Juliette Binoche

Juliette Binoche also they called her La Binoche, is a popular French actress, artist and dancer who were born in Paris on March 9, 1964. She’s the daughter of Jean-Marie Binoche, a director, actor, and sculptor, and Monique Stalens, a teacher, director, and actress. Binoche has French, Flemish, Brazilian, and Moroccan ancestry. She grew up living in a Catholic boarding school with her sister Marion, when she was four when their parents got divorced. During their teens, the Binoche sisters spent their school holidays with their maternal grandmother, not seeing either parent for months at a time.

She had attended the National Conservatory of Dramatic Art of Paris. She was not in particular in academic and in her teenage years she began acting at school in amateur stage productions. She began her career as a teenager, appearing in productions of Molière, Ionesco and Pirandello. At 17, she directed and appeared in a student production of the Eugène Ionesco play, Exit the King. She studied acting at the Conservatoire National Supérieur d’Art Dramatique (CNSAD), but quit after a short time.

Binoche had a daughter, Hannah Magimel, born on December 16, 1999 with French actor Benoît Magimel and a son, Raphael Halle, born on September 2, 1993 with Andre Halle.


She debuted on the big screen with a one-line role in the 1983 feature “Liberty Belle.” Her role required just two days on set, but was enough to inspire Binoche to pursue a career in film. Her first professional screen experience was as an extra in the three part TF1 television series Dorothée, danseuse de corde (1983), which was followed by a similarly small role in the provincial television film Fort bloque.

Besides the Oscar she won Prix Romy Schneider, European Film Award, Berlin International Film Festival Award, Cesar Award, British Academy Award or European Film Award.

In 1995 she was on Empire magazine’s 100 Sexiest Stars in film history list and two years later on People magazine’s “the 50 Most Beautiful People in the World”.
