Cannes: Old School Hollywood as Meryl Streep Gets Her Palme D’or Honor, Jane Fonda Rocks the Red Carpet


Cannes 2024 opened with a bang.

Who says old school Hollywood is dead? To make it a glamorous night, Meryl Streep was given her Palme D’or honor, presented by another Oscar winner, Juliet Binoche.

On the red carpet, Jane Fonda, 86, literally stole the show. Sacre bleu!

You do know the connection between Streep and Fonda: Meryl’s first ever movie was “Julia,” starring Jane and Vanessa Redgrave. It’s one of the great films of all time. Rent it ASAP.
