Et Si On Vivait Tous Ensemble

This morning there were 3 TV interviews. This most interesting one called “Tea au Café” (Tea in the Café) with Catherine Ceylac who looks like Diane Sawyer and was a terrific interviewer.

PARIS BLOG PART 3

Posted on November 5, 2012, in My Blog, with 10 Comments

I did three magazine interviews this morning, then did the 3 hour Michael Drucker show called “Vivement Dimanche” which is one of if not the most popular TV shows in France that airs Sunday afternoons throughout Europe since 1997. I did the show 7 years ago to promote my memoir. Vanessa, my grandkids and Tulea were all with me then on the show and I was astonished at how huge the audience was—I got so much feedback.…

IN PARIS PART 2

In the photo above I am with Pierre Richard from our film, “…Et Si On Vivait Tous Ensemble” (And If We All Lived Together). I spent yesterday in Paris doing interviews on behalf of the film which was made last year. What was so exciting was that the journalists all felt the film was really good. Many had seen it at festivals.…

LAST DAY

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.…

WE BUILT IT AND THEY CAME

I didn’t work today, luckily, because I got to bed very late. But I went out to the location later today to do some voice overs. When I got there, they were filming a scene around the pool with Geraldine’s grandchildren (Actually the director’s children playing the roles) and I couldn’t resist taking a picture. I have taken you through the whole process…first it was a vegetable garden, then they began to dig a hole for the pool, and so on.…

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.…

LAST NIGHT AND TODAY

Posted on June 22, 2010, in Film, Television & Theater, My Blog, with 14 Comments

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.…

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.…

The one and only time for that and, had I know, I would never have accepted a dinner. Pickup at 7:30 am so I had to get up at 6am and there was lots of traffic and, after 4 hours sleep I was whacked.…

IF YOU BUILD A SWIMMING POOL WILL THE GRANDKIDS COME?

Posted on June 17, 2010, in Film, Television & Theater, My Blog, with 7 Comments

That’s the question Geraldine’s character poses to herself. She misses her grandkids since their parents moved a little bit away and thinks they don’t love her anymore.

So in this scene where we’re enjoying a barbacue in the garden, our friend, played by Claude Rich (in the cap) suggests putting a swimming pool in place of the vegetable garden. Geraldine’s husband is totally opposed.…
