Sometimes I take the watch, or I take the shoes, but usually the souvenir is to take the life you had with those directors, or the crew - the camera person, the lighting person. When you finish a film it's like a little death. You had a family for a bit and you finish the movie and you probably will never see each other again.
Actually, I only have a few friends in real life. And when I say friends, I'm referring to those people who I've known since the 1960s.
The advantage of being eighty years old is that one has had many people to love.
I don't think you lose culture because you act different cultures.
Everywhere in the world, you find good things.
It is an actor's defect. I want everybody to like me, so I'll say what I think will please them.
Because I was born in Casablanca and my parents were from the south of Spain, I do not have a big central root in France. I feel French but in a few ways, not at all French.
