Cannes 2015: Gus Van Sant not too fazed by harsh reviews on ‘The Sea of Trees’.

Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey has brushed aside criticism of his new movie “The Sea of Trees” at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival. (Source: AP) Reviews for the film, which also stars Naomi Watts and Ken Watanabe, have also been fairly negative, with the Guardian’s one-star review calling it “a fantastically annoying and dishonest tear-jerker”. The “Dallas Buyers Club” star has defended his audience’s decision to express their opinion after his latest movie “The Sea of Trees” co-starring Naomi Watts was booed following its debut at the Cannes International Film Festival yesterday (15.05.15). Speaking to journalists, Van Sant said, “I read one review this morning and it was very definitive, I was imagining everyone was the same as this person so I thought, ‘Now we know where we stand,’ which was kind of nice.” Referring to the 2003 festival, he continued, “There was apparently some kind of fight after the Elephant screening, like fisticuffs over whether it was good or bad, which I thought was interesting.” Anyone has as much right to boo as they do to ovate.” While the 45-year-old star’s latest offering may have not received the praise he was hoping for, Matthew will be able to brush of his critics and return to his wife Camila Alves and children Levi, six, Vida, five, and Livingston, two, whom he credits with making him happy every single day. He explained: “I get to wake up next to someone who I know loves me the way she does – my wife – who gave birth to our three beautiful, healthy children.
