Cannes: Actor Elle Fanning fainted at the Chopard Trophee dinner at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival.
Fanning, who is a member of this year's festival jury, was sitting at a table next to sister Dakota Fanning, when she collapsed and fell off her chair nearby. According to Variety, the ceremony was paused for a short while. Hollywood actor Colin Firth, who was seated close to Fanning, quickly offered assistance to "The Beguiled" actor.
Actor Marion Cotillard placed a hand over her heart as Fanning was taken away by security. Fanning later took to social media to inform her fans that she is fine. "Oops, had a fainting spell tonight in my 1950's Prada prom dress but it's all good," she captioned her picture in which she can be seen smiling and giving a thumbs up.
