The actress without Miu-Miu complexes owes her a funny and memorable stage name to Kolusha. The famous comedian jokingly called his stage colleague “miou-miou”, hinting that she plays with ease and grace, “A la miou-miou”. The nickname quickly caught on, and under it Miu-Miu became a movie star.
No one in the Sylvet Erri family had anything to do with the art world: my mother worked as a saleswoman, her father served in the police. However, the daughter chose a creative profession.
The path to glory
The biography of the future star began in 1950. The child was born in Paris on February 22. The girl did not differ in the desire to become an actress in childhood and adolescence. She studied with plans to become a carpet weaver and upholsterer in the future. Then there was a job as a saleswoman at a fair.
The director drew attention to the attractive girl. He invited the gregarious Sylvet to visit his Café de la Gare, an experimental open-air theater. Her professional career began with the role of a stage worker: the future celebrity repaired furniture, and helped dressers with props, and soap floors. Then Erri was accepted into the troupe.
She played on the same stage with the future masters of French cinema. The film debut of Sylvet herself took place in 1971. The girl got a small role. In the movie "Escape" she got the heroine Petit Equareil. Then there was an episode in the short film The Sentimental Life of Georges Le Thuer.
The actress got frivolous blondes over and over again. It is not surprising that the image has grown so tightly with her that she was able to get rid of the template and get a serious role for Miu-Miu only a decade later.
A notable success was the work in the painting by Bernard Blier "Waltzing". After the premiere in 1974, the film turned into a cult film, and Miu-Miu herself with film partners Depardieu and Devaeer became a real star. With Isabelle Huper Sylvet created one of the most interesting on-screen female film duets of the 70s and 80s.
The type of "friendly" girl became more and more in demand, as the directors focused on modern youth. The role in the "Triumphal March" in 1976 was also interesting. At the same time, the film "F as Fairbanks" was released, which reflects the history of the relationship between Miu-Miu and her husband Patrick Devaer. The film earned its first Cesar nomination in 1977.
Interesting was the work in the film history "Chtitsa". The heroine of Miu-Miu is the “intellectual on call”. She reads books to those in need of such a service.
Beyond the screen
The star has been nominated for the Cesar award 9 times. However, she refused to receive her for her role in the film "Trick", explaining that there are no good and bad roles for her. They all require the same return.
In 2004, Miu-Miu starred in the miniseries Ambre a disparu. And in 2013 she played in the film "Arrêtez-moi". Although much less often, the actress continues to act in films.
Her personal life is similar to one of 90 movies of a celebrity. The first choice of the actress was her colleague Patrick Dewaer. In 1974 they had a child, daughter Angel. The couple broke up.
The singer Julien Claire became the new companion in the life of the star. Their daughter Jeanne Erri, born in 1978, continued her mother's work with an artistic career.
Miu-Miu is currently in a relationship with actor, screenwriter and writer Jean Telelet.
