The Cannes Film Festival has a way of bringing everyone who’s anyone together in a celebration of cinema. It’s also known for some pretty great after-parties. Big names like Johnny Depp, Harrison Ford, Elle Fanning, and more graced the red carpet this week in France. While the star-studded luxury parties are full of the potential for viral moments, one fan-favorite interaction stands out from the rest.

Brie Larson and Michelle Yeoh, two powerhouse actresses associated with The Walt Disney Company, were clearly living their best lives one night at a dinner after the film screenings.

Larson and Yeoh found each other on the dance floor during Kering’s 2023 Women in Motion dinner.

The ladies literally are standing on their chairs in excitement as they freestyle dance to the live saxophone! Yeoh shows off her long white gloves with a champagne glass in hand. This is what it must be like to live like a true goddess. Larson matches her energy and takes out her phone for a moment to record the magical atmosphere.

Both ladies shared their admiration for each other and their dance connection the next day on their personal Instagram accounts. Larson posted the video with the caption, “Dancing with THE QUEEN @michelleyeoh_official at the Women in Motion Dinner.” Michelle posted the video as well, saying, “So happy to meet @brielarson finally and we had so much fun last night.”

Thanks, Brie and Michelle for the wholesome moment we didn’t know we needed!

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
