@Cannes: Poor Robin Wright (Penn)

@Cannes: Poor Robin Wright (Penn)

Robin Wright Penn is on the Cannes jury this year, which is surely an exhausting and lengthy process. True, you spend a week in the South of France and probably attend all the best dinners and parties. But, you also have the hefty job of watching a dozen or so heavy films, and your decision is arguably the most important film festival decision any jury can make. You also must contend with the paparazzi and press every single day for the duration of the fest. Sounds like a fun gig, but what happens when your marital trouble is making headlines back home? As Cannes began, there was news breaking that Robin Wright Penn and her husband (and recent Cannes jury president) Sean Penn were splitting up. Now, news is that the marriage is back on. Hopefully, this remains the case. Regardless, it can’t be ideal to have the media of the world in your face while all of this is happening.
