Kylie Minogue - Madison Magazine - February 2013

Behold: the Kylie Minogue cover for Madison magazine February 2013 edition:

She says in the magazine interview, written by Fiona MacDonald.

“It’s the $64,000 question, I’m still not sure myself,” she laughs. “I think you need the right songs, you need to be driven and take risks… you know, you can list the things that make it work but I also firmly believe that you need a bit of luck on your side – a bit of serendipity to be in the right place at the right time.” - on 
admitting that, while guilty of working very hard, a lot of her greatest opportunities throughout the years have come to her.

The article continues:

Though she’s made a smattering of film appearances over the years, at the time, she says, “I wasn’t actively pursuing acting.” But she met French director Claire Denis “while we both had a head full of foils. Denis, a good friend of fellow director Leos Carax, would go on to suggest Minogue for a key role in his most recent film, the hard-to-describe (and fantastically off-kilter) drama Holy Motors, which opened at the Cannes Film Festival to broad critical acclaim and also stars Eva Mendes and Denis Lavant. 

The role of Eva Grace/Jean, a mysterious and haunting chanteuse who sings a gorgeous ballad near the film’s end, marks Minogue’s first serious role in decades. And it’s a compelling turn. “Holy Motors was a gift from heaven,” she gushes, noting that “Carax knew really nothing about me except for my duet with Nick Cave.” 

The anonymity was a relief for Minogue, who is the first to admit that her film resume is littered with some “turkey” choices. “He must’ve seen what he believed he could extract from me, and trusted his gut instinct. It was an intense experience and I worked myself to the bone because I didn’t want to let him down. But God!” she lets out that famously breathy sound, “I loved every second of it.”
