The famous "Emmanuelle" began her career in the modeling business, but Sylvia Christel gained worldwide popularity as an actress who starred in explicit erotic scenes. So provocative that the bestselling film was released under the "X" code, allowing it to be shown in private and specialty cinemas. But Christelle acquired the status of the sex symbol of the era.



Childhood and youth

The charming French actress of Dutch origin, who was not afraid to shock the world, was born in September 1952 in the center of the Netherlands, Utrecht. Sylvia Kristel in her memoirs, published 3 years before her death, spoke frankly about the atmosphere in the family and parents. My father owned a hotel, and my mother worked with him. Parents showed no visible concern for their children: they were absorbed in work and clarification of relationships.

At the age of 4, little Sylvia Maria ran away from home, riding a train into the unknown. At the age of 9, her aunt saved her niece from rape, which left an imprint on the child's psyche. At the age of 10, the future Emmanuelle persuaded her sister to dance on the bar of an empty hall "without anything." The grandmother, who saw that her granddaughter was growing up by no means a modest one, pasted over the mirrors in the house, not allowing the girl to admire the reflection for hours.

In her memoirs, Sylvia Christel opened the unsightly pages of her biography, saying that doctors found mental disorders in each of her Dutch relatives. Parents loved to drink, revealing to their daughter the taste of alcohol in infancy: in order to calm the baby down, mother applied sugar soaked in brandy to her lips. At the age of 11, the girl was sent to a boarding school at the Catholic Church. In the boarding house, the matured Sylvia bitterly realized that no one needed it: fellow practitioners drove home for the weekend in their parents' cars, and Christelle went to Utrecht by train.

In the boarding school, Sylvia Christel turned out to be a successful student, and after graduation, her parents sent her daughter to Sydney, where she continued her studies at a Protestant seminary. At the age of 15, Christelle suffered a blow: her parents parted, her father went to his mistress. The children stayed with their mother. Then the young beauty, accustomed to catching interested male glances on herself, had a desire to become a star, proving her worth to her father.




At the age of 20, Sylvia Christel received the Miss Television title in her native Holland, and at 21 in Europe. In the same 1973, the Dutch woman started her cinematic career: the girl appeared in the "adult" drama "Frank and Eve" and in two thrillers. Sylvia Christel's film career has developed rapidly. The attractive beauty was noticed by the Parisian photographer and aspiring director Just Jacquin: he was looking for a relaxed artist for a role in an erotic film, but the French actresses did not agree to extremely frank scenes.

Kristel saw a chance to become famous in the project and did not lose, although the shooting was not easy. To relieve the stiffness, Sylvia needed a glass of champagne every time she turned on the camera. The budget of the erotic-pornographic film "Emmanuelle" is modest by Hollywood standards - half a million dollars. The director saved every meter of film, limiting himself to the first takes. The crashed rented Jaguar ate half of the project's budget, and the police arrested the group for shooting on a Thai beach. The footage was saved by handing a clean reel to the police.

The French censorship denied the film, calling it pornography. Only after the departure of President Georges Pompidou and the liberal Giscard d'Estaing came to power, the tape was released, allowing it to be shown since 1974. Glory fell on the actress. Kilometer-long queues lined up in front of the cinemas, couriers transported copies of the film from cinema hall to cinema hall. An advertisement for the film "Emmanuel", in which Christelle sits naked in a wicker chair, hung on the Champs Elysees for 13 years. Over the years, 9 million French people have watched the tape.

After the release of the film "Emmanuel", Sylvia Christel starred in six official sequels and five free interpretations with the name of the heroine in the titles. The scandalous fame of "Emmanuely" lasted until the 1990s, directors of America and Europe removed dozens of fakes of the picture. In the ensuing sequels of the erotic tape, Christelle's filming partners turned out to be stars Roger Vadim, Warren Beatty, Jean-Louis Trintignant and Gerard Depardieu.

But Sylvia also reincarnates in other heroines. In 1977, she starred in the fantasy drama directed by Claude Chabrol, Alice, or the Last Escape. The next year she appeared in the Dutch military tape "Pastoral 1943". In 1979, Sylvia Christel delighted the audience with her appearance in the Italian-French erotic comedy Love in a First Class Carriage, the Hollywood disaster film Airport 79 with Alain Delon, and the provocative film Naked Bomb, where she played a special agent.

In the early 1980s, the premiere of the erotic film Lady Chatterley's Lover, directed by Emmanuelle, Just Jacquin, took place. Another sensational project - the provocative Hollywood comedy Private Lessons - hit the Russian distribution through illegal videos in the 1990s.

In the mid-1980s, Sylvia Christel reincarnated as the charming dancer and fatal spy Mata Hari. The film was directed by American director Curtis Harrington and was released in the spring of 1985. In the 1990s, Sylvia Christel worked tirelessly in remakes of Emmanuelle, which made her famous. A dozen other projects received neither the attention of the audience, nor the blessing of film critics. In the last two films, which did not receive a warm welcome from movie lovers, Christelle starred in 2010.



Personal life

The first man with whom Sylvia Christel began a long-term relationship was a children's writer from Belgium Hugo Klaus. In the mid-1970s, the artist gave birth to her son Arthur, but being busy on the set of the next "Emmanuely" distracted the young mother from raising her child, which the woman later regretted. At the age of 6, the boy went to study in Holland and saw his mother only on holidays.

After 5 years of married life, a scandalous divorce followed: Hugo could not stand the movie star's romances and her addiction to alcohol. After breaking up with Klaus, Sylvia Christel's personal life resembles her erotic movie saga. Promiscuous relationships, short novels, cocaine replaces alcohol. The sister took the nephew from the negligent mother and took him to Holland.

The second husband of the actress was Alan Turner, who endured a stormy life with Christelle for six months. The star refused cocaine when she almost lost her home for the debts. Sylvia Christelle moved from France to America with actor Ian McShane. Even in Hollywood, which has seen all kinds of things, the actress's reputation causes gossip. Cocaine and alcohol again entered Sylvia's life. After being beaten by McShane, pregnant Christelle lost her baby.

Another spouse - a failed director Philip Blo, let Christelle's savings go to waste: real estate in Paris, Los Angeles and Saint-Tropez was sold to pay off Philippe's debts. From scandals and debts, the star left for Amsterdam. Painting became an outlet for the woman: paintings by Sylvia Christel are bought, but the money is taken away by bailiffs.

Son Arthur tried to make a career in cinema, but after filming two projects he quit show business and worked in his aunt's coffee shop. In the life of Sylvia Christelle had an affair with President Giscard d'Estaing. The couple did not hide the love relationship, d'Estaing took his mistress to official meetings.




The Emmanueli star has been smoking since she was 11. In 2003, a woman, feeling a sore throat, consulted a doctor. The diagnosis stunned Sylvia Christel: laryngeal cancer. The disease melted the ice in the relationship between mother and son: they became close.

The actress has undergone 35 radiation and dozens of chemotherapy treatments. The disease receded. Christelle did not smoke and sometimes allowed herself a glass of wine. But in 2009, doctors found metastases in Sylvia's lungs. In the summer of 2012, after chemotherapy, Sylvia Christel suffered a stroke. The woman died on an October night of the same year. She was buried in Utrecht.
