Quotes from others:

"When I wrote the script [for Ils se marierent et eurent beaucoup des enfants] I thought... who will be this guy for whom all women will fall? And... right away I thought about [Johnny]!"
-- Yvan Attal

"When I wrote the [Virgin Mega store] scene, suddenly I realized who can do this, so I talked to [Johnny's] assistants. I told them very simply. I said 'here's my first film, here's the script it's a very small part so I give you everything and I hope he says yes and I hope I can meet him to explain what I can do' and the assistant rang me back and said, you know [Johnny] is in the south of France now and you can go and meet him... and I know he likes Charlotte as an actress too so we went there and we met. We talked about a lot of things and about the subject of the film. He's my age, roughly, and he has a girl and children like me and I thought I'd be there for 10 minutes, but we spent the night together talking. I wanted to write more suddenly, because I like him as an actor so I wrote the scene where they get into an elevator and the elevator goes and they are going to heaven and when I wrote the going into heaven, again it was just a way to finish, to write the feeling of it, but it's my... that gave me the idea to shoot it that way so it was very funny to shoot."
-- Yvan Attal
