The actresses came accompanying their husbands to the Saint-Sulpice church in Paris.

Salma Hayek and Carla Bruni were among the mourners at the funeral of former French President Jacques Chirac in Paris on Monday.

Carla attended the funeral at the city’s Saint-Sulpice church with her husband, Chirac’s successor, Nicolas Sarkozy, while Salma arrived with her husband, the French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault.

The service was part of a national day of mourning and took place after a military tribute at the Les Invalides complex, which houses the tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte, chaired by the current president of France, Emmanuel Macron.

Past and present world leaders, including Vladimir Putin and Bill Clinton, were also present, while Prince Edward represented the British royal family.

Chirac, who served as president between 1995 and 2007, died last Thursday at the age of 86, after a long battle with a disease.

In the past, the deceased presidents of France were honored in the famous Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, but the building was devastated by fire earlier this year and is under restoration.
