Radha Mitchell will forever be in SIR Mick Jagger's debt, after the Rolling Stones star persuaded French customs officials to let her into the country to attend the Cannes Film Festival.
The Australian actress had landed at Nice airport to attend the event a few years ago - but she'd forgotten her visa and was quickly ushered into a security room for an interrogation.
When Mitchell spotted Jagger, she introduced herself and told the Brown Sugar rocker of her predicament, at which point the singer decided to exert his influence on the French officials.
Mitchell recalls, "They put me in a security room at the airport and there was Mick. I introduced myself, and somehow he took mercy on me.
"He spoke to the officials in French and they let me go."
