Juliette Binoche: acting is like "peeling an onion"
The 47-year-old French actress believes her performances have got better as she has gotten older because her portrayals have grown in their accuracies of true life.
She said: "The more you act, the more you live, your perception of life becomes more and more accurate.
"It`s like peeling onions, you know? You`re peeling and peeling until you try to arrive at a sort of transparency."
The `Chocolat` star also spoke of her belief that women are naturally very creative, particularly as they get older.
She added: "Women are so creative. They`re born creative, not only because they have babies, but because there`s a blossoming to find inside us. Especially around 40 years old."
Juliette insists she is not a feminist as she thinks considering things in terms of gender makes people stereotype even more.
She said: "Do I consider myself a feminist? No. Aware of my feminine and masculine parts, sure. But that term just puts people in a stereotyped way of thinking.
"I think creation and doing, being active, is more important than talking about it."
