Since their meeting in 2008 on the set of the film a prophet by Jacques Audiard, Leila Bekhti and Tahar Rahim have never left each other. Interviewed by Paris Matchactress of the series The flame recalled her love at first sight for the lead actor, Malik El Djebena, while playing the role of Djamila. “I finally arrived, for only four days. Tahar understood that I was stressed and he was super caring towards me. (…) I noticed that we did not leave each other indifferent, but we were not in the mood for that. We took our time as if patiently embarking on a beautiful story that would be the ultimate“.
Two years later, Tahar won the César for Best Actor and she won the César for Best Female Hope in 2011 for All that shines. “I end by thanking my prince charming. Before you there was nothing my heart. I like you“, declared Leïla Bekhti while receiving her trophy during the ceremony. They married in 2010 and became parents to three children: Souleymane born in 2017, a baby girl whose first name is unknown in 2020 and a 3rd child in 2021 whose gender and first name are unknown this time.
Gathered during the 19th edition of the Marrakech International Film Festival, where Guillaume Canet could meet his ex Diane Kruger, sublime, and where Gad Elmaleh was also present, the couple appeared still very much in love on the stage of the Palais des Congress. Sexy in a leopard bustier, the gorgeous brunette paired it with a white shirt which brightened up her outfit, as well as a flared black skirt. For his part, Tahar Rahim – who is part of the jury for this festival – chose a tuxedo with a black bow tie. Very stylish, he had tamed his hair with gel and slicked it back. A smart vintage look that conquered the beautiful Leïla, whose look at her husband testified to the unconditional love she has for him.
