Alessandro Haber (born 19 January 1947) is an Italian actor, film director and singer.
Haber was born in Bologna in a Jewish family of mixed ancestry (his father was a Romanian Jew and his mother Italian) and spent his childhood in Israel. His movie debut was in 1967 with La Cina è vicina by Marco Bellocchio. His first leading role was in Pupi Avati's Regalo di Natale.
He is also a distinguished theatre actor, having performed amongst others in Orgia by Pier Paolo Pasolini, Woyzeck by Georg Büchner, L'avaro by Molière, Zio Vania by Anton Chekhov, Dialogo by Natalia Ginzburg and Arlecchino by Carlo Goldoni.
As a singer, he has released three albums: Haberrante, Qualcosa da dichiarare and Il sogno di un uomo. His greatest success was the single "La valigia dell'attore", written for him by Francesco De Gregori.
In June 2011 Haber attempted to kiss actress Lucia Lavia onstage during a rehearsal for Othello at the Teatro Romano di Verona. She responded by slapping him and he immediately slapped her back while accusing her of being "cold." After the intervention of both their lawyers, the theater forced Haber to leave the production and he was replaced by Franco Branciaroli.
