This year’s Cannes Film Festival will start with a bang. Woody Allen’s new film Café Society, starring Kristen Stewart and Blake Lively, will kick off the festival on May 11.
The film, set in 1930s Hollywood, also stars Jesse Eisenberg, Parker Posey, and Steve Carell. This will be the third movie made by the controversial director to open the iconic festival. In 2002 Hollywood Ending was chosen and in 2011 it was Midnight in Paris. While the romantic comedy-drama is opening Cannes, KStew’s new flick won’t be up for any prizes.
SoKo, Stewart’s French amour, told W magazine “I’m very, very, very in love and very happy in a relationship.”
She added that they didn’t meet online like other couples.
“It was very OG.”
In a funny twist, it has been reported that SoKo once went on a date with KStew’s famous ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson. In a 2015 interview with A Music Blog, Yea? she says she went on a blind date with FKA Twigs’ fiancé shortly after moving to California.
“It was the best thing ever!…Three nights in, I went out and met a girl who was like, ‘Hey, I like your music, I work for a label and we would love to sign you. Where are you staying, do you need a place to stay?’ and I was like, ‘Yeah I do.’ That same night I had a blind date with Robert Pattinson!”
Small world, huh? We’re sure KStew and SoKo had a good chuckle about it.
