A mother of three, she has not had cosmetic surgery and is not afraid of getting old

Fanny Ardant is an amazing woman. Despite her professional success, the actress has never had cosmetic surgery and accepts herself as she is.

Today, Fanny Ardant is 73 years old. However, the movie star is still just as sublime and elegant. It seems that the passage of time has not caught on with this great cinema character, who is obviously not afraid of getting older.


Fanny Ardant is without a doubt one of the greatest actresses of her generation. And rightly so, because over the course of her career, she has won several Césars thanks to the many successful films she has starred in. However, she did not always play comedy.

Born on March 22, 1949 in Saumur, Maine-et-Loire, when she was young, Fanny Ardant really studied politics in Aix-en-Provence, specializing in “International Relations”.

But before her university studies, the actress first spent her childhood in the Principality of Monaco with her father, former governor of the prince’s palace, and her mother.

At the time, the actress was happy with her parents, who formed a very loving couple. But then, after she lost them, her world collapsed.

“I adored them, but they died young. They were mowed down in the air, we did not have time to tell each other to fight. It is as if one last act was missing, as in a love story,

she told Paris Match one day.

However, the actress has always kept her head high throughout her life. She also took refuge in reading … and not in any reading.

“I read while taking drugs (…) I do not read the newspapers, but I love the news because they have the truth of the novels (…) What interests me is the ambiguous side of the truth”,

she confided, still in the magazine.

Meanwhile, she has also excelled in the world of cinema and also found taste for life by starting her own family.


Beautiful, talented and charismatic, Fanny Ardant once turned many heads, no doubt this is still the case, but only three men were able to win her heart. One of them was especially François Truffaut.

For the record, the movie star especially met the filmmaker and the man of her life in 1981 on the set of the movie “La Femme d’à Côté”.

Their love story was a real fairy tale, so much so that two years later they already became parents to daughter Joséphine, who is Fanny Ardant’s second daughter after Lumir.

Unfortunately, their idyll came to a tragic end in 1984. And with good reason, the famous filmmaker went from life to death that year. Despite this difficult ordeal, the actress still remained strong.

Especially since she is still surrounded by her three daughters, including Baladine, born of her relationship with Fabio Conversi, the one who shared her life after François Truffaut.

In 2011, during an interview given to Paris Match, the actress with multiple cesarean sections confided that her daughters had literally saved her life, after Josephine’s father’s death.

“Very young, the thought of death followed me (…) I did not wait to know it to know that it came very quickly, I always had the feeling of the fleeting. C” It is as if I took long time to dive in and when it succeeded, emptied the pool. I broke, “

she confided before adding:

“Children have been my lifeline. I raised my three daughters alone, it made me want to live, even though I always remained a woman. Being a mother prevented me from sinking. Saved me, and it allowed me to come, where I am, regardless of trials, sorrows, failures. “

Today, the actress’ three daughters are all adults and no doubt manage to take care of them as adults. But no matter what, their mother is very proud of them. Especially since thanks to these she has become a fulfilled grandmother.

“I’m not afraid of aging”

Fanny Ardant celebrated her 73rd birthday on March 22, 2022. But when you look at her picture, it seems that the actress does not appear to be her age at all.

And yet she is not at all the type of woman who follows the trends of the time to keep her body perfect. Moreover, the movie star is not afraid of getting older, which she confided during an interview when asked about the subject.

“To be afraid one has to lose. But I have nothing to lose. To be afraid is associated with the desire to please (…) Not being loved anymore is not so serious, but if we know to remain yourself love you, it is won ”.

she confided after declaring that she “smokes”, drinks and “eats meat”.

In terms of cosmetic surgery, it is out of the question for Fanny Ardant. In fact, this practice has never convinced her. She also confided in this topic in her interview.

“At my age, the game is over. Too bad! Since I was 15, I have always put on make-up, I have made myself because I have experienced myself as an ugly young girl. And then what I saw (cosmetic surgery ) did not convince me “,

she said before adding:

“(…) I think there are two things that are shameful in life: complaining about getting old, and complaining about paying too much tax (…).”

And yes, the one who is always sublime and elegant at every performance, assumes his age perfectly and accepts his old age. On the other hand, she has always had a complex with her body as she does not like it for personal reasons. That’s why the actress has never shot naked in her films.
