P Diddy

Although he is famous for his bling and big entourage, P Diddy has ditched both at the Cannes film festival.

“No private jet,” he told 'Access Hollywood'. “A lot of directors and producers, they don’t want to deal with my entourage, so it’s just showing that I can commit being taken seriously as an actor, so I’m flying by myself.”

However, Diddy does take a few precautions while flying with the general public.

“I put the blanket over my head because I’m famous,” he explained. “I wait until everybody goes in and then I walk in with the blanket over my head, I sit down, I cover up and that’s a wrap.”

Diddy is at Cannes to network and also to promote his film 'A Raisin In The Sun' which is coming out on DVD.
