Born Beaumont, France and raised in Montluçon by her parents, Tautou became interested in acting at a young age. So, her parents started her acting lessons at the Cours Florent. Her parents raised her Catholic as well, but she says she's not "officially" a Catholic. Her Dad works as an oral surgeon and her mother is a teacher.
Tautou says she has no aversion toward English/American films and Hollywood, but prefers to remain in France, since the country is her home. She once proclaimed that she could "never" live in Los Angeles, since at the end of the day she is a French actress who belongs in France.
