Léa Seydoux Just Out-Frenched Herself With Some Sexy Existentialism

'I was afraid of everything when I was young, in my 20s. I was so terrified about everything. Life. I was afraid to die, I think.' Did somebody say 'sexy existential'?

Can you say, 'femme mystérieuse'?

Because that' what Léa Seydoux is, a mysterious woman.

And we have all the subtlety and mystery of a traffic cone in comparison.

Don't believe us? Think we're just doing the super predictable maths of adding a beautiful face to a french accent and coming out with a brooding existentialist?

Well read this:

'Sometimes I can be extremely relaxed about things and sometimes extremely anxious...I was afraid of everything when I was young, in my 20s. I was so terrified about everything. Life. I was afraid to die, I think'

Yep, you are uncool, Léa Seydoux wins.

The Bond girl spoke to i-D about her new film, It's Only the End of the World, which was The Grand Prix winner at Cannes last year.

The film is about:

...how you can define yourself in the family circle, in society and many important emotions like frustration, the hopes you have, your desire, and the gap between reality and dreams. When you confront reality and how it's different from what you thought. How you project yourself. It's many different feelings. I've never seen a film about this.

Now that's some gens français intenses, wouldn't you say?

She also spoke about how her breakout role in Blue Is The Warmest Colour gained her a lot of lesbian fans, and how many now fancy her.

I like it. It's very cute. I'm very proud of it. While I was shooting, I felt that I was a lesbian. I like the feeling that girls can get a crush on me. When you're an actor, you like people to fall in love with you. I like to make people dream, in a way. I've been dreaming, even for me. I've seen some actors and had that crush.

Like we needed permission, we've fancied her for flippin' years.

The 31-year-old star is currently pregnant with her first child, 'It's nice," she says about the pregnancy, 'You feel more relaxed. It's natural Xanax.''

How laissez-faire can you get?
