Style Icon Demi Moore Has a Busy Schedule

Don’t be surprised if you see Demi Moore on the Croisette — like, a lot. The veteran actress is set to make a mark at the Cannes Film Festival this year with a film in competition and a packed schedule to match.

Moore stars in filmmaker Coralie Fargeat’s The Substance opposite Margaret Qualley and Dennis Quaid. Little is known about Fargeat’s sophomore feature — she debuted with 2017’s stylish Revenge — other than that it’s being referred to as a feminist take on body horror. 

Cannes has given The Substance a late-night slot for its world premiere on Sunday, May 19, confirming a busy weekend for Moore. As previously announced, the actress will also take on the role of godmother for luxury jewelry house Chopard’s Trophée Chopard gala ceremony. The event, at Carlton Beach Club on May 17, will see rising star honors presented to Challengers star Mike Faist and Talk to Me breakout Sophie Wilde. Moore will be following in the well-heeled footsteps of past godmothers like Julia Roberts and Natalie Portman. The godmothers usually accompany Chopard artistic director and co-president Caroline Scheufele to that evening’s red carpet premiere at the Palais.

So, it would not be a surprise to see Moore at the world premiere of Yorgos Lanthimos’ Kinds of Kindness, which would mark her first sighting at the Palais since she accompanied then-husband Bruce Willis to the premiere of The Fifth Element in 1997.

Moore has another confirmed outing at The American Pavilion where she has been booked for a session of the “In Conversation” series, which also features documentarian Frederick Wiseman, actor Billy Zane and five American filmmakers. Moore’s chat, moderated by Vanity Fair’s David Canfield, is set for May 19.

On the heels of that, Moore will serve as the host of amfAR’s milestone 30th anniversary Cannes gala at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc with musical guest Cher on May 23.

That’s all the intel we have right now, but stay tuned as there’s sure to be more Moore in the coming days.
