Sophie Marceau: I’m Not Beautiful
Stunning actress Sophie Marceau doesn't understand why people find her so attractive; because she maintains she has "never really
Sophie, star of James Bond film The World is Not Enough, believes her sultry looks attract filmmakers because she is adaptable and photogenic, but insists she is not beautiful.
She says, "I've never really been beautiful. I'm photogenic, which is very important, and now I'm getting older I'm aware I have
to take care. I shouldn't smoke.
"I'm transformable, and you can do all sorts of styles with me.
I can be sexy or I can be not sexy at all. I don't want to be stuck
in one thing, because I'm not myself one thing."
However, that opinion didn’t stop the actress from saying that she is absolutely unashamed of her nude scenes in films, and would even show her naked frolics to her five-year-old son.
The Braveheart actress, 33, says there is nothing private about nudity when it comes to acting.
She says, "sex belongs to life, very much so. The cinema is to
talk about everything, and people have problems talking about sex.
It's harder for me to talk about it in my private life than in the
movies, but I think it's healthy to talk openly about it because
otherwise it can cause pain.
"But technically speaking, love scenes are like any other scenes.
They are emotional, and the body is an instrument. So what does the
scene mean? Does it mean hate, love, pleasure, rape, what?
"You are acting something, and I am not ashamed. In loads of
movies I've done have naked scenes, and there's not one that I
think, euh!, I couldn't show it to my son. There is nothing private
there. It's acting” – WENN.
