Biography

Gainsbourg was born in London, England and raised in Paris, France. Her father is Serge Gainsbourg, and her mother is Jane Birkin. Her uncle is the screenwriter Andrew Birkin who directed her in The Cement Garden.

Gainsbourg made her motion picture début playing Catherine Deneuve's daughter in the 1984 film Paroles et musique. She made her musical debut with her father on the song Lemon Incest.

In 1986, Gainsbourg won a César Award for "Most Promising Actress" for L'effrontée, and in 2000 she won "Best Supporting Actress" for the film La Bûche.

In 1994, Gainsbourg made her stage debut in David Mamet's Oleanna at the Théâtre de la Gaîté-Montparnasse.

Gainsbourg has sung the title song in three of her films and has released two albums. In 2004, she sang a duet with French pop star Étienne Daho on his single "If".

Gainsbourg's longtime boyfriend, and now spouse according to some sites, is the French actor and director Yvan Attal, and they have two children, Ben and Alice.

Late on September 5, 2007, she was rushed into a Paris hospital where she went under surgery for cerebral haemorrhage. She had had headaches since a light water skiing accident in the United States, a couple of weeks before.

"Girls can wear jeans, cut their hair short, wear shirts and boots, 'cause it's okay to be a boy, but for a boy to look like a girl is degrading, because you think that being a girl is degrading, but secretly, you'd love to know what it's like, wouldn't you? What it feels like for a girl."
- She also did background vocals on the Badly Drawn Boy songs "What Is It Now?" and "Using Our Feet". Both tracks are from his third album, Have You Fed the Fish?.
- Charlotte and Jarvis Cocker performed a duet on "The Duelist", a track that appears on the 2007 release Pocket Symphony by Air.
