Casey Affleck, 46, shares a passionate kiss with glamorous bride Caylee Cowan, 24, as they wrap up their engagements in Cannes at the amFAR Gala.
The romantic backdrop seemed to work its magic on Casey Affleck and his young girlfriend as they appeared in South France Thursday night.
The Oscar-winning Affleck was joined by his partner Caylee Cowan on the carefully manicured grounds of the Cannes hotspot Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc ahead of the annual amFAR gala.
Posing for photos, the actor-director leaned in to plant a kiss on the perfectly painted lips of Cowan, who at 24 is 22 years younger than her 46-year-old boyfriend.
The actress looked typically stunning in a classically designed lace gown complete with a cleavage-enhancing semi-sheer bodice as she joined Affleck for his latest social engagement in Cannes.
