Chris O'Dowd has recalled how he was told off for dancing down the red carpet at The Sapphires's Cannes Film Festival premiere.
The Bridesmaids star, who plays band manager Dave Lovelace in the comedy-drama, told Digital Spy that he was chastised by the head of the festival for his moves to 'Soul Man'.
"It was the first film festival I've ever been at and we were walking down the red carpet - Wayne Blair and I - hundreds of flashing lightbulbs and they put on 'Soul Man', the song I enter the film to - a great Sam and Dave track", he said.
"The music took me! I started doing a few steps, the odd twirl. The head of the festival came over and said, 'Stop dancing, this is Cannes!' That put a full stop on it. I'll never trust the French again!"
The Sapphires, which is based on a true story, follows an Australian girl group who tour Vietnam during the '60s.
Asked which songs were playing on their iPods currently, the film's cast - including Jessica Mauboy, Deborah Mailman, Miranda Tapsell and Shari Sebbens - named classic tracks from Solomon Burke and Ottis Reading among others.
"I'm listening to some white-ass soul at the moment," said O'Dowd. "A bit of Joe Cocker, 'Bye, Bye, Blackbird', 'Have a Little Faith in Me'. Also loads of Solomon Burke stuff, 'These Arms of Mine'."
Mauboy added: "I love my '90s music, I'm very stuck in that at the moment. But also Frank Ocean."
Tapsell revealed that her current listening is from her "hairbrush music" playlist, saying: "I sing along to Jon Bon Jovi and Aerosmith, all those big power ballads."
The Sapphire opens in UK cinemas on November 7.
