My bad. Toto20 posted a Hollywood Reporter link and thought it was saying that Natalie would be attending, but I noticed that the article just mentioned that Natalie was a past attendee to the amfAR benefit.
A few days later Toto posted another link along with a translation. The translation made it sound like Natalie would attend this year, but given the lack of activity I checked the article again. What I saw was a reference to that Hollywood Reporter article, so I think it’s very likely that it was just a translation snafu and that Natalie will not be attending Cannes this year.
Next year with Malick? Bank on it!*
