Bisset on volatile movie shoot

Jacqueline Bisset stars in Welcome To New York

Jacqueline Bisset has revealed that working on new movie Welcome To New York was a "passionate and volatile" experience.

The film is loosely based on the rise and fall of French economist and former head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

The movie is written and directed by Bad Lieutenant director Abel Ferrara and is slated for release next year.

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.

Leo:

Don't confuse love with lust. Having a physical relationship with someone isn't an indication of emotional commitment. If you're with someone who doesn't want to spend time with you outside the bedroom, move on to greener pastures. It's sometimes difficult to face the truth of a situation like this. When in doubt, talk to a trusted friend. They'll give you an honest assessment of this bond. A relative may ask to come to their rescue. Fortunately, you have the necessary resources to bail them out.More
