Actress promoting her directorial debut

Goldie Hawn held court on the Kanaloa yacht Monday, publicizing her directorial debut, “Ashes to Ashes.”

“I like comedies, they tell important stories,” Hawn said of the film, which she also co-wrote. “All comedies come out of very serious subjects, out of conflict and dilemma and instability.”

Production company Velvet Octopus hosted the bash, which also celebrated Gabor Csupo’s “The Moon Princess.” “I just figured there’s a lot of wine going to flow through glasses so I should be here in Cannes,” Csupo joked.
