Celeb spotting at Cannes

The ongoing 62nd Cannes Film Festival saw a lot of celebs take to the red carpet.

Here are a few that we spied.

Monica Bellucci and Sophie Marceau

There's hot and then there's smoking hot.

And we were treated to the latter when two amazing looking actresses -- Monica Bellucci and Sophie Marceau -- walked the red carpet to promote their latest movie, Don't Look Back at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival.

The actresses looked stunning in matching red gowns. But what's hot was the actresses' affectionate behaviour towards each other.

Italian actress Monica, 44, and French actress Sophie, 42, had become close friends during the filming of the psychodrama, which was directed by writer-director Marina De Van. The friendship was clearly visible as they cuddled and held hands on Saturday.
