They form one of the leading couples of French cinema. Louis Garrel and Laetitia Casta would have started their romance in 2015 after an unexpected meeting “during a Parisian evening”, according to the French tabloid Public. While the actor separated from actress Golshifteh Farahani, the French actress and model had divorced her ex-husband, actor Stefano Accorsi.
However, nothing predestined the famous model in her forties to reconnect with love, even less with marriage. “They don’t marry me like that. I’m romantic. Getting married means growing old together. Right now, it’s not on the agenda,” she confided to Paris Match. “I ended up overcoming my fear, my preconceptions. It’s a question of insurance. I took a lot of insurance. And then, you know what, only fools don’t change no opinion”.
In 2017, Louis Garrel and Laetitia Casta married in Corsica at Lumio during an intimate ceremony in front of their family and friends. From their union, the two actors now form a blended family: the model had three children, Sahteene (born from her relationship with Stéphane Sednaoui in 2001), Orlando and Athéna (born in 2006 and 2009 from her story with Stefano Accorsi) . While the actor and director adopted his daughter Oumy in 2009 with Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi. A large chip shop that they will expand with the birth of their son Azel in March 2021.
Accomplices in the city as on the screen, Laetitia Casta has shared the poster several times with her husband in the cinema and under his direction. First in 2018 in The faithful man where they form a couple of three with the star Lily-Rose Depp, then the following year in The Crusade. It is in particular for the promotion of the film that the couple distinguished themselves with elegance on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival in July 2021.
While his wife does not hesitate to pour out on their couple in the media, Louis Garrel is more discreet on the subject. Only exception: during their passage in Daily in December 2021, the actor described his wife, like a definition taken from a dictionary. “Laetitia Casta, actress and powerful woman, multi-talented woman”, he began before praising his qualities in front of her and the host Yann Barthès. “Her deep generosity and her empathy nourish the characters she plays. It gives them a human strength that all actors hope to find in their work”. A touching testimony that illustrates their seven years of love.
