If Anny Duperey has no pain talking about his life, even when it comes to particularly difficult time, this time it is that of her daughter Sara Giraudeau, whom she told. And more precisely its school phobia. Invited in Media Culture on Europe 1, this Wednesday, February 17, the 73-year-old actress returned to this painful episode: “She started throwing up in front of the middle school gate and passed out in class.” Sara Giraudeau was then 14-15 years old, the age at which Anny Duperey had also suffered from this “school misfortune”. “We had to get her out of there”, she exclaims. A difficult moment in the adolescence of Sara Giraudeau, who had confided to having also suffered from many teasing during childhood, which ultimately ended well.
And it was a professor of philosophy who helped defeat the school phobia by Sara Giraudeau. While the one who brilliantly played Marina Loiseau in the series The Legends Office wanted to leave school at 16, Anny Duperey opposed it. “Listen darling, we’re not at the same time, we don’t have the same story”, she retorted, advising him to have his bac to avoid everything regret.

“School phobia can be treated”
The former wife of Bernard Giraudeau changes his daughter’s establishment and opts for a school outside the contract, located in apartments. “She met a wonderful philosophy teacher there, rejoices Anny Duperey, still proud of years after bac with honors of his daughter, and of his 17/20 in philosophy. School phobia can be treated, with slightly different ways of teaching.”
And it is the mother of a philosophy professor, played by Charlie Dupont, that Anny Duperey plays in the series Rousseau’s fault, which starts this February 17 on France 2. A formidable subject.
