During a press conference at the Cannes Film Festival, the directors of Cate Blanchett‘s new film Rumors confirmed that the movie took its name from the iconic Fleetwood Mac album.

Guy Maddin, Evan Johnson and Galen Johnson co-directed “Rumours,” which premiered on Saturday night (May 19). The film earned a four-minute standing ovation as Blanchett blew kisses to the crowd.

“I did confirm something with Galen last night, and it’s weird that it never came up in rehearsal, which is: ‘Why the hell is this movie called Rumours?'” Blanchett said at the press event. “And my husband had said, ‘Is that after the Fleetwood Mac album?’ And you said, ‘Yes it was.'”

Galen said that the directors were looking at a “list of 10 best album names and ‘Rumours’ was on there and we liked that name.”

“‘Rumours’ the album was famously creatively fraught and everyone was sleeping with each other, so it made sense to us,” he continued. “No one questioned it. We thought people, producers and financiers, would be like, ‘Why “Rumours”?’ But no one ever questioned it, so it just made the title.”

In addition to Blanchett, “Rumours” also stars Alicia Vikander, Charles Dance, Roy Dupuis, Denis Ménochet, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Rolando Ravello, Takehiro Hira and Zlatko Buric.
