Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst Close Out Cannes With One Last Golden Night
Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst were on hand for the Cannes Film Festival's closing ceremony last night. The cinema event's winners were announced once the stars gathered inside, and Kirsten took home the prize for best actress in Melancholia. Her big-screen skills luckily took center stage after the film's director Lars von Trier made controversial remarks about Nazism, which got him subsequently banned from Cannes, during a press conference. Ryan made an appearance to support Nicolas Winding Refn as he won best director for Drive, even demonstrating his love for Nicolas with a smack on the lips. The festival's biggest honor, the Golden Palm, went to Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life after the film's screening met mixed reviews. Brad Pitt, who stars in the drama, wasn't able to attend the show since he already made the trip back to LA to join Angelina Jolie and their kids at her Kung Fu Panda 2 premiere.
