White Lies’ Jack Lawrence-Brown Still Loves: Juliette Binoche

British trio White Lies—guitarist/vocalist Harry McVeigh, bassist Charles Cave and drummer Jack Lawrence-Brown—just released Ritual (Geffen/Fiction), which follows up To Lose My Life…, the band’s commercially successful 2009 debut. The 10-track sophomore LP was co-produced by Alan Moulder (Depeche Mode, Killers) and was written over a five-week period when White Lies wasn’t crisscrossing the globe in support of its first album. Though McVeigh, Cave and Lawrence-Brown are all barely old enough to drink legally in the U.S., the threesome has been playing together as a band since their mid-teens, first as Fear Of Flying, which released two singles produced by Stephen Street (Smiths, Blur), and then under the White Lies moniker. The trio will be guest editing all week. Read our brand new Q&A with them.

Lawrence-Brown: I have a poster of Juliette Binoche on the wall of my living room in my flat. It’s the cover of the film Three Colors: Blue by Krzysztof Kieślowski and is one of my favourite images of anything ever. There really is no subtle or intelligent way to explain why I would choose Juliette Binoche as something or someone to talk about. So I won’t. She is just a total babe. The one. She also happens to be one hell of an actor. Three Colors: Blue is my favourite film that she stars in (and also one of my favourite films ever), but she also puts in great performances in Hidden and Code Unknown by Michael Haneke. She does a pretty good job in the film adaptation of The Unbearable Lightness Of Being, although the movie itself doesn’t really do the original book much justice. Anyhow, for my money Juliette Binoche has got it all, and she makes me wish I were 10 years older, just so I could pretend I’d have a shot with her. Oh well.
