July 7th

Movie making is a strange profession. You become very close to a group of people..cast and crew members..and then it’s over and everyone goes their separate ways. I’ve learned that one has to be intentional if friendships formed on a movie set are to continue. Geraldine and I have pledged to remain friends. I find her fascinating with off-beat taste in all things.…

What a way to celebrate July 4th. So many friend gathered for the cocktail reception given by the Paris Film Festival to honor me. My bestest friend, Paula Weinstein and Hannah Rosenberg, her daughter and my goddaughter, are here for fashion week and she was so happy to see film director d’Euzhan Palcy, who directed “A Dry White Season” starring Marlon Brando, which Paula produced.…

OK, SO I’VE BEEN PREOCCUPIED!

Posted on July 4, 2010, in Film, Television & Theater, My Blog, with 14 Comments

Happy 4th of July, all you compatriots. I haven’t blogged for awhile and that’s because Richard arrived in Paris and well, I’ve been otherwise occupied. It has been so much fun and here are some photos to catch you up a bit. But it’s not all Richard’s fault. We’ve been doing night shooting and that throws everything topsy turvy. But I have had some fine meals in some of Paris’s best and gone dancing a few times (no photos) and there’ve been events related to the Paris Film Festival —events honoring me.…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAR GUYYYYY (AND DANIEL…)

Last night we celebrated Guy Bedos’s birthday and Daniel Bruhl’s as well although his was earlier last week. We gathered in Guy and Jo’s apartment, a stone’s throw from were I am staying on Ile St Louis—the cast, director, producer and Guy’s family and friends.

What a fun time we had as the wine and vodka flowed!!! You’ve got to understand, 3 of our male stars—Claude, Guy and Pierre—are comedians, and not for nothing.…

FIRST DAY WITH DANIEL BRUHL

Posted on June 4, 2010, in Film, Television & Theater, My Blog, with 25 Comments

We shot a charming scene today—Pierre, me and the dog—with Daniel Bruhl. I saw immediately what a wonderful and subtle actor he is. (He was the young Nazi in “Inglorious Bastards,” Tarantino’s film.)

He is 31 years old and has made more than 30 movies. He started as an adolescent. Pierre told me today that he has really loved every single scene he has filmed so far on this movie—which, he said, is unusual.…

DINNER WITH ANDREW PERRY, RICHARD’S BROTHER

Today is my grandson’s birthday. I will have to wait to call him cause he’s in school.

I am waiting to start another rehearsal here in the apartment with Daniel Bruhl and Christine Dejoux, the dialogue coach who is really wonderful. This time I’ll take a photo.

This morning I took Tulea to the French dog groomer. Didn’t they do a terrific job?…

RAINY DAY IN PARIS

Posted on May 27, 2010, in My Blog, with 18 Comments

I went to a café facing Notre Dame for breakfast this morning—me and Tulea—and the rain came down in buckets so we got stranded for an hour. I read the International Herald Tribune, my favorite newspaper of all because it pulls together all the best and most pertinent articles from other papers in the U.S. After my scrambled eggs (which weren’t what I had hoped—the French sometimes make the best scrambled eggs, creamy and without lumps) and because it was still raining too hard to venture back into the street for the walk home, I had two scoops of chocolate ice cream made by the  most famous French ice cream house, Bertillon.…

FIRST DAY IN FRONT OF CAMERA WITH THE CAST

Yesterday we all were filmed in a small studio on the other side of Paris. Waaaay on the other side! It was the first time meeting Claude Rich. All the others—Geraldine Chaplin, Pierre Richard who plays my husband, Guy Bedos who plays Geraldine’s husband, and he German actor, Daniel Bruhl—met many months ago when I passed through Paris on my way from Dusseldorf and we had a wonderful dinner together with the director and producers in Mont Martres.…

I’M IN PARIS, MAI OUI

I have arrived in Paris to begin work on a French film called “…Et Si On Vivait Tous Ensemble?” (“And If We All Lived Together?”) Geraldine Chaplin (Charlie’s daughter) is the other woman and the men are all iconic French actors, beloved here. Guy Bedos, Claude Rich, Pierre Richard. I love how the French are loyal to their stars even when they are no longer young.  …
