In photos published in Us Magazine, the actor stood to the far left corner together Zubin Cooper. Exarchopoulos stood beside Robin Wright’s ex while Bardem was on her right. The Dark Places actress stood beside him.
There was not much interaction between the former but Charlize Theron was spotted at one point smiling at, then having a good laugh with Adele Exarchopoulos.
The 40-year-old star looked stunning in a blush dress that was accented with lace. She completed her look with a matching belt and black stilettos. Her beach wave tresses fell to her face while she opted to put on a bold lip color.
The 55-year-old actor, on the other hand, opted to go casual for his Cannes 2016 outing. He wore a green military jacket over a black shirt that he paired with khaki pants. To finish off his look, he wore a pair of white trainers.
