And that's how you have to be smart, are you believable in this part or aren't you believable. And it has nothing to do with your talent.
And that's how the world, I think, imagines French women--you know, like very womanly and seducing men and that's how they like to imagine them.
[about writing an autobiographical novel, "Telling Lies", in 2001] It's so attractive, too attractive. Your writing becomes more real than your reality. Acting is contained--you act for three months, then leave it--but writing is the act of creation. Writing is dangerous.
[after hearing that Leonardo DiCaprio is a big fan] What is he, 13 or 11? Perhaps I could play his nanny.
I hate those kisses, you know, American kisses, with the tongues out. They're disgusting. I can't look, it's like porno!
I need the seasons to live to the rhythm of rain and sun. In town, It's like you can hardly make the difference between night and day.
Acting is wonderful therapy for people. Instead of suffering for yourself, someone will do it for you.
