benicioWas Benicio Del Toro close to wearing heels on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival??

Yeah, but it was basically a joke.

There was a big hoopla over an alleged ‘high heel’ requirement for ladies at the festival.

Apparently, some women were not allowed on the carpet if they wore flats or heels that were deemed to low.

In response, Benicio and costar Josh Brolin joked that they would wear heels on the red carpet – but they didn’t.

Festival director Thierry Fremaux took to Twitter to debunk the report, calling rumors of the shoe shut-down “unfounded.”
