Are these truly her comments?


Reports of her outspoken criticism of everything from the state of her home country — “France is dying” — to previous co-stars such as her romantic lead in Anna Karenina, Sean Bean — “He is very ordinary” — may have given her a reputation as rather a difficult woman. She once famously upset the late President Mitterrand by telling him how much she disliked the glass pyramid that sits over the Louvre


Co-stars are learning to dread her post-film interviews, during which she has said of John Malkovich, "he thinks he is very intellectual", of Sean Bean that, "he is very ordinary", and of Michelle Pfeiffer that she is "boring".


DiCaprio’s crime— at the height of his Titanic fame — was to say that he wanted to work with her, drooling, ‘She is as hot as it gets.’
She stylishly swatted the suggestion away, dismissing DiCaprio as ‘a child’. ‘What is he, 13 or-11?’ she asked imperiously. ‘Perhaps I could play his nanny.’
In similar fashion, she has publicly insulted other actors. Poor Sean Bean, with whom she starred in Anna Karenina, was just ‘ordinary’. Robert De Niro, whom she saw on a plane, was ‘a funny little man I didn’t even recognise.’ On meeting Bruce Willis, she said, she thought, ‘So what?’ — adding, ‘He would never have turned my head.’ John Malkovich ‘thinks he’s really intellectual’. As for Mel Gibson: ‘Every scene in Braveheart was Mel, Mel, Mel.’
She has also clashed with some of France’s most respected directors, suggesting that one — the venerable Riccardo Freda — should be in an old people’s home.

Good for her and they all sound spot-on. Makes me like her.

Didn't she have anything nasty to say about David Spade?

At least she speaks her mind and doesn't spread this "we are one big Family" rubbish.
