Report: D-List Actresses at Cannes Film Festival Sell Sex For Cash Says Source

For those of you who are seething with envy at the thought of the International jet-set, plus assorted Eurotrash and wannabes flying into Cannes for the film festival next week- don't. A new article by Dana Kennedy in The Hollywood Reporter lifts the lid on the sleazy underbelly of the annual movie industry event and it isn't pretty. Not surprisingly, high class call girls flock to the French Riviera in May like bees to a honeypot with one Paris-based sex worker calling it "the biggest pay day of the year". But the most fascinating part of the report is that a film industry veteran explains the presence of D-List actresses in the tiny coastal town as them selling sexual favours to Hollywood execs for big envelopes of cash known as a "gift":
"Women installed on yachts in Cannes during the film festival are called "yacht girls," and the line between professional prostitutes and B- or C-list Hollywood actresses and models who accept payment for sex with rich older men is sometimes very blurred, explains one film industry veteran. "You'd definitely recognise more than a few names from Hollywood," he says. "These are actresses who made bad career choices and fell off the radar. They tell themselves what they're doing at Cannes is OK, that they're just on dates with rich men, when the reality is they're doing what prostitutes do. But they like the money."
Well this certainly confirms our suspicions, doesn't it? Images of various film festival attendees who are clearly there for above-board movie industry business via Zimbio.

    There was a big article last year about “YACHT GIRLS” and how a few are able to live the entire year on the proceeds from the season…a few actually have gotten a career or marriage from it.
    It has been going on for as long as the super rich flock to the beauty of the South Of France…big boat required.
    Will Lindsay miss the season ? Darn that rehab, guess mom will send Ali.

    • Jen Paul says:

      Ha. yes, sort of makes me think that’s part of her sulkiness about going to rehab- no Cannes $$$$$$$

      sad but no doubt Ali will need to pick up the slack. I saw a picture of her modeling after not having seen her for months. Advertising? Your children should not be your paycheck.

  2. Everything is for rent at Cannes. It’s not even as if the people on the yachts actually own the yachts, or the Lamborghinis they drive up and down the Croisette. There’s only one thing sadder than this; it’s the bright young things that go to party but are not getting paid, hoping they can get a break. There can be a powerful aroma of despair at some events.

      Nail-smacked-head MannesinCannes. It’s certainly not the glamathon people imagine it might be. Seedy.
