I don't have a favorite process. My favorite process is the right process for the person I am working with. I can fit in any process as long as the director respects who I am and doesn't try to put me in a situation to get something out of me - if I can give it without that situation.
We need to fight for women's rights, but I don't want to separate women from men. We're separated already because we're not made the same, and it's the difference that creates this energy in creation and love.
I've always had a repulsion going in a place where animals are in captivity.
I'm able to tell when I'm in a bad place or super-sad and move on. When you're stuck somewhere, you need to change something to shift the energy.
I was very surprised that they would ask a foreign actress to be Lady Macbeth, but I felt it was an opportunity that I couldn't miss. Having the opportunity to play Shakespeare in English - that wouldn't come twice.
In a way, I don't create anything; I just open myself to the character, and the character takes over. 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.
I came close to depression, but when I started to feel I could really lose myself, I somehow escaped it.
I don't think you learn how to act. You learn how to use your emotions and feelings.
Every story is different, every movie is different, every director is different.
Awards season is not something that I think about. What I enjoy a lot is knowing that people go and see the movie and they love the movie.
When you see yourself on video, you and your friends spending time on vacation, and they take a video, and then you see it, it's really disturbing.
I couldn't live without music. I experienced things through music in different countries where you cannot speak the same language, but the music and the dance relates everything.
I never thought that I would have to play an Indian, well half French, but an Indian woman in my life.
I have a tendency to often share the point of view of the conspiracy theory.
I never dreamt to be a princess in my life; I really dreamt to be an actress, but I dreamt of princesses on screen.
I've worked with people who wanted to be creative every day: it was like a goal to arrive with something very special. Sometimes it's just disturbing, because special is good when it's needed. But when it's not needed, it's confusing, and you go away from the authenticity by a strong desire to be unique and singular.
I was never really interested in fashion before I started to work with Dior. I didn't see fashion as an art form.
When you don't have time, especially for a director, you cannot do exactly what you want to do. You have to cut your dream to fit in the movie you're doing.
I think the Earth and everything around it is connected - the sky and the planets and the stars and everything else we see as a mystery.
My team puts forward a selection of dresses, and I choose the one I feel most natural in.
As a teenager, I didn't want to be me; I wanted to be many different people. Maybe I realized that they all lived inside me and that if I managed to connect with them, they would become aspects of me.
Filmmaking is not about gender. You cannot ask a president in a festival like Cannes to have, like, five movies directed by women and five by men.
It's a paradox to be an actress, living in the city, taking planes all the time, trying to find the right balance in this life, which is not so eco-friendly, and still try to respect the environment.
Did a man really walk on the moon? I saw plenty of documentaries on it, and I really wondered.
You don't really see yourself doing things, of course, but you feel.
When a script moves me, I find that I immediately understand a character. Of course not completely, but I do understand.
It was an amazing adventure, it was my dream to be in an American musical... I really hope you are going to love what you are going to see.
You fall in love with someone, you don't know this person yet, and you get to know this person. That's what happens when I fall in love with a character, and I want to be this person.
I never take anything personally when it doesn't concern me.
My dad was a mime and then he had his company and created plays for children and was very successful with it.
When I was little, there were so many people in my house. Everyone was enjoying themselves, rehearsing, having fun. It was like a playground.
I never thought I'd have the opportunity to visit another culture.
I am not very good at expressing myself in a simple way so it can create mis-understandings and I hate that.
What I like in this job is you can travel to many places, many imaginations.
You have to find the place where you abandon everything of yourself. Then you can let something else happen.
The first thing I have to do to erase my French accent is think that it is actually possible, whereas for the moment, I think it's not. I have a lot of work.
I'm so lucky to have the opportunity to work with some directors and some actors I wouldn't have dared to think I would work with one day.
My parents always told me that if you want something, you can do whatever you have to do to get it. As long as it's not against someone else.
Toni Collette is one of my favorite. I have a passion for actresses. The list is going to be very, very long.
I'd love to work with Gaultier, and I'm obsessed with Vivienne Westwood.
I would love to go into an animal's dream - like a lion's or a cat's. I'm sure that's pretty awesome.
When you start a scene, and you don't really know where you're going to go, that's a roller-coaster.
