At 54, Estelle Lefébure has made many of her dreams come true. After starting a career in modeling at the age of 19 and posing for the biggest brands, such as Thierry Mugler, Christian Dior, or even Lacoste, the pretty blonde became a television host before trying her luck in the United States. . A true jack-of-all-trades, David Hallyday’s ex-wife has also distinguished herself in cinema and television before publishing two books. However, she had never performed in the theater! To overcome this, Estelle Lefébure will be on the poster for L’invitation, at the Théâtre de la Madeleine from October 22 to November 29, 2020!
If the name of this play means anything to you, it is quite simply, because the play is back on for a third season! If in the original version Gad Elmaleh played Daniel and Lucie Jeanne lent her features to Daniel’s wife with Philippe Lellouche, it is Patrick Chesnais and Estelle Lefébure who will take over the roles that remain vacant. The pitch? The story of a man who created an imaginary friend so that he could cheat on his wife without arousing her suspicion. The day the latter asks to meet this famous friend, Daniel will have to invite a stranger to dinner in order to save his marriage … A hilarious play which has already won over many spectators and which has been performed over a hundred times! Will Estelle Lefébure be able to meet the challenge?
That day when Estelle Lefébure said no to Luc Besson
Mother of two daughters, Ilona (25 years old) and Emma (23 years old), Estelle Lefébure has always put her daughters before her career, which has prevented her from devoting more time to comedy. In the 1990s, the pretty blonde could have become a world star by playing in The Fifth Element, directed by Luc Besson. While she refused this role, Estelle Lefébure revealed to Paris Match in 2015: “At the moment, I did not realize that this project could have changed everything for me! I have no regrets. But if I had to do it again, I would have liked to explore comedy more. I know what image I can send back: soft, healthy, smooth … I would like to go further, prove that I can play as someone else . ” No doubt she will satisfy this desire at the theater next month!
