HUSTLE-BUSTLE: Saïd Taghmaoui was buzzing Friday afternoon at the Kris Van Assche show, just a day after his latest movie, “American Hustle,” received 10 nominations for the Academy Awards.
“We’re very happy,” he gushed.
Unlike many Gallic thespians, Taghmaoui’s English is spot on. “This is my 19th movie in English,” the Franco-Moroccan actor boasted.
Next on his busy agenda is a new HBO/BBC television series based on the Madeleine McCann missing-child case, which starts filming Feb. 2.
“I play the policeman who investigates,” he revealed. “It’s very mysterious; all is not as it seems.”
Further down the front row, Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing was out supporting his friend Van Assche and warned that nothing more should be read into his presence at the show.
“Sometimes people forget in fashion that you can just have friends,” he said.
