My wife is an actress (Ma femme est une actrice)

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

Paris can boast a population of 2,125,246. Of these, 1,153,000 are women and 10,000 are actresses.

Yvan (Yvan Attal), a young sports writer, is married to one who is very well known - Charlotte (Charlotte Gainsbourg). Her fame makes it difficult for them to live a normal life. Autograph hunters interrupt their dinners, cops about to serve traffic summonses let them off with a warning and a smile when they recognise her, and impossible-to-get restaurant reservations magically appear when Charlotte makes the calls instead of Yvan. All this threatens and challenges his male ego, but Yvan is able to take her stardom in stride. Until, that is, a man at a bar asks him if he gets jealous watching his wife make love in the nude to another man on screen.

It has never seriously bothered him before, but the stranger sows the first seed of doubt in his head. When Charlotte goes to London to shoot her latest film, co-starring John (Terence Stamp), Yvan's questions become more and more insistent. John is unattached and Charlotte, worn down by Yvan's jealousy, starts to doubt their marriage.
