Little known to Americans before winning the Oscar for best actor for his role in The Artist, Jean Dujardin is one of the French stars who have made a name for themselves on the international scene, like Marion Cotillard or Omar Sy. If this could see the light of day, it is above all thanks to the multiple awards received for his remarkable performance in the film by Michel Hazanavicius. Golden Globes, BAFTA, Oscar… these are the prestigious awards that the husband of Nathalie Péchalat has in his possession.

In an interview with Europe 1, the cult actor of A guy, a girl had spoken of his victory. “We put the Oscar down and we don’t watch it anymore. There are two solutions: either we live with the Oscar and it becomes unbearable and you become an asshole; or you tell yourself that it’s great but that it remains punctual”, he explained in February 2013 and added: “I wanted to return to my job. I miss shooting in France. Having a real project… I will have one in September, that seems very far to me. “.

How did his partner at the time Alexandra Lamy experience his success across the Atlantic? The actress confided in the subject during an interview with Le Figaro. “When he got his Oscar, it was extraordinary. The situation was out of the ordinary. It was mandatory that no one talk to me about my projects and only about him. I accepted it, I never complained . I was very happy for him,” she said in 2017 before qualifying her remarks: “I was just hurt by a TV show that really broke me because I had filmed my husband at the Golden Globes with my mobile phone (…) Two people in a relationship doing the same job, it works but when one takes off, it becomes complicated. I felt “stuck” for a long time. It took a long time to get out of it “.
