Sunny Leone’s interview:

During an interview with Anupama Chopra’s Film Companion, Sunny Leone shared her thoughts on the “pressure of the red carpet,” the film’s selection, and her appearance for the big day. Leone revealed that her debut is causing her intense anxiety, surpassing the normal amount. The significance of her own role and the film amplifies the pressure of being on the red carpet for her. The fact that Kennedy has been selected by a prestigious jury for the festival is a tremendous honour and holds great importance for Leone.

When questioned about expectations for her red-carpet appearance, Leone expressed her determination to stay true to herself and feel beautiful in her own unique way. She found it intriguing that the frequently asked questions revolved around her attire, as the answer seemed obvious—she would be wearing clothes.

Leone emphasised over and over again that she is not concerned about others’ opinions regarding her appearance. Her priority lies in remaining authentic and not succumbing to societal expectations of what she should wear at the event. Feeling comfortable and confident in her own skin is paramount, regardless of others’ judgment. Leone hopes to convey this attitude through her presence and leave a lasting impression.

As the highly anticipated moment approaches, Leone’s debut at the Cannes Film Festival’s red carpet is a milestone in her career.
