What I love most about this crazy life is the adventure of it.
I live for the present always. I accept this risk. I don't deny the past, but it's a page to turn.
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.
The best mother is the mother who adapts, and the best children are the children who adapt as well.
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.
Fighting the ageing process just doesn't work. I think that actresses, ultimately, are responsible for the faces we give to women.
My aim was never to be an American star; otherwise, I would have moved to Los Angeles.
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.
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.
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.
My ambition is to have beautiful encounters, not to make money.
My only ambition is to be true every moment I am living.
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.
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.
Acting is like peeling an onion. You have to peel away each layer to reveal another.
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.
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 move on stage differently. The more you act, anyway, the more you live, your perception of life becomes more and more accurate.
When you make a film, it's a bet. You don't know how the film is going to be, anyway.
