Getting all glammed up for the premiere of their newest film on Saturday (May 26), Reese Witherspoon and Matthew McConaughey took over the spotlight at the Cannes Film Festival debut screening of their drama, “Mud”.

The pregnant actress looked beautiful in blue as she showed off her growing bump while posing on the red carpet in a full-length flowing cobalt gown while her handsome co-star looked dapper in a black tux and bow tie.

Also in attendance for the red carpet premiere were legendary rocker, Sting, and his wife, Trudie Styler, along with Alec Baldwin and his fiancé, Hilaria Thomas.

The Jeff Nichols directed flick echoes Mark Twain’s iconic book, “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” in which two teenage boys encounter a fugitive and form a pact to help him evade the bounty hunters on his trail to reunite him with his true love.

The script was especially appealing for Witherspoon, who recently told press that it felt like home, explaining, “I grew up with my brother in a creek on a dirt bike riding around, doing motocross, down in the dirt, fishing in Tennessee, so when I read Jeff's script it just felt like home. I never get to see home on the big movie screen and Jeff brought such an authentic, beautiful story to the place and it was just very appealing for me.”
