Pfeiffer: "Armani Is My Soulmate"

3 July 2007 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Michelle Pfeiffer has hailed fashion designer Giorgio Armani as her "soulmate" - insisting he is the only one who understands her "schizophrenic personality." The Hollywood beauty met Armani while filming the 1983 hit Scarface and was stunned to hear he wanted to dress her. She explains, "I didn't know people in the movie industry did such things. I remember thinking, 'Why would I want someone to dress me - and who is Giorgio Armani' He is now my soulmate. He can adjust to my sometimes schizophrenic personality. I don't want to think about what to wear on big occasions. He saves me from being on those worst dressed lists." The Oscar-nominated Dangerous Liaisons star is next set to be seen onscreen in the film adaptation of the Broadway hit musical Hairspray. »

Frears to preside over Cannes jury

12 January 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

PARIS -- British helmer Stephen Frears has been named president of the jury for the 60th annual Festival de Cannes, set for May 16-27, organizers said Thursday.

Frears, a Golden Globe and DGA nominee this year for his indie hit The Queen, made his Cannes debut in 1987 with his Palm d'Or nominee Prick Up Your Ears. His credits since then include Dangerous Liaisons, Accidental Hero, The Grifters, The Van, The Snapper, High Fidelity and Dirty Pretty Things.

"Of course, it's an honor but it's also a treat, to be able to watch terrific films from all over the world in such heady surroundings. God Save Cannes! (as well as the Queen)," Frears said in accepting the job.

"I am particularly delighted that Stephen Frears accepted my proposal this year," Festival de Cannes President Gilles Jacob said. "We thus pay tribute to this great, inspired filmmaker, endowed with freedom of mind and love of making films. The 60th festival will henceforth take place under a Lucky Star, that of intelligence, wit and a dash of impertinence."

Last year's Cannes jury was headed by Chinese director Wong Kar-Wai. »
