Kylie Minogue: New movie is blank page
Kylie Minogue was glad to begin with a "blank page" on the set of her new film.
The singer-and-actress stars as Eva/Jean in the Leos Carax-directed drama Holy Motors. The filmmaker had barely heard of the Australian superstar – meaning Kylie could start with a clean canvas."I wanted to take away all the things that have become second nature to me whenever I see a camera. I've been doing what I do for a long time. Normally it involves being that person – that 'Kylie,'" she explained. "This time I was able to go back to being 11 or 12 again, working on a set and being part of the gang. Blank page, open book."Kylie is proud of the film, which follows the story of a man who travels between multiple parallel lives. The 44-year-old star is amazed by the movie's concept, which she admits she's still getting to grips with."I need to see it again in order to form an opinion of what it all means?" she mused to British newspaper The Guardian. "I'm still flabbergasted. I mean, it's overwhelmingly beautiful? And it's not depressing, even though there's a lot of darkness in there, too. It's got talking cars? It's hilarious."
