Penélope Cruz discreetly attended the Cannes Film Festival this year. She was mostly in support of boyfriend Javier Bardem who’s new film Biutiful was premiering. She attended the film’s screening by slipping in a secret entrance and not walking the red carpet but was spooted inside with Javier and later photographed exiting. And yesterday she attended the Palme d’Or Award Ceremony which closes the festival.
On the 9th day, May 20th, she also helped raise $333,000 for the earthquake-stricken nation of Haiti by auctioning off her designer dresses which aide the Jenkins-Penn Haitian relief organization. The Spanish actress stepped out in a gorgeous red wrap dress and silver shoes to mark the occasion. One celeb that really came up trump for the auction was Pe’s good friend, Salma Hayek who donated the first ever Gucci Couture dress, which she wore to day one of the Cannes film festival.
Although there is a good bit of paparazzi candids of her from Cannes, I obviously will not be posting these more intrusive ones as Penélope tried very hard at not being photographed so I wish to respect her privacy. I did however add a couple of shots I felt were okay.
Pe has now left France and is back in Madrid.
