Daughter of one of the greatest French stars and one of the greatest Italian actors, Chiara Mastroianni has, however, belatedly realized how famous his mother was and known all over the world. In 2022, Anna Biolay’s mother revealed to Madame Figaro the memory of her childhood when she realized the important notoriety of her mother : “Until the age of 12, I was educated in a Montessori institute in Paris, where no one cared who was who…” she then recounted, explaining that seeing her mother in Donkey Skin where making the cover of magazines seemed to him “normal” since she did not know “that this universe”.
It’s finally thanks to a surprising shotthat Chiara Mastroianni understood the public importance of her mother: “A day, my mother came back from America with a photo of her with Miss Piggy from the Muppet Show, of which I was a huge fan. That day, I deduced that she must be someone very important” she concluded with a laugh. Like what, in the eyes of Chiara Mastroianni as a child, Catherine Deneuve’s successes at the time were very different from those of the rest of the population!
