First the guy says that many might not know her name, but they certainely have seen her lovely face, since she’s done a lot of editorials. After that he said that we saw her in a ad with Robert Patterson and he ask her if he bites? You say that the ad director was asking Patterson to act agressive for the kiss scene. She says that he bite her a litte.
Interviewer :You’re the most sought after French lady. Camille :Thanks
That most leave you with a strange feeling, since it wasn’t your little girl dream.
C : No, not at all. I started kind of late, I was 19 while studying cinema at university in the US. My agent found me in a coffee shop and asked me who represented me. I said that I represente myself. So yeah it kind of started like that, a little late. I’m kind of small also.
I : You’re 1,70m. C : Yes I’m 1,70 (5’6’’-5’7’’)
I : You’re not that small. C : For « that world » yes I am.
The guy next to her : Models are usally really tall, you’re more normal. C : I’m normal.
I : The Officiel magazine said that even though you’re not a really tall, you have a chest that deserve a name. What do they mean by that?
C : I don’t know. Eh… it’s true that at first I really showed my chest which is kind of strange since when I’m at the beach I don’t take my top off. I don’t know it’s my job and I role that I play.
I : You have a nothing thing that is pretty rare for models or for young women working in fashion, it’s that you smoke.
C : Yeah
I : Don’t tell me otherwise, because we have a picture of you doing the « instant clope ». Look how pretty is this picture, if everybody would smoke like that.
C :I smoke, yes I smoke.
Blond woman : Is it banned? Do we prohibe models to smoke?
C : No, I find that several models do smoke. I think that in the US it’s really well seen. I’ve done a show the UK Vogue about wellness and we talk alot about the fact that i’m a smoker. For a long time I had a lifestyle, that I think comes with fashion, where we go out too much, we drink too much, it’s really exausting , I was really tired. I went to LA so I could be more careful about myself and the UK Vogue are kind of making a show about that. But I can’t really get rid of the cigarettes.
I : You don’t have an american accent. And in a video you were promoting french language for ID magazine.
I : For your first castings, maybe it was your agent idea, you forced your french accent.
C :Yeah, totally. In fact it’s really shameful, when i drop out of university to go to New York, I ran into a old teacher, I talked to him with a french accent and he wasn’t understanding me. I was imparassed that I also had to explain that I dropped out to do modelling and that I was forcing a french accent.
I : The other day Diane Kruger was telling us that when she was pull over by an american cop, she really forced her french accent not to get a fine.
C : I do the same thing when I smoke on terrace. I said that I’m french i do not know. And it works.
I : Would you like to do like Diane Kruger, who started as a model and a dancer, to do films?
C : yes. I was thinking about it for a time, I was waiting for a project and know there’s one (with Guillaume Canet)
Guy next to her : Have confidence in yourself, from what i’ve seen earlier you’re good.
C : thanks
I : But you can’t talk about the role for the moment?
C : Not really
I : So we’re right in the middle of the Paris’s Fashion week, what tips do you have so I could look smart if I ran into someone for the business?
C : (she laughs) Good question.
I : Have something struck you this week.
C : Well, I just got here… Modelling is my job, but the high fashion isn’t really my world.
I : We went to ask models and fashionista what you represented.
(They show a video of interviews with a couple of models)
I : We say that your style is effortless, it’s natural.
C : Yeah, I’m always in jeans and t-shirts.
I : when we we’re there we show another picture of a fashion icon….
I : I saw many thing in the press, tell me if it’s true of false.
I : In a journal in Cote-d’Or, they say that you picking mushrooms at the first occasion you have everytime you’re in Bourgogne, is that true?
C : I do my picking in Jura
I : In Paris Match we say that your only restriction is to stop beer before a shooting.
Blond women : Is there a lot before?
C : Honestly it’s been 11 months that I haven’t drank alcohol.
Most of the persons at the table : Why?
C : Because I said to myself that I will go a year without alcohol and I feel good.
I : Frédéric Beigbeder said that you made the whole journal (Lui) fall for you, that makes a lot of people?.
C : Yeah, it’s cool.
I : How’s Beigbeder convinced you to do his cover, without alcohol?
C : No it’s a pretty economic(?) magazine, so it wasn’t really hard to convince me.
I : He did well, you did well.
