Video: Audrey Tautou and Anne Fontaine Talk Coco Avant Chanel

By

Coco Avant Chanel comes out today in the U.K., so they're really amping up the press — in English. The AP interviewed Audrey Tautou, who plays Coco, and Anne Fontaine, the director, about the movie, and made a neat little video spliced with some scenes from the film (which we saw and adored, by the way). Anne says she cast Audrey as Coco because she looks exactly like Coco in her youth. Audrey talks a bit about Coco's character in accented English: "She wanted to be free. And it starts by free herself in the movement — by get rid of the corset and, you know, having the possibility to feel comfortable and have practical clothes, but which highlight woman personality instead of making them only a decoration, object.” God, we love Audrey.
