Hillary Clinton may have been the 2016 presidential candidate, the former first lady and US secretary of state, but now she’s making the rounds in the film industry.
The 74-year-old made a rare appearance at the Venice Film Festival on Wednesday and her presence baffled some, who wondered why she was there.
Clinton posed on the red carpet for the premiere of director Noah Baumbach’s upcoming Netflix movie “White Noise.” She ditched her usual pantsuit look and instead donned a sky blue kaftan and shiny flats for the evening.
Many didn’t understand why she was there, but rumors swirled that it was due to her connection to Netflix. The streaming giant is also leading the Clinton and daughter Chelsea documentary, “In Her Hands.” The project will be the first from the Clintons’ new production company, HiddenLight Productions.
On social media, users seemed amazed at Clinton’s emergence. ‘Completely useless in a time of homelessness and mass death,’ someone snapped in the eye
Completely unnecessary in a era of mass homelessness and death 😒 https://t.co/ioyxrf34yg— Peter Dale Thrash Metal (@peter_thrash) September 1, 2022
“I feel like Hillary Clinton would walk out of a screening at the Venice Film Festival and nod her head that the movie was really well shot,” one fan said.

“In Her Hands” is set to debut at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on September 9 and hits Netflix and select theaters November 16.
However, a Netflix representative revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that Clinton’s arrival had nothing to do with the documentary.
“Hillary was the festival guest for the opening night. It’s not our doing, but of course we’re working with her on ‘In Her Hands,'” the Netflix rep noted.
Chelsea, 42, and her mother are also set to attend and speak at TIFF later this month for their other HiddenLight series, “Gutsy.”
The Apple TV+ docuseries features candid conversations with powerful women like Megan Thee Stallion, Gloria Steinem, Jane Goodall, Wanda Sykes and Amy Schumer.
As for Baumbach’s buzzy flick, “White Noise” is an apocalyptic dark comedy starring Greta Gerwig and Adam Driver, which will hit theaters in November and premiere on Netflix on December 30.
