Geraldine Chaplin

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.

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.…

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.…

SHOOTING DAYS

Posted on June 8, 2010, in Film, Television & Theater, My Blog, with 24 Comments

I was too tired to write a blog last night so the photos I took yesterday are here. I wanted to show how we shoot car scenes…with the car mounted on a flat bed , the cameras attached in front and the whole is being pulled by another truck. This isn’t the only way to shoot car scenes but a common way, and, in our case, essential because Guy Bedos doesn’t drive.…

NEW FRIENDS, NEW FILM

I flew to Paris from Dusseldorf the morning after the UNESCO event first to have an interview with Annabelle, the Swiss magazine that is similar to our Marie Claire. This was at the behest of L’Oreal.

I wanted very much to take advantage of my first-class round trip ticket provided generously by UNESCO to stop by Paris. I am going to be making a French film in Paris in June and I had hoped the cast and director could arrange their schedules to have an introductory dinner together—give us all fantasies and mental images of our playmates between now and June.…
