Audrey Tautou wants Chanel 2

Audrey Tautou says she wants to film a sequel to 'Coco Before Chanel', which focuses on the legendary French designers later years

Audrey Tautou wants to make a 'Coco Before Chanel' sequel.

The brunette actress was thrilled to be asked to play the legendary designer in her younger years, and won't rule out returning to the part in the future.

She told Empire magazine: "When I'm old enough, I might return to playing her. She was very interesting at the end of her life, when she became rude and alone and lonely. I think she became a caricature of herself, which is fascinating."

Audrey was determined to bring her interpretation of the French designer to life on the big screen, rather than try to imitate all her mannerisms.

She said: "I read her biography and looked at photographs, but I didn't want to play her as we know her in film footage, when she was older and life had hardened her.

"I wanted to show some elements in her youth that she would keep forever - her posture, her grace, the way she smokes - but also to let people feel that she was in interior chaos before her success."
