Part 1.
@ Darlene Havener :

Same for me with some foreign actors because their films don’t release in DVD Zone 2. It’s very frustrating I grant you !
That said, a lot of TV films in which Gaspard Ulliel played when he was very young are not available in France either ! And nothing on YouTube !….

Emma121975 says:

Part 2.

… I have only seen them on french TV, but they don’t exist on DVD.
When he was very young, Gaspard Ulliel looked like him : Kv5GrD7zvd0
JB Maunier, the French actor and singer in this video looks a lot like Gaspard when he was the same age. Especially from 2m36 to the end of the video.
At 2m46, he really looks like Gaspard in Hannibal. It’s amazing !
(of course, JBM is older now & doesn’t look like Gaspard anymore)

Which films of Gaspard are not available in DVD zone 1 ?

Darlene Havener says:

I couldn’t agree more, Emma. It’s why I watch as many foreign films as I can. Sadly, a lot of Gaspard’s are not available.

Emma121975 says:

About the accent & the language, Gaspard answered fan questions in an interview (just after Hannibal):
Question : Do you have Anglo Saxon origins?
Gaspard : no, I’m French. French 100 % .That said, younger I was in a bilingual school during several years. So, this allowed me to have an English level more than correct I would say. That said, I am better at writing than oral (speaking?). And for this film, I have all the same worked during a half months with a coach to work on the British accent!

Emma121975 says:

I guess you’re talking about this interview : HJHvWCyJ3Tc ?
The most interesting interview about cinema, film industry & difference between France & USA. B.Tavernier is really someone very interesting.
In short, this is why I prefer the French cinema and more generally European films.
No offense, and maybe I’m wrong, but I often have the impression that Americans are more interested in what can bring (numbers, box office, dollards, etc..) than the work / the film itself…

Emma121975 says:

As for Gaspard, he isn’t the kind of actors interested in money. If this were the case, he would play in many more films. He often refused commercial / popular films & proposals for foreign films. He is very “exigeant” (picky?) in the choice of his films. He plays more in independent or specialized films or even shorts films. He is someone who is passionate about art before everything (also painting). The film “Le premier cercle” is an exception (he said he wanted to try something different)

Emma121975 says:

Part 2
That’s why the Americans are unlikely to see him again in an American film. He repeated several times in interviews (radio) he doesn’t like very much this business side of the american film industry and what called the “general meetings”. He apparently hated it (not surprising given his personality!): these meetings in which you must (have to ?) meet producers, American directors, etc.
So, unless he win an oscar with a French film (very unlikely), I’m afraid you’ll never see him in USA 🙂

Darlene Havener says:

Gaspard & Tavernier talked about the American obsession w/$ & profits. I prefer French films & other European films because they make the films they want & not what will make the most $. Gaspard was very young when he made Hannibal so between his talent, his looks, the fact that he already had accented English & didn’t demand 1/2 the movie profits made him very attractive to Peter Webber. Just my opinion, of course.

Darlene Havener says:

I loved A Very Long Engagement. I read the book a few years before and was very pleased w/the film version. No offense to any European/French actors or filmmakers, but if they are interested in doing an American film they are usually interested in the part itself. I believe they also don’t demand the huge salaries & are not prima donnas. So, yes, Gaspard may not have been a better actor or have more presence than others but I imagine he approached it w/more interest than just $.

Emma121975 says:

I know Peter Weber, the Director of “Hannibal” chose Gaspard Ulliel when he saw him in “A very long engagement” (he won a César for his performance / he deserved it because he is excellent in the film !). One of my favorite parts is when Gaspard says : “C’est une chance qu’ils m’aient condamné, sinon on aurait dû attendre la fin de la guerre. Là du coup, je vais pouvoir rentrer à la maison tout de suite après l’exécution” 🙂 Just perfect ! Making of here : UljkNO46bFg

Emma121975 says:

That said, ok he has a strong presence / charisma, but as I wrote, he isn’t the only actor in this case ! That’s why I’m very surprised a French actor was chosen for Hannibal 🙂

Emma121975 says:

… or sometimes chosen because of (or thanks to) a scar 🙂
When B.Tavernier, the French director, chose Gaspard to play the role of the Duke of Guise in “The Princess of Montpensier”, the first question of Gaspard was : is that you chose me for my scar ? FYI, the Duke of Guise really existed in French history. He had a scar on the cheek (injured during a battle – he was known to be a great fighter).
So, he was nicknamed “the scarred”… 🙂

Emma121975 says:

Part 2
… Tavernier did not choose Gaspard for this. That said, his scar is more pronounced when you see him in real life than on TV where it is mitigated by the makeup I guess.

(sorry for my English)

Darlene Havener says:

Hi Emma. In Hannibal he has an accent & I’m as bad as most Americans & cannot always distinguish the type of accent, although I knew he was French. American directors will cast for an accent & a more continental look. And he is a good actor w/ a strong presence, in addition to being beautiful. Hannibal is supposed to be Lithuanian & I think Gaspard tried to color his accent. But in interviews for Hannibal he had a few colorful pronunciations. It was actually cute, lol.

Emma121975 says:

Thanks for your answer, Darlene 😉

So, does it mean in “Hannibal”, he has a French accent ?
Then, I am wondering why he was chosen to play the role of Hannibal Lecter who is not supposed to have a French accent, though ?
(apart from the fact that G.ulliel is a good actor… but he is not the only good actor :
I guess a lot of good American actors could have played this role … without accent ! :))

Darlene Havener says:

Gaspard’s English has improved from when he did interviews for Hannibal. His pronunciation is good, his accent is just enough to make him even sexier.

Emma121975 says:

A question for the english-speakers :
I know G. Ulliel doesn’t speak english perfectly. I mean… even if he speaks english fluently, he has a french accent (at least in the Chanel’s making-of and english interviews), but I am wondering if he pronounces correctly the sentence without accent at the end in this advertising or not ?
And in the film “Hannibal”, does he have a french accent or not ?

@ issivalo : non, il continue son régime.
re-cast Jeremie’s character ? I never wrote that 🙂

xandervaliya says:

Is that the Hewes Street station at the beginning?

issivalo says:

Anyways, probably he stopped that extreme diet he was doing because when the news went out that they werent going to film this spring he cut off his hair (part2)

issivalo says:

They are going to re-cast jeremys character? I didnt know that and also I didnt know that the other biopic was going to hit USA instead the one with Gaspard. Yes the other one looked more artistic and the way Gaspard was going to portray Yves would have been amazing, the guy looked like his freaking clon on the first poster, he was so into the character for that movie.

Emma121975 says:

You wrote : “If the movie about YSL is a success ?”
This film has been pushed back (postponed ?) to september 2013 and I read there is even talk of possible trial (from the lover of YSL).
So, maybe Gaspard Ulliel is losing weight for nothing (read all my comments here to understand : KSLdVoETCoo
The other problem : there is another biopic on YSL (from the Director Lespert with the actor P.Niney as YSL), and unfortunately, it’s this second film which will be distributed by H.Weinstein in USA.

Emma121975 says:

Part 2.

This is my opinion (maybe I’m wrong), but I’m sure Harvey Weinstein would have chosen the film by B.Bonello (with Gaspard Ulliel as YSL) if the lover of YSL wanted to give his consent for this film (not the case / read my comments on the other video)
Because the film of Bonello seems more artistic than the one of Lespert (more classic)

In short, I don’t hope so, but maybe the movie with Gaspard as YSL will be canceled… Who knows ?

Emma121975 says:

Part 1.
As he said several times in interviews, Hollywood is not necessarily a goal for him. He likes to play films in France.
And that’s fine, because I prefer when he plays in my / his mother tongue (he is much better). As V.Cassel, J.Dujardin (2 other French actors) or Gaspard explained in French interviews, it’s very difficult to play in another language than your mother tongue, because you don’t feel the words the same way… You think first in your language, etc…

Emma121975 says:

Part 2.
… and of course, you are less good in another language…

Gaspard Ulliel said a lot of interesting things about Hollywood in a radio interview 3 years ago (maybe I will translate later)
Personally, I prefer his radio interviews, because he is more relaxed (less stressed) and the questions are more interesting and it’s often much funnier.

issivalo says:

Thats sooo true.!! He could be so big in Hollywoord. His looks are amazing

issivalo says:

I have been reading all your comments and couldnt agree more with you Gaspard is such an amazing character its incredible how he gets in the part that every scene is so mesmerizing, specially the romantic ones… This guys could be the “it” guy in hollywood is the YSL movie its a success!!

Dasha Larina says:

Gaspard!!!

Emma121975 says:

Oh and by the way, here are 2 videos about the making of this perfume (for those who haven’t seen them) :

1. The encounter between Gaspard Ulliel & Jacques Polge : e6jnjb0kn-w

2. Jacques Polge about “Bleu de Chanel” : DFw2sW-gtL8

(with translations in english)

(I can’t put a link here, so you have to copy & paste the words/links above in Youtube to watch these videos)

Emma121975 says:

Of course, I meant “Alexis Michalik” (not Machelik :))

Emma121975 says:

Part 1.
I don’t know if all the French men have high voices (as you said in a previous comment), but for me (I’m French), these voices are normal / usual.
Listen to Guillaume Cramoisan for example (another French actor)… Have a look here: tcYcag6rjsk or 5vEwzzq-u5E (copy & paste the link in youtube) or A.Machelik (a French actor) : DbZwnf-Pw-E or even L.Delahousse (journalist) : FfPTpig6Jfw (to name a few)… they have very similar voices (like a lot of French men, you’re right), but…

Emma121975 says:

Part 2.
for me, it’s rather the American / English voices which seem strange / weird… sometimes (because very different compared with French voices :)))

Emma121975 says:

In an interview, Gaspard Ulliel said about DiCaprio : “it seems he writes prefaces of contemporary art books. I’d love to talk with him”.

As I wrote in a previous comment, like DiCaprio, Gaspard is passionate about painting and art in general.
In an other interview, he also said he is haunted by the “Van Gogh” of M.Pialat (a French film). He would have liked to play the role (of course too young at the time :))

Emma121975 says:

Of course, in France, the “Césars” are the equivalent of the Oscars in USA 🙂

Emma121975 says:

Sorry, in English I meant :
Rather than to direct him in an advertising, M.Scorsese should offer him a role in one of his films. Gaspard Ulliel is very talentuous, he is a great actor.
Whatever the character, he is excellent !
I particularly liked him in “Le dernier jour”, “Strayed”, “A very long engagement”, “The vintner’s luck” & of course in “Jacquou le croquant” (the link here : v=KqbmjqgSkEY). My favorite. Leo Legrand, the actor who plays “Jacquou young” is also incredible.
