Jude Law Kicks Off Cannes Film Festival

Jude Law opens the 60th Cannes Film Festival Wednesday with the New York-California road trip tale directed by Wong Kar Wai. This film will mark the acting debut of Norah Jones. Co-stars Natalie Portman and Rachel Weisz did not make it to the kick-off.

“I remember the first take we did, my voice was really [squeaks] high,” Norah told The Associated Press. “I was just terribly nervous, and Kar-wai came over and patted me on the back and I relaxed a little.”

Kar-Wai was impressed with Norah‘s acting abilities: “We rolled the camera and she cried, and after that I said, ‘well, it’s great,’ and she said, ‘do you want one more?’”

Other pictures include Jude standing on the balcony of Hotel Martinez in Cannes…

  • NatalieZc

    Natalie and Rachel didn’t attend. T_T

  • Frenchy

    I can’t wait to see Norah Jones on the screen. She’s such a talent musically and she’s lovely. As she gets older her Indian side is coming through more and more. I hope she did well with her screen debut.

    Jude looks tired.

  • NatalieZc

    Wow Jude!! looking gorgeous…

  • Ria

    How short is Norah Jones? She’s wearing heels and she barely comes up to jude’s shoulders?

    I think only Jude and Norah was asked to open the press screenings so Rachel and Natalie might be on the red carpet on the movie’s premiere night.

    Looking good Jude!

  • Sandy

    Not that Jude ever takes really bad pictures but some of these are breathtaking -
    yes Noral appears very short and I think I understand why the sunglasses. Jude has allergies and it seems to be a bad season worldwide – it wasn’t for the affect,
    he really needed them and that’s why at the end they went back on. Jared you are
    the very best – we all must remember if it’s poossible you will do it for us so a
    great big Thankyou for this one – i just have this wonderful feeling about what this whole day will bring and i cannot wait till the screenings tonight.

  • lie na

    well based on those pics i think jude looks very tired. kind of missing sumthing. dun kno why

    this movie is one of my top this year, looking froward to see it. great director and cast.

  • Ariana

    Natalie and Rachel are supposed to attend the official premeire tonight.

    Word is that everyone did very well in the movie- especially the three females. The film’s reception was positive.

    Norah looks beautiful in her dress and I hope Wong and Jude guided her through the Cannes process.

  • Our world is coming to an end…

    Jude is overrated…I am curious to see what Norah Jones worth as an actress..Why is Natalie Portman absent?

  • Molly

    The critics so far are mediocre, The Guardian gave it only 2 stars out of 5. Its called shallow…does not sound very promising….

  • Laura

    I must say I love you Jared.
    these photos are lovely.

  • Pole

    He looks great – I hate the pointed shoes though :0

  • dolorescraeg

    jared,
    what a bonanza…for jude’s fans this is a windfall. he doesn’t have to laugh or have a big grin on his face with each photo….he just has to be….the camera catches the beauty. thank you so much my friend for giving us so much jude. good luck with the film.

  • Jayne

    I used to find Jude really attractive but he hasnt aged well at all

  • http://www.justjared.com cook

    His clothes always seem too small. Hire a tailor Jude. Lose the Beatle’s shoes.

  • Daphne

    He is adorable though he does not look happy. It’s as though he has something on his mind.

    Thanks Jared, as always.

  • dulcemyrita

    Well, maybe he’s not the happyest man in the world if you look at that pics, but I’d rather say that he’s got the kind of serenity that lead you to a good state of mind….
    Clothes are too tigh and it’s true that the pointed toes are terrible, but as Dolores said, he does not have to smile all the time to see the beauty on him. I really LOVE the waistcoat, and for sure he get over being metrosexual or whatever, since his hairy chest drop round his (simple) white T–Sirt… Jared, you rock….Delicious Jude.

  • Clar”

    Jude Law a Cannes ! =) Dans mon pays . Ce soir il passe dans le grand journal sur CANAL+ a 19h10 .

  • dulcemyrita

    I take back my previous words: shoes are lovely, I didn’t remark they were on bright patern leather, they are the perfect complement…..Poor, his eyes seems to be terribly affected by alergy….

  • Purple Worm

    who’s the chick on the balcony with him? they look pretty tight.

  • dolorescraeg

    she doespublic relation for the festival and picture.

  • Purple Worm

    m’kay, thanks for that.

  • patzin

    I love the way Jude layers his clothing; he mixes formal and informal in such a unique way. Most people couldn’t carry that off, in my opinion. I didn’t notice him looking tired; however the demands for this type of event must be high.
