Every May the movie world turns its direction to Cannes. Everyone wants to walk the red carpet and movie stars from all over the world come for their time in the spotlight. There are several other actresses that come also, but for an entirely different purpose. Cannes is the time of the year when actresses who have hit some harder times but have a high level of fame and still some kind of beauty audition to be what they call yacht girls for the summer. Cannes is where they try to find the guy that will make them their yacht girl. This is going to focus on three or so actresses who have turned to this road. Once you come down this road it is tough to get off.
The first actress is easy She used to be a B+ movie actress who made some bad choices. Couldn't get a part and one May was convinced to come over. She is actually one of the few who enjoyed it the first few years. She was young and still getting offers from guys in their 30's and 40's. She was making way more than she made as an actress and having the time of her life. Now though it is getting harder to make the same kind of money and when she does find a man it is usually some guy in his 60's or older. The rest don't want her because she has been around for too many seasons.
Another actress who has made it off the yacht system but will probably be back is this former B+ television actress. She first came to Cannes a few years ago and was caught up in the excitement. She found a young rich guy right away and thought it was going to be great. The drugs were great, the guy provided the kind of sex she loved and she wanted to party all summer. After about a month the guy had found someone younger and the actress found herself strung out and then she got lucky and met a big world famous celebrity and he got her out of the cycle and the next thing you know she is back in Hollywood.
A slew of reality stars have tried to join in the parade but its harder for them because the men like to brag and its much easier to brag about someone who was on a hit television show or was a star in the movies than some reality show no one has heard of. One reality show actress who did make it for awhile was on Real World. She had been very popular on the show and men in Europe knew who she was and she lasted a season or two before getting strung out and then had no takers.
There is the British reality star/actress who is always available but only picks one guy and controls her partying. She loves it and says that three months in the south of France pays for her entire year of living. She tries to have a regular boyfriend the rest of the year, and always manages to break up just after Easter.
Don't think this has been going on just the past few years either. One of the greatest acting legends of all time made her fortune doing the same thing way back in the day of old Hollywood. Everyone talks about her with awe. That is their dream.
