Charlotte Gainsbourg: I Didn’t Study To Be An Actress.

Speaking to The Observer of London, singer/actress Charlotte Gainsbourg reflects on her famous parents (Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin); working with Lars Von Trier (“Melancholia“) and collaborating with musician Peter Doherty.

She also confesses that she doesn’t feel like a natural actress, which may come as news to anyone her caught her in “Antichrist” a couple of years back or this year in “Melancholia.”

To wit:

“I didn’t study to become an actress; it just happened when I was really young and then continued. I’m not a professional actress like Meryl Streep: she knows where she’s going. I never know where I’m going! If I’m good in a scene, it’s a miracle.”
