Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem had fun at an interview in Paris yesterday. The Skyfall duo swung by the studio for Le Grand Journal to chat about the latest installment of Bond, and also managed to poke fun at Bond's new preference for Heineken by toasting with two beers. Daniel spoke about Bond trading martinis for beer in October's Vanity Fair. He said, "Product placement, whichever way you look at it . . . it's what it is. Heineken gave us a ton of money for there to be Heineken in a shot in a bar. So, how easy is that? Just to say, OK, there's Heineken. It's there — it's in the back of the shot. Without them, the movie couldn't get sold." Javier and Daniel had a busy day of promotions to do following the Paris premiere of Skyfall on Wednesday night. They linked up with their leading lady Bérénice Marlohe for a photocall at a Paris hotel as well.
Robert Pattinson and costar Sarah Gadon made the first of many promotional appearances in Cannes today to chat up their David Cronenberg-directed project, Cosmopolis. Rob's movie is in competition against Kristen Stewart's latest dramatic endeavor, On the Road. Kristen's film premiered last night and even though she didn't walk the carpet with Rob, he was still on hand to support her groundbreaking performance. Kristen and Rob shared some PDA at the afterparty, where the duo were spotted cuddling and kissing. Kristen's reportedly still in Cannes so we'll have to wait and see if she joins Rob tomorrow for his big premiere.
Angelina Jolie made the most of today's stopover in Paris by scheduling two major appearances. She first dropped by Canal Plus's television program Le Grand Journal then continued on to a screening of In the Land of Blood and Honey, where she met up with Brad Pitt on the red carpet.
During Angelina's candid Q&A with Le Grand Journal's panel, she shared insight into her filmmaking process and why she wanted the "brutal story of war" to be told. Angelina also addressed her emotional Bosnian screening and touched on family life with Brad Pitt and their six children. In regards to movie making, Angelina admitted she's not totally sure if she'll direct again, and at the end of the day she regards herself as "just a mommy." The panel posed their questions to Angelina in their native language, but she answered in English and politely declined to show off what she's learned in her French lessons. Angelina did say she'll be willing to conduct an entire interview in French next year. Angelina, Brad, and the kids are heading back to LA in the coming days to be ready for the Academy Awards on Feb. 26.
