He was for a long time fan and practicing Equitation, as he loved riding horses.  At the age of 40 he stated his career as an actor, and bingo he was known all over Europe in no time. I was shy and a loner he said one time in an interview. Jean Rochefort attends the Conservatoire where he will have  Philippe Noiret, Jean-Pierre Marielle, Jean-Paul Belmondo and Annie Girardot as classmates.  He was drafted by the company Grenier-Hussenot. He was one of the most popular actor in France. Jean has left some 150 films that you can enjoy, some of them was cult films. His daughter Clémence announced the news today.
