Clémence Poésy likes thriller movies that aren't "bloody."
The 33-year-old star can currently be seen in the suspense-filled title 'The Ones Below' - about a couple who are expecting their first child who experience a few sinister turns - and said she was attracted to film because of its plot, but would have been turned off if there was more gore involved because it detracts from the story.
She said: "For me it was about the storytelling. I was really interested in the way this story was constructed, the way you never really know if what you think is real actually is. Especially with a moment of someone's life [post childbirth] that can be quite blurry. I like thrillers when nothing gets bloody, when it's about what's happening in the mind."
Meanwhile, the French beauty - whose other credits include 'Birdsong', 'In Bruges' and '127 Hours' - never watches her performances for fear that she will become self conscious.
She told Stylist magazine: "I'd just be thinking of all my mistakes and how I hadn't done it the way I wish I had... I don't want to be conscious of the things I need to change. I never look at the monitor when I'm filming because of the self-awareness."
