1. Audrey Tautou is named as Audrey because her mother admired Audrey Hepburn so much. 
2. Tautou was fond of monkeys and wanted to be a primatologist. Shen even investigated the career path at the career center but no one could provide any information for her. Only then, she switched her dream to becoming an actress. 
3. When Tautou began acting lessons in Paris, she was astonished by all the gorgeous and long-legged women she encounter on the street. Fearing the fierce competition, Tautou, who is 160 cm tall, thought of escaping back to her hometown. Later, she discovered that there was an agency near her residence. 
4. Tautou was majoring in Modern Literature at the Institut Catholique de Paris. She would have preferred to go to art school but this 'safety net' could appease her parents' worries so that she could keep chasing her dream of acting. 
5. Jean-Pierre Jeunet, the director of Amélie explained why he picked Tautou: "She came, she gaffed, she turned reddish, her ears were in a funny position and her hair was relaxed. In five minutes, she gave me the heart of the character, a petite young girl who would like to be a lady and will become a woman." 
6. Tautou takes pictures of every one of her interviewers because she doesn't want them to become just some blurred images in her mind. 
7. Tautou explained why shy walked away from Hollywood after The Da Vinci Code. 1. It wasn't the way I want to live my life. 2. I certainly don't want to be in Thingy Blah Blah 3, if you know what I mean. 
8. When studying the script of Thérèse Desqueyroux, Tautou thought that every single line Thérèse spoke was not what she really wanted to say. Tautou wrote down Thérèse's interior dialogue, parallel to the script for each scene. 
9. The cartoon at the end of Mood Indigo was crafted by Tautou. The short took animation spent her hours and hours. 
10. Tautou loves to give herself personal projects, like writing and self-portrait photograph project. But she is not confident enough to present them to others and she describes the progress of her creation as 'very, very, very slow'. 
Thank you
