Julia Roberts, Jodie Foster, George Clooney and Jack O’Connell Attend ‘Money Monster’ Photocall At Cannes
Julia Roberts, Jodie Foster, George Clooney and Jack O’Connell all posed together at the photocall for thriller Money Monster at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France.
‘Money Monster’ Photocall
Foster, who directed Money Monster, stood beside the film’s stars as the cameras snapped away on Tuesday. In the film, which Foster directed from a screenplay by Jamie Linden and Alan DiFiore, Clooney plays the host of a financial news program. Roberts, who previously starred opposite Clooney in the Oceans movies, plays his producer. O’Connell, meanwhile, plays a truck driver who blames Clooney’s character for a bad financial move he made on his advice and goes to drastic ends to make it known.
O’Connell, at 25, is by far the newest to the business among the four Hollywood stars at the Cannes photocall. With any luck, the British actor will follow in the footsteps of Foster, Roberts and Clooney, who, according to Foster, have miraculously managed to stay relatively normal despite their many years in Hollywood.
“It’s interesting that all three of us have been in the business for such a long time, and we’re all pretty well adjusted. Although George is a little crazy,” Foster told Entertainment Weekly. “But we all have good lives, and we’re nice to people, and so far none of us is barking like a seal on Hollywood Boulevard. We’ve all had to find some adaptive tool to survive what is a kind of destructive psychological path: figuring out what does belong to the public and what doesn’t. We’ve all found little straws up to the surface of the water to figure out how we can breathe.”
Money Monster hits theaters Friday, May 13.
