On January 19, his premature death, at only 37 years old, following a skiing accident had aroused a wave of emotion in the world of French cinema. Since then, those close to Gaspard Ulliel had opted for discretion, aligning themselves with that which presided over the relations that the actor himself had with the media. Tuesday, May 10, his former companion Gaëlle Pietri came out of her silence to pay tribute to the father of her child Orso, born in 2016. On Instagram, the Corsican model unveiled a black and white photograph of the comedian of A long Sunday engagement and their son in a body of water, as spotted by Paris Match.
The photo is accompanied by a long caption, which begins philosophically: “The acts of our lives are open to interpretation. The criticism that can be made of it allows us to orient our attitudes and our decisions. The content of criticism from our accomplished acts encourages us to carry the future with a view to a harmony that knows how to keep conflict and its sources at bay. This is how Gaspard and I have led our lives. »
In the rest of the text, Gaëlle Pietri attacks the rumors of which Gaspard Ulliel has been the target since his disappearance. She confirms their separation and denies the idyll announced by the press between the comedian and the Luxembourg actress Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread): “No one shared Gaspard’s life at the time of the tragedy. It is therefore incumbent on us with Gaspard’s parents to protect his memory as well as the future of Orso. I respect the dignity of the beings who, near or far, met and accompanied Gaspard during his life. »
In conclusion of his digital missive, the mother of Orso sends thanks to the professionals of the seventh art, as to the strangers who wanted to express their support. His last lines are for his former love: “I thank Gaspard for the intelligence he has given to his actions and his career. It is all this that I support and that we have to preserve in a common dignity. »
