Jan Moix responds to Charlotte Vallandry’s family who questioned his honor published in our columns on July 21.
Following Yann Moix’s tribute to Charlotte Valandry posted in Paris Match (#3820, dated July 21), the actress’ family spoke out via an Instagram press release, posted on Monday and then pulled out. It evokes “testimonials related to storytelling, screenwriting, and characterisation”. She refers to the “text of a historian-author who invented himself” brother “and adds:” None of the closest is aware of this complicity.”

“I will not—and will not—omit a word, line, semicolon, or comma from this tribute,” Yann Moix explains to Paris Match. “I fully sympathize and fully understand that the parents of this wonderful daughter can be in a state of grief and depression.”
And on the evening of the announcement of the death of the artist, the writer expressed his deep sadness on his Instagram account. The latter, a regular contributor to Paris Match, agreed to paint the portrait of Charlotte Valandry, the one he liked, with whom he became friends and whose sister he would have liked. “What I must say is very simple: one must be naive to think that a being distributes itself in the same way to all interlocutors, and to the mortals whom he meets on his way while he is. We are never the same with a family, as with a lover or a mistress, as he is The case with friends, as in the professional field… Each one comes his own way depending on the interlocutor or the place.(…) The complicity I had with her was more profound, invaluable and precious because it was always secret.The writer says: “We had a relationship that no one could understand and no one could take away from us.”
Everyone mourned Charlotte.
Jan Moix and Charlotte Valanderi, born in the same year, met at the age of thirty. “I was very captivated, I listened to her a lot. We talked a lot, laughed a lot, and yelled at each other a lot, he summarizes. There were periods when we lost seeing each other, and we always found each other. I did things to Charlotte that my best friends don’t know about, nor They need to know it, and they never will.”
The writer says he wrote his tribute “at once,” “at an airport,” “without thinking, in less than an hour and a half.” I will not apologize for my article. Whether it is the parents whose pain is infinitely respectful whether it is or not. I also ask them to respect mine. Everyone mourned Charlotte. They mourned Charlotte who gave birth, and I mourned Charlotte who taught me to become a man.
Jan Moix also regrets that his text in our columns has been taken up and subsequently defaced by many other headlines. “There are so diverse websites that my notes are so biased that I didn’t even recognize my Paris Match article (…) Between the text I wrote and the way they extracted their books, there is absolutely no connection.”
After this development, he only cares about one thing: “My wish is that the Charlotte I know lives in peace.”
