Léa Seydoux


When I was little, I attended a school run by nuns, where I’d hear: “God is our Saviour.” I didn’t understand. Save us from what? Now I understand that one would like to be saved, no matter who does it. I wouldn’t say that cinema saved me, but one thing I’m sure of is that I need it, that I love it and that it gave meaning to my life. I act because I want to touch people’s lives.
