Jean Dujardin quotes

I've never concerned myself with the labels people want to put on you. What matters to me is my own estimation.

What matters to me is my own estimation, and I'm very tough on myself. I need to be proud of what I've done and I work hard for it. I had a very Christian upbringing... lots of guilt. A good thing, It keeps you sane.

I don't want to become a superstar and not see my family anymore.

In France, I have lots of opportunities. Maybe now I'll be offered films in America. It's the encounter, with the director and the story that counts.

It was always about the story rather than the character.

I can't speak American dog very well. There was a lot of improvisation with Uggie - like when I put the dog on the table or sometimes I follow him, sometimes he follows me. I had a lot of treats in my pocket. We worked with Omar Von Muller, the dog trainer. It was very easy because it was a big movie.

I recycle. I have a house in the south of France and I have a small garden. My name is Dujardin - 'from the garden.' I grow carrots, peppers, strawberries, green beans, and things for salads, but there are lots of wild boars all around and they steal the food.

I watched a lot of Douglas Fairbanks movies. He always played the same role with a mustache. Zorro had a mustache. The Musketeer had a mustache. Tarzan had a mustache.

I'm happiest on set because I'm not myself. I'm someone else. The moustache, the dinner jacket. It's not me. You're always this sort of double, and it's liberating. Imagine being stuck with yourself... all those doubts.

For me, I loved it. I only want to make silent movies now.

I don't care about my image.

I don't want everyone to like me, and I don't choose who likes me. You have to give them the choice, give them the option.

I feel very at home in an empty church. I feel the most protected. It's very mystical.

I like simple things. I like being in my family in the South and playing petanque.

I love dancing in general and making girls dance. My generation doesn't do it enough.

I think I'm more demanding than any wife.

I want to work with a director who becomes my brother, my father, for two months. You give yourself over to that person.

I wasn't dyslexic, I was just very slow. I passed my time daydreaming.

I'm not an American actor. I'm a French actor. I'll continue in France. If I could make another silent movie in America, I'd like to!

For you, it's a silent movie. For us, it's a talking movie because we had lines on set. There's a lot of noise on set and music. We spoke in English, in French, in gibberish, but it was very alive. The challenge was tap dancing.
