According to Variety, the Maleficent star fainted at the Chopard Trophee dinner, while Festival director Thierry Fremaux was introducing actor Francois Civil onstage.

Elle suddenly collapsed and fell off her chair, but thankfully her famous sister Dakota was there to help her up – and the pair were swiftly escorted out.
