Marion Cotillard will once again be Joan of Arc next summer

Marion Cotillard will once again be on stage next summer incarnating French heroin Jeanne d’Arc in Jeanne D’Arc au Bûcher. This time, the oratorio will be shown in the German city of Frankfurt. You can check here for more information on the performances and on how to get tickets. Don’t miss it if you can help it. I went last year to one of the Paris performances and it is absolutely stunning!

Thank you, Mia, for the heads up on this!

Marion in Jeanne d’Arc Au Bûcher

Marion in Jeanne d’Arc Au Bûcher

On the 4th and 5th of March, and after two performances earlier in both Monaco and Toulouse, Marion took to the stage in Paris, to give life to Joan of Arc, in an oratorio she had performed twice before in 2005 and 2012, Jeanne d’Arc Au Bûcher by Honegger. The performance was slightly different than those of the previous years. The oratorio was staged like a play instead of having the actors speak their lines in front of the orchestra.

There were costumes, more actors than the previous ones and even the stake was present in this version. Directed by Côme de Bellescize, the oratorio counts with beautiful music and angelic voices from the choir as Marion delivers her lines. I was lucky enough to see it on the 4th of March and sit insanely close to the stage and I can tell you it was beyond stunning. Marion delivered a beautiful performance, as did everyone else involved, the entire thing gave me chills. Bravo to all involved!

The oratorio goes to New York in June and Marion will be performing it four nights in a row. If you can, don’t miss it. It’s truly a brilliant experience.

I have added photos of the performance to the gallery and found an interview Marion Cotillard gave while performing in Toulouse in February. Be sure to check it out.

Jeanne au Bûcher to be released on DVD in March

Jeanne au Bûcher to be released on DVD in March

I just found out that Marion’s performance in Barcelona of  Jeanne au Bûcher (Joan at the Stake) is going to be released on DVD on March 10. Although the video was released at the time, this is a great opportunity to watch and rewatch Marion’s outstanding performance as Joan of Arc.

Pre order the DVD on Amazon France.

Marion has several performances scheduled as Joan of Arc this year. She performed in Monaco and Toulouse on the 8th and 14th of February, respectively. She will resume her performances in Paris on the 4th and 5th of March and then go on to perform in New York City in June. If you can, don’t miss it. It’s a brilliant performance. I’ll be attending the one on the 4th in Paris and will report back!

 

Marion Cotillard : J’ai toujours peur de décevoir

Marion Cotillard : J’ai toujours peur de décevoir

Le destin, qui sait être clément à l’occasion, a décidé qu’elle serait l’Élue. Tous les storytellers qui tricotent des légendes au kilomètre peuvent rentrer se coucher : chez Marion Cotillard, le mythe s’accommode fort bien de la réalité. C’est une météorite qui traverse le ciel étoilé du cinéma sans qu’aucun satellite n’entrave sa course. Actrice française, star hollywoodienne, sa carrière internationale est sans équivalent.
Ce matin-là, elle nous reçoit simplement chez elle, quelque part sur la rive gauche. « Je ne vis pas à Los Angeles », souligne-t-elle malicieusement. Dans le salon, l’arbre de Noël a été épargné, un souhait de Marcel, son fils, bientôt 4 ans – une merveille -, qui rentre du judo et joue dans sa chambre avec des éléphants en peluche.

Ce n’est pas l’égérie magnétique de la maison Dior qu’on a sous les yeux, mais une femme qui, par ailleurs, est mère de famille et star de cinéma. Marion Cotillard ôte ses Veja (des baskets écologiquement correctes) et s’installe sur son canapé gris. On s’attarde sur ce visage si expressif qu’il a envoûté James Gray ou Christopher Nolan, beauté mélancolique avec ce teint opalescent et ses yeux qui, face à une fenêtre, virent au bleu marine.

Aujourd’hui, l’agenda de l’actrice est plus rempli que celui de l’ambassadeur d’une grande puissance : dans une semaine, elle fera le grand écart entre Paris et Hollywood, ses deux pôles d’attraction. Elle est nommée à la fois aux césar et aux oscars pour Deux Jours, une nuit, le film belge des frères Dardenne, qui commença son voyage au dernier Festival de Cannes. Rien n’est plus vraiment étonnant dans l’itinéraire stratosphérique de Marion Cotillard, dont les rebondissements forcent l’admiration. Aux États-Unis, elle est vénérée – le mot n’est pas trop fort. Elle a réussi l’impossible tour de force : faire oublier qu’elle est française et prétendre à des rôles habituellement dévolus aux stars américaines de la liste A.

Rien aujourd’hui ne semble lui faire peur. Elle vient d’être Lady Macbeth auprès de Michael Fassbender (Macbeth, de Justin Kurzel, probablement au prochain Festival de Cannes) et tournera dès juillet Mal de pierres, de Nicole Garcia. Entre-temps, elle sera Jeanne d’Arc dans Jeanne d’Arc au bûcher, l’oratorio d’Arthur Honegger, dans une version scénique qui constitue l’événement de la Philharmonie de Paris les 4 et 5 mars prochains, avant de voyager jusqu’au Lincoln Center à New York. Rencontre avec un prodige.

Les photos d’Alex Prager pour Madame Figaro révèlent une nouvelle facette de votre beauté. Quel rapport entretenez-vous avec cette Marion Cotillard-là, objet d’art et objet de beauté ?

J’ai un visage très mobile, très mouvant, très fluctuant. C’est parfait pour le cinéma, mais je ne suis pas un canon de beauté, ce n’est pas si difficile de me rendre laide. Je ne sais absolument pas parler de beauté, ou d’une beauté présumée qu’on m’attribuerait. Quand on me rencontre, personne ne pense : « Elle est splendide. » Je ne suis pas définie par mon physique. Je ne suis pas Monica Bellucci, dont la beauté est si étonnante qu’elle a dû forcément conditionner sa vie et son rapport avec les autres. Chez les actrices, j’aime les physiques singuliers et lumineux. Celui d’Ana Girardot. Celui de Meryl Streep. Je trouve Penélope Cruz sublimissime et Jessica Chastain aussi : j’adore les rousses. Angelina Jolie, que j’ai croisée quelquefois, est superbe mais c’est une beauté un peu trop impressionnante. Celle que je trouve époustouflante, c’est Charlotte Casiraghi. La première fois que j’ai dîné avec elle, je ne pouvais pas détacher mon regard de son visage. Bien sûr, il y a les choses qui vont avec : l’intelligence, la simplicité, la vivacité, la gentillesse. Tout cela transcende et démultiplie la beauté.

Les Américains considèrent que vous rayonnez de la photogénie des stars de l’âge d’or hollywoodien…

Ce qui est exact, c’est qu’ils ne m’ont encore jamais proposé un rôle où je suis dépouillée de tout artifice. Peut-être dans The Immigrant, de James Gray, où je portais très peu de maquillage, mais c’est un peu particulier, c’est un film en costumes. À l’inverse, dans Deux Jours, une nuit, Sandra, mon personnage, affronte la vie le visage nu. C’est une de mes plus belles expériences. Une expérience unique. Avec les frères Dardenne, j’étais au-delà de la confiance : c’était une communion, une fusion même. Dans un autre genre, je me suis beaucoup plu dans De rouille et d’os, de Jacques Audiard. C’est mon rôle le plus sexy, le plus charnel. Une fille lumineuse comme je les aime.

Avez-vous un regret concernant ce parcours exceptionnel ?

Ne pas avoir tourné avec Patrice Chéreau. Sa mort a brisé mon cœur d’actrice, j’ai ressenti une peine immense. Je pensais à cette expérience dont j’avais si souvent rêvé et que je ne vivrais jamais. C’était un des plus grands. Son film Intimité, mon préféré, est un chef-d’œuvre.

Vous voilà en lice pour un deuxième oscar, une première pour une actrice française.

Que je sois nommée pour un film belge est fou. C’est vraiment une surprise, je n’ai pas fait de campagne,je ne pensais même pas être envisagée comme un outsider. Je suis convaincue que c’est Julianne Moore qui va l’emporter – c’est sa cinquième nomination et elle est remarquable dans Still Alice -, mais je suis tellement heureuse d’emmener le film des Dardenne à Hollywood ! Et puis ce qui me fait plaisir, c’est que les membres de l’Académie considèrent mon travail. Le week-end du 20 février s’annonce mouvementé, il y a les césars à Paris puis les oscars à Los Angeles, et, entre ces deux cérémonies, les Independent Spirit Awards, où je suis nommée pour The Immigrant. Il est prévu que je me prépare dans l’avion et que je fasse un stop dans une chambre d’hôtel sur le chemin pour passer ma robe…

Que vous inspirent ces nominations multiples ?

Même si je ne le vis pas comme ça, il s’agit bel et bien d’une compétition. Mais, contrairement à une compétition sportive, une compétition d’artistes, ça n’a pas véritablement de sens. Ainsi, comment comparer Deneuve et Binoche, deux magnifiques actrices, toutes deux nommées aux césars ? Comment expliquer que Céline Sallette, époustouflante dans Geronimo, ne soit pas mentionnée ? Mais c’est le jeu bien sûr, un jeu totalement paradoxal, avec d’un côté cette compétition entre des actrices qui ont peu à voir les unes avec les autres, et de l’autre une reconnaissance magnifique par les pairs du métier. Je suis fière et heureuse de me retrouver avec toutes ces belles actrices.

Comment gérez-vous ce tourbillon de succès et toutes les contraintes qu’il impose ?

J’essaie de faire du mieux que je peux. Je mène une vie assez particulière, mais dans cette particularité, j’ai la chance de ressentir beaucoup de joie. Je ne peux me plaindre de rien.

Avez-vous atteint une plénitude en tant que femme ?

Pas encore. Une actrice est un animal très particulier ! Quand j’ai commencé ce métier, je n’assumais pas du tout ce besoin de reconnaissance et l’envie d’être aimée. Je vis mieux avec aujourd’hui, mais je suis encore loin de ne plus désirer cela, encore loin de cette sagesse.

N’est-il pas naturel d’avoir envie d’être aimée ?

Être aimée, oui sûrement, mais je pense que le besoin de reconnaissance est une pathologie qu’il est impossible d’assouvir totalement. Et j’ai toujours peur de décevoir. Cette insécurité, propre à toutes les actrices, crée parfois des tensions. J’ai reçu beaucoup de reconnaissance, plus que je ne l’aurais imaginé. Mais en fait, aucune récompense ne peut véritablement assouvir ce besoin, disons que cela donne une assurance éphémère. Seul un travail sur soi afin de trouver l’origine de ce besoin peut en venir à bout.

Qu’est-ce qui vous apaise ?

Mes proches. Et des gens comme Pierre Rabhi, un altruiste, l’une des plus belles personnes que j’aie dans ma vie.

Et la création sans doute. Actrice, musicienne, récitante dans un oratorio… La réalisation vous tente-t-elle, comme beaucoup de vos consœurs ?

J’ai besoin de m’exprimer. La réalisation permet d’être entièrement maître d’un processus et d’un objet créatif. Cela n’est pas complètement possible lorsqu’on est actrice. J’ai coréalisé avec Eliott Bliss le dernier clip de la campagne Dior. J’ai adoré ça. Le résultat me ressemble. Oui, j’ai envie de réaliser, de filmer, de diriger des actrices et des acteurs. Je le ferai un jour. J’ai échangé avec Robin Wright, qui a signé quelques épisodes de House of Cards, elle en parle d’une manière enflammée.

Avant cela, vous aurez tourné avec Nicole Garcia…

J’ai toujours aimé cette femme. Pourtant, lorsque j’ai reçu le scénario du film (Mal de pierres, NDLR), j’ai résisté. C’était pendant le tournage de Macbeth et, le film terminé, je ne voulais pas être habitée par un autre personnage. Mes rôles m’envahissent et m’empêchent de vivre pleinement ma vie. D’autant plus que je choisis rarement des histoires légères.Et Macbeth était tellement sombre. Donc, j’avais décidé de reprendre le contrôle de ma vie, de n’appartenir qu’à moi quelque temps. Et puis j’ai lu deux pages et j’ai été embarquée. Dans ma tête, le travail a déjà commencé, au-delà de ma volonté…

 

Jeanne d’Arc revue par Alex Prager

« Quand j’ai découvert Alex Prager, j’ai été immédiatement séduite par son travail, qui me rappelle par certains aspects celui de Martin Parr, dont je suis fan. C’est plus qu’une photographe, c’est une artiste qui met véritablement en scène ses images. Lorsque je lui ai parlé de l’oratorio d’Honegger, nous sommes tombées d’accord sur le principe d’une évocation de Jeanne d’Arc : c’est la direction de l’inspiration. Je n’aime faire des photos que lorsqu’il y a quelque chose à raconter, ou une histoire à me raconter. Alex Prager m’a dirigée comme un metteur en scène. Elle me disait : “Tu es dans tel état d’esprit”, ou “Ton armée est derrière toi”. Elle choisit tout, contrôle tout, coiffure – je porte une perruque -, maquillage  et stylisme. Au make-up, elle inspectait même  la pose du mascara ! Elle est d’une précision absolue. On a shooté dans une vallée près de  Los Angeles, j’avais l’impression qu’on tournait  un film avec des effets spéciaux, et même du feu : des rampes, des bonbonnes de gaz…, tout  cet environnement était très inspirant. J’ai besoin de ressentir une très forte connexion avec  le photographe pour réussir des images. Sinon, il n’y a rien dans le regard et tout est à jeter. »

Marion Cotillard on Her ‘Two Days, One Night’ Role: ‘I Had Written Her Whole Life Before We Meet Her’

Marion Cotillard on Her ‘Two Days, One Night’ Role: ‘I Had Written Her Whole Life Before We Meet Her’

It is the voice — lilting, lightly French-accented — that one notices first, even before fully registering the famous face. You notice it because, in the movies, Marion Cotillard so rarely sounds like herself, whether affecting Edith Piaf’s nasal warble in her Oscar-winning performance in “La Vie en Rose,” the Polish dialect of the 1920s Ellis Island emigre in director James Gray’s “The Immigrant,” or her Belgian regional accent as a downsized factory worker in Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne’s “Two Days, One Night,” which premieres this week in competition at the 67th Cannes Film Festival.

If voice is one of an actor’s most valuable instruments, Cotillard plays hers like a first-chair virtuoso. Early in the shooting of “The Immigrant” (which debuts in the U.S. May 16), Gray asked Polish actress Maja Wampuszyc, who plays Cotillard’s aunt in the film, to evaluate the French actress’s command of Wampuszyc’s native language. “She said, ‘Well, it’s excellent, but it has a very German inflection,’ ” Gray recalls. “So I told Marion this and she said, ‘I’m doing that on purpose because my character is from Silesia, which is between what was then Germany and Poland.’ ” After that, Gray stopped asking questions.

The 38-year-old Cotillard is that rare combination of movie star and chameleonic character actor — a shape-shifter who disappears as completely into her roles as a Meryl Streep or a Daniel Day-Lewis (whose long-suffering wife Cotillard played in the musical “Nine”) — while remaining in demand as an icon of timeless Parisian glamour. In the more than 40 films she has made since her 1994 screen debut, the actress has seemed equally comfortable inhabiting the skin of a WWI Corsican courtesan (in Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s “A Very Long Engagement”), a 1930s Chicago gangster’s moll (in Michael Mann’s “Public Enemies”) or a 21st-century epidemiologist (in Steven Soderbergh’s “Contagion”). She was tough yet heartbreaking in one of her most celebrated roles, as a killer-whale trainer who loses both her legs in a workplace accident in Jacques Audiard’s “Rust and Bone.” And she brought a tragic human dimension to the high-tech mind games of Christopher Nolan’s “Inception” as the ghostly wife forever trapped in Leonardo DiCaprio’s memory machine.

“What I saw in Marion, and which is so rare, is that her charisma, her presence, combines the exotic with the accessible,” says Nolan, who went on to cast Cotillard again in “The Dark Knight Rises,” even retooling the shooting schedule to accommodate the then-pregnant actress (who lives in Paris with French actor-director Guillaume Canet, her partner since 2007).

In “Two Days, One Night,” she is someone else entirely: an ordinary working-class woman struggling to survive in a recession. It is, by Cotillard’s own admission, a curious piece of casting. The Dardenne brothers, among the most honored filmmakers of their generation — especially at Cannes, where they have twice won the festival’s coveted Palme d’Or — have created their distinctive cinematic universe without ever venturing far from the Belgian industrial town of Seraing, the setting for nearly all their films since their 1996 breakthrough “La Promesse.” Typically, they populate their casts with a mix of local actors, nonprofessionals and newcomers. “Two Days” marks the first time they’ve cast a performer of Cotillard’s international stature — or anyone who has acted opposite Batman.

When the actress, who got to know the Dardennes during the filming of “Rust and Bone” (which they co-produced), first learned they wanted her for their next project, she worried that the movie might be a departure from their established milieu. “I was secretly hoping that it was not different; I was hoping that I would have to go to Seraing,” she says as she relaxes into an armchair in her suite at the Trump Soho hotel, and tucks her dark brown hair neatly behind her ears. “When I started to read the script and I found out that it was actually the same kind of movie, I was very, very happy. And I felt that they’re very hard workers, because to reach this level of authenticity, you have to work a lot.”

That work entailed a month of rehearsals on location followed by a demanding shoot in which Cotillard experienced firsthand the Dardennes’ reputation for putting actors through extensive takes. The brothers favor shooting scenes in uninterrupted sequence shots lasting as long as five, six or seven minutes each. “Let’s say you have a seven-minute sequence shot and everything is going well, and then at 6:39 or even 6:49, something goes wrong and you have to start over again,” Cotillard explains. “That causes a lot of takes.” On the second day of shooting, she snapped a photo of the clapboard when the take count on one scene reached 56. On the fifth day, she took another photo as the takes for another scene climbed to 82.

“The challenge for us and for her was to give Marion Cotillard a new body,” says Luc Dardenne. “Every day of the rehearsals, we worked on her costumes, her shoes, her T-shirts, her hairstyle, looking for the simplest thing, the most banal, to give the impression that she was just like anyone else, and not that the other actors were turning around her. Very quickly, we had the sense that Marion was becoming a member of our family of characters.”

Regarding the Dardennes’ unusual shooting style, Cotillard says, “I never felt overwhelmed,” though it forced her to dig deeper into her imagination than she has for any other role. As part of her preparation, she created an elaborate back­story for her character, Sandra, that would allow her to access the emotions she needed for any given scene. “I had written her whole life before we meet her, because I needed to know why she was depressed, how it affected her relationship with her husband and her relationship with her kids, her friends, all the people she loves,” the actress says. “But after 50 takes, the story I had come up with didn’t work anymore, so I had to create something else. I was out of gas. And it was very interesting for me to find more and more things to help me keep going and to reach the same emotion that I had had 40 or 50 times before.”

Still, Cotillard says, if the Dardennes had asked for 500 takes, she would have happily obliged. “They offered me everything I had ever dreamt about in terms of the relationship between a director and an actor — two directors, in this case — because we went into the tiniest details, and we tried everything to go beyond the work, to go beyond acting. They pushed me there, and I was so happy to go there with them.”

Talk to Cotillard for a while and she inevitably circles back to the idea of finding a character’s authenticity and going to some deeper place where the distinction between reality and performance begins to blur. Speaking of her role in “The Immigrant,” she laments that the film’s modest budget and tight schedule didn’t allow her more time to perfect her Polish and research the history of the nation. “I wish sometimes that I could be Daniel Day-Lewis and say, ‘You know what? If you want me to do this, I’m going to need a year to prepare myself.’ But if I do that, they’ll say, ‘Thank you very much’ and they’ll take someone else.”

On occasion, Cotillard has gone so intensely into a character that she has trouble resurfacing. “The first time it happened, where I really didn’t know how to escape someone, was ‘La Vie en Rose’ ” — a role the actress couldn’t shake for eight months after filming ended. “I was very ashamed, because I thought it was a job and I could easily come back to my life and to myself, but it was not that easy. I realized I needed to do a deep cleaning of a role after each movie. Now I know better how to deal with this.”

Suffice to say thesping runs deep in Cotillard’s veins. She was born in Paris, into a family of actors, and knew from an early age she wanted to follow in her parents’ footsteps. She credits classes given by her mother, Niseema Theillaud, with teaching her how to open herself up as a performer. And though she prepares for each role differently, a constant, she says, is to enter into a kind of meditative state where she doesn’t so much form the individual she’ll be playing as let it come to her. “In a way, I don’t create anything, I just open myself to the character and the character takes over,” she says. “Of course, I’m aware of it and I’m driving it, but I don’t try to control it. If I try to control it, it goes wrong.”

A self-described “weirdo” and “misfit” in her youth in Orleans, she went on to study drama at the Conservatoire d’Art Dramatique. By age 18, she began landing small parts in French TV series. Director Arnaud Desplechin, who cast her in one brief but memorable scene in his 1996 sophomore feature “My Sex Life … or How I Got Into an Argument,” recalls meeting a “shockingly beautiful and clever” 21-year-old actress who was far more comfortable with the scene (which required her to appear nude) than was her bumbling director. “Marion was so young and already so mature,” Desplechin says. “I explained to her how embarrassed I was. And she told me with a large smile and such confidence that she could just do it, that we would find a way.”

Her breakthrough came two years later as the girlfriend of a Marseilles pizza deliveryman-turned-cab driver in the Luc Besson-produced action comedy “Taxi.” It was a subordinate role in a movie mostly devoted to the buddy antics of male leads Samy Naceri and Frederic Diefenthal, but Cotillard impressed in her few scenes. The movie’s massive success (6.4 million admissions at the French box office) thrust her into a spotlight she was ill-prepared to handle. “It was tumultuous,” she recalls. “I remember — oh my god — it was kind of hard for the people who were around me at that time. When someone would come up to me in the street, I would either run away or burst into tears. I didn’t know what to do. I don’t think you’re ever prepared for this.”

Indeed, it’s one of Cotillard’s beguiling paradoxes — and perhaps a key to her appeal — that this oft-photographed beauty, who devotes herself so obsessively to her work, still feels queasy when she sees herself on the cover of a magazine, or catches aspects of her real self in one of her performances. When she played the bohemian anthropologist Marie in the 2010 ensemble drama “Little White Lies” (directed by Canet), she initially resisted giving the character some of her own gestures and mannerisms, even though she felt they were right for the part. She found the finished movie difficult to watch. “Even though I didn’t have the same story as her, we had a lot of things in common, and I saw myself in her,” she says. “Like when she’s uncomfortable, I could feel in my body that it was the way that I look when I’m uncomfortable, and I didn’t like it at all.”

She needn’t harbor any similar concerns about her next role, as Lady Macbeth in Australian director Justin Kurzel’s version of the Shakespeare tragedy, which recently wrapped shooting in England. It’s an iconic part that Cotillard long envisioned herself playing — though she was sure it would be onstage and in French. Instead, it is onscreen and in English, opposite Michael Fassbender as the doomed Scottish king. “It’s the first time I’ve played a character with no light, total darkness,” she says. “And when she loses control … I’m affected by the character I live with when I’m shooting, so I lost control of everything, like her, and it was really hard to handle.”

She has the highest regard for her co-star, of whom she says, “I saw a lot of movies he was in, and I have the feeling he’s reached another level here. When you start a scene and you don’t really know where you’re going to go, that’s a roller-coaster. Many times I was surprised by what he does in this movie, and this is priceless.”

Fassbender likewise praises Cotillard, hailing the actress as fearless and unfailingly generous to her fellow players. “She’s got so much courage just to take on the part in the first place,” he says. “She’s quite a quiet person, but onscreen she’s just electric. I didn’t have to discuss any ideas that I wanted to do, anything that came to mind during a take. I would just do it, and she always responded. She’s just very easy to work with. Zero drama, except what’s in the scene.” The film is expected to premiere in 2015, the same year that will see Cotillard take to the stage with the New York Philharmonic in a new production of Swiss composer Arthur Honegger’s oratorio “Joan of Arc at the Stake.”

Hers is, to say the least, a varied and unpredictable career, and Cotillard wouldn’t want it any other way. Though she likes Hollywood and has achieved a level of success that has eluded many other foreign-born performers, she is every bit as likely to make a small art film in her native tongue — or some newly acquired one — as to sign on for another blockbuster.

Says Cotillard’s agent, Hylda Queally, who signed the actress shortly after “La Vie en Rose” premiered at the 2007 Berlin Film Festival: “I don’t think it’s about doing the big films and the small films and doing Hollywood and Europe. It’s just about doing good films and playing good characters and not repeating performances. What motivates Marion is the character, the script and the director. She’s not going to do something just because it calls for a beautiful French actress.”

Gazing out the window at some distant point on the lower Manhattan skyline, Cotillard muses: “I always wanted to travel the world and to travel a human being’s emotions, to understand a little more about ourselves by becoming someone who’s so far from who I am. I think it must come from this really strong desire that I had when I was a kid. I was fascinated by Peter Sellers and by Sir Laurence Olivier. From one movie to the next, you didn’t recognize them, and that’s really what I wanted to do. I guess that you attract what you need in life, and I attracted a super wide playground.”
