To kick off the Unifrance-sponsored Rendez-Vous with French Cinema festival in London, now in its fourth year and running until 7th April, Kristin Scott Thomas sat down with The Independent film critic Jonathan Romney for a wide-ranging, convivial chat about her film and theater careers. The actress, who resides in Paris, divides her time fairly evenly these days between English- and French-language films and stage appearances (she's coming to the end of a West End run in Harold Pinter's "Old Times" and had to dash off after 45 minutes for that evening's performance). Scott Thomas has a reputation for not suffering fools gladly (least of all those of the journalistic variety) but had an easy rapport with Romney, who asked smart questions and got equally smart and frequently funny replies. Here are a few of the highlights, which include some insights into working with Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling »
