ Dylan Leiner. One friend joked that Almodovar was perhaps campaigning for his film to win the coveted Palm D’or this weekend. Volver was the front-runner all week, until Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s Babel premiered to raves on Tuesday, and will give it some competition.
