Life and careerEdit
Jobert was born in Algiers, Algeria, to a Sephardic Jewish and Pied-Noir family, the daughter of Eliane Azulay and Charles Jobert, who served in the French Air Force. She came to Metropolitan France when aged eight.
Jobert debuted as an actress on stage and television. In 1968, she achieved stardom by playing starring roles in the successful comedies Faut pas prendre les enfants du bon Dieu pour des canards sauvages and L'Astragale. She co-starred with Charles Bronson in Rider on the Rain and with Jean-Paul Belmondo in The Married Couple of the Year Two. During the 1970s, Jobert was one of France's popular movie actresses. But during the next decade, she gradually withdrew from film work and concentrated on a new career in children's literature. She is the author and/or narrator of (mainly children's) audio books. She also has written a series of books which cautiously lead on to the appreciation of classical music, e.g. of Mozart, Chopin, and Tchaikovsky.
Jobert and spouse, Swedish dental surgeon Dr Walter Green, have twin daughters: Eva Green, who is also an actress, and Joy Green, who is a horse breeder in Italy. Her niece Joséphine Jobert is an actress known for the television show Death in Paradise.
