I became with French actor, Stephanie Bataille, when we were together performing in the Vagina Monologues 2 years ago in the Super Dome in New Orleans to benefit the victims of Katrina and celebrate the women who had been in that Superdome, so many of who were raped there.

Last night, Stephanie took me to a party at the home of Elizabeth Tavernier whom I know because she did my costumes for several of the L’Oréal commercials I did. We were bidding au revoir to her home where she has lived for 25 years and from which she is about to move because the building is being sold.

It was a fun party with a wide assortment of people, many from theatre and film.

This is French actor, Micky Sebastian

Jean Rochefort’s colorful shoes!

That’s Swiss/German actor, Marthe Keller on the right. I didn’t catch the other woman’s name.

Today we filmed—all of us—and it was, finally, hot…actually hot…too hot for the clothes we had on—I had a double layer of cashmere and roasted! The pool has been dug and it was fun.

Enjoy the photos.

and the others waiting in the shade of the (real) quince tree.

Getting ready to shoot a scene where we play a very French ball game called Pétanque. Pierre is good at it.

3 more days till Richard gets here. A friend just sent me the following email: ”Absence doesn’t make the heart grow fonder but it makes lust more robust!” Unh huh.
