Just weeks after her new movie "Cornouaille" hit the box office, Vanessa Paradis garnered herself a little added exposure by covering the October 2012 issue of Jalousemagazine.

The newly-single 39-year-old French beauty looked enchanting in a tweed jacket with Chanel Lurex accessorized with a Maison Michel suede beret and cotton, lace and silk Hanro panties for the Alexei Hay shot front page while dishing about life as an actress and why she's not in more international films.

A few highlights from Miss Paradis' interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Jalouse!

On her Odile character:
"This is a woman in control, which certainly leaves no room for pain but also not happiness. She buried her suffering child to follow a mapped highway from which she does not deviate. Having to go to Britain and these encounters will force her to open to life."

On why she's not in more international productions:
"What intrigues people was that I spent a portion of my life in Los Angeles, but in fact I am absolutely satisfied by everything I do in France."
