Stars Are All Over Cannes: Jane Fonda, Cate Blanchett, Penelope Cruz, Lupita Nyong’o

"The Counselor" UK Special Screening - Arrivals

Doesn’t she want to get back to work? “Not really,” the great beauty sighed. “The boys are just 9 months and 3 years old.” Apparently she doesn’t know they’re old enough to take care of themselves!
