Christoph Waltz shots fired during cannes interview

Oscar winning actor Christoph Waltz was left shaken tonight after a man pointed a hand-gun at him during a live TV show and threatened to blow up a studio with a hand grenade.

Waltz was on the set of a French news program called Le Grand Journal when the shots were fired, and security whisked him off stage. The rest of the audience rushed the set in panic.

Witnesses are saying they came from a man with a gun. There are reports the shots fired were blanks.

The man has since been apprehended by police. No one was injured.

It's been a crazy day at Cannes -- last night, a jewelry company was robbed while hosting a fancy ball at the film festival ... thieves reportedly stole $1 million worth of jewelry.
