Emmanuelle Beart quotes

Beauty is not something you can count on. Usually, when people say you are beautiful, it is when there is a harmony between the inside and the outside.

After 10 years of French torture - psychological torture - it's great to do an American movie.

I am an actress, I earn money, I am well-known. I don't think it is altruism to become engaged in humanitarian work. It's the least one can do.

I don't always see my movies right away. And there are some I haven't seen at all. Sometimes that bothers the directors, so I'm obliged to see them.

I give everything I have to give on the screen. I feel I don't owe the public anything else.

I have no TV, thank God. I haven't heard anything about Tom Cruise, except that he had a baby, I think.
