Daughter of singer Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin, Charlotte Gainsbourg was born in London on July 21, 1971.

Supported by her mother, she was put in the spotlight very early on: she appeared for the first time in 1984 in the film Paroles et musique by Elie Chouraqui. The same year, she sang a duet with her father on the song Lemon Incest. Her first album, Charlotte for Ever, was released in 1986. While she participated in various musical projects in the 90s (Les Enfoirés, soundtrack of Love, etc.), the release of 5:55 in 2006 definitely gives a new lease of life to her career. Recognized actress, twice winner of a César, the Prize for Best Actress at the Cannes Film Festival was awarded to her in 2009 for her performance in Antichrist by Lars von Trier.

In February 2018, she won the Vitoire de la musique as Female Artist of the Year for her album Rest, released in November 2017.

On the private side, Charlotte Gainsbourg has shared the life of actor and director Yvan Attal since 1991. They have three children: Ben (1997), Alice Jane (2002) and Joe (2011). Yvan Attal asks for the hand of his companion in June 2013, during a medal ceremony in honor of the actress. But in April 2014 on the set of the show On n’est pas couché, Yvan Attal declares that in the end the couple no longer considers it useful to formalize their love story.
