Guest at the microphone of the show There is not just one life in life, broadcast on the waves of Europe 1 this Sunday, November 21, 2021, Pascal Elbé – on the film poster We are made for each other, released in theaters on November 17 – returned to his family life. After separating from Béatrice Elbé in 2014, the 54-year-old director shared some secrets about his son Léo.
Faced with questions from Isabelle Morizet, Pascal Elbé quickly got caught up in the question-and-answer game. After indicating that his latest film – about deafness – is inspired by his own health problems, the 54-year-old actor also spoke about his life alongside his son Léo (20). “I live with him, we both live, we are like a kind of old couple“, shared the father, not without pride. And to believe his words, his son does not intend to follow in his father’s footsteps. Like many children of stars who embark on the same career as their parents , the young man decided to go his own way.
“He works in a digital college, which I’m trying to understand and he’s still very seasoned. I think later, maybe even he will write. He has something. In any case, he has facilities“, then indicated the actor, proud. And to continue, on the refusal of his son to participate in one of his productions:”Obviously we do a job that is very attractive and it’s everyone’s business at home when we do this job, but it’s true thathe doesn’t necessarily want to be in the light.”
Deafness discovered late …
During an interview with our colleagues from Madame Figaro, last November 12, Pascal Elbé had already poured out – in all transparency – on his handicap. “I put a lot of myself into this character, but unlike him, I didn’t start listening to others the day I went deaf“, he had confided, mentioning to have initially denied his condition. And to continue:”I had the impression that the others articulated badly or did not speak loud enough, I read lips, until the day when my deafness appeared to me to be the truth. I do not suffer from a serious handicap, but being diminished is still quite ungrateful and requires arming yourself with patience and humility. You have to dare to say if you can’t hear, and it’s sometimes a little embarrassing.”
