Earlier today, Helen Mirren has arrived at the 69th Annual Cannes Film Festival. According to her interview on Lorraine, she was invited by L’Oreal and will represent the brand alongside other international faces of the cosmetic giant. Of course, Helen is no stranger to the festival, having won their Best Actress prize twice, in 1984 for “Cal” and in 1994 for “The Madness of King George”. Today, she has attended the premiere of “La Fille Inconnue”. I’m sure there’s more to come these next days, so check back soon.
