Personal Quote:

[on Denis Lavant playing Alex in Holy Motors (2012)] If Denis had said no, I would have offered the part to Lon Chaney or to Chaplin. Or to Peter Lorre or Michel Simon, all of whom are dead. See more »

His nom de plume, Leos Carax, can be read Le oscar a X (L'oscar à X), which means The oscar goes to X, a funny way to pretend to get the statue. See more »
