Jean Louis Trintignant’s Death Comes Out As a Big Shock

His wife Mariane Hoepfner Trintignant shared Jean Louis Trintignant’s death with the public this morning, saying that the actor of And God created the woman and Love, passed away at his home, in the Gard, surrounded by his relatives.

Charles Bramesco tribute: “Jean-Louis Trintignant was a powerhouse in COL CUORE IN GOLA, a little-seen early Giallo from Tinto Brass in which the actor absolutely pulverizes a drum set while costar Ewa Aulin does a striptease. Switches between color and b/w for budget reasons. Good flick. True movie star.”

Mr. Trintignant was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2018. He announced at that point that his disease would not be seeking treatment. It was shared that he was gradually losing his sight and was in declining health in November 2021.

To know a little about his personal life must be noted that he married more than once. His first wife was actress Stéphane Audran and his second wife, who also is an actress, is Nadine Marquand. Nadine is also a screenwriter and director.

He was blessed by three children: Vincent, Pauline (who died of crib death in 1969), and Marie Trintignant (who passed away on August 1, 2003).

Marie performed in La Terrazza when she was only 17-year-old, alongside her father. She became a successful actress; however, unfortunately, it did not last. She was killed at the age of 41 by her boyfriend, who was a singer, Bertrand Cantat, in a hotel room in Vilnius, Lithuania.

During the span of her 36-year career, Beloved Marie appeared in over 30 movies. Her father was an actor and her mother was a director, producer, and screenwriter, so you can see that her family was deeply involved in France’s film industry. May she rest in peace.

A fan wrote: “They don’t externalization or project everything. They keep a mystery within themselves, and that I think is the sign of a truly great actor, to be able to maintain that.” – Haneke on Jean-Louis Trintignant (and Brando). RIP king.”

One tweeted: “His voice. His presence. His charisma. His incredible career, spanned 6 decades from Cavalier to Lelouch, from Bertolucci to Haneke and so many more.
Mourning the immense #JeanLouisTrintignant who passed away today at 91. 🖤🖤🖤”
