Lea Seydoux says Blue is the Warmest Color was male gaze-y


- Talking about working with female directors vs. male directors she says: “it’s a much more equal relationship, you’re on the same terrain. With men, there’s always that element of seduction. Male directors always project their own desire of women – how they want a woman to dress, to do her hair...”
- When asked if she thought Blue is the Warmest Color was a male fantasy, she said: “Without a doubt, yes, I think it was, it’s bound to be if a man makes a film about two women. But it’s a film that has its own truth, its own power.”
- Says she isn't mad at nor does she detest Abdellatif Kechiche and she doesn't regret speaking out against him.
- Says that in France actors tend to play the same thing over and over again, and that her playing a Bond character was her way of trying to show that she can do something else.
- Shades Gérard Depardieu


I like BitWC as a whole, but when you start to dissect scenes, it's obvious it was written/directed by a straight dude.
