The 65th Annual Cannes Festival is about to launch itself, with all the celebraddies making their way from Nice airport to their various hotels. All in the quest to get their mitts on this. And, more importantly, just to be seen. Preferably while signing autographs.

Those accosted by signature hunters were Alec Baldwin, Jessica Chastain, Diane Kruger, Bill Murray, and Jean Paul Gaultier. Master of Ceremony, Berenice Bejo, happily posed for photos. Jason Schartzman, Tim Roth and Ewan McGregor jovially mugged for the camera, while the likes of Freida Pinto, Jada Pinkett Smith and Willow Smith, bustled past the paps.

And then there was Martin Short. Martin Short beaming from ear to ear wandering across a zebra crossing with his suitcase outside the airport. But still being snapped by one lone pap.

Still got it, Martin. Still got it.
