Charlize and Natalie to rock Cannes

MOVIES

Some of Hollywood's biggest names including Charlize Theron (left), Michael Fassbender and Natalie Portman are expected to walk down the red carpet at this year's Cannes Film Festival - but organisers have warned them to leave their selfie sticks at home. Among the films being shown in competition at the festival is lesbian love story Carol, based on Patricia Highsmith's novel, which stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara as lovers in 1950s New York.

The line-up was announced today at a press conference where festival director Thierry Fremaux called selfies "ridiculous and grotesque" and said the festival strongly discouraged them.
