First Star To Walk On Cannes 2024 Red Carpet With Four Legs?

This “special star” has gained keen attention from netizens from the moment they walked on the red carpet of Cannes 2024

The 77th Cannes Film Festival has started on May 14th (local time) in France. The opening ceremony was attended by numerous stars such as Jane Fonda, Meryl Streep, Anya Taylor-Joy, etc. and members of the panelists, such as Eva Green, Lily Gladstone, Greta Gerwig, Hirokazu Kore-eda, etc. 

However, the highlight of the event was the appearance of the dog named Messi. Messi walked out on the red carpet on his own amid the loud cheers from reporters. He climbed the stairs and stood in front of the cameras to “greet” everyone.

Messi appeared in “Anatomy of A Fall” by director Justine Triet. In the movie, Messi played the dog Snoop, the best friend of a blind boy named Daniel, who faced a difficult situation when her mother was suspected of murdering his father. Director Justine Triet emphasized that Messi played a very important role in the movie and he even received a two-month training for the filming.

“Anatomy of a Fall” won Palme d’Or at the 76th Cannes Film Festival while Messi was awarded with Palm Dog Award for its excellent performance. At the Oscar 2024, Messi also captured attention as he was also seen on the VIP seat with a black bow around his neck. When Robert Downey Jr. went up the stage to receive Best Supporting Actor for “Oppenheimer”, Messi was spotted congratulating the actor by clapping.
