Maya Hawke leaves people baffled as she pirouettes down red carpet at Cannes

Maya Hawke leaves people baffled as she pirouettes down red carpet at Cannes

Maya Hawke is part of a huge ensemble cast in Wes Anderson's new film Asteroid City

Maya Hawke has raised a couple of eyebrows after she was spotted pirouetting and twirling her way down the red carpet at the premiere of Wes Anderson’s new film Asteroid City.

Here's the footage, so you can make up your own mind:

Hawke stars in the film as part of one of Anderson’s now-trademark gigantic celebrity ensembles.

This particular cavalcade of stars includes Tom Hanks, Willem Dafoe, Bryan Cranston, Jason Schwartzman, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton – deep breath – Margot Robbie, Jeff Goldblum, Edward Norton, Liev Schreiber, Hope Davis, Rupert Friend, and Steve Carell.

There’s more too, but we’ve only got a limited amount of space.

Anyway, the film enjoyed a moment in the sun down in the south of France yesterday as it was premiered to largely positive reaction at Cannes Film Festival.

However, it was Hawke and co-star Friend who drew the eye, twirling and dancing their way down the red carpet in front of the assembled press pack.

Maya Hawke raised eyebrows during Asteroid City's Cannes premiere.

The Stranger Things star seemed without a care in the world as she span down the carpet in a green dress with long opera gloves on.

Whilst they seemed to be sharing a wholesome and fun moment, people have been queuing up to pull them down for it.

In fact, some have even described it as ‘annoying’.

On Twitter, one joyless soul said: “That was hard to watch.”

“I’m sorry but the way I am rolling my eyes,” said another.

A third commented: “This is insufferable what the hell are they doing?”

Having fun, perhaps?

Maybe they’ve just finished shooting a movie and are feeling a bit carefree?

Luckily, not everyone has been so scathing of them, with some people commenting that they liked the light-hearted and happy-go-lucky nature of their celebrations.

“I want more of this on every red carpet,” one said.

A second said: “Honestly if you aren’t dancing down that red carpet in a corseted ballgown and opera gloves what are you even doing in Cannes?”

“I just love Maya Hawke’s energy and aura,” commented a third.

They should be happy too, as so far it seems as if Anderson’s latest comedy-drama is going to go down as a success.

Set in a desert town in the 1950s, the plot revolves around a Junior Space Cadet Convention that is interrupted by some fairly seismic events.

But, to find out any more than that, you’ll have to go see it.

For those that aren’t lucky enough to be at Cannes, the film is set for a wide release on June 23.
