Gainsbourg: ‘I was different as a singer’

By Mayer Nissim,, Sunday, May 23 2010

Charlotte Gainsbourg has said that she enjoys juggling her careers as an actress and a singer.

The daughter of French superstar Serge Gainsbourg recently toured the US as a musician before appearing at Cannes to support her new film The Tree.

Gainsbourg told the press conference for the film: ‘It’s very wonderful to go from one to the other – from singer to actress.

« I don’t know what it was when I was in the US when the concerts were taking place. I was different. It was another moment of life. I hope I get back to that. I’ve got a little bit of apprehension, but there’s no link between the two. »

On having to sing for one scene in her new film, she added: « I had to sing Bach. I found it extremely intimidating. I was very uneasy about it.

« Have you ever tried to sing Bach? I didn’t have the necessary fantasy – I just couldn’t manage. »

Je tweet, je blog, je tumblr, je facebook, je Google+ sur Charlotte et Serge Gainsbourg. Je me souviens être tombée sous le charme de Charlotte dans l’Effrontée, de fil en aiguille, j’ai ensuite développé une passion pour la musique de Serge. Qui j’aime le plus des deux ? Je ne saurais dire.
