This Sunday, October 10, Dany Boon was the subject of the famous portrait of the week in the magazine “7 à 8”. The 55-year-old comedian, successful in the comedy “Bienvenue chez les ch’tis”, will be showing his next feature film on Netflix. Called “8 rue de l’Humanité”, the film relates the daily life of neighbors of a Parisian building who will discover themselves in the middle of a period of confinement.
During the interview with Audrey Crespo-Mara, the artist confided with humor about his exacerbated hypochondria when the Covid-19 epidemic was in full swing. “As the temperature factor was very important, I took everyone’s temperature. I had a gun, a thermometer… I had to change the battery every three days. I do it in the movie but it’s in relation to what I’ve done in life. I was taking everyone’s temperature all the time. After a while it annoyed my relatives, so I removed the little beep… I managed to find it in the menu. Suddenly, I took at night, when people were sleeping. It’s also true, it’s horrible. I am ashamed !”, he related.
Dany Boon also spoke of his relationship with his mother for which all was not rosy. A situation that prompted him to develop a fatal weapon against gloom: laughter. “Laughter was a remedy for everything (…) it’s attractive to make people laugh. As I had a particular physique. It was also my mother who told me: ‘You are beautiful. You are so beautiful, but then your ears … You are beautiful in three-quarters or in profile. I missed something, your ears’ “, he recalled not without humor.
