Charlotte Rampling, OBE (born February 5, 1946 in Sturmer, Essex) is an English actress and former model (her height is 170 cm (5' 7")). She attended Jeanne d'Arc Academie pour Jeunes Filles in Versailles and St. Hilda's School in Bushey, Hertfordshire, England.

Career

After beginning her acting career at age seventeen in a starring commercial role and working as a model for a while, Rampling's first screen role was uncredited as a water skier in Richard Lester's film The Knack...and How to Get It in 1965 which was followed a year later by the role of Meredith in the film Georgy Girl. After this her acting career blossomed in both English and French cinema.

Young Rampling was sexy in the skinny, boyish way favored by the times. Despite an early flurry of success, however, she told The Independent, "We weren't happy. It was a nightmare, breaking the rules and all that. Everyone seemed to be having fun, but they were taking so many drugs they wouldn't know it anyway."[1]

Rampling has often performed controversial roles. In 1969, in Luchino Visconti's The Damned (La Caduta degli dei), she played a young wife sent to a concentration camp. This role redrew Rampling entirely as mysterious, tragic, even sinister. "The Look" as co-star Dirk Bogarde called it, became her trademark. [2] In 1974's The Night Porter she portrayed a former concentration camp inmate entangled in a sado-masochistic relationship with her former guard, played by Bogarde. Rampling's 2005 film at age 59 was Laurent Cantet's Heading South (Vers le Sud), a film about female sexual tourism. She plays Ellen, a professor of French literature and single Englishwoman, who holidays in 1970s Haiti to get the sexual attention she does not get at home. On her choice of roles, Rampling says, "I generally don't make films to entertain people. I choose the parts that challenge me to break through my own barriers. A need to devour, punish, humiliate, or surrender seems to be a primal part of human nature, and it's certainly a big part of sex. To discover what normal means, you have to surf a tide of weirdness." [3]

Other roles embody a personal twist: The character she played in François Ozon's Swimming Pool (2003), Sarah Morton, was named after her oldest sister, Sarah, who after giving birth committed suicide at age 23. [4] For most of Rampling's life she would say only that her sister had died of a brain hemorrhage; when she and her father heard the news, they agreed they would never let Charlotte's mother know the truth. They kept their secret until Rampling's mother died in 2001. [5]

Personal life

In 1972, Rampling married the actor Bryan Southcombe. They lived in a ménage à trois with a male model<ref name="independent" /> and had one child, Barnaby, before divorcing in 1976. Barnaby is now a successful television director. In 1978, she married the French composer Jean Michel Jarre and had two children, the magician David Jarre and the fashion designer Emily Jarre. The marriage was publicly dissolved in the late 1990s when she found out via tabloid newspaper stories about Jarre's affairs with other women and had a nervous breakdown. She has been engaged to Jean-Noel Tassez, a French communications tycoon, since 1998.

In 1995, Empire (magazine) voted Rampling #97 out of 100 of the Sexiest Stars in history while she was one of People Magazines "50 Most Beautiful People" in May 2001.

Rampling credits François Ozon with drawing her back to film in the 2000s, a period when she came to terms with the death of her sister Sarah in the 1960s. "I thought that after such a long time of not letting her be with me," she told The Guardian, "I would like to bring her back into my life." [6]
