Jean-Paul Belmondo

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Jean-Paul Belmondo, né le 9 avril 1933 à Neuilly-sur-Seine est un acteur français. Il a également été producteur de cinéma et directeur de théâtre. Alternant dans les premières années de sa carrière les films populaires et d'art et essai avant de pencher nettement pour la première catégorie, il est rapidement devenu l'une des plus grandes vedettes du cinéma français, champion incontesté du box-office au même titre que Louis de Funès et Alain Delon à la même époque. En cinquante ans de carrière, il a attiré dans les salles près de 130 millions de spectateurs : entre 1969 et 1982, il a joué à quatre reprises dans le film le plus vu de l'année en France (Le Cerveau, Peur sur la ville, L'Animal, L'As des as), égalant le record de Fernandel et n'étant dépassé sur ce point que par Louis de Funès. Il a tourné sous la direction de grands réalisateurs français, tels Alain Resnais, Louis Malle, Philippe de Broca, Henri Verneuil, Jean-Luc Godard, Claude Chabrol, François Truffaut, Claude Sautet, Jean-Pierre Melville, Claude Lelouch, Jean-Paul Rappeneau, Georges Lautner ou encore Gérard Oury, ainsi qu'avec quelques réalisateurs étrangers comme Vittorio De Sica, Mauro Bolognini ou Peter Brook. Un grand nombre de ses films sont devenus des classiques du cinéma français, comme Le Professionnel, Borsalino, À bout de souffle, L'Homme de Rio, Le Magnifique, Un singe en hiver, Pierrot le fou, Le Cerveau ou L'As des as. À partir du milieu des années 1980, il raréfie sa présence au cinéma et se produit surtout au théâtre. Retiré du cinéma et des planches à la suite de problèmes de santé, il a toutefois tourné en 2009 dans Un homme et son chien de Francis Huster.
