She was one of the most anticipated actresses on the Croisette side this year. Showing four films, including three in official competition, Léa Seydoux was to be one of the stars of this 74th edition of the largest film festival in the world. Unfortunately, the 36-year-old actress was unable to make the trip and parade alongside Timothée Chalamet and Bill Murray for the premiere of The French Dispatch, Wes Anderson’s latest film. The reason ? The young mother is positive for covid and if we wondered for a moment if she would be present, her participation was definitely canceled.
A real disappointment for the young woman who split from a community taken over by Variety. “I wish I could celebrate the return of cinema at my favorite festival, but it’s in everyone’s best interests that I remain cautious and participate in ensuring everyone’s health and safety.”, she says.
Blame it on a shoot!

Yet cautious, the companion of André Meyer is vaccinated, but that did not prevent her from catching this damn virus. This is during a recent shoot that the actress would have caught the coronavirus, according to the French media.
