Invited at the microphone of Léa Salamé on France Inter, Charlotte Gainsbourg did not hesitate to unveil one of the most embarrassing anecdote of the shooting. We tell you everything!
On September 23, 2020, Charlotte Gainsbourg will be showing in Lux Aeterna, the new film by Gaspard Noé. On this occasion, the actress was the guest, this Wednesday September 16, 2020, by Lea Salamé on France Inter. The actress thus evoked this feature film which she shares the poster with Béatrice Dalle, but also shared his experiences at the cinema.
“He got loose on me”
It must be said that the daughter of Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg made his first steps in cinema very young. She therefore has more than one anecdote to tell… but one of them particularly marked her. Charlotte Gainsbourg did not hesitate to reveal it to Léa Salamé and her listeners. And the least we can say is that this shooting memory is rather embarrassing.
Indeed, Charlotte Gainsbourg remembered having shot a scene with a young actor “a little excited”. The actress continues:
Well, he didn’t show it, and we were both in bed and he was a very young boy, and I too was rather young and he let himself go on me.
The actress clarified that the young man in question, whose name she preferred not to mention, was “very embarrassed” at the time. No risk, however, that he is once again embarrassed, Yvan Attal’s wife said “that he will not hear the show”.
Very special shooting conditions
There is no doubt that Charlotte Gainsbourg should also have a good number of anecdotes to tell on the set of the film Lux Aeterna. And for good reason: this one seems to have been particularly trying. Indeed, this feature film was made in just five days. Five intense days during which Charlotte Gainsbourg and Béatrice Dalle responded to each other … only in the evening.
Yes, the shots took place after midnight, at the request of Gaspard Noé who wanted his two actresses to be in ” a state of fatigue and complete relaxation“. But the two women do not seem to have held it against him. As Charlotte Gainsbourg emphasizes, “it gives something very special”. It remains to be seen how the public will welcome the film.
Béatrice Dalle: “We arrived every day at 4 p.m. and we didn’t shoot before 2 or 3 in the morning. But as Gaspard (Noé) says, we don’t shoot our fresh films at 9 in the morning.” # le79Inter pic.twitter.com/enKgCBtxC9
