Pete Doherty was in France this past weekend to attend the Cannes Film Festival because that's where his debut film is premiering!
His first major acting role in Confession of a Child of the Century was unveiled on Sunday at the festival, but it wasn't to the best reviews.
While one reviewer praised the British rocker as "perfectly cast," others weren't so nice.
The Guardian panned the film and said, "Pete Doherty's performance as a philosophising dandy is as catastrophic as the

No, no. When Pete Doherty goes to Cannes, he's prepared to enjoy all forms of entertainment.

This is just…morbid.
Along with pieces from Pete Doherty’s On Blood: A Portrait of the Artist exhibition - which consists of drawings/paintings using copious amounts of Doherty’s blood - a painting done by Amy Winehouse and Pete Doherty using Amy’s blood will be auctioned off Friday evening at London’s Cobb Gallery.
Wait, hold up. So blood stains are art now?
In a recent interview, Pete Doherty, reflects how he felt paralyzed from shock after Amy Winehouse's death.
Hopefully this devastating loss will help him maintain his own sobriety.
Fresh out of a shortened prison sentence for cocaine possession, Pete Doherty has reportedly planned to dedicate his upcoming stint at Reading and Leeds Festival to his deceased dear friend, Amy Winehouse.
A source explains:
“Pete was really good mates with Amy and he’s still really cut up about her death. He hopes to help get rid of his demons by dedicating his festival gigs to her memory. He loved her music and hopes he can do it justice."
With those kind of intentions, we think that he'll do more than do her justice.
We're sure she'd be so appreciative, Pete!
Best of luck!
