"Today, I'm in a space where I can say that I have launched my production house and I want to direct. So I have the courage to call people out and be like, 'You did this, you did that and I don't want to work with you', but look at me. I'm not that naive either. I'm also making very smart business choices. I can do my own thing now, I am self-sufficient. So let me take the liberty of - the luxury of - having a little public sulking here, that I'm upset with these people. I won't say that I am that impulsive also that I would just say things which harm my living, my bread and butter and my existence as a working woman."
A year later, Camus further angered Soviet authorities when he publicly supported the Russian author Boris Pasternak, a fellow Nobel laureate and author of Doctor Zhivago , a work banned by Stalin. Corriere della Sera concludes that there were enough reasons for "Moscow to order [Camus's] assassination, in the usual professional style of its KGB agents". If true, it would reopen wounds among the millions of devotees of Camus's work. At the burial of the author of L'Etranger (The Outsider), La Peste (The Plague) and Le Mythe de Sisyphe (The Myth of Sisyphus) in the Lourmarin Cemetery near Vaucluse on the Côte d'Azur, one of Camus's coffin-bearers was a celebrated anarchist. The local football team also turned out, demonstrating his status as a man of the people as well as an intellectual. Even last year, Nicolas Sarkozy, the French president, and a Camus fan, tried unsuccessfully to have his remains moved to the Panthéon, the last resting place of France's great and good.
