Bill Murray seems to be indulging in the local nightlife while in France for the Cannes Film Festival.

Murray, 61, and director Wes Anderson arrived at the Hotel Martinez bar shortly after 1 a.m. Thursday evening. Murray in particular appeared to be thoroughly enjoying himself (and some drinks!), flirting with a woman at the bar and singing along with a piano player.

The actor was heard telling the object of his affection that he planned to give her a kiss at midnight, before realizing it was already the wee hours of the morning.

Around 3:30 a.m., Murray, still in very lively spirits, closed out the evening by paying tribute to his hometown and accompanying the pianist for a rendition of “Sweet Home Chicago.” – Mary Green
