Audrey Tautou - Audrey Tautou says non to Hollywood move

Audrey Tautou won't move to Hollywood.

The 'Amelie' actress became a worldwide sensation after breaking out in the hit 2001 French drama, but she insists she has no desire to move to Los Angeles because of the ''pressure'' placed on actresses to constantly look perfect.

She said: ''I am very French and in Hollywood, the pressure is different. It's not the same in France. Of course, oui, the idea of being 'bankable' in France exists but it's not as unforgiving.

''People staring at every single millimetre of your body and what you wear, it is a huge pressure. Some people are happy with that but me, non.''

The 36-year-old star has previously taken lead roles in big American movies such as 'The Da Vinci Code', but feels she her ''ambition is not big enough'' for a permanent acting career in Hollywood.

Speaking to Radio Times magazine, she explained: ''Getting a role like 'The Da Vinci Code', that's fine. Once in a while, I would love to, but it doesn't work like that. They are not just going to come and pick me up as an actress with all the wonderful actresses they have.

''If you want to build a career in Hollywood, that is different. You have to move there and for a French person like me, I would have to be away from my friends and family. Cinema is my passion. I admire American directors and I love American movies, but my life is also something which is very important and my ambition is not big enough.''
