Emily Blunt Speaks Out About Rumors That Cannes Requires Women to Wear Heels

Emily Blunt poses for a photo with Josh Brolin at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival photo call for their film Sicario on Tuesday (May 19) in Cannes, France.

The 32-year-old actress and 47-year-old actor were joined by their co-star Benicio Del Toro.

Emily was asked about the rumors that the Cannes Film Festival is requiring women to wear high-heeled shoes to events.

“Ya, that’s very disappointing. To think there are these waves of equality and waves of people discovering that women are so fascinating and interesting to watch and bankable (on screen),” Emily said of the situation. “Everyone should wear flats to be honest. We shouldn’t be wearing high heels anyways. That’s my point of view. I just prefer wearing Converse sneakers.”

FYI: Emily is wearing a Peter Pilotto dress, Jimmy Choo shoes, and Jacquie Aiche jewels.

    she should F off it’s standard procedure to wear heels under a ballgown unless some medical reason prevents it or your husband is shorter than you and even though she’s 5 ft 7 in she would still look awkward in flats under a ballgown

    shut up Emily. if you’re such a feminist, you should have just worn flats and said the hell with them. you’re just another actress who is a slave to fashion and wears whatever your stylist tells you to wear. you can even dress yourself.

    Perhaps you need some context. I watched the press conference and she was just told about the controversy so she just chimed in with her opinion. You sound so angry and for what reason? Grow up.

  • lshelton22

    Take your meds. She had just been told about it herself.

  • lshelton22

    YOU should eff off.

    What do you need to eat to lose the weight rapidly? From low-carb, to low-fat, to sugar-free, to high protein, and even the ‘caveman’ diet – there are so many options out there that it can be extremely confusing to the average person on which diet you should use to quickly lose weight. Some of these diets even provide conflicting information on what you should and shouldn’t eat. Well, that’s all about to change. Thanks to the report that helped me.
