CANNES WATCH: Man flouts no-selfie guidelines on red carpet

CANNES, France (AP) — The organizers of the Cannes Film Festival aren't going to like these pictures.

A guest at the premiere of Woody Allen's "Irrational Man," snapped a picture of himself with both Allen and the film's star, Emma Stone, on the red carpet Friday night — disregarding the wishes of the festival's director.

Although selfies weren't explicitly banned, festival director Thierry Fremaux had said that they were "ridiculous and grotesque" and pleaded for self-restraint on selfies as guests walked the red carpet.

Stone smiled during the selfie photo, while Allen looked less than amused.
