Last Saturday, Anny Duperey reacted to the Judith Godrèche affair by denouncing “a late witch hunt”. Words which quickly made Alexandra Lamy react.
Since the two complaints filed by Judith Godrèche against the directors Benoît Jacquot and Jacques Doillon for rape when she was a teenager, reactions have been flowing. On Saturday, it was Anny Duperey who gave her point of view on the affair, denouncing a “late witch hunt”.
“I’m going to get hit, but I think this is all extremely exaggerated,” she declared on “RTL” radio. “Six years with a director anyway… Under the influence, I’m willing, but still consenting, right? » As a reminder, Judith Godrèche was in a relationship with Benoît Jacquot in the 1980s. She was 14 years old, he was 39. At the beginning of January, the actress denounced what she experienced with this director 25 years her senior.
Alexandra Lamy insurgent
“Maybe I was lucky because I was kind of a survivor, no one was likely to attack me. I did not have the profile of a victim,” she concluded, provoking lively controversy online. Alexandra Lamy spoke directly on X.
” You want [parler des] 93,000 women victims of rape per year, of the 220 women murdered by their spouse or ex-spouse who, unlike you, have the profile of the victim,” she exclaimed, speaking directly to Anny Duperey. “No one dared to attack you. You would almost be disappointed not to have had this experience of harassment. They’re not witches, they’re rapists. Thank you for asking everyone who has the courage to speak to keep quiet because it’s been too long! »
Faced with a massive relay of her comments deemed inappropriate, Anny Duperey justified herself through a press release revealed by an “AFP” journalist.
“Obviously, I condemn any action of rape or seductive abuse of power – especially of children or adolescents,” she wrote, recalling that she has not been “godmother for more than 30 years of an association in favor of the defense of children for nothing” and that she was “one of the first signatories for the release of Jacqueline Sauvage”, not “not by chance”. Admitting to having expressed herself in an awkward manner, the actress revealed that her intention was to “temper the media hype”.
