In what sounds like a response to critics panning her new film, “The DaVinci Code,” French actress Audrey Tautou, best known as the cutesy meddler in “Amelie,” says that she’s going to quit acting:
“Now, after doing The Da Vinci Code, I’m probably ready to quit at 30.
“I know I’m not the best actress in the world and not the worst but I think that maybe I’d be happier doing something that doesn’t leave me so exposed.”
She sounds like a sensitive person and she’s probably quite hurt by the bad reviews of “DaVinci Code.”
Hopefully she’s just being reactionary and won’t quit anytime soon. One bad film is not a good enough reason to throw away an acting career. She’s only 27, and has a good three years left in her by her own account, anyway.
Here she is looking cute and just a little bit flirty with Tom Hanks at a DaVinci Code photo call, and at the premiere and after party for the film. She is also shown in stills from the movie.
