He has a habit of giving lead roles to inexperienced young actresses in his films on family life and women.[citation needed] Some actresses to break through are Fanny Bastien, Sandrine Bonnaire, Judith Godrèche, Marianne Denicourt, Charlotte Gainsbourg[1] and Juliette Binoche.

Doillon was born in Paris. He has two daughters: Lola Doillon (born 1975), whose mother is film editor Noëlle Boisson, and Lou Doillon (born 1982), from his relationship with English actress Jane Birkin in the 1980s.[2] He has three other children named Lili, Lina, and Lazare.
