Kelly Brook Propositioned for 1million in Cannes
Ah Cannes. Yesterday, Caroline brought you Cheryl Cole's legless torso floating up the red carpet. Today, we have the news that Kelly Brook's managed to find an alternative source of cash after her failed attempts at cracking Hollywood.
According to The Mirror, a French businessman "who is known only as Frederic, interrupted a photocall session which Brook was attending at the Majestic Barriere hotel and offered her a cheque for €1million in return for 'one night' with her." So that isn't yer man she's photographed with there, but he does indeed look the type. The Mirror continues: "Brook was a bit confused at first (funny that) and thought it was nothing more than a prank set up by (Keith) Lemon - whose film she was promoting at the 65th Cannes Film Festival. But Frederic, who is said to be in his thirties, wouldn't give up and allegedly tried to grab the brunette.
The Daily Mail adds: "'Just one night! Please, one night! I have money!' he shouted as Brook suddenly realised there was a problem. A bodyguard came to the rescue and escorted the man away and was ejected from the French hotel. And despite perhaps being a bit shaken up, Brook continued her photo shoot and showed no signs being freaked out as she graced the red carpet."
It's not surprising Kelly thought it was a prank set up by Lemon - what with the film's teaser trailer involving him offering her fame and possibly an Oscar (never mind £1million quid) if he can smash her back doors in. Her words, not mine. Let's be honest, though, it was clearly a PR stunt.
In other Cannes news, (presumably) the French version of Jackass also turned up to the 'Vous N'avez Encore Rien Vu' premiere, while Ronan Keating promoted his film Goddess with Laura Michelle Kelly.
For those of you who can't wait until the film's release to find out what it's about, Kelly plays one Elspeth Dickens, who "dreams of finding her 'voice' despite being stuck in an isolated farmhouse with her twin toddlers. A web-cam becomes her pathway to fame and fortune, but at a price."
It would make more sense if Ronan Skypes her as an Australia's Got Talent judge, but it appears that he's married to her. I too stopped listening around the "Elspeth Dickens" point.
