From September 14, at the Théâtre de la Madeleine in Paris, Mathilde and Emmanuelle Seigner play Marilyn Monroe and Simone Signoret in the play Bungalow 21 written by Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt, based on an original idea by Benjamin Castaldi. Wednesday evening on TCM, the two sisters were invited by Yann Barthès in "Quotidien" to talk about this unprecedented collaboration on stage. "Hello, delighted," Mathilde Seigner politely introduced herself to the presenter and his columnists.

Very quickly, in a first exchange with him, the actress stressed that she was discovering the show. "I've never come, it's the first time you've invited me," she said to a Yann Barthès stuttering in surprise. "No, but I say it anyway, I've never been invited in seven years!" To defend himself, the host of TMC pointed out that "Quotidien" had welcomed Emmanuelle Seigner several times. "Oh yes, but I don't, I shouldn't please this kind of show," she added, laughing at her briefly embarrassed interlocutor.

Ten minutes later, when Yann Barthès asked the guests around the table if they were Simone Signoret or Marilyn Monroe, journalist Sonia Devillers did not answer and preferred to ask the Seigner sisters how they managed to play together every night. "Oh, that's a nice question," Mathilde Seigner instinctively replied. "Are they rotten the ones I asked you just before?" said Yann Barthès in a general laugh. "Yes, they were pretty rotten," quipped his interlocutor.
