Early life[edit] Godrèche was born in the 17th arrondissement of Paris. Her father is a psychoanalyst, and her mother a child therapist. Her parents separated when she was eight years old. Her father is Jewish; his parents were Holocaust
survivors from Poland and Russia who changed their surname from Goldreich.[1] After being discovered for her first role at the age of 14, Godrèche left school and moved away from her parents to begin her acting career. By the age of 16, she settled into a relationship with director Benoît Jacquot, 25 years her senior. Career[edit] Her early work included commercial modeling for a Japanese chocolate maker, as well as a teen magazine. Her first film appearance was as Claudia Cardinale's daughter in L'été prochain. At 14, she obtained her first major role, in Jacquot's Les mendiants, with Dominique Sanda. In 1989, Godrèche starred in Jacques Doillon's La fille de 15 ans with Melvil Poupaud, which brought her fame. The following year, she turned to a full-time career in film. In 1990 she was nominated for the César Award for Most Promising Actress for her performance in Jacquot's La désenchantée. In 1991, she was a member of the jury at the 41st Berlin International Film Festival.[2] In 1994 her novel Point de côté was published in France by Broché Publishers to good reviews. Godrèche was not well known to American audiences until Patrice Leconte's Ridicule
was released in 1996. The film introduced her to Americans in the role of Mathilde de Bellegarde. In 1998 she starred with Leonardo DiCaprio

in The Man in the Iron Mask. Godrèche was nominated for a 2002 César Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the surprise European hit, L'Auberge espagnole. Her first record inspired from the film Toutes les filles pleurent was released by Because Music. In 2012, she began playing the continuing character of Claudette Von Jurgens in season 3 of Royal Pains.[3] Godrèche's performance as Charlotte in the film The Overnight has led to her being called a "breakout" star of 2015. She is also starring in an upcoming HBO
comedy about a French actress who moves to Los Angeles.[4] Personal life[edit] Godrèche had a long-term relationship with Benoît Jacquot

as an adult, which she attributed to her close relationship with her paternal grandparents.[1] Filmography[edit] Actress[edit]
