Julie Gayet (French pronunciation: ​[ʒyli ɡajɛ]; born 3 June 1972) is a French film actress and film producer.[4]

Early life and education[edit]

Gayet was born in Suresnes, Hauts-de-Seine, where her father Brice Gayet was a professor of gastric surgery at the Institut Mutualiste Montsouris and her mother was an antique dealer.[5] Her paternal grandfather, Alain Gayet, was also a surgeon and became a Compagnon de la Libération after World War II.[6] She received a social liberal intellectual upbringing.[7][8]

Gayet studied art history and psychology at university, circus skills at the circus school of the Fratellini family, and operatic singing under Tosca Marmor. At the age of 17, she studied at the Actors Studio in London with Jack Waltzer, and then continued at the Tania Balachova School in Paris.[9]

Career[edit]

Acting[edit]

Gayet made her acting debut in a 1992 episode of the French TV series Premiers baisers,[10] and had her first film role as an extra in Three Colors: Blue (1993),[11] but her first role of public note was in the 1996 comedy Delphine 1, Yvan 0 by Dominique Farrugia.[12]

Singing[edit]

Her musical performances include playing in video-clips for Benjamin Biolay and singing a duet with Marc Lavoine.[12]

Film production[edit]

In 2007, she founded her own production company, Rouge International, with Nadia Turincev and produced films such as Fix me by Palestinian Raed Andoni and Bonsai by Cristian Jimenez of Chile.[12][13]

Film directing[edit]

In 2013, Gayet co-directed with Mathieu Busson the documentary Cinéast(e)s featuring 20 French female film directors.[14]

Other[edit]

Gayet appeared on the cover of the 17 January 2014 issue of the French Elle magazine.[15] The "issue exceptionally hit newsstands" on 15 January 2014, two days ahead of its usual release day.[15] The headline reads “Julie Gayet, Actress and Committed Woman, a French Passion.”[15]

Personal life[edit]

In 2003, Gayet married author and screenwriter Santiago Amigorena, but they divorced in 2006.[2][3] The couple have two children.[16]

Gayet is a centre-left activist, having appeared in a video supporting François Hollande during the 2012 French presidential election.[12] She is a member of the Support Committee of the PS candidate for the 2014 Paris mayoral election, Anne Hidalgo.[17] She also supported same-sex marriage in France.

In 2013 rumours started circulating that Gayet was in a secret relationship with President Hollande.[18] On 10 January 2014, a story in the tabloid Closer featured seven pages of alleged revelations and photos about the affair, provoking wider media coverage.[19][20] Hollande said he "regretted this violation of his private life" and was "thinking about" pursuing a legal response, but did not deny the substance of the story.[21][22][23] The 10 January issue was so popular that Closer "reprinted the issue, with a further 150,000 copies scheduled to hit newsstands" on 15 January 2014.[15] On 16 January 2014, the AFP news agency reported that Gayet would sue Closer for €50,000 in damages and €4,000 in legal costs.[24] On 27 March 2014, French court ordered Closer magazine to pay actress Julie Gayet 15,000 euros ($20,700) for publishing photos that revealed an affair between her and President Francois Hollande [25]
