Michael KORS has told a Spanish newspaper that he is not afraid to be criticised for wearing the iconic eyewash at the Cannes Film Festival.
Kors, who stars in the film The Imitation Game, has not worn a hijab at Cannes in 12 years, but he said in a new interview with El Mundo newspaper that the film has caused a “huge amount of controversy” in the Muslim world.
The interview was published on Tuesday (local time) in the newspaper, and the headline was “The biggest controversy in cinema history”.
The film has been criticised by some of its critics and is due to open in cinemas in the coming weeks.
It is the latest in a series of films to be censored by the Spanish government, including The Queen of Katwe, The Man Who Would Be Queen and The Queen’s Brother.
“There is a lot of pressure in the Islamic world on young women,” Kors said.
“They are trying to say that I have no right to be here.” “
In the interview, published on the eve of the opening of the film, Kors also said that he had no problem with the hijab being worn by women in his film. “

“I do not have any problems with it,” he said.
He said that, in a similar way, his films were not meant to be provocative.
“When I am working, I am careful to wear the hijab,” he added.
“You cannot make a film about me and not wear it.”
