Audrey Tautou says she’s going to quit acting

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:

The French actress told Grazia magazine: “When I started acting, I had the idea that I would continue until I’m 40.

“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.

    She’s really tiny, but she looks borderline to me, like small but not quite anorexic.
