Frank Leboeuf won the World Cup with France in 1998 and since retiring has taken up acting. He plays the part of a Swiss doctor in "The Theory of Everything" which is nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars. Arts correspondent Colin Paterson spoke to him in Paris about his change of career and found out Leboeuf had yet to see the film. "I didn't see the movie yet...I will have to go and pay my seat...I wasn't invited to any premiere" said Leboeuf adding that he sees this as the start of a new career and would like to play a leading role one day.
