It went well although Sunday I was locked out of my apartment (locked my key inside) for 3 and a half hours and it was really cold and rainy and I caught a cold so feel crumby. Still do. My scene had no dialogue but was a more intense than I expected moment between Guy Bedos (Geraldine’s Husband and a life-long friend of my character) and me. It was so cold out there in the suburbs where we shot. I didn’t count on this when I packed. Wardrobe will loan me some heavy sweaters today.

Here are a few photos of the shoot. I forgot to take any of Guy and me. Today I film some good scenes with my husband, Pierre Richard, and I promise to do better in the photo department…but I do feel lousy. Went to bed at 8pm (took a pill) and just woke up and took Tulea out…it’s 6:30am. Usually I wake up closer to 9am and call Richard who is about to go to bed. I also call him before I go to bed when he is just waking up. (( hours difference.) Dig this: Calling on a French landline, calls to U.S. Are FREE!!!

Stephane Robelin, director, and Dominique Colin, cinematographer in back of car. They're filming me through the windows.

The house where me and my huband live

The crew

The dog--she plays a pivotal role. She is very gentle and gets along well with Tulea. Isn't she great looking?

See you next time.

  1. Oh, how I envy you, Jane! How dreamy to be in Paris! Drink that city up and take a swig for me. And yes, that dog is precious. Please give it a kiss for me.

  2. I can’t wait til this comes out Jane! I’m really excited! When do you think it will be wrapped up?

    Anyway, goodluck with the film, I hope you have fun doing it! <3

  3. Get well soon, Jane. Poor thing. Crumbly is a good word!!
    I, like others here, also think you’re a bit too thin at the moment, but I hope I’m not overstepping the mark. Wouldn’t want to offend.

    Conserve your energy and get well soon!

  4. thaks for sharing!

  5. Dear jane~oh no! A cold! Just before your film shoot begins! Oy! It’s like getting a zit on your chin right before the prom! Oy vey! Is there something a chemist can give you to help? Oscillococcinum? Coldcalm (both homopathic medicine). Please bundle up in your heavy sweater~& tulea too~and feel better very soon. I hear chicken soup helps (richard! Hello?!) With love from cambridge~m&lb

  6. When I was looking at apartments in Paris last year I saw lots of them advertising free calls to U.S. One more obstacle to me taking an extended stay in Paris taken down. God is sending me a message. 🙂

  7. Hi Jane,

    by any chance, are you filming in the “west” suburb ?

    west suburb of Paris is considered as ….the hype one !!!!!

    Love & all my admiration to you.


  8. IF there is a brightside of being locked out of ones apartment, then at least it is your relative anonymity in Paris. If it would have happened in L.A. the pictures would be in every tabloid, TMZ would have video of you and tulea, and the story would have been that you were returning from Rehab in Tucson and had relapsed from an undisclosed addiction and dropped your keys, while stumbling out of your Town Car! The last time I was in Paris, not only were the phone calls free to the U.S. but the mail was delivered 3 times a day and the pigeons were being fed birth control. Enjoy the shoot.

  9. Any thoughts on the passing of Dennis Hopper?

  10. Love these updates!!

  11. Jane,

    I’m happy to hear your first day went well, but sorry about your cold. You’re not the only one who has locked themselves out of their apartment! I am a pro at it!

    Perhaps you are trying to take on too much, too fast. What about that “vertical” existence you referred to in your book (which I read more carefully recently) as being something you yearned for. I identify so well with your life (minus the Hollywood!)

  12. So sorry to hear that you are not feeling well!:( That chilly, wet weather can certainly contribute to people getting colds! Hope you’ll be feeling better soon!:) These are great pictures, Jane! It’s fun to see who you are working with! Great pic of the guys in the back of the car!

  13. I hope you have a good shoot, coming up. Yes having warm things to ware is a problem. I had warm things for winter ,after being in Ireland and other part of europe to rest I went on to Hawaii for a time and took only light things too ware.
    Not to go in detail , but I spent the winder in what I had in Hawaii, been cold. In my screenplay the Action all takes place in sunny California, and your character is living in Malibu in a very nice home. Your 3 and a half hours and it was really cold and rainy, sounds like a ordeal.
