This was a family that had no problems and everyone loved itInterview of the week: Christopher Walken Feb 27, 2003
Christopher Walken is a star. I was very excited to meet him because he's very famous and French people like him very much and everyone is a little scared of him. It's like, 'That guy is a strange guy who came from another planet.' (Laughs) He's going to be my husband, I was a little afraid, and when I met him, he's a very sweet man. He was scared, like I was, the first day of shooting, and very anxious and has a big sense of humor and loves cats, like me. There were cats on the set and he was talking to the cats all the timeEntertainment Today: Showbiz News Dec 20, 2002
