Juliette Binoche Quotes

Acting is a tough business, and you need to be in good shape mentally and physically.

As an actress we don't beat one another. It's whoever's right for the part.

Attraction is beyond our will or ideas sometimes.

Before I thought there was a common denominator between my films - as if all my characters were sisters - but I'm not so sure now.

Being a famous actress may give you a sense of being important, but believe me, it's just an illusion.

But I think it's a little different in Europe, because 40 is really the best age for a woman. That's when we hit our peak and become this ripe fruit.

But I've never felt that being an actress is being in a comfortable place. It's seen from the outside that we're being driven in big cars and having these gorgeous suites and all of that. But come on, it's not about that.

But, you know, when I choose a film I need to believe in it and believe I can do something special with it, and after a while that means not trying to judge or analyze why I should do it. You have to follow this intuition thing, which is a mystery to me.

Choosing to be in the theatre was a way to put my roots down somewhere with other people. It was a way to choose a new family.

Each new film is like a trial. Before I step in front of the camera, I do not know whether I am going to fall or whether I am going to fly - and that is exactly the way I want it to stay.

For me, habit is just a synonym for death.

I believe that being an actress or being involved in a movie has to be a life experience, otherwise why go for it? I have to change me, and I have to learn things, and I have to push me and my limits. By acting, I find a freedom inside of a prison in a way.

I don't believe in coincidence.

I like travelling and if I have to come to Hollywood to make a movie I will, but otherwise I'd never move there. It's very much an industry town and that doesn't really interest me.

I live for the present always. I accept this risk. I don't deny the past, but it's a page to turn.

I never felt being an actor or making a movie was an easy thing to do.

I sometimes feel like I could do another job. Anything. Maybe because as an actress you're playing different characters, everything feels possible.

I think acting is about forgetting yourself in order to give the best of yourself. It's passing through you more than you're creating it. You're not the flower, but the vase which holds the flower.

I think I am pretty much melancholic.

I think it's the same simple thing for everyone - to be happy, and have love in your life.
