Robin Hood Russell Crowe and Maid Marion Cate Blanchett launched the 63rd Annual Cannes Film Festival today. They’re among the first stars to arrive in the southern France idyll. And while their movie is being screened outside of the competition, meaning it won’t be eligible for awards, other celebrity moms and dads will be vying for the prizes. Details below. Plus a photo of Russell and a pic of one of my favorite actress moms…who just happens to be on this year’s prize jury.
Yup, below Russell is Kate Beckinsale, with fellow juror Benico Del Toro sneaking into the frame! Amongst the movies Kate will be judging? Doug Liman’s Fair Game, starring Naomi Watts as outed CIA officer Valerie Plame. Her co-star is another celebrity parent, Sean Penn.
