The Before Sunset star doesn’t just act in 2 Days in Paris, an indie comedy (out now) about a couple whose romance unravels in the City of Light. Delpy also directed, co-produced, wrote, edited, and scored it. ”It’s much less stressful to do all that stuff than to wait by the phone to get a part,” says Delpy, who cleverly pitched a plot akin to Before Sunset‘s to win financing — and then made her film much edgier.
