US actress Elle Fanning has opened up on how she fainted at a gala dinner this week, blaming a “tight dress” she wore at her “time of the month”.
Elle Fanning, who is a member of this year’s jury at the Cannes film festival, said on Instagram:
“Oops, had a fainting spell tonight in my 1950’s Prada prom dress but it’s all good.”
She posted a selfie adding the hashtags #dresstootight and #timeofthemonth.
Rushung to her aid was British actor Colin Firth, who was attending the same dinner. He ensured she was taken away for medical assistance.
Fanning, who is keeping up a tough schedule of movie-viewing and parties at the glitzy French Riviera event, is one of nine film industry luminaries judging this year’s selection at the world’s top film festival.
They will announce who has won the coveted Palme d’Or for best film on Saturday, choosing one of 21 contenders.
