Jessica Chastain - Jessica Chastain To Host Special Cleopatra Screening

Actress Jessica Chastain is teaming up with the children of Dame Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton to host a special screening of the Hollywood stars' classic Cleopatra at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival in France.

Taylor's son Christopher Wilding and Burton's daughter Kate Burton will unveil a restored version of the film at the special event on 21 May (13) to mark Cleopatra's 50th anniversary.

Wilding, who often visited his mother on the set of the 1963 historical epic, says, "My mother would have been thrilled about this spectacular celebration of Cleopatra's anniversary."

Jewellery purchased from the late actress' estate, including a hand-held gold and turquoise mirror featured in Cleopatra, will be on display, while Chastain will model the famous emerald and diamond necklace Burton gave Taylor during the three-year production in Rome, Italy.

Italian jewellers at Bulgari are also debuting a piece inspired by Taylor, which will be auctioned off later this year (13) to benefit the star's Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.
