Emmanuelle Beart Reveals She Was Victim of Incest – The Hollywood Reporter

French actress Emmanuelle Béart has revealed she was a victim of incest as a child, according to a new documentary she co-directed.

On Tuesday, Agence France Presse reported that the film, titled Such a Resounding Silence, was screened at a press conference. In the documentary, Béart reveals details of the abuse but does not reveal the name of her abuser, and says she was saved by her grandmother.

Béart was not present at the press conference, but co-director Anastasia Mikova said the alleged attacker was not Béart’s father. Mikova added that the incest started when Béart was 10 and continued until she was 14.

AFP reports that in the film, Béart’s voice was heard off-screen, addressing her alleged abuser: “Since my father, my mother and my friends didn’t notice anything, you could do this again, and you did, over four years.”

Such a Resounding Silence tells the story of four victims of incest, including Béart. The film is set to be broadcast on France’s M6 channel on Sept. 24.

A well-known star in France, Béart has been nominated for a Cesar, the country’s top film prize, eight times. She won a Cesar for best supporting actress for her performance in Manon des Sources (1986). She has also starred in 8 Women, Nelly & Monsieur Arnaud and A Strange Passion.

Béart is best known to international audiences for her appearance in Brian de Palma’s Mission: Impossible (1996), in which she played IMF agent Claire Phelps.
