Best bargain

There is no such thing as a bargain in Cannes!

Favorite meal in Cannes?

There are so many great places to eat in Cannes, but my favorite is La Passager at the Belles Rives hotel in Juan-Les-Pins.

Most overrated restaurant?

Anywhere I can’t get a reservation!

Best place to have a drink after 3am?

You really can’t do better!

Place to avoid during the festival?

Every meeting on a yacht!

Your “only in Cannes” moment

Walking the red carpet with Iggy Pop and Jim Jarmusch for the screening of Give me danger was a very special moment.

Biggest pet peeve?

I leave my credential at the hotel only to realize I’ve been turned away from a screening having queued for 45 minutes!

Cannes guilty pleasure?

It must go to bed before midnight!

Weirdest request you’ve ever received in Cannes?

Someone asked for my autograph on the Croissette, crazy!

Most interesting celebrity encounter?

There have been many, but I’m too discreet to say.

Is there one thing you won’t travel without, besides your phone?

Other than my credit card, I don’t need much more!

What is your attitude towards timing/reporting of standing ovations at premieres?

The longer the better, keep it up!
