Married for over 40 years, he talks about the ‘suffering’ of knowing what love is

Thierry Lhermitte has been happily married for many years. Together with his buddy, he knew how to sustain the flame, why they still love each other like the first day.

Thierry Lhermitte has been making perfect love with his wife, Hélène, for more than four decades. But if the couple swam with happiness for years, Thierry confided that it was not done without concessions.


Thierry Lhermitte is one of the most important personalities in France. And rightly so, for in addition to being a successful actor, he is also known as a medical columnist.

It is especially in Ali Rebeihi’s program “Great good for you”, in France Inter’s waves, that Hélène’s husband talks about medicine, a topic that fascinates him a lot.

“The complexity of life surprises me”,

he mentioned in the columns of the Parisian.

It should be noted, however, that Thierry Lhermitte first became interested in medicine and science when he grew up, because in his youth he was more like “a teenager who slips on everything”.

However, this passion has nothing to do with his medical problem. A topic that has also sparked rumors, and which the actor had to explain himself during an interview.

In fact, some time ago, after a joke on the radio, many people thought Victor’s father had prosopagnosia or facial memory loss.

But in the words of the medical columnist, if he does not always recognize people on the street, it is not at all because of this disease.

“Apart from the fact that I’m not prosopagnostic, I’m simply not a physiologist, it can be very embarrassing, but we are far from the disease,”

he claimed.

Although Thierry Lhermitte then declares that he does not have prosopagnosia, he nevertheless acknowledges that his vision problem sometimes hurts those close to him.

“When I present myself for the third time to someone who’s already told me ten minutes before, ‘I’ve seen you before,’ it’s awful,”

he said in an interview.

Note that the actor in the movie “Le Dîner de cons” does not have a vision problem, but he simply has trouble recognizing or distinguishing faces. Fortunately, in this difficult ordeal, he can always count on his wife’s unconditional support.

Thierry Lhermitte met his wife Hélène more than forty years ago. At this point, the actor has not yet achieved success. However, that did not stop them from being together.

Moreover, as they had become inseparable, the two dwarf parrots quickly developed a desire to start a family. Therefore, they did not wait long to welcome their three children, including Astrée, Victor and Louise.

At the same time, the father of the family managed to make a career in the world of cinema and became famous. But despite its notoriety, it has not changed their lives as a couple.

Instead, the two lovers held together in thick and thin. While Thierry Lhermitte’s love remained the same.

“I was and remain one woman’s husband: min. I’m still in love with her, and my family has been the source of my stability in this profession where there are so few.”

he said in the Paris Match. That is well said.

Today, Gérard Jugnot’s companion is happier than ever in his beloved’s arms. Thanks to the latter, we can thus say that he is currently in charge of a beautiful and happy family and he is also becoming a sweet grandfather to his grandchildren.


Of course, like most couples, Thierry and Hélène Lhermitte have experienced difficult times during their marriage.

In addition, in an interview with Femme Actuemme magazine, the actor admitted that his family has “lots of problems”. Something he does find “super normal” though.

However, it seems that the star “Des Bronzés” in love has a certain fear. And apparently it causes him a lot of pain, according to his statement.

“Like everyone else, I made this discovery in pain. I have lived with my wife for forty years. It requires a lot of kindness and respect, knowing that it can stop at any time”,

he revealed to the magazine.

Married for many years, however, it must be said that the two dwarf parrots have managed to preserve their lives as a couple. Note that in order to retain this love, they are not required to tell each other everything.

“(…) Shall we tell each other everything? I’m not talking about cheating, but should we say ‘I can not hate you today’, or ‘you piss me off’? Everyone does what they want (…) “,

confirmed the native of Boulogne-Billancourt.

Getting a relationship to last is not an easy thing, it requires a lot of effort and perseverance. Nevertheless, Thierry Lhermitte, who often embodies a seductive role in the cinema, has been able to maintain her relationship with Hélène despite the difficult times they have been through.

For more than four decades, the actor has navigated the ups and downs of life with a woman, the mother of his three children. A long life that many people would definitely dream of knowing about the secret.

Guest on the show 50 ‘Inside on Saturday 14 May, he who plays the role of Pierre Brochant in “Le Dîner de cons”, was not stingy with words about the secret ingredients in their love.

Curious as everyone else, Nikos Aliagas did not forget to ask him about the secret behind the durability of his relationship with Hélène. A question that Astrée’s father did not hesitate to answer.

“There is no secret. Me, it seems to me that it is to know that love is not unconditional”,

he began before explaining his theory of love:

“When you are little, you only know the love of your parents. As a rule, it is called unconditional love. Well, and then we learn in our first love stories that love is not unconditional, that love is very conditional. So it’s negotiable and it’s temporary. ”

For Thierry Lhermitte, love is thus a feeling that does not last long and that it can stop overnight. Moreover, the couple does not celebrate their wedding day for fear that it will disrupt their relationship.

“We are afraid it will bring us misfortune. This may be the secret behind the life of a relationship: believing it can stop tomorrow “,

he revealed a few years ago at the Gala and stressed once again that for a relationship to work, one must be aware that nothing lasts forever!
