The actress Isabelle Huppert, who celebrates her 70th birthday on March 16, 2023, has shared her life for more than 40 years with director Ronald Chammah. The two artists had met in 1980 on the set of the film La Dame aux Camélias and they have never left each other since.
About their relationship, filmmaker Catherine Breillat told Vanity Fair in 2019: “She marabouted her man. Thanks to him, she doesn’t sacrifice anything, neither her family nor her art, the only things that really matter to her. Thanks to him, above all, she never sank into madness like other actresses.”
From their union came three children into the world: Lorenzo Chammah, Angelo Chammah and Lolita Chammah who followed in her mother’s footsteps by becoming an actress. Isabelle Huppert is also still as close to her children, as she said in an interview with Gala in 2017.
“The youngest (Angelo Editor’s note) is certainly an adult, but I do not yet consider him completely as an adult – I may be wrong by the way. I have a look of wonder at them, as I have since the beginning”, she explained and continued: “Children are the adventure of a lifetime (…) My real satisfaction, my real goal, is to know that they are and will be happy no matter what they do. I would have been the same if they had chosen a very different voice.”
It must be said that his daughter Lolita is also a leading actress of French cinema. She played in about thirty films including Copacabana in which she plays the role of her famous mother as well as later in the film Barrage by Laura Schroeder.
