Steven Spielberg - Steven Spielberg Cast Actress Based On Weather Girl Tv Stint

Steven Spielberg hired actress Charlotte Le Bon for his new film based on her stint as a weather girl on French Tv.

The Canadian model/actress stars alongside Helen Mirren in the new film The Hundred-Foot Journey, and producer Spielberg reveals the Le Bon didn't even have to audition for the role, thanks to her standout skills on the French chat show Le Grand Journal.

Spielberg tells Entertainment Tonight, "I found her on French television doing the weather on a daytime French talk show and cast her based on that."

Le Bon, who only has a few French films on her resume, adds that if "Steven Spielberg says he discovered you, I guess I'll try to take as much as I can from it".

Le Bon, 27, has already reaped the benefits of their friendship - her next project is The Walk, directed by Spielberg's friend Robert Zemeckis, and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as French high-wire artist Philippe Petit.
