Interview with Pierre Rochefort

A chat with the objectively dreamy Pierre Rochefort, star of French film Going Away.

When did you decide you wanted to be an actor?
At 26. I’m 32 now. I forbid myself for years to be in the industry because both my parents are, but I’m a shy guy and was told to do drama school. It was revolutionary.

What is the most fun part of your job?
Kissing is so awkward, with so many people staring at you.  In Going Away, all my friends were jealous because my co-star is really attractive.

What is the hardest part about being an actor?
The mental process. You have to be proactive. I play the ukulele…

Why the ukulele?
Well I thought it would be easy learning, but its so complicated! My fingers just won’t… do things right.

Do you ever watch your own films?
I’m going to have to. Its so uncomforting hearing your own voice.

What song makes you cry?
All songs in Les Misérables.

If you could play any role in any movie, what would it be?
E.T. vs Alien, directed by Peter Jackson.

Is it amusing when American actors fake French accents?
Brad Pitt is terrible.

Do you eat snails?
No, gross; I prefer frogs and boogers.

If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Protein bars; if I’m gonna die anyway I may as well make it last.

Have you ever been to NZ?
No, but it’s been my childhood dream; I’m sensitive about landscapes.

Would you ever bungy-jump?
I’m not into extreme sensations.

Who’s your celebrity crush?
Ryan Gosling, he would make me doubt my sexuality.
