Audrey Tautou… “Hollywood… Non Merci !”

Audrey Tautou

HOLLYWOODNON MERCI ! “…

French actress…

Big black eyes… big soul…

Gamin“… beauty

Tautou, who… “bewitchedbothered… and bewildered“… her audience in her darling role… of “Amélie“… ten years ago… in “Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain“…

Still insists

She wants to… quit acting

Pourquoi“…  why..??

Why would this ultra-bankable actress… who has the talent and the delicious Parisian… “je ne sais quoiattitude… (“comme les autres actrices françaises”… Catherine Deneuve… Juliette Binoche… Marion Cotillard…)… want to leave the acting firmament… which made her a staradmired and idolised by an adoring French and international audience

Audrey’s charm… performing in Jean-Pierre Jeunet‘s… “Amélie“… arguably the most successful French film in recent years, grossing almost 174 million USD worldwideis irresistible

Five years laterreaching the pinnacle of her career by performing opposite Tom Hanks in Ron Howard’s mega-budget screen adaptation of Dan Brown’s international best-seller… “The Da Vinci Code“… which catapulted her into international stardom

NON“…

Fame and fortune DO NOT interest her

I am not super-attached to my careerI would rather have freedom than power“…

Endearingly refreshing…

A rare breed of an Actor  Voila

Most Actorscan’t get enough of the limelight

I adore… drawing, writing, travelling”… she said.

Tautou… now thirty five… was compelling in her role as… Coco Chanel… in Anne Fontaine’s “Coco avant Chanel“, also winning the César Award for Most Promising Actress inVenus Beauty Institute“.

She starred with Guillaume Canet in Claude Berri‘s “Ensemble, c’est tout” in 2007, an adaptation of the novel by Anna Gavalda.

Appointed as spokesmodel for Chanel No. 5 in 2009, she was directed in the short film advertisement by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, who directed her in “Amélie” and “A Very Long Engagement” (“Un long dimanche de fiançailles”)…

It is a beautifully crafted commercial by Jeunet… for Chanel No. 5… where Audrey Tautou brilliantly captures the ethereal romance conjured by… the legendary Coco Chanel‘s perfume to perfection

J’adore……

Beautiful lies“… De vrais mensonges“… the 2010 film made by Pierre Salvadori, who directed Tautou in the comedy “Priceless” or “Hors de prix“… is a light-hearted comedy which suits her gift for comedy perfectly.

La Délicatesse“… in which Tautou will be starring… is the touching first film by David and Stéphane Foenkinos, adapted from the award-winning novel by David Foenkinos… which will be released at the end of December 2011

We’re awaiting to view the film with… bated breath

Tautou considers France her base… and plans to pursue a career predominantly in her countryrather than Hollywood.

I AM at the end of the day a French actress

My homemy communitymy careeris rooted in France…  I would never move to Los Angeles“.

Mais Hollywoodça ne m’intéresse tout simplement PAS“…

Her ambivalent attitude… towards her career as an actress at the pinnacle of her fame and fortune is totally admirable

We genuinely hope… she will not betempted toquit her profession any time soon

Audrey Tautou

Beguiling… “gamine”…

Ethereal

The lovely…

The beautiful…

Brilliant… adorable…

Tautou

May she… long

Star… in the… movie…

Cinematic

Firmament
