Marion Cotillard stole the show at the premiere of her new film Blood Ties in Cannes in a multi-coloured Dior gown.

The Oscar-winning actress joined co-stars Zoe Saldana, Clive Owen, Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts, James Caan and her writer-director partner Guillaume Canet on the red carpet for the gala screening.

Blood Ties is about two brothers, the younger, played by Billy Crudup, a cop and the elder, played by Clive Owen, an ex-con, both caught up in the world of organised crime in the 70s.

Marion plays the ex-con's Italian-born ex and had to adopt a New York-Italian accent for the movie - an experience she admitted was "very, very stressful."

When an Italian reporter complimented her accent, she sighed: "I'm going to kiss you! You can't imagine how much pleasure you've given me."

The Beach star turned director Guillaume - with whom Marion has a two-year-old son - starred as the older brother in the original French version of the film, Les Liens Du Sang, in 2008.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Pisces:

Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
