‘We’re always looking for that cheating magical bullet but it’s not right.

‘When Im not working, when I’m giving myself leeway, when Im not eating good, Im having too much wine, when Im not on camera, I look like it, that’s really it.

‘So that’s the big secret – there’s no secret!’

In French Exit, Michelle playsFrances Price – a widow who moves to Paris with her son and cat. The cat also happens to be her reincarnated husband.

Speaking about her role, Michelle said: ‘She’s very complicated and she’s damaged really, and shes very narcissistic and absent for so long.

‘She ultimately finds her son and reconnects and finds out she loves him and how much she missed.’

On working with the cat, she went on: ‘It was one of the first concerns that I had. I loved the script, I was very intrigued by this character, but it was one of those I didnt know how I was going to handle it.

She added:'When Im not working, when I'm giving myself leeway, when Im not eating good, Im having too much wine, when Im not on camera, I look like it, that's really it'

‘One of my first questions was “right what about this cat?” and I dont think [the director had] thought about it.

‘Who would have thought a cat could be trained. There were two cats they rotated, one was sweeter than the other but I kind of fell in love with them.’

Of this, Michelle said: ‘First of all Im incredibly honoured to be given this responsibility but I dont think these people realise how much these first ladies influence women’s issues, social issues.

‘A lot of them have really worked hard, they have pushed these issues forward. They didnt talk about cancer, they didnt talk about psychiatry, substance addiction… and [Betty] was so open and honest about it.

‘It was shocking but it was what people loved about her.’
