Bollywood actress Sharmila Tagore, who is a jury member at this year's Cannes Film Festival, hopes to meet 'gorgeous' Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt.

"I adore Brad Pitt. He is gorgeous," the 62-year-old Bollywood actress said.

But Tagore says that being a jury member, her primary focus would be on the films and despite her open admiration for the actor she would not initiate any meeting.

"I am not hankering to meet anyone else except my jury members. Unless he (Pitt) meets me and we really have a chat or something," the actress told a news channel when asked whether she was looking forward to meet the 45-year-old actor.

Pitt, who stars in Quentin Tarantino's World War II drama Inglorious Basterds, is expected to walk the red carpet at the French film festival.

After Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Nandita Das, Sharmila Tagore is the third Indian actress to be a part of the prestigious Cannes jury.

Tagore said that she was enjoying the experience.

"Cannes is a wonderful blend of quality and glamour, which makes it so unique. There are some very good and artistic films and it gives recognition to unknown directors," said the actress.
