Garance Dore has just returned from Cannes, where we assumed she was having a great time bopping around the Carlton Hotel and sipping champagne with Kirsten Dunst. Not so, however. In a recent post on her blog, Dore explains why she kind of hates Cannes, and also celebrities in general. After describing in detail what the frustrating process of trying to get a shot of the heavily-entouraged Marion Cotillard, she writes:
Ok. So, the truth is, I hate that. No, but seriously you can’t imagine how I find that ridiculous, all that bullshit. That’s why I choose to not talk about celebrities too much on my blog. Only during Cannes !!! It’s so annoying!"
It’s annoying to be here, photographing her, like everybody else. It’s annoying to find her beautiful, like everybody else. To love her hair, like everybody else. To leave when I have a picture I like and feel way too happy about it. About having had my little piece of Marion. Pffffffff, really, celebrities make people stupid.
