Jeanne Balibar’s Love Life
Complete artist Jeanne Balibar is back in the spotlight with an album, D’ici là tout l’été, co-produced by Arnaud Rebotini and Cléa Vincent, revealing “a sense of tragedy doubled with mischievous fantasy” according to the cover of the work. At 55, she still wants to be as frank and fanciful as her interview with the magazine Voici proves, where she talks about her love relationships in particular. Jeanne Balibar’s love life includes well-known names. The beloved actress of director Arnaud Desplechin was the companion of actor and director Mathieu Amalric from 1996 until their separation in 2003. They had two sons together, Antoine and Pierre – the latter collaborated on her music album Paramour.
Continuing to Work with Exes
The one who embodied the great Barbara then had a relationship with writer Pierre Alféri – who participates in the writing of her music album Paramour – then with musician Philippe Katerine, they even signed the title J’aime tes fesses together. Despite the breakups, the artist has no difficulty continuing to work with the men she has loved. Jeanne Balibar takes the example of her release in 2020, Merveilles à Montfermeil, in which three of her ex-lovers are found: Philippe Katerine, Mathieu Amalric, but also the German director Frank Castorf, with whom she was in a relationship at the time of filming. “They don’t play in the same scenes, but I could have because there is no jealousy. Philippe and Mathieu even shot Le Grand Bain together by Gilles Lellouche. I have remained on good terms with all my exes. I think it was Godard who said: ‘Love doesn’t stop, if it stops, it wasn’t love’, she explains in Voici.
Jeanne’s Men Now
Jeanne’s men write their own love story now: Philippe Katerine, who made Helena Noguerra swoon for a time, is in a relationship with Julie Depardieu and has had two children with her, Billy and Alfred. Mathieu Amalric was in a relationship with the director Stéphanie Cléau and had a child together. Since 2015, the actor has been the companion of the soprano and conductor Barbara Hannigan, passionate about her work which he has analyzed in several documentaries.
