Attraction is beyond our will or ideas sometimes.
I've played journalists before, and I have good friends who are journalists. I think being an actor is not very far from being a journalist. Because you investigate, you try to understand, you're asking questions, you're interested in the other.
Sometimes I call directors. Sometimes I just meet with them. It just happens. It's not that I'm pushy. It comes naturally. But I go ahead. I don't stay in my armchair, waiting for the phone to ring.
In a building with apartments, of course, you want to make connections. Life is easier that way. There's salt if you don't have salt; you can knock at someone's door, like in any city. But you know, you can hear the others, and you want to sleep, you get annoyed.
When you make a film, it's a bet. You don't know how the film is going to be, anyway.
I move on stage differently. The more you act, anyway, the more you live, your perception of life becomes more and more accurate.
If you told me tomorrow that I couldn't act anymore, it wouldn't bother me. I have only one wish: to meet the man of my life.
I don't like films giving me answers. I like films that are provoking me, that are making me feel not only being in an easy place.
Acting is like peeling an onion. You have to peel away each layer to reveal another.
My aim was never to be an American star; otherwise, I would have moved to Los Angeles.
But, you know, when I choose a film I need to believe in it and believe I can do something special with it, and after a while that means not trying to judge or analyze why I should do it. You have to follow this intuition thing, which is a mystery to me.
My only ambition is to be true every moment I am living.
My ambition is to have beautiful encounters, not to make money.
It's not a struggle to be on a diet. You feel lighter, and your spirit is lighter, too. But I love chocolate, and I allow myself to have chocolate. That doesn't go against a diet for me.
I want to know why I'm alive. I want to understand. It's like exploration; it's like someone being interested in a place and its history, digging into the earth and looking for it, searching - it's a passion.
I never really worked in Hollywood. Some American producers came to Europe to shoot films with me, so it's a different situation... It was not my aim.
Fighting the ageing process just doesn't work. I think that actresses, ultimately, are responsible for the faces we give to women.
What I love most about this crazy life is the adventure of it.
Some words, you know, it's amazing but some words would come only in French, and when I speak French, it would only come in English. And so the adjustment is very difficult sometimes.
The best mother is the mother who adapts, and the best children are the children who adapt as well.
Movies are open doors, and at every door, I change character and life... I live for the present always. I accept this risk. I don't deny the past, but it's a page to turn.
