Berenice Bejo only wears jewellery for red carpet events because she knows it is important to ''play the game''
The 'Artist' actress favours a more low-key look in her everyday style but is happy to don jewellery for high-profile events because she thinks it is important to live up to the expectations of being a star.
She said: ''I don't usually wear jewellery but it's part of the character you have to create when you go to a red carpet.
''It's very important to play the game and give people something a little bit more glamorous and you know, not too normal. I love it when actors make you dream a little bit as they used to do.
''In my real life I'm totally different. That's what's funny. When I'm promoting a movie or doing awards I have to be one Berenice but you can't wear Louis Vuitton dresses or Chopard earrings to pick up your kids or buy
The 35-year-old beauty will attend the opening and closing ceremonies at Cannes Film Festival this year and is already planning what accessories she will wear.
She told Britain's HELLO! magazine: ''I've already chosen two Chopard pieces for Cannes. Earrings and maybe something for The Hair. The Chopard Red Carpet 2012 Collection for Cannes is beautiful. I like the rings, the Pink stone is so beautiful.''
