Aishwarya Rai: Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony!

Aishwarya Rai walks the red carpet at the opening ceremony of the 64th Cannes Film Festival held at Palais des Festivals on Wednesday (May 11) in Cannes, France.

The 37-year-old Bollywood actress recently signed on to play the lead role in director Madhur Bhandarkar‘s film Heroine.

A formal announcement about the casting news is expected to be made at the festival.

Aishwarya replaces Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor, who dropped out of the film due to unhappiness with the script.

FYI: Aishwarya is carrying a Jimmy Choo clutch and wearing Chopard jewelry.

    I am baffled as to why so many people think she is “gorgeous.”
    I saw an interview with her years ago that followed her around as she went about her day shopping, etc.
    She was vapid and obnoxiously narcissistic.

  • aly

    Elegant and beautiful

  • kiki

    she pretty but so annoying and conceited in interviews. watch her interview on letterman you’ll know what i mean. she is pretty though

  • d.ndnd

    shes gained weight… still looks kinda hot though

  • Harry

    man weight gain made her look older, ugh. But she is beautiful and thats coming from someone who is not even into this type of middle eastern look.

  • LOL

    beautiful woman

  • Vishal

    She’s still one of the most beautiful women in the world. Glad her body is feminine like a woman and not like a stick thin model. She comes across as sweet and humble in interviews. Unfortunately a lot of people are jealous of her success, fame, beauty, talent and hence write frustrated comments like some of the above ones. I’m glad I admit the truth and don’t make up stories to make a nice person look bad.

  • Che

    wow she’s already 38? I had no idea..the most I would give her is 32. She is beautiful and classy nonetheless.

  • d.ndnd


    she put letterman in his place IMO….
    he was being cocky by indirectly insulting her culture…

  • Mia

    She’s definitely pregnant.

  • TT

    The most beautiful woman in the world. And she definitely looks younger than 37.

  • TT

    Look at this picture:
    That’s not just weight gain. It’s a baby bump. :)

  • questions

    lose weight fat ass
    i also hate how one eyebrow is always raised
    she smells like curry

  • Sihaam

    Geeeese why do Indian people try to shave this lady down our throat. We get it you only have one beautiful woman in all of India. We get it she is beautiful, stunning, and has a gorgeous eyes. But she is not the most beautiful woman in the whole wide world. Get over it. There are other amazing looking women attending the Cannes film festival look beyond your azz:)

    In a good note that dress is made for her body she looks magnificent regardless of her weight gain!!!

  • lovelydee

    She is very beautiful.

  • Anna

    She has a round face and coloured contacts. She’s also light-skinned which makes her something of a beauty in Indian culture. She is extremely average looking and lacks charisma. As she gets older, her face gets rounder and less pretty. Without a good personality, it doesn’t bode well for her aging.

    Resta fermo, nascosto dietro il masso, mi han detto

    I really enjoy looking through on this site, it has superb blog posts

    I’m very lucky to get this information from you

    Awesome, so cute! Love the use of light in these images.

    this is very good.I like it .

    thank you very much.

    This is very interesting. I actually enjoy your writing style and your word choice more than anything Smile

    I love it .thank you.

    Listened to the new show today

    thank you for the informative post and keep up the good work

    I was totally wrong about this issue. I figure that one learns something new everyday. Mrs Right learned her lesson! Nice, informative website by the way.

  • Hitler

    What is your problem..The way Letterman asked the question the same way she repilied…Good Job Ashwaryaia

  • LadyB

    Looks like she is pregnant. Hope she is.

  • sonia

    I hate the hype around her,dude
    she can’t act,she got her place here by using people,mostly men(Salman,Vivek,Abhi).Man looks takes u places
    There are far better actors in Bollywood who are far more beautiful
    just search Bipasha Basu,Kareena Kapoor,Priyanka Chopra
    Anushka Sharma
    Her try at hollywood failed badly w/duds,shes pretty but not that much
    only thing she has is eyes,Bollywood has already forgotten about her
    Shes aging very fast,if she was a good person maybe there would be something but she is so arrogant,like crazy and fake.Sushmita Sen is far better then her,no wonder she beat her in Miss India and won Miss Universe,she stood by her promise to,to adopt orphans,while Aish here promised to build a skl for kids,where is that??

  • um

    She’s not Middle Eastern. She’s from India which is in Asia

  • mike

    she’s one of the most beautiful women in the world.

  • Rani

    Inner beauty counts more then outer beauty
    She has no inner beauty,she is quite pretty on the outside,but not that much.Its not right to call her the most beautiful women in the world,one because beauty lies in the beholder also we have not seen every single women in the world to declare that.Her make up here is very bad.
    I have no right to say on her personality but from what Ive seen in her interviews,she doesn’t seem to nice.As for Heroine,well she can’t act,she is good in some roles,but just fit to be a model like Megan Fox.from what I hear of Heroine,the character is very demanding,Aishwarya can’t fit it,Kareena is 10x better actresses,if not her they should have chosen Priyanka chopra. I must say,from my point of view Ive seen prettier people in India even Bollywood.Even today I admire and adore Sushmita Sen,not only for her exotic beauty but for her dashing and bold personality,she is so intelligent far more then Aishwarya,also Sushmita devotes so much time to charity and kids,its lovely.Just my opinion

  • ana nicole

    she is gorgeous!

  • G

    One of the overrated and most hyped woman , thank to her PR agency to boost her “popularity”
    She is an embarrassment to India !
    No Personality and Fake smile and irritating giggles !!!
    Please boycott any news that comes with her name. There are more deserving people in Hindi Cinema who could do a better job than this Plastic doll !!!

  • Alan

    Absolutely stunning!

  • Lena

    I really hope she’s pregnant too! It would be a shame to waste her DNA. Abhishek is quite handsome and they just seem like they would make wonderful parents.

    I watched that Letterman interview too – and he went in there being a turd. He is a comedian who was no doubt gonna look for a way to make fun of something and she was right to have acted the way she did.

    Watch the Oprah ones too – dont judge on one interview.

    And no ones stuffing her down anyone’s throat – She is the face of Bollywood outside of India, whether you like it or not – deal with it – and dont click on the article if you dont wanna read about it. Simple as that.

    It’s also not fair to hate her because of the “most beautiful in the world title” . She didn’t go around introducing herself as such – Julia Roberts gave it to her and it just spread – how is that her fault. I think Rani Mukherji and Deepika Padukone are just, if not, more beautiful – but im not gonna hate Aishwarya because of it. That’s just my view on what beauty is – It’s an opinion.

  • Jaillian

    I lv da way u act.U beautiful an nyc build.My husband lyks u so dat he even says u r his wife.

  • janith

    i think she’s fine .but she gained weight a lot.but if u guys have seen her in her movies like devdas dilk rishta an some other few u’ll see how beautiful waman was she

  • http://justjared sarah

    A very beautiful elegant lady.

  • Adora Adams

    I would say despite her arrogance she is quite beautiful and a talented dancer. She was good in Devdas. She is NOT the most beautiful women the world.

  • An

  • http://ranwari Rafay

    well… let’s just say, she is beautiful…. personality only matters to those who are close.. cheers.

  • Anil

    She made in big in Bollywood because she looks like an Afghani/Persian woman and not Indian. Indian society worships fair skinned women only and skin bleaching is a billion dollar enterprise in that country.

  • Rocky

    One word: GORGEOUS!

  • Mimi

    You think THIS woman is average looking??? You’re crazy, like seriously mad.

  • Julia

    ^ Jealous girls always hate on her. LOL.

    But she is deserves all the attention.

    She is a world class beauty! Wow!

  • JT

    At the Oscars she was also a 10!

  • Lindsey

    She is a breathtaking beauty. No argument.

  • John

    SHE IS HOT AS HELL and worth the hype.

    Insecure girls need to admit it and get a life!

  • Zz

    She and Angelina are the most beautiful women on the planet.

  • me

    Wow, what happened to her face? She used to look so beautiful and now looks nothing but ordinary.

  • phoebe

    the dress makes her look fat,arms need toning a lot
    she looks really good but not breathtaking in this outfit.eye make up could have been better too

  • natacha

    SHE CAN’T ACT ?????????????? you are talking nonsense!! Have you watch DEVDAS, TAAL, HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM????
    (of course there are many other beautiful movies with her!) but PLEASE watch at least one of these movies, think about it and come back on this website to write something intelligent !

    okay she can be posh or see as ‘ a cold person’ but she is definitly an actree !

    ps: If you did watch one of her movies and still think she doesnt have talent … I feel very sorry for you

  • To the Uglypeople who hate ash

    What i know hat you people are RACIST.RACIST.RACIST.I do not see you ppl commenting on ANGELINA JOLIE.Your white goddess ANGELINA JOLIE IS A MIXTURE of 4 kind of races.All those white beauties are mixture. I got the evidence. What a sick and ugly ppl you. It is better you keep your opinion to yourself. I am not only saying the white ppl also including middle eastern. For example, haifa wehbe got plastic surgery. Nancy ajram is a ethic arab mixture.The interesting fact is that some of the middle eastern Arab actresses are CHRISTIAN. The funny things here is that some of the muslim arab celeb does not use their hijab (حجاب). The arab world is a replicate of hollywood but in a more polite way. I AM A PROUD INDIAN DESPITE THAT I AM NOT AN INDIAN NATIONALITY.I DO NOT LIVE IN ANY WESTERN COUNTRY. I live in any region that are heavily influences by indian culture but they forgetten it already. You jeolous ppl will die actually, i hope that God will cut your tongue for saying bad things against ash .
