Cannes Film Festival (17-28 May) is ostensibly about films – and there have been some big ones this year, with screenings of Baz Luhrmann’s new Elvis Presley biopic, and Tom Cruise returning in Top Gun: Maverick.
Whether you want a simple suit for the beach, performance wear for getting your laps in or a statement style for lounging by the pool, there is a wide selection to choose from when updating your swimwear.
In 1990, when Tom Cruise was nominated for an Oscar for Born on the Fourth of July, he seemed on the verge of becoming a serious actor, perhaps one of the finest of his generation. Oliver Stone’s heavyweight drama was based on the true story of Ron Kovic, a US soldier and Vietnam veteran who becomes an anti-war activist after being confined to a wheelchair: apart from its physical challenges, the part required Cruise to convincingly portray the emotional journey from crew-cut patriot to hippie.
As most Manchester City supporters revelled in another Premier League title on Sunday, one of their most famous fans Noel Gallagher was receiving stitches in his face after being accidentally head-butted by Ruben Dias's father.
Q: I’ve always identified as a straight man, but I’ve recently been on dating apps where I have been contacted a lot by other men who say they are straight but are offering sex or oral sex. These are straight dating apps. At first, I felt really confused, as they said they were straight, and on my profile I said I was looking to meet women only. They said they were straight too but kept offering oral sex. One day, I decided to go for it as I felt curious and wondered what the big deal was. It felt kind of weird, but I actually enjoyed it at the time. Since then, I’ve been trying to figure out what this means. I don’t think I’m gay, and I don’t want to settle down with a man, but I want to explore this side of me too. I know some gay people in real life but I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to be like them or thought about sex with men. Does this mean that I am gay now, or that I haven’t really been straight all this time? I’m finding this all very confusing.
