Kicking off the celebrations, Nicole Kidman arrived in Cannes for begin the 2014 Film Festival on Wednesday (May 14).

Looking radiant in white, the 46-year-old actress promoted her upcoming flick “Grace of Monaco” and hit up the photocall to chat with the press about the project.

In related news, the royal family of Monaco issued a statement earlier this month after the release of the first look at the movie and said, “The trailer appears to be a farce and confirms the totally fictional nature of this film.”

Miss Kidman responded to the criticism and told the press, “I mean, obviously, I feel sad, because I think the film has no malice toward the family, particularly toward Grace or [Prince] Rainier. It’s a fictionalization. You take dramatic license.”

“Grace of Monaco” opens up the Cannes Film Festival today and is still awaiting an American release date.
