Eva Mendes, Keira Knightley caught in Rome Film Festival protest

HollywoodNews.com: Keira Knightley and Eva Mendes were left puzzled when the premiere for their film “Last Night” was disrupted by angry protestors at the Rome Film Festival.

Workers from the film and TV industry were up in arms over the drastic cuts the Italian government had made.

Per the Sun, both actresses were ushered to a side entrance for the screening which was delayed for two hours.

“Last Night” helmer Massy Tadjedin joined in with the protestors, yelling, “We are pleased to renounce the red carpet and support you.” One of those picketing was “Rain Man” actress Valeria Golino.

She exclaimed, “The government disrespects our industry, which means culture, entertainment.

“They disrespect the people who work in the industry – it would be enough to protest about that.

“They call us names, that would be enough to protest. But that’s not (the) only (thing) – they’ve cut our funds for (the) film industry.

“They’ve cut tax shelter, tax credit, which was our only hope for independent movies to be made. It’s a farce.”
