Hollywood So French!

When we talk about France and French people in Hollywood, it’s always the same thing: Love, seduction, arts, Parisian women, the French-lover, the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe. Passion, transgression. So many words that the whole world instantly connects to France. An image shaped by American cinema since the beginning of the 20th century and which still sticks to the French today. Here is the history of French people in Hollywood and the clichés that have accompanied them.
