    Various

    I see there is still no smooching pics. Daily mail is so bad with their reporting. I don't see any pics or mention of interviews yet today. This should be another press day for them right?

    I wonder if soderbergh will show up at the premiere.

    When will Matt and Lucy actually be walking the red carpet at Cannes? Someone mentioned earlier Matt will be at GMA on Tuesday meaning he'll be back in NYC. Or did they mean just a taped segment will air on GMA on Tuesday?

    Re: Various

    Lucy & matt should be on the red carpet tomorrow as the premiere is tomorrow. He taped the gma interview yesterday (in Cannes ) that will air tomorrow. When this is over he'll probably go back to filming monuments men which time till end of June I believe.

    Re: Various

    Correct. The GMA interviews are pre-taped and the premiere is Tuesday night.

    The Daily Mail got the caption wrong - the photos from that series at lunch have Matt kissing the blonde woman and another woman in white, but none of them are Lucy. The Mail must have realised that and removed the picture, but not the heading.

    More photos from the series at this link (Lucy's in a black shirt, not white):

    Empire review

    http://www.empireonline.com/reviews/reviewcomplete.asp?FID=138167

    It’s Matt Damon, as that wronged party, who impresses most, though. It is the hardest role: the non-showy one. Somehow we accept his Scott as being quietly assured rather than nervous, just a little unworldly rather than a cripplingly naive rube. It makes it all the more interesting to witness his regression to fussed-over, all-too-easily-discarded house doll; greater testament, appropriately oddly, to the sheer power of Liberace’s personality.

    Re: lucy

    Lucy is wearing a black shirt and ponytail and seems have double pierced earrings, thats something new. Michael Douglas is greeting Alexia.

    Re: lucy

    After two false captions, there are photos of Matt and Lucy kissing at the lunch on Sunday - at newscom.com (a pole blocks the good shot).

    Just Jared now has more of these photos:

    Re: lucy

    To me it looks like the girl in the hat is one of the older girls, maybe Isabella. Also, I may be crazy but to me that blond woman looks like Frances McDormand. Anybody else think so?

    Re: lucy

    Yes! When I was looking at the pics on newscom I thought the same thing that is Frances mcdormand. Doesn't her husband have a film showing at Cannes? And Stella does look like matt. If you look at a pic of matt as a boy you will definitely see it.

    Re: lucy

    I think one photo looks like Frances but it's not her (she doesn't seem to be at Cannes).

    Re: lucy

    It is her.

    Re: lucy

    My apologies, it looks like you're right. Frances is in Cannes, but hasn't attended major events.

    Re: lucy

    That is definitely NOT Stella in the fedora hat. If you notice carefully Stella's shirt is similar color but it has stripes, there are no stripes on the person wearing the hat.

    When I looked at Stella, she looks exactly like her daddy! I mean a spitting image of him!

    LA Home

    This is all very exciting as we anticipate BEHIND THE CANDELABRA!!

    While Matt & family are in Cannes, I can confirm that his new LA home is being renovated inside before they move in presumably this summer.

    Father Daughter Time

    I can't remember if this has been linked before - the ScriptShadow review (and 97 comments) about "Father Daughter Time" from early 2012 when John Krasinski was also rumored to star.

    General review was that it's promising but needs work.
