canne film festival 2011


Robert Pattinson was in Paris today, June 3, 2017. Sneaky fan pic captured him having coffee at a cafe in the 11th arrondissement with French actress/director Maïwenn. The 41-year old director is a fixture at Cannes (so they may have met last week while they were both there, or they could be old friends, we have no idea). 

Given the caliber of directors Rob has chosen to work with, it would not surprise me if they were meeting to discuss a new film project. Maiwenn has appeared in several notable movies, including the horror film Haute Tension (English title: High Tension), in which she starred opposite Cécile de France. In 2006, she directed her first feature film, the semi-autobiographical Pardonnez-moi.

Her 2011 film Polisse won the Jury Prize at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. Her 2015 film Mon roi was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at the 2015 Cannes. Maiwenn is married to a French real estate developer and has two children.  Her previous relationship was with the acclaimed director, Luc Besson. .
