Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie's ready to deliver twins in France next month.

But these babies will require a red carpet, not a wet nurse.

Two of the Oscar winner's films will debut at the 61st Cannes Film Festival.

Her 1920s kidnap thriller Changeling, directed by Clint Eastwood, is already building buzz to take home the top prize, the Palme d'Or.

Eastwood will compete against 19 directors, among them Steven Soderbergh, who will debut his twofer Che Guevara flick, Che, starring Benicio Del Toro and comprising two separate films, The Argentine and Guerilla, during the festival.

Out of competition, Jolie and Jack Black's animated adventure Kung Fu Panda will have its premiere.

Also premiering: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Woody Allen's new Spanish comedy, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, starring real-life loves Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz.

This isn't Jolie's first Cannes outing, however—au contraire.

Last year, she and beau Brad Pitt got cozy as they debuted A Might Heart, and he premiered Ocean's 13.

And she's not the only Riviera-bound A-lister.

Madonna is also expected to appear at the south of France festival next month.

She's going to chair the amfAR charity dinner at the celebrated Moulin de Mougins restaurant. The Foundation for AIDS Research is one of the world's leading nonprofit organizations dedicated to HIV/AIDS research, and all the profits from the dinner and a charity auction during the film festival will support its cause.
