Coincidence? Jewel Heist in Cannes During Bling Ring Screening

Last night in Cannes, more than $1 million worth of jewelry was stolen from a hotel room. The New York Times reports that the jewels were meant to be lent to movie stars during the film festival.

The jewels were in the safe of the room rented by an employee of Chopard, a luxury jeweler, the source said on condition of anonymity.

Guess what else happened last night in Cannes? The premiere of Sofia Coppola's new film, The Bling Ring. You know, the one about JEWEL THIEVES. Coincidence? I think not.

P.S.: The Bling Ring made Paris Hilton cry.
