French actress Audrey Tautou to host Cannes opening and closing ceremonies!

Audrey Tautou has been chosen to host the opening ceremony at Cannes Film Festival this year.

It has been announced this week that French actress Audrey Tautou, best known for the 2001 film "Amelie", will host the opening and closing ceremonies of the Cannes Film Festival next month.

The opening ceremony of the 66th Cannes Film Festival will take place on May 15 with the closing ceremony on May 26. Director Steven Spielberg has already been announced as the head of the festival jury.

An adaptation of the Francois Mauriac novel "Therese Desqueyroux", in which Tautou starred, closed the festival last year. Claire from Attika bumped into her in Nice Old Town a few months ago and she can confirm that she’s as beautiful in real life as on film!
