Sorry Thelma, You’ve Been Replaced! Meet Susan Sarandon’s New BFF 5EVA

If somehow you missed all the headlines this week, the 2016 Cannes Film Festival is in full swing, and tomorrow we’ll get into all  the gorgeous fashions — but right now we need to talk about Susan Sarandon and Naomi Watts. The pair arrived in town early for a beauty event, and then proceeded to hit all the parties and premieres together. And, they didn’t just hang out-hang out, oh no, my friends. The ladies smooched and hugged and mugged for the cameras; to all the world it was almost as if Cannes were revolving around them, instead of the films everyone came to see. At times, Naomi and Susan hardly seemed to notice the surrounding hubbub; they only had eyes for each other.

One can hardly blame Naomi — she’s positively beaming — I mean, we’ve all seen that cleavage, right?

I believe Naomi is thinking, “Can’t you at least pop the top button?”

It’s not like Susan doesn’t know her own luck. “Yeah, I’m with her.”

Susan was gracious enough though, and let the camera crew nab a solo shot of Naomi’s dress.
