The beautiful story lasted 17 years. Between 1991 and 2008, Cristiana Reali And Francis Huster had a romance and became the parents of two daughters, Élisa and Toscane Rose. Four years after their separation, the actress spoke in the columns of Gala about the end of this relationship. “I wasn’t feeling well anymore, I wasn’t very happy anymore, I wasn’t making Francis very happy either. One of them had to shake the other a little, we did it and that was it. Afterwards, it’s certain, there is always one who suffers more than the other“, she slipped.
For his part, Francis Huster did not hesitate to express certain regrets regarding his breakup with Cristiana Reali. “I missed out on sacrifices of love. Cristiana and I should never have separated. It’s my fault. Totally. It’s because I’m completely crazy. I am unbearable. I’ve had women in my life who always kicked me out. Maybe that’s why I wish my daughters success in life. Perhaps the most beautiful thing is love“, he declared during the France 2 news. Invited on Europe 1 on February 10, 2024, Cristiana Reali returned to this beautiful love story lived alongside Francis Huster. Despite their mutual feelings, the start of their relationship “was not easy. Before being in a relationship with the actor, Cristiana Reali had been his student at Cours Florent. Their romance, however, only began at the end of the actress’s training.”It wasn’t easy because there was probably a problem with being Francis’ girlfriend, that’s for sure. He was my teacher, plus he was very popular at the time. He was the bachelor that no one could get. And then, what’s more, he was starting a troupe, so we played together a lot. It was not very well seen, I think, by the students, by the young actors and actresses. She’s still a student who was with a teacher, really! Even if we were no longer in class“, she confided.
This love story also had consequences on the actress’s early career. “I realized very very quickly that people didn’t see me as an actress as long as I was playing with him. It was like I wasn’t legitimate. I didn’t see the problem, but apparently, it stopped people from approaching me. And I had to be named to Molières once, with him, for people to relax a little. And they started offering me Tennessee Williams and stuff. Whereas he had a troupe at that time where there were five-six actors with whom he worked systematically and that posed no problem“, she added.
