Personal Quote:

Audrey Tautou looks like a little elf with big eyes, like a deer. She's the perfect actress for me, because she's able to do both comedy and drama. That's pretty rare in France. Most French actors are only able to play realistic. Even Catherine Deneuve plays the same way all the time. See more »

Trivia:

Spoke hardly any English when he made his American debut, Alien: Resurrection (1997). He had translators on the set at all times to interact with the cast and crew. Years later, he had learned enough English to record an English director's commentary for the movie, together with Sigourney Weaver. See more »
