In the columns of the JDD, Yvan Attal returned to this role that brought him back to his own son, age 20, named Ben. “Of course I think of him. He is the same age as Rod and I recognize things, anger… “he says before adding” It was he, who lives by this time in England, which has helped me to learn my text. Ben had a way so spontaneous, it was confusing.” A new experience for the actor. “ If I identified myself at this point in the character of the piece, it is because I have felt myself at what point my son was completely called into question, “reeducated”. It is a test but it made me taller ” has entrusted Yvan Attal. Since 1991, the comedian shares the life of Charlotte Gainsbourg. Together they had three children : Ben, Alice and Joe, aged respectively 20, 15 and 6 years old.
