CHRISTIAN DIOR COUTURE
On not working:
Not working felt ‘a little bit like grief and I started to feel really negative about myself, down on who I am, and then I realized it’s because I’ve had so much time away from me that I don’t really know what I like to do anymore. I’m out of it now, but there was this feeling of being sad or depressed... wanting to go to another project’.
On becoming a parent:
‘In whatever incarnation that is, because, you know, sometimes things don’t unfold the way you imagine they would. I’m talking to a lot of families who are traveling circuses... trying to figure out how that is possible in this business. Every child on Earth blames their parents for something, everything, at some point. Hopefully. Who knows? I hope so... I know a lot of women who want to be mothers, but, you know...’
On playing 'Eleanor Rigby':
‘If they’ve been through a trauma, they’ll bite you. I thought, “How interesting – she has no idea who she is now, and she doesn’t want to think about who she was.”
On not being able to act:
‘I don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t have this form of expression because it offers me a freedom I don’t have in my personal life. It’s a beautiful prison I’ve created for myself.’
