I never want to do the same things twice. I like surprises.
Je crois en Dieu, mais je ne suis pas sûre de lui faire totalement confiance.
Les acteurs qui n'ont jamais connu le succès doivent ressentir un manque.
I don't know where I'm going to be in three years. Because I have the feeling that the future is so full of possibilities, to stop being an actress, to do something else... for me, the future is just a huge bunch of discoveries.
Je deviens une véritable tombe lorsqu'on vient à me parler de ma vie privée. Je n'en lâche pas la moindre parcelle de poussière.
Je suis comme Claudel, je ne crois pas au hasard, je crois aux rencontres.
In France we have a law which doesn't allow the press to publish a photo that you didn't approve. It lets the paparazzi take the picture, but if they publish this picture, you have the choice to sue the newspaper. So me, I always sued them.
I'm not sure I'm quite ready to have someone be a prospector of jobs for me, because I believe there's some kind of destiny involved with meeting people... some things are just meant to happen.
When I wanted to do this job it was for making movies not for the glitter. Of course with the fame I got more offers from different countries so it is great to have huge luxuries for an actor to work and to have the choice. But after, in life, I can't enjoy anonymity. But I can hide myself.
After Amelie was such a huge success that, strangely, I didn't want to do a movie which could be a huge success. I wanted to go and to do something smaller and more discreet.
I wouldn't mind being in an American film for a laugh, but I certainly don't want to be in Thingy Blah Blah 3, if you know what I mean.
People in France are very intrusive when they recognize you. In New York, they are very polite, with quick words, so it's great.
I am, at the end of the day, a French actress. I am not saying I will never shoot an English-language movie again, but my home, my community, my career is rooted in France. I would never move to Los Angeles.
