Date November 27, 2018

Catherine Deneuve, the 75-year-old popular French actress, model, and producer, achieved great results in the professional career. She rose to stardom back in 1964 after playing the role in musical The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.

Catherine Deneuve is also a devoted mother of two children, son Christian and daughter Chiara. Besides, she is already a grandmother and has five grandchildren.

Her daughter, Chiara Mastroianni, has recently opened up about her childhood with famous parents. She was born back in 1972 from Catherine Deneuve’s relations with Marcello Mastroianni. It is rather interesting that Chiara in some way copied her mom’s personal life. She also has two kids, Milo and Anna, from two different men, and her relationships were also public.

As reported by The Guardian, she said:

It's true, I am a single mother, and when I was growing up there was definitely no man around. But I don't think I'm repeating patterns. I've been married and had lovely relationships with them.

Chiara’s childhood was rather complicated, and she missed her parents a lot. Her mother was often away, and there was no possibility to contact her when she was filming somewhere:

I used to envy other kids whose parents worked in offices and came home every night for dinner, I know that. I'd miss my mother when she went away – we didn't have Skype or cellphones of course so when she was, say, filming in Africa, you couldn't get hold of her, you had to wait until she was back at the hotel and hope she would answer the phone. I remember those hours of waiting up to talk to her and having to go to bed without saying good night. She'll tell you she wasn't away that much but I can show you her filmography to prove to you that she most definitely was.

Catherine Deneuve’s son, Christian, is also an actor. He began his acting career back in 1983 and worked with his dad in the movie Surprise Party.

Of course, every child wants to spend more time with parents and to have sweet family evenings after the hard day. Chiara Mastroianni’s childhood was not easy at all. Nevertheless, she managed to become a successful actress, singer, and just a good person.
