“When I’m making a movie, I am all right. I feel wonderful. I know I am a good actress, and I feel the flow of life moving through me and into the camera. But when there is no movie, in the between times, I do not have a sense of being. I do not know who I am. I do not know where I want life to take me. I could go anywhere, do anything, but I don’t know where I want to go. Isn’t that sad?”Catherine Deneuve

Catharine Deneuve 1975“I think it is good for performers to work in other countries, although the choice of roles is naturally more limited and it is tiring to talk in one language when you are still thinking in another. We European actors are not as conscious of career as Americans appear to be. Here, it seems, there is a lot of pressure to make choices which will shape a career, but with us a career is something you realize you have when you look back.”Catherine Deneuve
