You know her from “Before Sunrise” (1995), one of the most interesting love stories on film, romance resumed ten years later in “Before Sunset” (2004). Famous People magazine had put Julie Delpy on the list of 25 most beautiful people in 1995, but the actress has remained high status long. What you what probably do not know is that Julie Delpy, launched in theaters by Jean-Luc Godard, whose name was on the posters of many American films, is a Hollywood renegade thrown on the outside of a party by Oscar gala.
Delpy is not a common figure in Los Angeles, the city where it’s Hollywood. It has U.S. citizenship in 2001 but kept the identity of a French citizen. “I’m an adaptable nomad. I love Paris, but I lived in Los Angeles and New York in 1990. Love and London. My roots are in me”, said Delpy as it may be attached and detached from the places where they live.
It is true that she was dismissed by all the agencies for actors in the film colony, was refused an invitation to the Oscar party given by Vanity Fair and failed to convince either pimps to finance her films, but Julie Delpy has no airs of a star who believes things due to her and hangs in the refusals. Delpy has already directed seven films and is in production with “The Right Profile”.
Manages to do on film, despite all odds, because she works a lot, she write scripts, produce, play in them, sometimes composed the music for the soundtrack, as in the film “2 Days in Paris” for who collaborated with the band Nouvelle Vague. And in distribution uses people close to her and can build to give more than she can pay. Enough to remember that its best friends are Ethan Hawke, with whom she worked on “Before Sunrise” and “Before Sunset” and Adam Goldberg, with whom she played lead roles in “2 Days in Paris”.
