They won’t let go! Arriving on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival with her mother Judith Godrèche on May 15, the young Tess Barthélémy, only 19 years old, has since been the target of particularly odious criticism from certain Internet users. In question ? Her dress, with a back that is too bare, according to them, and which would be contrary to her famous mother’s fight against sexual violence in the cinema.

Criticisms which sometimes go as far as insults and which made others jump: recalling that no outfit is responsible for rape, they drew the parallel between the dress worn by the young woman and that of Mireille Darc in the iconic scene of Tall Blonde with Black Shoe. Surely relieved to see these words, Tess Barthélémy settled for an ambiguous story: the young girl posted a photo of herself in a dress and from behind. A way of showing that she is turning her back on criticism? Without a doubt !

In any case, this made one of his famous relatives particularly proud: his father, the ex-Robin Hood Maurice Barthélémy also reacted on Instagram. “You are right, my daughter. Turn your back on these people“, he wrote, before quoting Alfred de Musset: “The world is a bottomless sewer where the most shapeless seals crawl and writhe on mountains of mire“.

Rare support for the actor, who had remained discreet about his ex-wife’s fight, even after her complaints of rape of a minor against Benoit Jacquot and Jacques Doillon. But this time, he couldn’t resist intervening. No question of attacking his only daughter!

Judith Godrèche had also supported her

Before him, Judith Godrèche had also published a long message to try to stop the criticism of young Tess: “Leave my daughter alone. And all the girls, and all the women, covered or short-clad, cis or trans. Stop judging – encouraging – inciting – promoting this rape culture. This misogyny goes around in circles. One day or another, we will be nothing but stardust. There’s still time to trade grimaces for smiles. Kindness is not a failure“, she wrote.

Triggering numerous supports: “May these stupid, ignorant and disgusting words in no way affect the beautiful people that you are!“, “What world do we live in… Your daughter is sublime. She pays for your fight… Courage girls“, we could read. Others addressed Tess directly: “Support to all these women who are bothered by an outfit, an accessory, a neckline, a detail that bothers!!!!“, “Strength and support, Tess! You are brilliant, intelligent, caring and talented and there are a crowd of us who support and defend you“.

Another “daughter of” criticized

Criticisms reminiscent of those Anna Biolay received last year after her appearance on the Cannes red carpet for the film Rosalie. Supported by her parents, Benjamin Biolay and Chiara Mastroianni, she had also received messages from many famous actors.
