#Quote
1[on auditions - Variety Best Actress Roundtable (2013)] Sometimes there is a casting director who doesn't make you comfortable, like you come and they're just, "OK, we're gonna do more sad, maybe she's more sad", and you doesn't take any pleasure in fact because you're like so stressed and after you go you got some regrets. Sometimes they give you some strange excuse when it's not you the one they pick, like, "No, it's a movie for small people and I think you're too tall, so no", or, "No, I prefer brown girl", and you're like, "Yeah, but it's cinema, you can make me brown".
2[on being interviewed by Abdellatif Kechiche for a leading role in Blue Is the Warmest Color (2013)] He was sitting there and it was so strange. It felt like an exam. I'm not comfortable with telling a director how badly I want to work with them. He didn't speak, he just watched and observed me. We remained in silence just watching each other. I thought it was going terribly but I discovered that he's always like that. In interviews he takes his time to make sure he chooses the right words.
3[on performing the role of Adele for Abdellatif Kechiche] I had to really lose myself. We had no makeup or hair on set. He'd give me directions like, 'Buy a hamburger and cry. Go.' Even while I was sleeping he'd be shooting me. He wanted to capture every moment's truth. So the journey was different for everyone. I grew up with my character and I discovered how fragile I can be. So, yeah, I learned a lot about my emotions, my work ethic, and how far I'm willing to go. It was taxing and overwhelming, but I loved it.
4[on performing sex scenes with Léa Seydoux in Blue Is the Warmest Color (2013)] American audiences aren't used to it. It's a choice by the director. We all have sex, it's like a drug, everyone loves it. We had to show how making love to someone is visceral. We had to convey how much of yourself you give over. So we chose to show everyone the emotion behind discovering one's sexuality.. It was really a question of trust. We were allies on this movie. So I helped her and she helped me.
