Cate Blanchett appears to show solidarity with Palestine at Cannes Film Festival

Hollywood celebrities including Cate Blanchett, Joaquin Phoenix and Andrew Garfield are weighing in on the Israel-Hamas conflict.

Cate Blanchett has been applauded on social media after she seemingly sent a message of solidarity with the Palestinian cause on the red carpet at Cannes.

The Australian actor – who is at the annual film festival to promote her upcoming film, Rumours – attended the premiere of Donald Trump biopic The Apprentice on Monday local time, wearing a form-fitting Jean Paul Gaultier gown designed by Haider Ackermann.

Featuring a black front and light pink back (which photographed white), with green lining inside, when Blanchett posed on the red carpet – revealing the inverted colour panel – the black, white, green and red colour scheme bore a stark resemblance to the Palestinian flag.
