Jean-Paul Belmondo was born April 9th, 1933 in the linear-sur-Seine, a suburb of Paris. In the house of his father, a renowned sculptor, Professor of Fine Arts, Paul Belmondo, there were major artists, writers and artists. Throughout the war and the occupation of Madame Belmondo lived with the children in his Klermontan. Her husband spent those years in Paris, working in his workshop. After the war, the family reunited.

In Paris, Jean-Paul attends school on Henry Street Barbyusa. He was then transferred to Alsatian school, where soon excluded for bad behavior. With fifteen years, he is studying in a prestigious college Paskalevskom. But it demonstrates the nature of combat. Once in the fight to him perebyut nose. However, pet-Bebel (the so-called friends of his), not only fought, but seriously engaged in soccer and boxing.

Passing examinations for the bachelor, Belmondo in October of 1951 become volnoslushatelem Conservatory of Dramatic Art. It may take years and, as it will take its course a wonderful actor and teacher Pierre Dyuks, razglyadevshy it deposits comedians.

The period of "Comedy Frances, Belmondo klodelevskoy played in the drama" The announcement, made by Marie, Voltairian "Candido" in the operetta Francis Lopez "Andalusia" and molerovskih "Miserly" and "George Dandene.

In 1956, Belmondo produces diploma performance of "Love and piano" on the play Feydo and receives a positive evaluation. Begin exhausting tour of the province with various companies. "The premises are not heated, and we have to get warm, played on the stage of passion ..." - recalls the actor.

Belmondo debuted in the film. Esnera film "Saturday ... We′ll steal "(1956) with his participation went unnoticed. He then appears in the pictures, "Be nice and keep mum," "Odd Saturday" Mark Alegre and "deceivers" Marcel CarnГ© (1957). The "trickster" Jean-Paul played pilferer Lu, and extras were employed his future wife, ballerina RenГ© Constant. Years later, she recognized that Belmondo conquered its inexplicable charm, which fly as a female moth. It was then that Jean-Paul invented the beloved new name - Elodiya.

After a psychological family drama "The double turn-key" Claude Shabrolya Belmondo was in the main role in the first full-length film, Jean-Luc Godard "The last breath." His hero, Michel Puakar, steals car, kills a policeman and then, having arrived in Paris, trying to persuade the girlfriend-American to run with him, but that it gives police. Michelle could escape, but preferred to die from police bullets. Godard every day something invent. Jean-Paul and his partner Jean Seeberg constantly improvise. As a result, the film became the sensation of world cinema.

"All my life after the movie" The last breath "resembled a fairy tale - remembers Belmondo.

- Phone call from morning till night. It seemed to me that it did not last long, and therefore gave consent to participate in any picture. In short, life resembled to sleep. Especially, when I suddenly found itself in the arms of Sophia Loren, Gina Lollobrigida and Claudia Cardinale. It was 60-years "sweet life". In institutions in the Via Veneto in Rome one could see the most beautiful women in the world. Madness lasted all night. I stayed there six months and made four films in succession. "

When Belmondo only appeared on the screen, its called the new Tarzanom, as well as Harold Lloyd and Douglas Fairbanks. Remember the names of Humphrey Bogart and Marlon Brando. "The best young actor in Europe," referred to his English theatrical director Peter Brook.

Belmondo offered the role of gangsters, but he wants to try themselves in other roles. Jean Paul creates images of a factory employee in "Moderato cantabile" (1960) Brooke, intellectual in Chochare "(1960) De Sica, a priest in" Leone Moreno, the priest "(1961) and the dregs in Fersho-senior" (1962) Melvilya.

Belmondo is continuing to work with Jean-Luc Godard. And if the comedy "The woman - a woman" (1961) did not leave him vivid memories, the "madman Pierrot" (1965) based on the novel White became an event. On the set again spirit of improvisation. Jean-Paul with a large force of the drama played to deceive people, vainly trying to find a place in a world dominated by deception, meanness, terror.

In 1962, the screen goes comedy "Monkey in Winter", where the partner was MaГ®tre Belmondo French cinema, Jean Gaben. Despite the difference in age, they became friends. Gaben aptly remarked: "This guy ugly, but it is something that was in me and that love women."

Of course, most of the audience, Jean-Paul Belmondo remembered above all for the many detective thriller, kostyumnym and adventure strips. One of the first works in this series was the film "On behalf of La Rocca" (1961), shot on a novel by Giovanni "separated". The great success enjoyed "cartouche" (1961), "Man from Rio" (1963), "100 thousand dollars in the sun" (1963), "Chinese trial in China" (1965).

"The misfortune Chinese in China" was filmed in Lebanon, Hong Kong, Tibet, China. Of course, it was fun to play the Chinese, be a Frenchman, but worked Belmondo with pleasure. Especially in the company′s beauty Ursula Andress, then the wife of American actor and director John Derek. Their relationship quickly ceased to be a partner. Jean-Paul did not hide his affair from his wife Elodi, the mother of his children - Patricia, Florence and Paul.

Ursula takes away his in Hollywood. There, he met with Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Kirk Douglas. Belmondo terribly jealous lover. "Living with Jean-Paul is located in the center of the cyclone," - said the actress. 5 Jan, 1968, he divorced Elodi ...

Belmondo, following the Board Gabena continues to alternate serious cinema with entertainment. Francois Tryuffo invited him to play along with Catherine Deneuve in the film "Siren of" Mississippi "(1969). Despite the fact that the picture of a famous director has received a cool reception, Belmondo has once again proved that is able to play a great feeling.

It was a masterpiece and the film Claude Lelusha "A man who likes me" (1969), where Jean-Paul and his sokursnitsa at the Conservatory Annie Girardot played simple love story.

At the same time, enjoyed great success story underworld Dere "Borsalino" (1969), where Belmondo and Delon was stunning duet. As usual, relaxed, Jean-Paul opposed mrachnovatomu and Alain closed. Jacques talked about Dere Belmondo: "No, he is the managing director is not required. Its quite a bit to orient so that it is not excluded from the style and atmosphere of the film ... "

The painting Shabrolya "Popol Doctor" (1972) Belmondo first time not only as an actor, but co-Zhenovesa. His film company, registered under the name "Serito movie", in memory of my grandmother, however, after some time renamed "Anabellu.

In 1973, Belmondo film being produced by Alain Rene "Stavisky" and was himself in the title role. The public rebelled, why the gambler in his performance that′s charming? Actor objected. Yes unless it is neobayatelny fraudster? If he is unsympathetic, it is no cheat! "

In "Fear over the City" (1974) Belmondo played fearless Commissioner flew capable hands wonders for just cause. The film is full of dangerous scenes. Jean-Paul ran on the roof of a train running underground, was hanging on a cable attached to the helicopter. Directed by Henry VERNEUIL admired them: "I do not know anybody, except him who would move from the normal situation to kaskaderskim tricks, and after them just to continue what they need when filming love scenes ... He always bezukoriznen ... But do not hurt when, for example, directed little bit curb his temper ... "

We know that Jean-Paul Belmondo until his sixtieth worked without alternates. Snyavshis in eighty films, performing more than one hundred and fifty dangerous stunts, often designed by himself, he only once broke his arm and several ribs. "The risk that I have been for forty years, helped me to argue a man. Take the opportunity to proudly look at the beautiful eyes of women who loved me ... "- Bebel states.

Incidentally, the beautiful women. In 1972, he had to part with Ursula Andress. Jean-Paul always said that marriage between actors are rarely long-lasting ... Belmondo passion for Italian actress Laura Antonelli, endowed by nature a divine appearance. Love affair with Laura, too, not over the marriage.

In 1970, a huge success enjoyed by comedy involving Belmondo: "Magnificent" (1973), "Incorrigible" (1975) and "monster" (1977). The "monster", he played a bold, artful, longing for adventure stuntman. Jean-Paul, as always, clearly fulfilled all the tricks, and only a tiger at the end of filming ishitrilsya bite actor. With torn ear Belmondo was taken to hospital ...

Critics noted his excessive passion for commercial cinema. In response, Jean-Paul said that work on millions of viewers, rather than a dozen reviewers: "My vocation is to entertain people: make them cry and laugh. Show me an actor who appeared only in masterpieces. If you accept a prominent role, the play for the life of two to three times ... Actor shall be removed, otherwise it will disappear from the screen ... "

Directed Lotner shoots him in three films in succession: "The police or the killer?" ( "Who is who?", 1979), "Shut pea" ( "Playing four hands", 1980) and "Professional" (1981).

And for them - the movie "Ace of asov" (1982) Uri, settled in the genre of anti-comedy. On the day of the premiere of "Ace of asov" gathered 72 thousand spectators! It was a record!

In 1982, the President of France awarded him the Order of the Legion of Honor. Next to the senior Belmondo was younger - Paul, his son semnadtsatiletny.

Having achieved success in film, Belmondo venture back to the stage. And so after 28 years! Robert Osseyn offered him a major role in the drama of Dumas′s father "Kean, a genius or besputstvo" (1987). Belmondo himself gave way disclosure Keene. He truly played the genius of a madness. "Blessed piece! - Said the actor. - Favored! Before me was the audience who do not normally go to the theater. I threw him a challenge. To do so, had to overcome fear and not to lose face. If I had not won, then all of my future life would have been different. "

All 1987 Belmondo dedicated play "Kin," which became a milestone in the theatrical life of Paris. He has already thinking of other work on the scene when Claude Lelush invited him to play "Balovne destiny." Belmondo accepts the offer.

Meanwhile, the performance of "Kin" was successfully provezli of the province. And Jean-Paul is already thinking about the production of Sirano de Bergerac. " On this role, the actor wanted a long time: more in the LycГ©e, he fell in love with the romantic hero of Rostand, combining quality with the bully and braggart wit, selflessness and love for Roxana.

Belmondo role Sirano called "suicidal", capable of raising an actor, and destroy it forever. Along with cameraman Osseynom he had departed from the classical interpretation Sirano, of how it played once great CoclГ©, then Jean Marais and Jacques Weber. Yes, Sirano bretter, but he and the poet, a romantic. But the main thing - it is a decent man, loyal friend, a deep sense of persons of his time.

In 1992, Jean-Paul sells commercial TV - Canal Plus - the right of those movies that were made with the participation of his company, and buys the theater room "Variety" on Monmartrovskom Boulevard. "This theater - said Jean-Paul Belmondo - inhabited by ghosts of people dear to me. It is at this stage of Frederick Lemetr played Keene. I see all this finger of fate. From the walls of "Variety" The good waves. "

In his theater, he played in 1993, "Ladies′ tailor." In the same year it suffered a great sorrow: the fire destroyed the original daughter, Patricia, zasnuvshaya fireplace.

Shortly before his sixtieth anniversary of Jean-Paul Belmondo said in an interview: "I am tired of criminals and the police ... Played their предостаточно. Now I draw comedy and classical roles. If my dreams fulfilled, I have to cast movie theater ... "But he did not cast a movie. After Balovnya fate Belmondo is removed from the Georges Lotnera in the movie "Stranger in the House" (1992). It shows the rebirth of its hero, lawyer Hector Lursa. Deleted and sloppy at first, a lawyer transformed in the final picture, with the glitter is the protection of the court.

No less convincing Belmondo plays Fontaine and Fontaine-father-son in the painting "The excluded" (1995) Lelusha. Then the film goes on the famous play by Sasha Gitri "Desire", staged by Bernard Murat.

Demonstrating full range of actors expression, Jean-Paul makes a funny and impassioned monologues dramatist.

Finally there was clarity in his personal life. Parted with Laura Antonelli, Bebel some time caring for the Brazilian models Carlos Sotomayer, the daughter of a major banker. But this novel was short-lived. After Sotomayer in his life was a long time Parisian, a former dancer Natalie Tradivil.

In autumn 1995, when it was declared a theatrical premiere of the comedy Feydo "Bloch in the ear" (Revnivets "), Jean-Paul suddenly appeared in the hospital with stroke. One leg refused to obey him. It had to dissolve the company, to settle accounts with all the money for return tickets. At the treatment lasted for several months.

Premiere Bloch in the ear "was held in mid-October 1996 and was a great success. Belmondo appears on stage in the role of Emanuel Shandebiza, director of the company, and then, on a brilliant Feydo whim, suddenly finds itself in an entirely different hypostasis, as hotel servants, tippler. "For an actor it is a tremendous transformation, and scenic, and mental" - argues Jean-Paul.

In 1998, on the set again met Belmondo and Delon. Set the film "One chance out of two" Patrice Lekont proposed roles of the two older actors in the French rather vague past. According to a plot in their lives invading young woman (Vanessa Paradis), who learned from a dying mother that some of them - her father. An film, full of tricks, has been warmly adopted by the public.

The success, material well-being little changed Belmondo. He is interested in the problems of space, likes to read books about theater, detectives. Children of long ago bestowed upon his grandchildren. Son of Paul - avtogonschik successful and aspiring actor, and granddaughter of actress Anabella has deposits.

In January 2001, Jean-Paul Belmondo begun charging for TV series "Fersho" the novel by Georges Simenona "Case Fersho. Hero Belmondo, a policeman, finds itself in a difficult situation: it suddenly took a criminal case, and criminals like him on this hunt. Jean-Paul began working with his enthusiasm.

But in August he had a ischemic stroke. There was unhappiness in the family vacation in the Corsican town of Lumio. Actor was taken to hospital in Paris Saint-Joseph. His companion Nati permanently on duty at his bed. A week later, Belmondo became better. However, the doctors said would require months to rebuild.

Jean-Paul Belmondo - star international class. He admires the entire world, and many try to emulate him. France on three occasions stated its merits in the field of cinema prize "Cesar". The French refuse to believe that their national hero may happen that something serious. Once at the aircraft, which flew an actor, dead engine. Passengers began to panic, and one of them is desperate to кинулся Belmondo shouting: "As you sit, do anything! .." Actor, kept a stiff upper lip, had promised to arrange everything. Passengers rested, and the liner in the end successfully landed ...
