Julie Delpy is a French-American actress born on December 21, 1969 in Paris, France to parents Albert Delpy and Marie Pillet. When she was still a child, she originally dreamed of becoming a director someday that’s why she took a directing summer course while she was attending at the New York University. In 1978, she was featured on screen for the first time and was cast on the film Guerres civiles en France by which she was credited as Julie Pillet. She then portrayed several roles afterwards before she got her breakthrough in 2004 when she co-write and starred the film Before Sunset and worked with co-star Ethan Hawke. She gained more prominence in 2007 when she directed, wrote, produced, and starred the film 2 Days in Paris and earned a nomination for Independent Spirit Award for Best First Film as well as nomination for César Award for Best Writing.
Julie is a healthy eater. In fact, she usually stays away from quickly-made foods. “Food to me represents feeling good,” she said in an interview. “I can’t stand bad food – things like sandwiches, junk food, ice cream, over-creamy stuff, and greasy, fried food. Yuck. Everything that’s gross and prepared too fast.”
She also shared that she started dieting when she became an actress. “I didn’t start dieting till I started acting,” she shared. “The director, who was very short and skinny, wanted me to weigh the same as him. He decided everyone on the set should be his weight. He made me go down too far, and then I got sick. I hate dieting because I love food. Dieting is the most boring thing in the world. I hate exercising as well. I have gained a little weight recently due to stress and hopefully I will lose it soon. Not through dieting though.” Now that’s a motivation!
