Kate Beckinsale reveals the Do’s and Don’ts of of Being a Cannes Festival Juror to New York Magazine.

Is there a certain type of film you’re hoping to promote here at Cannes? What’s been very nice from the beginning is that Tim’s been very clear that none of us are going in with an agenda. We’re not looking for a political film, necessarily — or anything. We’re all looking forward to going in and seeing what it is. That’s what’s nice about the group — it’s only been two days, but so far nobody seems to have a really strong agenda. Everyone’s waiting to be surprised and moved.

What are you going to do? Take notes?
I arrived late because of the whole volcano thing, missed the inaugural dinner and all that. And I just thought, “Oh shit, everyone’s going to have done their homework but me. I was going to ask that: Are we supposed to take notes or is that going to piss people off when they look over and see me writing? I think I probably will. It’s a lot of films: two a day.

Did you feel you had to cram?
Well, yeah! I made sure I was familiar with the directors and their previous work. I didn’t want to go in as a complete neophyte.

Favorite memories from Cannes?
I’ve been here twice before. The first time I came was like the most shocking experience. I was eighteen and I’d just done Much Ado About Nothing and my agent didn’t tell me I could bring a friend or anything. So I was alone and I think I wore steel-toe-capped Dr. Martens on the red carpet! I had no idea. We didn’t have [the same support] in England. We didn’t have makeup and hair people. You just sort of showed up and hoped you didn’t have stains on you. And I remember going up the red carpet into the theater and thinking: God, it’s like being at a rock concert! So it’s nice to come back elderly, having been through the fire a bit.
