Mel Gibson was shirtless this morning to have a cigarette outside his hotel room in Cannes. He's in France to promote his Jodie Foster-directed film The Beaver and threw on a shirt for this evening's premiere. Promoting the movie was a slight problem for Jodie in the wake of Mel's well-publicized domestic problems over the last year. She decided to debut it at SXSW without Mel, but it seems she and the studio wanted him involved with press before it opens in the US on May 20. She was still solo, though, for a photo op this morning.
