We talked in the deserted courtyard of the Los Angeles County of Museum of Art during a screening of "Clouds of Sils Maria," with her reps at one table nearby, her stiletto heels and smartphone on another. She admits that all actresses limit the amount of time they spend wearing high heels--she's wearing flats.You had gone to Cannes with both “On the Road" and "Clouds of Sils Maria." For which you won the César. What was that like? Not something you were expecting?
No. Those Frenchies [laughs] don’t like to pass accolades that are not their own. I was really shocked. Even Juliette was like, “Hey, it’s really cool that you got nominated. It’s insane that you got nominated, actually.” If you look at it, she looks more shocked. When they said my name, literally she screamed into my ear so loudly I had no idea what was going on. I didn’t even hear my name be called. I was like, “Wait, what?” She was like, “You won! You won!” She was so shocked, that that’s how I gauged my reaction. “Wow, this must be a really big deal, because Juliette cannot believe this.”
