Five years later, in January 2006, they filed for divorce. She discussed her relationship with the French actor/director in an April 2007 interview with The Sydney Morning Herald.

“He’s a great actor and a fabulous director and I admire him immensely. I owe him so much. It’s actually because of him that I am considered a character actress in France because he cast me in his first film, Mon Idole, and that was my first role there.”

“Getting divorced last year was a big thing for me. You know, I was responsible for someone else’s feelings. It had been very difficult trying to make the marriage work as I was never around. Ever since we cleared up that situation and have managed to stay friends I feel much more assured. It’s good that I’m only responsible for myself. I cannot bring someone else down with me, make someone else unhappy. It’s sad, but it’s timing, I guess.”
