In a foreign interview with La Nacion, Bérénice Bejo spoke about working on The Childhood Of A Leader. We used google translate to translate the part where she talks about reading the script and her character and also working with Tim Roth and Robert Pattinson.
Did you feel the need to seek stronger characters?
I do not feel anything. The script came, I read it and I did. I said: “I have to look stronger and denser stuff”. It went well, what they proposed me and obviously I could not say no. But I do not plan on a career. I do not say, “Now I have to do a comedy,” or something else. Leo scripts, and I like, I do. I wish that the next film was a comedy, because the last two were very intense. But it will not be. Because comedy scripts I read not like. And the next thing I do is another strong film with the character of a mother whose son is very particular, a little awkward and weird. Over the scenes you’re realizing that it is not a normal guy, he’ll become a monster or something. And it is about the relationship with the mother and father. So good, I read, I liked that I was given a role as well, and I’m going to do. I was lucky to do very different things.
‘And in Hollywood? I guess after your Oscar nomination in 2012 for The Artist, should many proposals to work in the United States have arrived.
-A Michel reached him many scripts. I already had two films to make and was not available for two years. And now that I told you that I do, is an American film, a debut, with Tim Roth, that will make my husband, and Robert Pattinson, the character of a family friend.
