I'm not really a femme fatale.

I’m not really a femme fatale.
Carla Bruni
I think it’s not a femme fatale when someone is not doing it to manipulate men or be like a black widow. She loves him. She does it out of love. She wants him so badly to stay with her.
Salma Hayek
It’s not often that I’m being called femme fatale.
Elodie Yung
My dream role would be to play a femme fatale in a Quentin Tarantino movie.
Meaghan Rath
It’s interesting to see the more femme that you present yourself, the more people sort of dehumanize you.
Justin Tranter
I’d go to lesbian parties. I felt like I wasn’t hard enough to be butch, but I wasn’t wearing heels and a skirt – I wasn’t femme – so I felt like I was sort of invisible.
Dee Rees
There’s something very, very liberating about Harley Quinn. Much more so than a character like Catwoman or Poison Ivy. Those are great characters. But then again, those characters are more of the femme fatale and the temptress roles.
Paul Dini
Perfume is like a personal signature, which is why I like to mix my own. For years I’ve paired Femme by Rochas with Shalimar and love the results.
Danielle Steel
My sex appeal lies in suits and ties, but my body is femme.
Rain Dove
I always wanted to be a femme fatale. Even when I was a young girl, I never really wanted to be a girl. I wanted to be a woman.
Diane von Furstenberg
I really like action-dramas like ‘The Professional’ or ‘La Femme Nikita.’ I’d really like to be in a movie like that.
Cassie Steele
I would love to play the Femme Fatale or an action role like Trinity in the Matrix or something like that. You know, a part with a lot of costume changes.
Josie Maran
Let’s call a spade a spade: when people look at me, they say, ‘Oh, she’s the androgynous one.’ I’ll tell you what type of character I would never be offered out there: The femme fatale. Or the white-trash, heterosexual hillbilly.
Katherine Moennig
I think, almost, the film industry thinks that by making gay characters super masculine, it’s an attempt at saying being gay is OK if you act like straight people. I don’t think we should just have gay characters who are 100 percent femme, either. I just think it’s about that mix and creating more diverse gay characters.
Josie Totah
I think I was scared of the drag thing, as a lot of gay boys are. It’s sort of knocked out of you in junior high. I wouldn’t find guys who were very feminine attractive. Then, doing ‘Hedwig,’ I got to be man and woman, really butch and really femme at the same time, and I realized, this is kind of the ideal.
John Cameron Mitchell
I wanted to play a mother again. I thought it would be interesting to play the mother of an older child. And it was also the kind of part I’ve been looking for my whole career, actually, in film. You know, just to play a femme fatale who’s very smart, and wicked.
Sigourney Weaver
Femme people exist, and they are layered and they are complex and they are intelligent.
Nico Santos
I’d love to play a femme fatale in a film noir. I’m thinking of one of those roles that Lauren Bacall or Bette Davis might have played. What I wouldn’t like is to suddenly find myself being cast, as many senior actresses seem to be, as the abbess in a convent.
Diana Quick
I resent it when they write the part of a woman who’s just a sexy femme fatale who seduces people to ger her way, perpetrating the myth that that’s how woman have to operate, instead of using their brains or their wit.
Teri Garr
I’m a very femme gay boy, so what better way to express that than through drag? It truly is the greatest mix of art forms.
I’m from New York; I’ve been in show business all my life. I’m a wild and crazy gal, yet I always play these soft, warm, loving earth mothers. It’s a pain in the butt. I’m a femme fatale!
Bonnie Bedelia
There is this film called ‘La Femme Nikita.’ I want to play something like that. This woman with a gun in her hand but with tears in her eyes. I would love to play that kind of vulnerability on screen.
Sarita Choudhury
I’m portraying out characters, I’m portraying femme characters, characters that are really outside of the box. I never thought I would get that opportunity to portray those characters at all, much less have a career that I have.
Nico Santos
I’ve been playing sexually aware women most of my life. At this point I expected to be playing moms and wives. It’s exciting to play a femme fatale.
Kim Cattrall
We live in a culture that does not encourage women to be epic heroes of their own Big Stories but the mothers and lovers and wives and mistresses and muses and personal assistants, the femme fatales and fantasies and manic pixie dream girls, in someone else’s Big Story, and this someone else is usually a dude.
Justine Musk
