The Cannes Film Festival is coming to a close on Sunday, but the South of France has been flooded with stars since it kicked off last Wednesday. Jeremy Renner joined his costar Marion Cotillard and their director James Gray at the photocall for The Immigrant this afternoon ahead of the premiere, while Uma Thurman smiled as she boarded a yacht before the red carpet. Yesterday, Heidi Klum took the stage with Kenneth Cole at the annual amfAR gala, and Leonardo DiCaprio and Baz Luhrmann were among the first to arrive in Cannes, since The Great Gatsby opened the international film extravaganza this year. Over the past two weeks, other stars like Matt Damon, Milla Jovovich, Justin Timberlake, and Alec Baldwin have also been getting in on the Cannes fun.

Nina Ricci-clad Carey Mulligan wielded an umbrella to premiere The Great Gatsby in rainy Sydney today. She had the help of costars Tobey Maguire and Joel Edgerton and director Baz Luhrmann to debut the film Down Under while Joel Madden, who is currently a judge on the Oz version of The Voice, was also in attendance. Last night wasn't the first time the Gatsby crew donned umbrellas as accessories since their Cannes premiere last week got rained on as well.
Mr. Gatsby himself, Leonardo DiCaprio, didn't make it to the latest press stop since he's still in Cannes unwinding. After wrapping his work duties, he let loose flirting in a Cannes nightclub over the weekend and later hit the water to take part in the yacht scene. Isla Fisher also missed out on the premiere in her native Australia since she debuted her other project Now You See Me in NYC last night.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire share the big screen as pals Jay Gatsby and Nick Carraway in The Great Gatsby, which hit theaters last week and premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday, but their real-life relationship started long ago. Leo and Tobey have been friends for 25 years, after meeting at an audition in the late '80s.
Leo Recalls Their First Meeting Fondly
"After I met Tobey at an audition, I felt like I wanted this guy to be my friend. I remember driving back from school and he was doing Hot Rod Brown Class Clown with Whoopi Goldberg outside Hollywood High. It was a high school. And I jumped out of my car in the middle of the scene, as they were shooting, practically." Leo added, "I was like, 'Tobey! Tobey! Tobey! Give me your number.' He was like, 'Yeah, who are you again?'"

It was a big night in France as the Cannes Film Festival kicked off with the opening ceremony and the premiere of The Great Gatsby! Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher, and Tobey Maguire all hit the red carpet after dressing up for a photocall to promote their film, which is at the festival out of competition, earlier today. Cindy Crawford also showed her support in a white Roberto Cavalli gown while Julianne Moore, Freida Pinto, and juror Nicole Kidman walked the red carpet as well — make sure to check out all the glamorous looks from the Great Gatsby premiere.
They aren't the only stars descending on the French Riviera, since Justin Timberlake, Christoph Waltz, Kirsten Dunst, and others have already arrived to take part in the film festival fun. With so many A-listers in one spot, it's hard to choose a favorite — but we're asking you to do just that in our POPSUGAR 100 bracket! Play now for the chance to win a Victoria Beckham handbag.
Leonardo DiCaprio suited up to join his The Great Gatsby leading lady, Carey Mulligan, to kick off the Cannes Film Festival with a glamorous photocall for their film today. Leo and Balenciaga-clad Carey were joined by the rest of their costars, Isla Fisher, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, as well as the film's director, Baz Luhrmann, as the annual festival got under way in the South of France. It was a busy day for the Gatsby crew, who also participated in a press conference to discuss the film that opened in the US last Friday. Gatsby will make its European premiere tonight in Cannes. The Great Gatsby boasted impressive numbers in its first week, raking in $51.1 million from its US debut.
Leo and his longtime friend Tobey Maguire were reunited at the festival after pairing up earlier this week in NYC. Tobey showed his support at Leonardo's Christie's auction, which raised $35 million to benefit environmental and wildlife conservation efforts, a cause that is backed by the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.
Leonardo DiCaprio teamed up with Christie's to cohost the 11th Hour Auction in NYC last night. It was a successful event for Leo since the auction reportedly raised $35 million to benefit environmental and wildlife conservation efforts, almost doubling the goal of $18 million. He had the support of his longtime friend and Great Gatsby costar Tobey Maguire, who put in a winning bid on one of 33 pieces of contemporary art. Leo contributed something from his own art collection, a print called "Ocean V" by well-known photographer Andreas Gursky. Also out for the evening were Bradley Cooper, Mark Ruffalo, and Salma Hayek.
It was Leonardo's second art-inspired outing in as many days, since he also made an appearance at the Brant Foundation Art Study Center's Andy Warhol showing in Greenwich, CT, on Sunday. He'll be switching gears from art to film in the coming days, though, when he debuts The Great Gatsby in Cannes later this week.
The Great Gatsby finally comes out this week, which means the world will get to see Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of the novel, starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the title character. You can get a pretty good idea of what to expect from the many trailers that have come out and the leaks of the soundtrack, and if you can't get enough, good news: here's a ton of pictures. Click through to see 60+ photos from the movie, including looks at each character in costume, shots of the amazing, eye-popping sets, and even a few behind-the-scenes shots.
Adapting F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1920s-set novel The Great Gatsby is an ideal fit for director Baz Luhrmann. The man known for over-the-top visuals in films like Moulin Rouge! and Romeo + Juliet depicts the biggest parties you've ever seen in Jazz Age-era New York, and Luhrmann even presents it all in stunning 3D. The aesthetic is the best thing about The Great Gatsby, which falls short in many other aspects. The movie is bloated with every detail and character from the book, and Fitzgerald's text is awkwardly featured on the screen. Luhrmann is as ambitious as Gatsby's climb toward the American dream, and only some of it pays off.
There are a few saving graces, like Leonardo DiCaprio. The actor puts on the impeccable suits of Jay Gatsby, a man whose background and source of wealth are a mystery. The ridiculously rich Gatsby is king of a Long Island castle where he can buy anything — except for the love of his former sweetheart Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan). She's quite comfortable with the old money she married into, even though her husband, Tom (Joel Edgerton), is a cheating bigot. It's the task of Gatsby's neighbor, narrator Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire), to help Gatsby win Daisy back, and though the two lovers do find their way back to each other, Gatsby's pretty, pretty world crumbles as he tries to make a life with her. The movie follows a similar path, starting off strong — all debauchery, confetti, and champagne — until it fades into a drawn-out bore. Luhrmann still succeeds in some areas, though; to find out what else I thought of The Great Gatsby, just keep reading.

The Great Gatsby premiere in NYC last night was a star-studded affair with a whole host of celebrities stepping out to support the movie's stars. Leonardo DiCaprio was the man of the evening, arriving in a sharp suit, while Carey Mulligan and Isla Fisher stunned in Lanvin and Dolce & Gabbana, respectively. Isla changed into her floral red carpet gown after a busy fews day of Big Apple press that included a stop by Good Morning America. Tobey Maguire and Joel Edgerton, who play Nick Carraway and Tom Buchanan, respectively, were also on hand, as were Jake Gyllenhaal, Nina Dobrev, and a Tom Ford-clad Jay-Z.
The screening was just the latest Gatsby celebration after Prada hosted a cocktail reception in the movie's honor on Tuesday night. Isla, Tobey, and Carey made appearances at that event, where they mingled with Katy Perry and Florence Welch.
