5. Never smiles
And the truth is, we love Garrel not for his radiant smile, but for his scowl. You rarely see the actor smiling in the movies and in the pictures. As Louis himself says, people even began to make memes out of this. One day on the shooting photographer asked him to smile and took a picture on the polaroid. When they saw the result, they unanimously came to the conclusion that he should not smile. Garrel himself speaks about himself with a shade of irony - because of the big nose, he considers himself ugly and therefore pleases the audience only with a restrained smile during the exit on the red carpet.
