Personal Quotes
[About Sybilla, her character in Kingdom of Heaven (2005):] "Sybilla suffers from numerous frustrations. She's an heroine, not a "potiche".

[When asked who she'd like to work with - GQ Magazine UK, August 2014] There's so many but I love Matthew McConaughey, I think he's really intentioned and so interesting. I would also love to work with Marion Cotillard.

The sex scenes were quite full on and frank in The Dreamers (2003). I had a scene in which my own character has to lose her virginity. I had to remember how I felt when I first had sex. I am so reserved in real life, but I surprised myself completely. I was asked if I wanted some alcohol before some of the scenes - and admit that I did have some whiskey. There was a breaking of the ice before the sex scene. The actor Louis Garrel came into my trailer and said: 'I will show you my dick if you show me your breasts.' So I did - and he did. He said to me: 'They look great.' So when it came to the sex scenes, it made it a little easier.

I'd rather be thought as an international actress rather than a French one. Because I don't know what's coming up for me, my ambition is not to be typecast. So I'm working on my English accent, as well as my American one. I don't want to be like 'Okay, I'm French, and I want to succeed in Hollywood!' Juliette Binoche has set a good example of what I want to do, because she works all over the world, and that's what I want to do as well.

[on taking a break] -- If I'm feeling a bit down I think of a very nice place in the sun to calm me down - like a place I went to not far from Cancún in Mexico. I just imagine I am there and everything gets calm in my head. My mother has a house in Normandy - I feel quite centered when I'm there. She cooks for me and I feel like I'm two years old.
