Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban were as red hot as the carpet beneath them at the Cannes Film Festival this weekend. The smitten couple were pictured in a passionate embrace as they made their way through the swarm of cameras for the screening of Inside Llewyn Davis. The French Riviera's disappointing weather did nothing to dampen the couple's spirits, and they held hands and shared a few jokes at the star-studded event.

Wearing a L'Wren Scott strapless creation, A-lister Nicole shone in the vibrant red, blue and black leaf-print gown. Keith, who flew in especially to support his wife, grinned from ear to ear in traditional black and white get-up. The happy couple have been married for nearly seven years, but still share the passion of a newlywed couple.  "Keith just gave me confidence," said Nicole in an interview with Harper's Bazaar. "He has done so through just being very kind to me and understanding me, opening me up to trying things those sorts of things," revealed the Stoker star. Jessica Biel also attended the festival to provide husband Justin Timberlake with some spousal support. The star wore an alluring mid-length strapless Marchesa gown with cream Manolo Blanhik heels for the film premiere. Justin, lead actor in Inside Llewyn Davis, recently said his wife has given him a sense of "stability".

 "She's brought me stability and an inner force," said Justin. "The most important thing for me is that we're able to communicate so well and talk about absolutely everything. It's beautiful to have that kind of closeness and understanding." Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai also made an appearance at the premiere. The Asian film star, 39, looked sensational in a beaded Ellie Saab gown, which was embellished with a gothic floral print and elegantly billowed into a long train.

Aishwarya's daughter Aaradhya has accompanied her on her trip to Cannes. The actress was seen entertaining her beautiful toddler on the balcony of her hotel earlier on in the day.
