Personal life

Her mother is of Croatian descent, whereas her father is of Maghrebi Jewish descent.[1] · [2] Uninterested in school studies, she left high school and enrolled at the Conservatoire de Paris.

From 2007 to 2010, she dated the actor David Rousseau.[3] In 2011, she began a relationship with the young entrepreneur Arnaud Schneider. They separated in January 2017.[4] On June 9, 2017, she was seen during the French Open, with her new boyfriend, Alexis.[5][6] In July 2018, she announced on her Instagram that she was pregnant with her first child.[7]

Life and career

Berry made her first appearance on the screen at 8 years old in My Life Is Hell, a comedy directed, written and produced by her mother and co-starring her uncle, Richard Berry.

Berry has had several roles in films as a teenager who finds her salvation in music. As Lolita Cassard in Look at Me (2003), she was a girl crushed by the notoriety of her father, an author, while trying to get him to notice her singing talent. As Hannah Goldman in The first time I turned 20 (2004), she was the only girl in a traditionally all-male school jazz band in 1950s France.

Berry's most recent roles have been comedic, such as Once Upon a Time in the Oued and then Nos jours heureux (Our Happy Days), as well as in the upcoming The New Adventures of Cinderella.
