Emotional: The French beauty seemed emotional as she took the stage during the lavish ceremony

She was asked three times if she had really rejected Spielberg when she replied, “I don’t remember very well, but Steven reminded me! The first time was for Indiana Jones 3, because I did The Lovers On The Bridge with Leos Carax.

“The second time, for Schindler’s List, I was pregnant, and then for the dinosaurs (Jurassic Park), I had already committed to Three Colors: Blue (Krzysztof Kieslowski’s film).

“It would have been nice to do Jurassic Park to see how (Spielberg) makes the movie, but at the same time, Spielberg is more of a male director, like Scorsese really is.”

She was asked if she would work with Spielberg or Scorsese in the future.

The actress remained honest when she replied, ‘Of course I want to! Even though I find their approach to cinema very commercial, they have a fantastic technique that they fully possess, and there are storytellers. But their films lack women.’
