"I'm obliged to stay in my country, so sometimes I'm like a lion. But I don't want to be a French guy in an American movie. I don't like the way American directors treat French people." -- from www.sfgate.com, July 18, 2010
"I like to play French middle class. I like their honesty, how they eat, how they move. They don't want to put on the table all their problems. There's a kind of dignity. And we can see that in 'Welcome.' " -- from www.sfgate.com, July 18, 2010
