If many couples refuse to mix private life and professional life, Vanessa Paradis and Samuel Benchetrit do not care. Since April 21 and until May 20, the two lovebirds will be, from Tuesday to Saturday, on the boards of the Edouard VII theater, in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, to play “Maman”, a play directed by the actor . In full promotion of his latest project, the dad of Jules and Saul connects the interviews. This Thursday, April 27, 2023, he was the guest of Maud Descamps and Thomas Sotto on the set of Telematin. An opportunity for the filmmaker to discuss his relationship with the 50-year-old singer, actress and model.
According to him, working with his girlfriend has been “very easy” And “very pleasant”. Although he admits to having had a few scares, he quickly realized that they “had a lot of fun”. “It’s mixing intimacy, being together a lot. It’s a funny thing, but it’s so joyful. It’s a love piece, it’s not a couple tearing themselves apart on stage, on the contrary, it’s a couple who love each other so it’s rather pleasant”, he specified.
Samuel Benchetrit, a second choice for the role
However, Samuel Benchetrit should not give the reply to Vanessa Paradis. Originally, Éric Elmosnino was the one who was to play alongside the actress. A role he unfortunately had to give up. Besides, Samuel Benchetrit had no “urge” to share the stage with his girlfriend. “It’s just that Eric couldn’t do the tour. I couldn’t find an actor to replace him because it wasn’t easy to find an actor who could catch up a little bit and I was the candidate as much as possible since I am about the age and I had to go”. A choice that the actor and director obviously does not regret.
