Sure, Cannes is THE Place to see and be seen…but it can also be a place of judgement.
One star in particular felt the heat of the image-conscious festival, so she decided to skip it back in 1989 after the birth of her daughter. Who’s the star? And what do they have to say about it now? Find out, after the jump!
Andie MacDowell is the celeb who skipped out on attending the Cannes Film Festival in 1989!
Because she had recently had her daughter, the actress felt self-conscious and missed out on celebrating her movie’s win at the prestigious festival!
“Sex, Lies, and Videotape won here and I didn’t come because I had just had my daughter, and I was nursing her and really round and I was afraid people would make fun of me. I know that was stupid. Now in hindsight, because I’ve matured and I’m older, I don’t really care what people say.”
It’s sad that she felt so much pressure to look good after she’d given birth. Glad she went this year…and looked FLAWLESS!
