Léa Seydoux Covers November Vogue
LEA SEYDOUX graces her first British Vogue cover for November, looking every inch the Bond girl, while inside she talks about her role in Bond’s next big-screen outing, entitled Spectre.
“I don’t mind the cliché of the Bond girl. But Madeleine, she is very different,” she told British Vogue. “And to choose me as a Bond girl, it’s a choice. A statement. I’m not the typical James Bond girl.”
The French actress, who first appeared in the magazine in December 2013, rose to prominence for her role in 2008 as the lead in Christophe Honoré’s The Beautiful Person, before securing her first Hollywood role in 2009 – a small part in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds. In 2013, she received widespread attention after being awarded the coveted Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival for her role in Blue Is the Warmest Colour – an accolade generally reserved for a director. But, despite her obvious passion for acting, she insists she became an actress for much more practical reasons.
“I don’t like modernity. I don’t have television or the internet at home. The internet scares me. I can’t drive a car. That is why I do this job,” she said. “This is why I became an actress. So that people will take care of me. To be an actress is a refuge. You are taken everywhere, stay in wonderful hotels, everyone looks after you.”
