December 11th, 2007   M. Interview, Marlène Jobert 14 Comments

(…) La veille de cette rencontre, Marlène Jobert avait assisté à une projection de «La boussole d’or», dans lequel joue sa fille Eva Green. Nous avons donc tout naturellement commencé par là.

Qu’avez-vous ressenti quand votre fille a décidé de devenir actrice?

J’étais anxieuse, je l’ai un peu découragée au début parce que c’est un métier très, très difficile et qu’elle est émotive. Aujourd’hui elle m’épate: elle a une présence, quelque chose de mystérieux et de classieux, un très beau timbre de voix aussi, et puis cette opiniâtreté à obtenir la perfection. Je serais incapable d’aller jusqu’où elle va. Je suis très fière d’elle, même si tout n’est pas joué encore. Avec le James Bond («Casino Royale», ndlr), elle a prouvé qu’elle était une bonne actrice. Malheureusement, les réalisateurs qui l’intéressent ne vont pas voir ce genre de film.

Et sa soeur Joy?

Elle est dans l’ombre. Elle est passionnée par la nature, elle élève des chevaux. Elle me paraît très heureuse de ne pas être obligée de faire ce métier (rires), donc tout va bien!

    I made a translation where it’s possible that there are some errors or sentences which make too French
    I only translated the part where marlène speaks about her daughters :


    (…) The day before this meeting, Marlène Jobert had attended a projection of ” The gold compass “, in whom plays the daughter Eva Green. We therefore of course began thereabouts.

    What did you feel when your daughter decided to become actress ?

    I was anxious, I discouraged her a bit at the beginning because it is a very, very difficult job and because she is emotional. Today she impresses me: she has a presence, something mysterious and classy, a very nice tone of voice also, and then this persistence to acquire perfection. I would be unable to go where she goes. I am very proud of her, even if everything is not earned yet. With James Bond (« Casino Royale », nldr), she proved that she was a good actress. Unfortunately, film directors who interest her are not going to see this type of movies.

    And her sister Joy?

    She is in shade. She is enthralled by nature, she brings up horses. She seems to me very happy not to be obliged to make this job (laugh), therefore everything goes well!

    ok i have translated the first paragraph in approximative english

    How her mother felt when her daughter decided to become an actress :

    She was anxious at the beginning because it’s a very difficult job. Today she impresses her, she’s got something misterious and her voice’s very soft. She also says Eva is a perfectionist and she’s very proud of her. With her role in casino royale she proved she was a good actress, but unfortunately, the directors who she is interested in don’t watch such movies

    The part about Joy I interpreted as:

    She seems very happy to not be in this career (ie. acting), so all is good.
