A strange passion for murderers
During her career, Mathilde Seigner had time to have 1000 lives, to play characters of all kinds, although recently she entrusted her TF1 that all the heroines she played had a similarity. These are female characters: “rock’n’roll and “endearing””. In “Une si longue nuit”, a French remake of the British production Criminal Justice, she slipped into the role of Isabelle, a lawyer like no other.
However, she herself never dreamed of becoming a lawyer in real life. “Even if it looks like the work of an actor, because a lawyer gets on stage during arguments, I wouldn’t have liked it. I think it would have worn me out.” However, she confesses that she would have “loved to be a police officer”. “Division Commissioner, that would have freaked me out, because I’m fascinated by serial killers and crackpots.” An unusual passion!
Now you want to avoid slipping
For many years, Mathilde Seigner was considered one of the loudmouths of French cinema. she affirmed it in the columns of ELLE a few years ago: “I’ve been slipping for twenty years. I behave in public as if I were in my bathroom. I don’t calculate, otherwise I wouldn’t have left my house for a long time.” An attitude that he now calls into question to avoid problems, and in particular waves of harassment on social networks.
Invited to 50 Minutes Inside, she said: “I would like to say what I think, but I don’t do it anymore. I hold back. In addition, the public is very angry with me, people tell me on the street.” But with social networks today you can no longer. Why am I bothering to speak my mind and then beat myself up for 15 days? Before the controversy amused me. But today it’s over. we can no longer say anything besides, otherwise we grill. In fact, we live in very boring times.”
A boredom that also encourages him to take a break from his career: “I need to rediscover the desire to love, as our friend Johnny Hallyday used to say. I must admit that I am very bored right now on the set. And then I’ve been working like crazy for 34 years and I just want to live”. Words that she had confirmed in Television 7 days : “I no longer give the stick to be beaten. That’s why I leave my house less. My agent sometimes criticizes me for it, but it’s too boring to make an effort. I’m not very polite even if I know how to behave. I’m always scared I slip up on my words, especially on social media, so I protect myself.
