Out promoting their latest movie, Reese Witherspoon and Matthew McConaughey attended a photo call for their film, "Mud," at the 65th Cannes International Film Festival on Friday (May 25).

Looking beautiful in black, Reese rocked a bump-hugging simple black dress and hot pink heels while McConaughey looked dapper in a tan suit jacket, black pants and a slightly unbuttoned white undershirt while they posed for awaiting photographers.

The Jeff Nichols directed drama follows two teenage boys who encounter a fugitive and form a pact to help him evade the bounty hunters on his trailer and to reunite him with his true love.

The new flick is set to echo Mark Twain's iconic novel, "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," and for Reese this was something that hit home for her, telling reporters, "I grew up with my brother in a creek on a dirt bike riding around, doing motocross, down in the dirt, fishing in Tennessee, so when I read Jeff's script it just felt like home. I never get to see home on the big movie screen and Jeff brought such an authentic, beautiful story to the place and it was just very appealing for me."
