Audrey Tautou Doesn’t Want a Hollywood Career

Audrey Tautou Doesn't Want a Hollywood Career

In a recent interview with Radio Times, Audrey Tautou said she doesn’t want a Hollywood career because of the scrutiny that actresses go through.

The Amelie actress, who starred in The Da Vinci Code alongside Tom Hanks, feels that the pressure for women in Hollywood is much different than in France. And for Tautou, that’s something that she’s uninterested in.

People staring at every single millimetre of your body and what you wear, it is a huge pressure. Some people are happy with that, but me, non.

While Tautou has a great admiration of American directors and films, she doesn’t believe that she could be part of that business–she doesn’t want to compromise her life for it.

In Hollywood, there is a very important marketing, business, branding side. And I really don’t think I could be formatted for that.

Tautou’s next film, Mood Indigo, is expected to hit theaters later this year.
