The actor, who rose to fame with her popular Twilight film series, is part of the first female-dominated Cannes Film Festival jury for many decades now.

Well, this year Kristen put her money where her mouth is and literally kicked off her heels in front of the world's media. The film, by Spike Lee, stars Corey Hawkins and Topher Grace and takes on the checkered history of the Ku Klux Klan.

Palestinian filmmaker Annemarie Jacir led a rally at the Cannes Film Festival yesterday to show solidarity with the 60 people killed in the Gaza protests, on the same day as the opening of the United States embassy in Jerusalem.

Issa held a sign that read "Stop the Attack on Gaza" as she walked the red carpet ahead of the film's premiere.

"If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you can't ask me either", she told The Hollywood Reporter. Kristen Stewart protested by removing her shoes.

"It has become really obvious that if [a man and I] were walking the red carpet together and someone stopped me and said, 'Excuse me, young lady, you're not wearing heels". It's just like you simply can not ask me to do something that you are not asking him [to do].

"People get very upset if you don't wear heels or whatever".

Kristen Stewart told the Hollywood Reporter previous year:"If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you can not ask me either".

Back in 2015, a group of well-dressed women was denied entry into a screening at the prestigious festival thanks to their choice of flat shoes.

"We shouldn't be wearing high heels anyway", she added.

Kristen Stewart is not one to be fenced in.

He is the first African-American detective on the Colorado Springs Police Department, played by Washington, and sets out to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan and expose it while posing as a racist extremist.
