Jacqueline Bisset has revealed that working on new movie Welcome To New York was a "passionate and volatile" experience.
Speaking at the Los Angeles premiere of new American TV series The Bridge, the 68-year-old Bullitt actress said: "I think it's pretty realistic. I enjoyed working with Gerard and Abel, it's quite passionate for Abel, quite passionate and volatile."
The French-speaking star plays Simone, the wife of influential financier Devorough.
Asked how close the movie is to the story of the real-life economist, Jacqueline said: "Some of it is quite close and some of it isn't but I don't want to say any more."
Strauss-Kahn made headlines around the world when he was accused of assaulting a chambermaid at a New York hotel in 2011, when he was poised to stand as a French presidential candidate.
He later reached an undisclosed financial settlement with his accuser.
