Rossy the dragon
True to her origins, Rossy de Palma arranges the meeting in a place that resembles her; Hotel Banke, a bank turned luxury hotel with a definite Iberian feel. Combining red, black, gold and even fighting bulls, this somewhat baroque place maintains a laid-back atmosphere despite its impressive architecture.
After some delicious, no frills, pan con tomate and serrano ham at the bar, Rossy talks about her passions:
Starting with her acting career; from her beginnings with Pedro Almodovar and the long collaboration that ensued to her many roles in French cinema, her love of theatre, the actress having taken to the stage in plays, performances and musicals.
Because Rossy de Palma, whose voice and accent are as famous as her physique, is also a singer. After her stint on Cunnilingus mon amour, a track from the album La mécanique du cœur by French band Dionysos, she lends her voice to a character in the upcoming animation feature The boy with the cuckoo-clock heart, directed by Mathias Malzieu, singer of the band and author of the book which inspired it.
What fewer people know is that Rossy de Palma is also an artist whose works can be admired at art shows in Parisian galleries. Seduced by her generosity and originality, Louis Vuitton asked her to create a typically Hispanic accessory, the fan.
This highly symbolic object, baptised The eye of conscience, is in line with the surrealist tradition Rossy embodies.
A strong personality, known for her uncompromising, resilient character and matching sense of humour, the means of artistic expressions she discusses today reveal the star’s more subtle sensibilities and gentle side.
