More than 40 years married, she talks about ‘suffering’ what love is

Thierry Lhermitte is not too stingy with secrets when it comes to his private life. In fact, after the actor revealed his health problem, this time the actor talks about his life as a couple.

Thierry Lhermitte has made perfect love to his wife, Hélène, for more than four decades. But if during these years, the couple falls for joy, according to the handsome “Des bronzed”, their love also identifies him as “suffering”.


Thierry Lhermitte is one of the most important personalities in France. And rightly so, because in addition to being a successful actor, he is also known as a medical columnist.

It was in particular on Ali Rebeihi’s program “Good for you”, on the waves of France Inter, that Hélène’s husband talked about medicine, a topic that interested her very much.

“The complexity of life amazes me”,

he mentions in Parisian columns.

However, it should be remembered that Thierry Lhermitte became interested only in medicine and science when he became an adult, because in his youth he was more like “a teenager whose everything fell apart”.

However, this love has nothing to do with his medical problem. A topic that has also sparked rumors and where the actor has to explain himself in an interview.

In fact, some time ago, after a radio comedy, many people thought Victor’s father had prosopagnosia, or facial amnesia.

However, in the words of the medical columnist, if you don’t always get to know people on the street, it’s not really because of this disease.

“Except I’m not prosopagnosic, I’m not a physiognomist, it can be very embarrassing but we’re far from the disease”,

he declared.

Although Thierry Lhermitte has stated that he does not have prosopagnosia, he nevertheless acknowledges that his vision problem can sometimes hurt those close to him.

“When the third time, I introduced myself to someone who had said to me ten minutes ago,‘ I’ve seen you before ’, it was horrible”,

he said in an interview.

In addition, being inseparable, the two lovebirds quickly have a desire to start a family. This is why they did not take long to welcome their three children, including Astrée, Victor and Louise.

At the same time, the father of the family was able to make a career in the cinema world and become famous. But despite its popularity, it hasn’t changed their lives as a couple.

However, the two lovers are together thick and thin. While Thierry Lhermitte’s love remains.

“I used to be and remain a man to a woman: mine. I still love him and my family is the source of my strength in this profession where there is very little. ”,

he said at the Paris Match. Well said.

In addition, in an interview with Femme Actuemme magazine, the actor admitted that his family has “a lot of problems”. Something he found “super normal”.

It seems, however, that in love, the “Des Bronzés” star has a certain fear. And obviously, it caused him a lot of pain, according to his statement.

“Like everyone else, I’ve been able to discover this in pain. I’ve lived with my wife for forty years. It takes so much, and respectfully, knowing that it can stop at any hour”.

he revealed in the magazine.

However, married for many years, it must be said that the two lovebirds were able to continue their lives as a couple. Note that in order to maintain this love, they are not obligated to tell each other everything.

“(…) Do we have to tell each other everything? I’m not talking about cheating, but should we say ‘I don’t hate you now’, or ‘I hate you’? Everyone does what they want (…) “,

Maintaining a relationship is not easy, it takes a lot of effort and perseverance. However, Thierry Lhermitte, who has always played the role of the cinematographer, was able to maintain his relationship with Hélène despite the difficult times they faced.

For more than four decades, the actor has sailed the ups and downs of life with a woman, the mother of his three children. A long life where many people would definitely dream of knowing the secret.

Guest of the show 50 ‘Inside on Saturday May 14, who played the role of Pierre Brochant in “Le Dîner de cons” is not stingy with words about the secret ingredients of their love.

Curious as others, Nikos Aliagas did not forget to ask him the secret of the strength of his relationship with Hélène. A question Astrée’s father did not hesitate to answer.

“There are no secrets. I, for me it is to know that love is not unconditional “,

he begins before explaining his theory of love:

“When you were young, you knew only the love of your parents. As a rule, this is called unconditional love. Well, and so we learned in our first love stories that love is not unconditional, that love is conditional. That’s why it’s negotiable and it’s temporary. ”

So, for Thierry Lhermitte, love is a feeling that doesn’t last and last long and it can stop overnight. In addition, the couple did not celebrate their wedding anniversary for fear that it would disrupt their relationship.

“We were afraid it would bring us bad luck. It can be the secret to a relationship’s longevity: the thought that it might stop tomorrow ”,

he revealed a few years ago at the Gala, emphasizing, once again, that for a relationship to work, you have to know that nothing lasts forever!
