On December 14, Cecile of France returns to the big screen. At 47, the actress is still one of the stars of the 7th art. It must be said that comedy has that in its blood. Since she took her first steps in the industry, only two years (2014 and 2020, due to Covid-19) have not had the honor of seeing the actress play. The latter made up for lost time on the others. In 2019, it is not less than 3 films that she shot. Same thing two years later. 2022 will obviously be his year too. She was, in any case, asked by Héloïse Pelloquet for the film The Passenger, in theaters on December 14. In this dramatic romance, Cécile de France lends her features to Chiara, a happily married woman whom the meeting with Maxence, a much younger man, will disturb.
In real life, Cécile de France is a discreet lover, far from the classic patterns known in show business. Married to Guillaume Siron, the father of her two children, since 2006, the actress remains evasive and mysterious about her daily life as a companion and mother. However, there is no question of hiding anything from the public concerning her career and her self-esteem.
I’m out of the norm
To illustrate a physical attraction to a younger man, Cécile de France had to strip herself, literally. Where some actresses refuse to show themselves in the simplest way for the needs of a film, Cécile de France doesn’t care. As she approaches her fifties, the Belgian is proud of her body, feels no embarrassment when it comes to showing it off and she is absolutely right: “I found it important to show my body as a 47-year-old woman as it is, she says in an interview with Female version. It’s crazy to put it this way: I’m still young. But I’m no longer in the beauty standards.”
Cécile de France has not decided to hide, however, quite the contrary. Shooting nude scenes with Félix Lefebvre, his 23-year-old partner, was no problem: “It was very easy and very happy! Félix and I have the same relationship with the body: we consider it an extraordinary working tool. […] We put ourselves at the service of the story of our characters, and since Héloïse had choreographed the scenes very well, everything was fluid.” The talent also has a lot to do with it, no doubt.
