Host of the event Sharon Stone

Forget all the premieres; the hottest ticket so far during the Cannes Film Festival, has to be Sharon Stone’s amfAR Cinema Against AIDS 2009 benefit at the Hotel du Cap yesterday. It was quite the star-studded affair, with the Hollywood stars all out in force.  The red carpet was jam packed with A-listers, including couple Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson. While others chose to fly solo such as Robert Pattinson, Dita Von Teese, Elizabeth Hurley, Noemie Lenoire and Eva Herzigove, to name a few. Our spies have told us that during the event Bill Clinton was the honoured guest – being rewarded for his work against HIV/AIDS which has helped millions battle the deadly disease. We also heard there was  “a formal dinner, along with a world-renowned live auction, all to benefit amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research.” Sounds like one rocking party.

Katie Holmes is leaving her LA nest for greener pastures. Katie will relocate to Australia for three months this summer while she films ‘Don’t Be Afraid’ and can’t wait to get started on the movie. Katie – who will be accompanied by husband Tom Cruise and their three-year-old daughter Suri – told the USA Today newspaper: “I’m really looking forward to it. The movie is really character-driven. It’s really her journey becoming a mother. In the midst of that, there are unexpected scares.” Meanwhile, Katie will portray the sister of Iraq war veteran Jose Pequeno – who suffered a serious brain injury in combat – in the 20th anniversary National Memorial Day Concert in Washington on Sunday (24.05.09) and believes the role is a “gift“. She said: “It’s important to tell these stories and honour the sacrifice and service of these men and women and their families. It’s a real gift to be able to portray an American of such strength. I’m excited. I want to do justice to her story.”
