The actress revealed that the famous seven-minute lesbian sex scene in La Vida de Adèle required more than 100 takes for a single sequence and took 10 days to film. Nearly a decade later, Seydoux was asked by The Hollywood Reporter if an intimacy coordinator would have changed the dynamic on set, to which the actress replied, “No, not really,” laughing openly. Seydoux added: “It was something beyond that. It was the whole movie, not just the sex scenes. The way we shot this movie was crazy. The guy is crazy”, referring to the controversial director Kechiche.

After the premiere of La Vida de Adèle in Cannes in 2013, the film’s production team issued a union statement against Kechiche, denouncing an “anarchic” work environment. The filmmaker, in turn, threatened to take legal action against Léa Seydoux for sharing “slanderous” information about her days on set. So far, cast and crew members have been adamant about how unnerving the experience of filming this installment was.
Despite all the controversy, Seydoux maintains that her favorite Cannes experience was walking up to receive the Palme d’Or for Life of Adèle and being recognized as co-writer of the film with Kechiche. The actress stated the following:
It took a year of my life and I gave everything for that movie. It really changed my life on so many different levels.
