Annelise Hesme: Spoiler? I Hardly Know Her.

I wonder if it's frustrating to be an aspiring actor on the silver screen, and to find one's greatest success in a television ad for a tin-can of an automobile like the Renault Clio?

If it is, you wouldn't know it from watching the adorable 30ish French actress Annelise Hesme:

Although she's appeared in a few movies, she's best known as "the gorgeous French woman" in the "Ben and Sophie" car ads from about 3 years back. Here's the first one.
