The Cannes Film Festival has begun, and two-time Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett will preside over the festivities as the 2018 jury president. Other jury members include directors Ava DuVernay, Robert Guédiguian, Denis Villeneuve and Andrey Zvyagintsev, singer-songwriter Khadja Nin, and actors Chang Chen, Léa Seydoux and Kristen Stewart. Between taking on tough questions about the disparity of films made by men and women at this year’s event, Blanchett awed the internet by giving us an all-female photo call for the ages.
But what’s driven Twitter mad with desire are the shots where Stewart seems to swoon over Blanchett.
And naturally, Twitter users are running with it, shipping these two hard with Carol references and memes.
