“I had a baby at 19 and was a grandmother by 39. Now, my children lend me their children to take them off to Brittany. It’s divine. I’m quite exceptionally lucky. I’ve never had a week without having all three of my daughters on the telephone. My eldest daughter, Kate [Barry], looks most like me. She’s a photographer. She had a Polaroid camera in her hand from a young age and photographed her sisters all the time. Charlotte [Gainsbourg] was so miraculous and true in Jane Eyre—my youngest daughter, Lou [Doillon] and I sat there with [a] kitchen-roll between us sobbing. Lou has been such a darling and so supportive of her sisters, and so intellectual.”

-Jane Birkin tells The Guardian, (2013)
