Delpy returns this year as screenwriter and actress playing 'Celine' in Before Midnight which is the sequel to 2004's Before Sunset with co-star Ethan Hawke. Julie was wonderfully real and charming at last year's Sundance press conference for 2 Days in New York. Her father was incredibly candid.
She explained in 2012, "I left acting to direct because I reject botox and I resent always having to be pretty."
Delpy's 75 year-old dad who sat a few chairs over, said via his French/English interpreter ,"I embraced acting only because I love pretty women."
