Cannes: Julia Roberts' Bare Feet, George Clooney's Trump Jab and Other Festival Headlines (So Far)

THR's Chris Gardner recounts the biggest moments to happen on the Croisette, live from Cannes.

The Cannes Film Festival is well underway, and The Hollywood Reporter has the rundown on the biggest moments to happen on the Croisette. Reporting live from Cannes, staff writer Chris Gardner recaps all of the highlights of the festival's first three days.

Jodie Foster's Money Monster, starring Julia Roberts and George Clooney, premiered on Thursday evening and was met with a four-minute standing ovation that caused both Foster and Roberts to get teary. Prior to the film's screening, Roberts, making her very first appearance at the festival, also made headlines when she opted to take off her shoes on the red carpet and walk the steps of the Palais barefoot.

Clooney shook things up at the press conference when he took aim at GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump in front of reporters.

"There's not going to be a President Donald Trump," he declared. "It's not going to happen because fear is not going to be something that drives our country."

On the style front, gowns worn by Amal Clooney, Blake Lively, Jessica Chastain, Anna Kendrick and more proved that yellow is the biggest fashion trend on the red carpet this year. And to help out with men's looks, Uber is offering delivery services for bow ties, which can be sent to your door for $97.

Money Monster isn't the only film garnering buzz at the festival: THR also caught up with Steven Spielberg, Mark Rylance and Ruby Barnhill for an exclusive interview about The BFG, premiering May 14, that can be viewed here.
