  • Known for both her blonde, ethereal beauty and her considerable talent, Julie Delpy is one of the most popular French actresses of her generation. Born to show business parents in Paris on December 21, 1969, Delpy was discovered at age 14 by director Jean-Luc Godard, who cast her in his 1985 Détective. The young actress had her first starring role two years later as the title character in Bertrand Tavernier's La Passion Béatrice, and then gained worldwide prominence with her portrayal of a young pro-Nazi eager to produce babies for the Fuhrer in Agneiszka Holland's Europa, Europa (1991).Subsequent efforts to make Delpy a mainstream Hollywood actress in such films as The Three Musketeers (1993) were largely resisted by Delpy herself, who demonstrated a preference for appearing in the small, thought-provoking films best appreciated at cinema festivals. She made some of her more memorable appearances in Killing Zoe (1994), which cast her as a kind-hearted prostitute; Krzysztof Kieslowski 's Trois Couleurs: Blanc (1994), in which she played a young woman who divorces her hairdresser husband because of his impotency; and Richard Linklater's Before Sunrise (1995), in which she gave an excessively charming portrayal of a woman who has a 24-hour romance with a young American (Ethan Hawke) she meets on a train.Delpy continued to be most visible in small, quirky films, as evidenced by her roles in L.A. Without a Map (1998), and But I'm a Cheerleader (1999), the latter of which -- a comedy about a rehab house for gay and lesbian teens -- cast her as a lipstick lesbian. In addition to the steady stream of parts in little-seen independent films, Delpy took on a recurring role on the hit NBC medical drama ER in 2001.In 2004, Delpy reteamed with Linklater and Hawke for the sequel Before Sunset, a film the three are also credited with writing together.In 2007 she wrote, directed, edited, and starred in the romantic comedy 2 Days in Paris opposite fellow Richard Linklater alum Adam Goldberg. She followed that directorial effort with The Countess in 2009 and 2 Days in New York in 2011. That same year, rumors swirled of a possible sequel to Before Sunset.

QUOTES FROM Julie Delpy CHARACTERS

Celine
Even being alone--it's better than being with a lover and feeling lonely.
Celine
The true work of improving things is in the little achievements of the day, and that's what you need to enjoy.
Celine
Who wants to be Joan of Ark? She was burned at the stake and a virgin.
Jesse
I...I...I thought I was gonna totally lose it in there. When I first saw you...I mean, how did you even know I was going to be here?
Celine
Well, it's my favorite bookstore in Paris. I, um...You can sit down for hours and read. I love it. There's fleas, but, you know...
Jesse
I heard this story once about when the Germans were occupying Paris and they had to retreat back. They wired Notre Dame to blow, but they had to leave one guy in charge of hitting the switch. And the guy, the soldier, he couldn't do it. You know, he just sat there, knocked out by how beautiful the place was. And then when the allied troops came in, they found all the explosives just lying there and the switch unturned, and they found the same thing at Sacre Couer, Eiffel Tower. Couple other places I think...
Celine
Is that true?
Jesse
I don't know. I always liked the story, though.
Jesse
I don't know. I always liked the story though.
Jesse
Skinnier, I think. A little thinner.
Celine
Did you think I was fat before?
Jesse
[laughing] No!
Jesse
No!
Celine
Yeah, you thought I was a fatty. No, you thought I was a fatty! Yeah, you, you wrote a book about a fat French girl!
Celine
We all get dragged through our parents' lives.
Celine
Now I know why Sylvia Plath put her head in a toaster.
Jesse
It was an oven.
Celine
The world is fucked by unemotional, rational men deciding shit.
Celine
One of the perks of being over 35 is that you don't get raped as much.
Celine
Well, it must be one hell of a night we're about to have.
Celine
Feminism is made by males so they can ask the females to free their bodies.
Celine
Media is the new form of fascism.
Celine
Each time I wear black, or like, lose my temper, or say anything about anything, you know, they always go, "Oh it's so French. It's so cute." Ugh! I hate that!
Celine
I used to think that if none of your family or friends knew you were dead, it was like not really being dead. People can invent the best and the worst for you.
Jesse
Oh, God, why didn't we exchange phone numbers and stuff? Why didn't we do that?
Celine
Because we were young and stupid.
Jesse
Do you think we still are?
Celine
I guess when you're young, you just believe there'll be many people with whom you'll connect with. Later in life, you realize it only happens a few times.
Jesse
And you can screw it up, you know, misconnect
Jesse
And you can screw it up, you know, misconnect.
Celine
Memories are wonderful things, if you don't have to deal with the past.
Jesse
In the months leading up to my wedding, I was thinking about you all the time. I mean, even on my way there; I'm in the car, a buddy of mine is driving me downtown and I'm staring out the window, and I think I see you, not far from the church, right? Folding up an umbrella and walking into a deli on the corner of 13th and Broadway. And I thought I was going crazy, but now I think it probably was you.
Celine
I lived on 11th and Broadway.
Jesse
You see?
Celine
Memory is a wonderful thing if you don't have to deal with the past.
Jesse
Life's hard. It's supposed to be. If we didn't suffer, we'd never learn anything.
Celine
But not knowing is not so bad. The point is to be looking, searching, to stay hungry.
Celine
The only time I get to think now is when I take a shit at the office... I'm starting to associate thoughts with the smell of shit!
Celine

Celine
Women explore for eternity in the vast garden of sacrifice.
Celine
Still there. Still there. Still there. Gone.
Celine
This is how relationships start falling apart.
Celine
I've realised what it is - I've just stopped loving you. That's it.
Celine
I've realized what it is - I've just stopped loving you. That's it.
Celine
Still there. Still there. Still there. Gone.
Celine
I feel close to you.
Jesse
Yeah…?
Jesse
Yeah?
Celine
But sometimes…I don’t know… I feel like you’re breathing helium, and I’m breathing oxygen.
Celine
But sometimes, I don't know? I feel like you're breathing helium and I'm breathing oxygen.
Celine
If there's any kind of magic in this world it must be in the attempt of understanding someone sharing, something. I know, it's almost impossible to succeed .... but who cares really? The answer must be in the attempt.
Celine

Celine
I'm dying inside...I'm dying because I'm so numb. I don't feel pain or excitement, I'm not even bitter, I'm just...
Jesse
You think you're the one dyin' inside? My life... is 24/7 bad.
Celine
Each time I wear black, or like, lose my temper, or say anything about anything, you know, they always go, "Oh it's so French. It's so cute." Ugh! I hate that!
Celine

Celine
How have I changed?
Jesse
You used to wear your hair down
Celine
Oh you mean like that (releases her hair from her ponytail),What else?
Celine
Oh you mean like that [releases her hair from her ponytail] What else?
Jesse
You face is thinner...
Celine
You mean i was fat? Oh my god you wrote a book about a fat french girl. (puts her head in between her hands)
Celine

Barbara Branden
I'm asking you to show compassion.
Ayn Rand
Why?
Barbara Branden
It's what humans do.
Barbara Branden
Can you dance to this?
Richard
Unless you're Amish.
Barbara Branden
The critics had called her the leader of a cult, a dangerous threat to public morality. Her name was Ayn Rand, and I loved her.
Celine
I always feel this pressure of being a strong and independent icon of womanhood, and without making it look my whole life is revolving around some guy. But loving someone, and being loved means so much to me. We always make fun of it and stuff. But isn't everything we do in life a way to be loved a little more?
Celine
Even though I reject most of the religious things I can't help but feeling for all those people that come here lost or in pain, guilt, looking for some kind of answers. It fascinates me how a single place can join so much pain and happiness for so many generations.
Celine
I believe if there's any kind of God it wouldn't be in any of us, not you or me but just this little space in between. If there's any kind of magic in this world it must be in the attempt of understanding someone sharing something. I know, it's almost impossible to succeed but who cares really? The answer must be in the attempt.
Celine
Isn't everything we do in life a way to be loved a little more?
Celine
Baby, you are gonna miss that plane.
Celine
Even being alone, it's better than sitting next to a lover and feeling lonely.
Jesse
Look, I am just so happy, all right, to be with you.I am. I am so glad you didn't forget about me, okay?
Jesse
Look, I am just so happy, all right, to be with you. I am. I am so glad you didn't forget about me, okay?
Celine
No, I didn't. And it pisses me off, okay? You come here to paris all romantic, and married.Okay? Screw you.
Celine
No, I didn't. And it pisses me off, okay? You come here to Paris all romantic, and married. Okay? Screw you.
Celine
You don't want to see me again?
Jesse
No, of course I do. If somebody gave me the choice right now of to never see you again or to marry you, I would marry you.
Jesse
I think we should.
Celine
Then it's like some male fantasy.Meet a French girl in train, fuck her and never see her again.
Celine
Well, he convinced me.I mean, actually, I was ready to get off the train with him after talking to him a short while. He was so sweet, I couldn't help it.In the lounge car, he began to talk about him as a boy seeing his great grandmother's ghost.I think that's when I fell for him.Just the idea of this little boy with all those beautiful dreams.He trapped me. And he's so cute.He has beautiful blue eyes, nice pink lips, greasy hair.I love it.He is kind of tall, and he's a little clumsy.I like to feel his eyes on me when I look away.He kind of kisses like an adolescent. It's so cute.
Marion
I'm going to be 38, I'm fat, I'm a pain in the ass.
Mingus
But you're French...
Celine
Baby, you are gonna miss that plane.
Marion
I like you, I would like to be your friend when we break up. Whenever we break up. No, if we break up. I would like you even if we were not together.
Celine
The only person I could really hurt is myself.
Celine
I AM THE MOST HARMLESS PERSON....ONLY PERSON I CAN THINK OF HURTING IS MYSELF
Celine

You realize that most of the people that you meet are trying to get somewhere better, trying to make a little bit more cash, trying to get a little more respect, have more people admire them, you know...it's just exhausting!

Celine
There are so many things I want to do, but I end up doing not much.
Celine
You can never replace anyone because everyone is made up of such beautiful specific details.
Celine
So, I want to try something.
Jesse
What?
Celine
[hugs him] I want to see if you stay together or if you dissolve into molecules.
Jesse
How am I doing?
Celine
Still here.
Jesse
Good, I like being here.
Celine
Memories are wonderful things, if you don't have to deal with the past.
Celine
When you talked earlier about after a few years how a couple would begin to hate each other by anticipating their reactions or getting tired of their mannerisms-I think it would be the opposite for me. I think I can really fall in love when I know everything about someone-the way he's going to part his hair, which shirt he's going to wear that day, knowing the exact story he'd tell in a given situation. I'm sure that's when I know I'm really in love.
Celine
Isn't everything we do in life a way to be loved a little more?
