Cannes to Crack Down on Selfies on Red Carpet

festival director Thierry Fremaux said Thursday The Cannes Film Festival will launch a campaign against the practice of selfies on the red carpet.
He made the comments in announcing this year's lineup of films.
He said, "We don't want to prohibit it, but we want to slow down the process of selfies on the steps. We think it's ridiculous and grotesque and really slows things down."
Added Fremaux: You never look as ugly as you do in a selfie."
