During the Festival, two artists had a altercation on the red carpet. Security agents had to intervene to separate them.
The famous steps of the Palais des Festivals are now graced by the most illustrious celebrities from around the world. The 2023 edition is in full swing, and we have the chance to see the most famous stars of the seventh art dressed in stunning outfits.
Although the film festival is known to be an elegant and sophisticated event, this unexpected scene between two actors has caused a sensation.
The festival is one of the most anticipated events of the year in the film industry. In 2023, actress Chiara Masstroianni was selected to lead it. The fifty-year-old star paid special tribute to her mother, Catherine Deneuve.
A few minor incidents have occurred throughout the history of the Cannes Film Festival. However, one of them is particularly remarkable.
During the 45th edition in 1992, two actors clashed on the famous Cannes red carpet.
This unusual situation left a mark on the history of the Croisette. Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren engaged in a verbal and physical altercation without any apparent reason.
Their increasingly intense altercation captivated the audience and the attending journalists.
The two actors exchanged loud blows, and security guards were asked to separate them.
It was a surprising story, far from the usual celebrity events where radiant smiles and compliments are exchanged. However, it was later revealed that this legendary scene was actually staged.
Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren later revealed that their dispute had been carefully planned to promote their latest film. Their confrontation had been meticulously staged to reflect the plot of the film in question.
