With a French accent, pixie cut, and Eva Mendes in tow, Kylie Minogue (whose fashion book we recently reported on) returned to film in May with the surreal fantasy “Holy Motors,” which is director Leos Carax’s first film in 13 years. She spoke to ELLE about what it was like to return to the silver screen, debut the flick at Cannes, and watch herself on screen after a successful run in music. “Holy Motors” will be in theaters on November 9. [ELLE]

For the first time in their show’s history, late night funny men Jimmy Fallon and David Letterman taped their respective shows Monday night sans audiences.
