“He built me…”: Jean Reno overwhelmed by emotion when talking about his contrasting relationship with his father

Monday June 20, 2022, Jean Reno was present at the Monte-Carlo Festival. During the press conference for the series All these things that we did not say to each other, the actor spoke with emotion of his father.

From June 17 to 21, 2022, an audience of stars went to the Monte-Carlo Festival. Monday June 20, 2022, Jean Reno took part in the press conference for the series All those things we didn’t say to each other, based on the best-selling novel by Marc Lévy. In it, the actor plays Michel, who travels from Paris to Berlin via Bruges and Madrid with his daughter, with whom he has a complicated relationship. Asked about his own father, Jean Reno told our colleagues from TV Star : “My father didn’t talk much, he didn’t show affection or tenderness towards me, because he was from the 19th century. But at the same time, he built me, he built me…” Moved, the actor would then have heaved a big sigh before asking to “move on.

Facing the actor, the journalists of TV Star asked him a question about the symbol of the olive tree, a tree “eternal“, which leads him to talk about death. Again, Jean Reno had to stop, too moved to answer. The actor rarely mentioned his father in the media. In April 2014, on the show The unexpected parenthesis, on France 2, he had revealed that he had always known that he wanted to be an actor. “I wanted to be other than me“, he had declared. With emotion, he had explained: “I can’t talk to my dad about it, he’ll say shut up. For him, it was difficult to manage the people we saw on TV. These people couldn’t be part of his family. Not his son… I guess he was devaluing me. I don’t think he could give me that importance.“However, nothing could change his mind.”I’m going to be an actor because I was born an actor“, he added.

Jean Reno: “He was extremely afraid for me”

Faced with Frédéric Lopez, the godfather of Jade Hallyday could not hold back his tears when speaking of his father. He then said:It costs me huh. It costs me to revisit it, to revisit my father…“After a moment of silence, Jean Reno had dropped:”I miss him… It’s obvious that I miss him and my mother. I will miss them all my life. I couldn’t deal with my father, he was extremely afraid for me. And then my determination wasn’t based on anything… Once that’s said, it feels good!
