Via Psycho Muse on Museblog, this Hollywood Reporter account of the swanky goings-on at Cannes:
Guests were waiting in a line to allow VIPs to go up the red carpet for the opening of Francois Ozon's "Swimming Pool." As they shuffled along, waiting their turn to climb the stairs, a prominent financier and another colleague felt something like rain on their legs. Looking down, they saw that a well-dressed woman in front of them was urinating on the carpet, oblivious of those around her. Said the financier, "I skipped the film and went home to change and wash my legs." The offender continued on into the cinema.
(You people have no idea how much self-control was required not to make the obvious pun on 'European' here.)
