Emmanuelle B顲t is the daughter of french singer and poet Guy B顲t and Italian-Greek mother, Genevi趥 Galea. She was born on the 14 August 1965 in St. Tropez, France. After her parents divorce she was raised by her mother in a remote mountain village in provence with her three brothers and her sister . As a teenager, left for Montreal. There she, apparently, met Robert Altman who encouraged her to become an actress. She attended a drama school in paris before being cast in Premiers d鳩rs later.
She first became well known in Manon des Sources the sequel to Jean de Florette when she won Best Supporting Actress. Emmanuelle has risen to great national and international fame as an actress not merely because of her beauty, she is also capable of deep emotional empathy with the character she is playing. Like many actresses she spends a long time preparing her characters, in Un Coeur en Hiver for instance she apparently practiced the violin every day for eighteen months.
Emmanuelle Beart had a long relationship with Daniel Auteuil, her co-star in several films. She has a daughter, Nelly (born April 18th 1992), by Auteuil, and a young son Johan (born March 1996) by her current boyfriend David Moreau (the half-brother of French actor Patrick Bruel). But she says her children will not interfere with her acting career: "For the moment, I just put them in a backpack and bring them along with me. I love the fact that they can travel with me. I just decided that I would not put my professional life on hold to raise children. I know that sounds selfish to a lot of people and I don't know if what I'm doing is the right thing. But that's the way I'm doing it."
One of her greatest irritations is the curiosity of the press: "It's madness. They follow me. I sue them. That's the deal. I have to admit that it's getting painful to stay polite... I give everything I have to give on the screen. I feel I don't owe the public anything else."
