T he atmosphere was electric ahead of the premiere of Girls of the Sun, the only female-directed movie in competition at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, on Day 5 of the prestigious annual event. With the disco anthem “I’m Every Woman” blaring, the crowd was pumping, but the real primer was a historic demonstration that preceded the premiere, when jury president Cate Blanchett led a women’s march up the red carpet. “On these steps today stand 82 women representing the number of female directors who have climbed these stairs since the first edition of the Cannes Film Festival in 1946,” said the Oscar winner. “In the same period 1,688 male directors have climbed these very same stairs.” Surrounded by colleagues including fellow jury members Salma Hayek and Kristen Stewart, the star…

closer than ever

AFTER TOUCHING DOWN IN SYDNEY on May 6 with daughters Sunday, 9, and Faith, 7, Nicole Kidman was joined two days later by husband Keith Urban, 50. Having Urban by her side is essential for the actress. Despite tabloid talk of a split and busy schedules (she’s working on Season 2 of Big Little Lies, he’s rehearsing to tour his latest album), “We always consider the ‘us,’ ” Kidman, 50, has said of their almost 12-year marriage. “We say, ‘Is this going to be good for us?’ It’s the simplest phrase, but it works.” That consideration also extends into planning their free time with family. On May 12, the unit of four spent a day out together in North Sydney, stopping by a bookshop before ducking into a café. Later, they…

As a musician and movie star with children, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban take turns as the ‘cool parent,’ Urban joked to The Project on May 10. “It depends on who’s got the better food. I’ve got catering on tour and mum’s got craft services on the set,” he said. “I’ve got the advantage of having the tour bus and they really love the tour bus. Beats a trailer.” Kidding aside, “My children get to travel, they get to see things that they would normally not,” Kidman has said. “I sometimes feel bad they’re taken out of school, and they’re travelling around, but ... I want to keep us together.”…

house rules’ jess my wedding dream

HOUSE RULES CONTESTANT JESSICA DOVER grew up dreaming of her wedding day. Fast-forward a few years and the Adelaide primary-school teacher isn’t far off making that dream a reality with her boyfriend of two years, former Crows midfielder Jared Petrenko, 28. “I know we joke about it throughout the competition, but I’m happy whenever it happens!” Jess tells WHO. “I’m sure I’ll know when Jared is about to propose though, because he doesn’t have a romantic bone in his body. The second anything out of the norm happens I’ll know,” she laughs. With the nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on May 19 (see p. 18), royal wedding fever runs high, and similarities between her and the American actress have been frequently pointed out to the 24-year-old. “I am actually…

SAM PERRY, THE ELECTRIFYING VOCAL-loop artist who got through to the live performances of Nine’s The Voice as part of Kelly Rowland’s team after copping flak from Boy George for being“not a singer,” tells WHO there wasn’t anything controversial about his September engagement to girlfriend Liberty Hills: “We had an island to ourselves in Borneo, and I proposed to her there.” The Perth-based actress, 26, who started dating Sam, 28, nearly eight years ago, says the pair had spent a day of snorkelling and hiking with Sam’s cousin Tom and his girlfriend, Lucy, before they relaxed with some whiskey and favourite songs by a bonfire.“It was a really magical evening,” says Liberty.“I cried when he got down on one knee, and for about 10 minutes after that. It couldn’t have been…
