Diane Kruger and Cara Delevingne among guests at Cannes premiere of The Innocent

The premiere was also attended by Oscar-winning director Guillermo Del Toro and actor Jake Gyllenhaal.

Diane Kruger, Cara Delevingne and Kristen Stewart were among the famous faces at the star-studded Cannes premiere of Louis Garrel’s The Innocent.

The film, in which Garrel also stars, sees the director try his hand at a new genre of film, the romantic thriller.

He stars alongside Roschdy Zem, Anouk Grinberg and Noemie Merlant as Abel, a man who opposes his mother’s marriage to a convict.

The Innocent is billed as a “touchingly offbeat and funny film” which flicks between romantic comedy and heist-movie.

Mortensen was previously pictured alongside Lea Seydoux, with whom he stars in David Cronenberg’s Crimes Of The Future.

Last week, the 75th annual festival hosted the star-studded premiere for Top Gun: Maverick, which saw Tom Cruise attend for the first time in 30 years.

The event was subject to strict Covid-19 protocols in 2021 but this year’s Cannes has largely done away with pandemic measures.
