When I started to record, I could sing in pitch, but that was maybe about it.
Women are the real superheroes because they're not just working. They have a life and everything.
When you meet the love of your life, it's just obvious and natural and easier.
The red carpet is not something I really know how to work. It intimidates me. I feel very tiny.
There are forms of art that I might not like to do myself, but I still have respect for the artists who create it.
You keep learning all the time.
I love clothes but I have spent so much of my professional life creating an image of one kind or another that it is nice not to care about it in life and let your skin breathe.
I was born in a suburb of Paris, and I grew up there until I was 16, so there were always a lot of barbecues, a garden, friends.
I mostly want to be friends with my children.
I understand those who don't like me.
I was an only child until I was 11 years old, which is when my sister was born. So for 11 years, it was just me.
I'm super lucky because I come home and I don't have to run errands and clean the house and do all that.
Well, my type is obviously creative. Creative, with burning eyes and a pretty mouth.
I could sing in English before I could understand it because I phonetically learned it from the musicals.
I hate, for example, whenever you hear someone say, 'You have work at being a couple.'
I am a complete sentimentalist when it comes to clothes. I have so many memories attached to them that I can't throw anything out.
I love what I do.
You know, when I eat three peas, I'm pregnant. When I visit a city, I'm buying a house.
It has been extraordinary, wonderful, I've been three feet off the ground since I made that first record.
It amuses me when I'm described as 'chic.'
In the winter I separate, in the summer I marry. It's been 15 years since I've been getting married every year.
I was for sure not prepared for fame when it happened.
As long as you're fully present in what you're doing at the moment, you're doing it.
I don't have famous neighbours and if I did, I'd avoid them. I don't live the jet-set.
How many times do I have to repeat this: my childhood was fantastic.
I don't have the recipe for happiness, but I think the engine is simply having the desire.
Sometimes you could be in an unhappy relationship; you are very much in love with someone, but it's making you unhappy and you think things can change and you can work it out.
My daughter loves singing above all else.
The movies and the parts I'm being offered are becoming better and better.
It's difficult when you want it all.
People don't get through to the essence of you right away - it's always the famous 'girl' or the famous 'girlfriend'. I'd rather be known for myself.
My children are grown now, they are more independent.
I love the romance of 'let's get married,' but then, when you have it so perfect... I mean, I'm more married than anybody can be - we have two kids. Maybe one day, but it's something I can really do without.
It's not my style to judge anybody.
Not everyone is lucky enough to be given space and trust.
The songs from your childhood, when you hear them you get chills all over.
Nothing is ever for sure, but when something in love doesn't work from the beginning, it's never going to work. Don't push it.
You fall for who the chemistry is with.
Cafe De Flore speaks of love, its joys, its pains and its dramas - to love and to lose. This story upset me, I was upside-down, in the depths of myself.
The only thing I want to say is, I know I'm not Einstein, but I'm not the queen of the imbeciles either.
The idea of a soulmate is beautiful and very romantic to talk about it in a movie or a song, but in reality, I find it scary.
I don't like things set in stone.
I just like putting outfits together without much thought and seeing what the outcome is.
I do sometimes strongly hope that in a past life, my most recent life before this, I was absolutely horrible, evil, hideous. Because otherwise - well, hell, to even things up next time around, I'm going to have to pay for this one, am I not?
It's a courageous thing to do something that doesn't have rules or limits.
'Singin' in the Rain' was the one for me. Yeah. I mean, Gene Kelly could just sway and never fall. He'd just sway and sway as he danced.
If your heart is in love, you can do anything.
Who said that artists should sell their soul, expose everything about themselves?
I'd rather sing a good lyric written by someone else than one of my own that is terrible.
I don't believe you can say 'forever'; I don't believe it exists.
Fear can make all of us do the wrong things sometimes.
If you have the support of people with a heart and a brain, then you're good.
Life is like the ocean, it goes up and down.
My mum told me to have patience. It's about realising that when things aren't going the way you want them to, or you don't have inspiration, it will come.
I realize how unique my path has been. And I'm thankful for that.
Love is the strongest and most fragile thing we have in life.
