“I would like…”: Isild Le Besco files a complaint for rape against Benoît Jacquot, after Judith Godrèche

Judith Godrèche has been fighting very intensely for several months against violence against women. We remember his poignant speech at the César, his tears at the National Assembly, and more recently his strong gesture, in protest, with his children on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival. And before all this, she had filed a complaint against Benoît Jacquot for “violent rape of a minor under the age of 15”.

Declaring in particular this, on the set of C to you : “This person (Benoît Jacquot) had a relationship with sexuality that was quite twisted. I found myself as his sex toy. Today I am still afraid. Afraid of him, afraid of…A child who has been afraid will be afraid all his life.This Wednesday, May 29, it’s Isild Le Besco, via an interview granted to Libérationwho announces having filed a complaint for rape against Benoît Jacquot in the minor protection brigade of the Paris judicial police.

Maiwenn’s sister explained to our colleagues that she was “terrified” at the idea of ​​starting this process, but that she ultimately wanted to join Judith Godrèche, in order to also bring, by relying on on her own experience, her support for women victims of sexual violence: “With this complaint, it is not so much that I attack Benoît Jacquot, but that I support the women who do it and thus expose themselves publicly. Morally I feel obliged to do it, even if alone, I would not have done it“It is therefore a “moral necessity”, she believes: “I know I have to do it.” Before continuing: “I use my simple little case to show that Benoît Jacquot acted with me as with other young girls. I wish all men who act like predators would fall.

As a reminder, Yann Barthès recently received it in Dailythen questioning him about a passage from his autobiography Say true, published by Denoël, in which already denounces certain behaviors of the director. We then learn that he asked her to shoot a nude scene, before giving her his credit card, while telling her that she could buy whatever she wanted with it. But he then filed a complaint against her, insinuating that she stole his credit card: ” He suggests I say it was a joke. It’s amazing, yes, but it’s just a reflection of this world and what all women experience.“.

She also specified that Benoît Jacquot is “a rich man” and “of power” who did not hesitate to use a teenage girl “to do his thing”. “Obviously it’s terrible. What I just want to say is that there are a lot of people who are like that, and we have the chance to be able to name it, say it and give this word..” She also added this: “I have had other stories where I was not a minor, where I had not learned to set limits, so obviously I am an area of ​​abuse.”

Benoit Jacquot is presumed innocent of the facts with which he is accused until the final closure of the case.
