Dalle in 1999
19 December 1964
Brest, Finistère, France
(?-1998; broken engagement)
Béatrice Dalle (born 19 December 1964) is a French actress.
She was working as a model when she met filmmaker Jean-Jacques Beineix. Beineix cast her in the lead role of the 1986 film 37°2 le matin (later released in the U.K. and U.S.A. under the title Betty Blue) which received BAFTA and Oscar nominations for Best Foreign Language Film, and made a star of Dalle.
In 2001, Dalle appeared in the controversial film, Trouble Every Day, in which she played a vampire. More recently, she starred in the 2007 film À l'intérieur, in which she played a cruel psychopath stalking a pregnant woman.
Dalle's personal life has been somewhat controversial. She has been arrested on several occasions for shoplifting, drug possession and assault. In January, 2005, while making a film about prison life in Brest, Dalle met Guenaël Meziani, who was serving a 12-year prison sentence for assaulting and raping his ex-girlfriend. She married him after 24 one-hour visits, and spoke on his behalf at hearings for his early release.  However, according to a 2015 profile of Dalle, she said the marriage was "a complete disaster" once Meziani was released from prison, and their divorce was apparently finalized in July 2014.
Interviewed on the French TV programme Divan in 2016, Dalle said that, when she used to work in a morgue, she and friends sold body parts from corpses. She also admitted that, whilst on acid, she once ate a dead man's ear.
