Juliette Binoche quotes (39)

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

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

Attraction is beyond our will or ideas sometimes.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

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.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

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

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.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

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.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

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.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

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.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

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.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

For me, habit is just a synonym for death.
Juliette Binoche   Category: 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.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

I don't believe in coincidence.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

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.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

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

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

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

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.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

I think I am pretty much melancholic.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

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

I try to see my films just once. it's like a dream you've been through when it's been intense, and you just have to go through it once more just to make sure you've had it.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

I was so happy when they cast me in Chocolat, because it's one of my vices.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

I won't do something just for the sake of working.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

I would have loved to have met Marilyn Monroe and have dinner with her.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

I would say I'm humanly engaged.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

I'm not obsessed by looks. I think you can become a prisoner of your own image.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

I've never thought of my characters as being sad. On the contrary, they are full of life. They didn't choose tragedy. Tragedy chose them.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

If you have everything, then you don't want to go on. It's the lacking that makes you search for something better.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

It's never been my purpose to become an American icon, or more famous or richer.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

Maybe it's because my mother divorced and my grandmother divorced, so maybe I'm frightened deep down. But then I also feel there is no real need. Why do I need to get married? To reassure me? No I don't need reassurance.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

Movies are open doors, and at every door, I change character and life.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

My ambition is to have beautiful encounters, not to make money.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

My only ambition is to be true every moment I am living.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

Oh, I'll be forgotten too, don't worry.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

People think actors have such glamorous lives, but the truth is actors go where nobody wants to go.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

There was probably something as a child I wanted to express, something unsaid that I needed to share.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

What I love most about this crazy life is the adventure of it.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

What makes a person sexy is when he's not trying to be sexy.
Juliette Binoche   Category:

You must understand, I don't have to be happy to be happy.
Juliette Binoche   Category:
