In September 2005, in her autobiography called "L'amour dans le sang" ("Love inside the blood"), she publicly announced that she is HIV-positive since 1987. She was nearly 18 when she learned that: she was infected after a relationship with a drug-addict musician. She fights against the disease since then. Was the first choice to star in "Noce Blanche" in 1989, she even did the whole rehearsals, but a few days before shooting, she told the director she is HIV-positive. The news were heard by the movie's insurance company, which refused to insure the film if she played in it. Her role went to Vanessa Paradis. In 2000, she gave birth to a daughter, who is fortunately HIV-negative. In 2003, she had to under-go surgery (heart transplantation) because her dying heart only could function at 10% of its abilities. She has to take 23 pills every day.
Gave birth to a daughter, Tara, in February 2000.
