Although often described as an icon of cinema, Catherine Deneuve rejects this definition of herself. She also doesn’t think she was ever a “sex symbol”.

However, the movie star still values ​​the films she made with directors Jacques Demy (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, The Ladies of Rochefort and Donkeyskin) and François Truffaut (The Last Metro). According to her, Demi was especially important at the beginning of her career, when she still did not have much experience in the cinema.

“Today, the important things are the same: the story I want to tell…the script…the environment we’re creating…the people I’m going to spend time with,” Deneuve said.

The actress also continues to look for new films and her desire is to watch them among the audience in the cinema hall.

“I love cinema. I love going to the cinema,” says Catherine Deneuve. “I want to be at the cinema with people I don’t know. It’s not just about the sound. It’s the atmosphere. It’s very different at home. You don’t feel the same way at all.”
