The more we advance, the thicker the roles. Obviously we everyone gets old, it’s not funny… but since I’ve been on stage, I’ve been really very happy. What I’ve been offered on television lately just didn’t interest me. is not a question of age but rather of imagination“, she explained.

I was fulfilled in this daily life in the middle of nature, far from the noises of the world. […] Suddenly coming back to Paris and finding myself confined to an apartment was at first very violent. Then I read all the books that I hadn’t had time to open, I sorted, cleaned, in my head as in my interior. had to go back to basics, separate myself from a lot of things, it was very painful, complicated, but it did me a world of good“, she confided to Gala this July 1, 2021.
