Question about France

Why does France (Paris more specifically) have such a bad reputation with tourists? Really, all I hear is that you don't like when people talk to you in English (and it's kind of crazy considering is the language most people use when they travel abroad) and when they try their best to speak French you don't answer unless the pronunciation is really good? I don't know if this is true but if it is I don't think it's fair for the people who try to learn the language and your culture. I hope it isn't like that, and just that like every other country you have nice and rude people. I've also heard that it's not like this outside the capital...
