In a statement to Variety, Lea shared her regrets about missing the festival.

“Sadly, I have to self-quarantine in Paris and won’t be able to attend the Cannes Film Festival this year,” Lea shared. “I wish I could celebrate the return of cinema to my favorite festival, but it is in everyone’s best interest to err on the side of caution and do my part to keep everyone safe and healthy.”

She added, “I applaud all four of my directors and the cast ensembles for their remarkable achievements. From a distance and in thoughts, I am with you with all my heart.”

Lea had tested positive for COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated and asymptomatic.
