” […] you take everything away, you take the perfection away, you take great hairdos and wonderful makeup away—you take everything away and you say, ‘These are the twelve of the most sensible, emotional, [actresses].’ If you shoot it on women nobody knows, well, that’s a good idea too, but then you would not make the connection. What I wanted to do was get the 12 actresses who are the most important actresses—after them, there are not many others left—and use them with that message. Not to put them in character, not to do anything to them, [just say] ‘This is them, and they are raw, and they are sensible, and they are emotional.’ This is beautiful for me. That’s why I like this calendar more than any other before, including the ones I did.”

On June 2nd FranceTV aired its weekly report called ‘Envoyé Spécial’, dedicating the ‘portrait’ segment to Léa.

There are some very beautiful moments in this documentary, enjoy them watching the video below. The portrait starts at 1h06m.
