Sylvia Kristel
The Economist - over 4 years
SLOWLY, she slid out of her silk dressing gown. She approached the dressing table, slipped into the rattan chair. Naked, she looked herself over in the glass. Her hair was short, androgynous. Her nose was slightly turned up at the end, like a doll’s. Her lips were open, the bottom lip fleshy, as if about to be kissed. It seemed to tremble.Her eyes were the part of herself she knew best. Their colour was indefinite, grey-green, changeable. Sometimes they took on a misty pastel tone. Today she wanted them to burn, beckon. Taking up a stick of kohl, she outlined them thickly with black. With a wide, loaded brush, she heaped dark shadow over the lids.So Sylvia Kristel became Emmanuelle: the young woman who in 1974, wearing only long pearls and a feather boa, invited cinema audiences the world over to watch her explore les dernières limites de l’erotisme. She found them on a squash court, in a jet plane, under a waterfall. She made love with men and women too, on beaches and under ...

    On 12 June 2012, she suffered a stroke and was hospitalized in critical condition.
    More Details Hide Details Four months later, she died in her sleep at age 60 from esophageal and lung cancer. She was survived by her son, Arthur Claus, and her younger sister, Marianne. Sylvia Kristel is buried at her place of birth in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
  • 2006
    Age 53
    Interviewed in 2006 for the documentary Hunting Emmanuelle, she describes how, due to an expensive cocaine addiction, she made a number of poor decisions, including selling her interest in Private Lessons to her agent for $150,000; the film grossed more than $26 million domestically.
    More Details Hide Details After McShane, she married twice, first to an American businessman. That marriage ended after five months, and she later married film producer Phillippe Blot. She spent a decade with Belgian radio producer Fred De Vree, until his death. A heavy smoker of unfiltered cigarettes from the age of 11, Kristel was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2001 and underwent three courses of chemotherapy and surgery after the disease spread to her lungs.
    In September 2006, Kristel's autobiography Nue (Nude) was published in France.
    More Details Hide Details It was translated into English as Undressing Emmanuelle: A Memoir, by Fourth Estate, 2 July 2007 (ISBN 978-0007256952), in which she told of a turbulent personal life blighted by addictions to drugs, alcohol, and her quest for a father figure, which resulted in some destructive relationships with older men. The book received some positive reviews. Her first major relationship was with Belgian author Hugo Claus, more than two decades her senior, with whom she had her only child, a son, Arthur (born 1975). She left her husband for British actor Ian McShane, whom she had met on the set of the film The Fifth Musketeer (1979). They moved in together in Los Angeles where he had promised to help her launch her American career. However their five-year affair led to no significant career break for Kristel but a relationship she describes in her autobiography as "awful he was witty and charming but we were too much alike." About two years into the relationship she began using cocaine. This proved her downfall, although at the time she thought of it as a "supervitamin, a very fashionable substance, without danger, but expensive, far more exciting than drowning in alcohol a fuel necessary to stay in the swing." She also says she was pregnant with McShane's child, but lost the child when she fell.
    In May 2006, Kristel received an award at the Tribeca Film Festival, New York for directing the animated short film Topor and Me, written by Ruud Den Dryver.
    More Details Hide Details The award was presented by Gayle King. After a hiatus of eight years, she acted in the film, Two Sunny Days (2010), and that same year in her last acting role, she played Eva de Leeuw in the TV series The Swing Girls.

  • 1974
    Age 21
    Kristel gained international attention in 1974 for playing the title character in the softcore film Emmanuelle, which remains one of the most successful French films ever produced.
    More Details Hide Details After the success of Emmanuelle, she often played roles that capitalised on that sexually provocative image, most notably starring in an adaptation of Lady Chatterley's Lover (1981), and a nudity-filled biopic of the World War I spy in Mata Hari (1985). Her Emmanuelle image followed her to the United States, where she played Nicole Mallow, a maid who seduces a teenage boy, in the sex comedy Private Lessons (1981). Another mainstream American film appearance was a brief comic turn in the Get Smart revival film The Nude Bomb in 1980.
