    If she is southern french, she might as well have basque ancestry, or even northern portuguese. But she does look very french nonetheless…She is so beautiful and talented, too bad her career just kinda went nowhere after The Da Vinci Code.

    I think it’s cute that her iconic character is Amelie and she has a grandmother named Amelie.
