Cannes chief ensures Woody Allen was 'okay' with rape joke

Paris, May 13 : Cannes Film Festival chief Thierry Fremaux was concerned enough about French comedian Laurent Lafitte's rape joke on the opening night of the gala that he immediately approached Woody Allen after the ceremony to make sure he wasn't offended.

Lafitte drew gasps from the audience with the joke that referred to the sexual assault allegations against the 80-year-old, who is in France to promote his film "Cafe Society".
