She stayed with Beverly Mellen and William Sofin and their two children Andrew and Sean Sofin, who took her in as their own. At the end of the summer the family invited her to stay with them and complete her baccalauréat at Collège international Marie de France. They have remained close friends.[4] Career[edit] Béart got an acting role in 1976 film Tomorrow's Children. In her teens she appeared in bit parts in television. Upon graduating from the Collège International Marie de France in Montreal, she returned to France to attend drama school in Paris.

and A French Woman); they married in 1993 but divorced in 1995. Béart was also romantically linked to music producer David François Moreau (since c. 1995 after she separated from Auteuil)[4][8] and to film producer Vincent Meyer for two years until his suicide in May 2003.[6] She has three children: Nelly Auteuil (born c. 1993), and Johan Moreau (born c. 1996).[4] She married actor Michaël Cohen on 13 August 2008 at Genappe

She is an ambassador for UNICEF, and has made news for her opposition to France's anti-immigration legislation. In 1996, she made headlines when, defending the rights of the "sans-papiers" ("without papers", meaning illegal immigrants), she was removed after her group’s occupation of a Paris church. In March 2012, Béart spoke out against plastic surgery in Le Monde saying that she regretted having an operation on her lips in 1990 when she was 27.[9] Selected filmography[edit]
