The Story Of My Wife is an adaptation of Milan Fust’s 1942 novel. The story is set in the 1920s and sees sea captain Jakob Storr makes a bet with a friend that he will marry the first woman who enters the cafe they are sat in – just as character Lizzy arrives, according to Variety.

The novel was first published in Hungary in 1942, but not translated into English until the late 1980s.

Lea Seydoux plays the lead role of Lizzy, however she has tested positive for Covid-19 and according to a report from Variety on Saturday, the Blue is the Warmest Colour star, 36, got the virus on set of her new film despite having both doses of the vaccine and being asymptomatic. 

A spokesperson for Lea confirmed to the publication that she had tested positive for the virus, and stated she will remain in quarantine until her doctors have advised her it is safe for her to travel.

As Lea now has to remain in self-isolation at her home in Paris, she has not been able to attend the premiere for The French Dispatch on July 12.

The actress also has three other films that are screening at the festival: The Story Of My Wife, France, and Deception. 

It is unclear which film set Lea was working on when she contracted the virus, as she is said to be in pre-production for two films, Crimes of the Future and Le Bal des Folles. 

MailOnline has contacted Lea’s representatives for further comment at the time. 

Cannes Film Festival’s general secretary Francois Desrousseaux informed Variety that those attending the festival are tested on a daily basis, and an average of three people per day have been positive cases.
