Emmanuelle Beart Introduction
Emmanuelle Béart is best known to American viewers as the female lead in 1996’s Mission: Impossible. In France, she’s a popular and celebrated actress, having won the César award (the French equivalent of the Academy Award) for the film, Manon des Sources, and having been nominated on six other occasions. She also dedicates time to UNICEF, working as an ambassador. She graced the cover of the French version of Elle magazine nude, in 2003 at the age of 40, and it was the magazine’s biggest selling issue ever.
Emmanuelle Beart Life Story
Emmanuelle Béart was born in St. Tropez, France, and grew up on the mean streets of the French Riviera. Her father, Guy Béart, is a Lebanese-Egyptian singer songwriter, and her mother is actress Geneviève Galéa, of Italian-Greek heritage. Surprise, surprise, the daughter of this pairing decided to pursue a career in the arts.
In her teens, Emmanuelle moved to Montreal, Canada, and booked several parts on Canadian television. It was here that she met American director, Robert Altman, who encouraged her to pursue a career in acting. Emmanuelle returned to her native France, and won the 1987 César award for her role in Manon des Sources.
Emmanuelle is well known to internet surfers for appearing fully nude in several films, including nearly the entire length of the film La Belle Noiseuse. She continues to act, pose nude, is the new model for H&M lingerie, and, on the occasions when she’s fully clothed, donates time to UNICEF. She has traveled to Vietnam several times in her roll as a UNICEF ambassador, and was forcibly removed from a Parisian church during a protest against anti-immigration policies and attitudes in 1996. Emmanuelle had a ten-year relationship with actor Daniel Auteuil, which produced one daughter. She also has a son with current boyfriend, David Moreau, the half-brother of French actor Patrick Bruel.
