French actress Audrey Tautou is convinced she will never be a Hollywood star because her ambition "is not big enough".

Tautou shot to fame in 2001 when she starred in Amelie, and went onto appear in hits such as 2006's The Da Vinci Code and Coco Before Chanel in 2009, but Tautou has no plans to follow Marion Cotillard to Hollywood and become an in-demand movie star.

She tells Britain's Radio Times magazine, "Getting a role, like in The Da Vinci Code, that's fine. Once in a while, I would love to, but it doesn't work like that. They are not just going to come and pick me up as an actress, with all the wonderful actresses they have.

"If you want to build a career in Hollywood, that is different. You have to move there. And, for a French person like me... I would have to be away from my friends and family. Cinema is my passion. I admire American directors and love American movies. But my life is also something which is very important, and my ambition is not big enough.

"In Hollywood, there is a very important marketing, business, branding side. And I really don't think I could be formatted for that. People staring at every single millimetre of your body and what you wear, it is a huge pressure. Some people are happy with that, but me, non."
