“It’s very nice to hear those compliments. I always think people lie to my face. I’m always like, ‘But really, tell me. Tell me.’ But no, that’s what I hear. I told Ruben that it must be hard to get out of “The Square”, which was so well received, and to have such high expectations from everyone, to be here, it must be tough. So I said, for me, it’s like I’ve already won. I’m already in Cannes with the film. It’s so incredible. Everything is just icing on the cake at this point for me, you know?” said the actress during an interview during the Cannes Film Festival in May 2022.
