[Mis à jour le 2 février 2022 à 10h32] This Wednesday, February 2, 2022, Fanny Ardant is showing the film “Les Jeunes Amants”. She plays a free and independent septuagenarian who falls in love with a younger married father. During the promotion of this drama with Melvil Poupaud and Cécile de France, the actress confided in her conception of love and her sentimental life. She notably revealed in the columns of Madame Figaro that she herself had been deceived in the past.
Fanny Ardant confided in the pain of infidelity, confident that she had “wanted to die […] It’s as if you were badly burned. But experience is useless. You start over. There is a sentence in One does not trifle with love (Alfred de Musset, editor’s note): ‘I suffered, but I loved. It was I who lived…’ (…) And this phrase from Pasolini that I really like: ‘You have to burn to arrive consumed at the last fire.’
Fanny Ardant has always been very discreet about the men in her life. The 72-year-old actress, however, has had several love stories, first with actor and screenwriter Dominique Levered, with whom she had her eldest daughter, Lumir. Then with the director François Truffaut, for whom she played in The woman next door. Their romance began in 1981 and ended with the birth of a daughter, Joséphine, in 1983. The following year, the filmmaker died of brain cancer. Subsequently, Fanny Ardant was in a relationship with photographer and director Fabio Conversi, who gave her a third daughter, Baladine, in 1989. The actress, however, never married.
