Robert De Niro will serve as jury president for the 64th annual Cannes festival (from May 11 to 22). The announcement made on Thursday is evidence that the love affair between France and the US actor is back on.
After being questioned over his possible involvement in a Paris prostitution ring in 1998, a furious Robert De Niro told French daily Le Monde: “I will never return to France”. He would advise his friends against visiting the country, give back his Legion of Honour, and steer clear of the Cannes Film Festival.
