Pop music princess Kylie Minogue is taking a bit of a break from her music career to get back into her old occupation … as actress. Apparently, Kylie just wrapped one film project and has started a new on. This weekend Kylie surfaced on the Paris, France set of a new film titled Holly Motors. From the look of the photo below, it would appear that Kylie is playing a flight attendant … or something. Check out the photo below and read the known deets of this new film.
THE movie career of Kylie Minogue continues to roll on. Australia’s singing budgie, who recently wrapped up filming on the lesbian werewolf drama Jack and Diane, has popped up on the set of Holly Motors, a French movie from acclaimed director Leos Carax. Dressed in a blue uniform, Kylie Minogue was seen shooting scenes in Paris overnight – and looking very Jean Seberg-esque in short cropped blonde wig, with co-star Juliette Binoche looking on nearby. It’s understood the film has been shooting in the French capital for several weeks. It is unclear exactly how big a role Minogue, who began her career as an actress on TV teen soap The Henderson Kids, actually plays in the flick. According to Cineuropa, the film follows 24 hours in the life of a person who travels between different lives, including that of a “murderer, beggar, CEO, monstrous creature and father of a family”. The film is the latest in a series of roles for the 43-year-old Minogue, who appears to be re-igniting her acting career in the wake of her most recent – and some say final – world tour, the Aphrodite: Les Folies stage show. She recently took on the role of a heavily tattooed lesbian in US indie film Jack and Diane, which is due for release next year, alongside Ellen Page and Riley Keough. The pop singer admitted back in 1999 that she hoped to one day revive an acting career that has also included roles in TV cult show Doctor Who, Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge and The Delinquents. “My day-time fantasy is that there is a director somewhere who will be thinking that kind of way but putting it into the context of the film. I would love to do more movies,” she said at the time. I really got waylaid and sidetracked. I started out as an actress and I thought that’s what I would do.”
I LOVE actress Kylie. She was fantastic in Moulin Rouge as the Green Fairy, Street Fighter as Cammi AND Bio Dome as the sexy scientist (not to mention her guest stint on Dr. Who a few years ago). I’m guessing that this role will likely be something more substantial and serious. I mean, that pixie wig she’s wearing looks pretty serious to me. BUT as much as I love actress Kylie … I vastly prefer pop star Kylie. Still … I’m curious about these new film projects she is working on.
