Yann Moix on his tribute to Charlotte Valandray: “I did not remove a word, a line, a semicolon, a comma from this tribute”

In the latest issue of Paris Match, writer Yann Moix told his story with actress Charlotte Valandrey, who died on July 13. Over the three pages devoted to him, the director of the film Podium evokes the relationship he had with the actress to whom he wanted to pay tribute.

This tribute was however very badly perceived by the family of the deceased who had published a press release on the Instagram page of the actress (since deleted) indicating in particular that Yann Moix had never been present for Charlotte Valandray when she had need him.

This Friday, the former troublemaker of Laurent Ruquier in the show “We are not lying” decided to respond to the attacks of the family with Paris Match again. “The complicity that I had with her was all the more profound, invaluable and precious as it has always been clandestine”, he begins. He then assures that he had with the actress “a relationship that no one can understand and that no one can take away”.

“What I have to say is very simple: one would have to be naïve to believe that a being distributes itself in the same way to all the interlocutors, the human beings it meets on its way during its existence” .

Yann Moix, however, claims to understand “the infinitely respectable pain of parents” but he nevertheless assures that he will not apologize and will remember the contribution of the actress in his life, she who taught him “to become a man”. “I did not remove a word, a line, a semicolon, a comma from this tribute”. “I’ve done things for Charlotte that my closest friends don’t know, don’t have to know, and never will,” he says.

To conclude, the director ensures that he respects the life of this family and asks them to also respect his.
