Joining the many stars taking to the European locale, Reese Witherspoon was alongside husband Jim Toth as the couple touched down at France's Nice Airport on Thursday (May 24).

Wearing a sheer black dress, the expecting actress held on tight to her man as they squeezed through the bustling terminal before loading into an awaiting ride and setting off on the thirty minute drive to the Cannes Film Festival grounds.

The southern France arrival comes as Reese is readying to step out for the Cannes screening of her new Jeff Nichols directed drama "Mud" - with the movie slated to debut this Saturday, May 26th.

Co-starring Matthew McConaughey, Michael Shannon and Sarah Paulson, the film tells the story of "two teenage boys who encounter a fugitive and form a pact to help him evade the bounty hunters on his trailer and to reunite him with his true love."
