In Pictures: amfAR’s Cannes’ AIDS Gala And Madonna’s Charitable Bag

TO the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS 2010 fundraiser at the Hotel Du Cap, Eden Roc, Cap D’Antibes during the Cannes Film Festival. Some charities the celebs like: Aids charities is one. But as Roger Freidman notes, it can be a case of you back my charity or I’ll scratch ours.

When Madonna appeared in Cannes two years ago at the annual AmFAR dinner, she auctioned off her handbag and generally carried on… Now I’ve learned that AmFAR donated $1 million to Madge’s Raising Malawi charity to get her there…

So say what you will, Madonna’s presence was her donation to the cause.

In Pictures: Russell Crowe’s Middle Aged Robin Hood Woos Milf Marian

TO the Cannes screening, then, of Robin Hood, Ridley Scott’s attempt to turn the robber of rich men into a Middle Aged James Bond. And who better to play Middle Aged Bond than middle aged Russell Crowe? In this episode, Robin gets of with Milf Marian and sticks it to loads of Frenchies on beaches. It’s like a Club 18-30 theme holiday but without the dramatic tension and vomit. And then there’s the tagline: “Robin Hood- Licence To Quill.” Enough already…
