NEW YORK (AP) _ French actress Julie Delpy is a loner rebelling against what she calls ``a couple's world.''

``Too many women throw themselves into romance because they're afraid of being single, then start making compromises and losing their identity,'' Delpy says in the Sunday New York Post. ``I won't do that.''

The definitely single blond beauty began her film career at age 14, working with famed French director Jean-Luc Godard in ``Detective.'' Subsequent credits include ``Killing Zoe,'' ``Europa, Europa,'' ``Voyager'' and ``Before Sunrise.''

She can be seen now in the horror movie ``An American Werewolf in Paris,'' a new genre for the actress more used to art movies and love stories.

``I also refuse to be put in a corner,'' Delpy said. ``I'd never done a scary movie and decided to give it a try.''
