In a recent interview with Paris Match, Alessandra Sublet returned to her new life in the south of France and the trajectory her career is taking. The opportunity also for the now actress to discuss her love life and her way of conceiving motherhood, she who has never bowed down in the face of narrow criticism from some.
A few days ago, Alessandra Sublet announced that she would soon leave her duties as a TV host to devote herself to other loves: comedy. On May 2, 2022, TF1 will broadcast “Handi Gang”, a TV movie in which it gives the reply to disabled swimmer, Théo Curin. “The more I am told that this choice is crazy, the more I am convinced that it is the right one. I purposely did not tell anyone about it. It is a decision that I have matured for a year” has entrusted Alessandra Sublet in the columns of Paris Match. Words faithful to what it has always been: frank, without concessions or filters. And this, even when it comes to talking about his more intimate life.

An assumed lifestyle choice
“Do not believe that my twenty years of career have been a long calm river. They cost me two marriages I think …” she launched a few days ago in an interview with Télé 7 jours. After a first marriage with Thomas Volpi which ended in separation in 2009, it was in the arms of Clément Misérez that Alessandra Sublet married in just marriage, until 2018. Together, they had two children, Charlie, born in 2012, and Alphonse, born in 2014. Originally from Lyon, Alessandra Sublet saw this divorce as an opportunity to get away from the capital: “When we separated with Clément and we talked about shared custody of our children, I realized that I had nothing to do in Paris. I am provincial at heart.”

From now on, it is in a house in the south of France that she spins more serene days. And if she lived an idyll with Jordan Deguen for some time, Alessandra Sublet today tastes the joys of a desired celibacy, since it is obviously still necessary to specify it nowadays. No, celibacy is not inevitable, regardless of age, social class or the number of divorces and marriages. And that, even Alessandra Sublet’s entourage seems to doubt it, as she confided to Paris Match: “I’ve been single for a year, my friends make faces when I tell them, but I have my kids, my buddies, a lot of work, and I often wonder where I would fit a man in the middle of it all.” Single for a year, Alessandra Sublet now enjoys chosen solitude: “I had a very nice first life together, only I had my dose! It’s already difficult to support yourself. So can Maybe I’ll remarry, but I won’t be living under the same roof as anyone else.”
Since she made the decision to leave Paris, the 45-year-old actress is regularly confronted with the judgments of her relatives, doubtful about her new life. Never mind, Alessandra Sublet is not the type to take offense: “They all take me for crazy because I had a space created to isolate myself, when it’s my house! J I’ve gained ten years since I’ve been here! This serenity is now more important than my professional future. For nothing in the world would I backtrack” she assures in the columns of Paris Match. But unfortunately, it’s not Alessandra Sublet’s only choice that has drawn criticism from others…
“I will never have a child again”
“Contrary to what some people think, I have not abandoned my children! I go back to see them,” she insisted in her interview with Paris Match. If she no longer lives in Paris, Alessandra Sublet goes back and forth between the South and the capital. Every other week to be with her children, who live with their dad. In 2021, the actress had, despite herself, raised real questions around the place of mothers in our societies. In explaining her choice to live away from her children, she had been at the center of strong criticism, all insidiously based on archaic and sexist precepts according to which a divorced mother must live under the same roof as her children. Conversely, a dad who does not live with his children will never be singled out so much. Obviously.
Faced with criticism, Alessandra Sublet was quick to respond in the columns of Le Parisien, in June 2021: “Fortunately I can choose my life, without worrying about the judgment of others! I go to see my children every other week, like a lot of divorced couples. I want them to stay in their house with their friends, their school.” The host had also reassured the scalded spirits: her children will not “be unhappy”, since it must apparently be specified to be entitled to the label of “good mother” generously attributed by an anonymous and puritanical mass. And Alessandra Sublet understood that it was better to go beyond all that: “It is clear at the dawn of 2022 when a woman says ‘I go to see my children every other week and I go to live elsewhere’, other women who call themselves feminists feel that she is abandoning them. I feel like I’ve moved on. Let’s leave these people in the Middle Ages.”
Asked about her new life by Paris Match, Alessandra Sublet confided in her role as a mother: “I will never have a child again. I have two, I adore them, but they are enough for me. I do not suffer my loneliness, on the contrary, I went to seek this freedom, it is priceless. I don’t care what other people think.” An important message, which proves, however, that there is still a long way to go before a woman’s life choices are no longer sacrificed on the altar of sexism.
