But what was going through his mind that day? Used to posing in front of photographers with his wife Bérénice Bejo, met through the filming ofOSS 117 in 2006, Michel Hazanavicius rather surprised, a year and a half ago, on the red carpet at the Rome Film Festival. Arrived to present his new film, Cut!in which his wife and Romain Duris play, he made a strange gesture: in the middle of the red carpet, he had lifted the long skirt What did his wife wear?

Don’t panic, he hadn’t chosen to strip her naked or reveal his wife’s goddess body by surprise. No ! Michel Hazanavicius had especially need cloth to clean your glasses ! In any case, that’s what he did right after, making Bérénice Bejo laugh a lot. This one, accommodating with her husband, had even held her skirt to make it easier for him!

A small incident which did not prevent them from posing together before attending the screening of their film. It must be said that they have known each other for so long that there was no question for the forty-year-old of dwelling on this gesture: director ofOSS 117: Cairo, nest of spiesMichel Hazanavicius had cast the young woman for the role of Larmina El Akmar Betouche, alongside Jean Dujardin.

A rather well done casting… since the two never left each other! A couple from the end of filming, they have since built a family by entering into a civil partnership and becoming the parents of two children, Lucien, in 2008 and Gloria, in 2011 (the director was already the father of Fantine and Simone, already adults, born from a previous love story).

An actress in her own right

Their family does not prevent them from forming a real cinema duo as soon as they find themselves on a set: “There is a somewhat reductive side to saying: ‘She works with her husband’ or ‘He works with his wife’. We are also at the moment where we are making a film, a director and she, an actress. And we’re not just lovers or a couple“, he explained to Paris Match, arguing, however, that he “knows sides” of his wife that others don’t necessarily see. And this balance suits them well: since OSS 117they collaborated five times together, notably in The Artistwhich earned the actress a César.

And if she’s not in his new movie, The most valuable commoditywhich will be screened this Friday evening in Cannes, there is no doubt that she is fully behind it!
