Since 2003, Mimie Mathy has lived a true fairy tale with Benoist Gérard. Between Mimie Mathy and Benoist, love at first sight was immediate. The two lovebirds met on stage, in Saint-Brieuc, in the Côtes d’Armor, while Mimie Mathy had gone there one night to present her show “Je papote avec vous”. “I immediately felt that something had happened,” the 63-year-old actress said on the set of “La Boîte à secrets” on France 3 last April. And obviously, Mimie Mathy’s entourage also noticed the attraction of the future couple. Valérie, the actress’s assistant, took care to write down the phone number of Benoist, the restaurateur chosen to prepare the food for Mimie’s team. Two days after meeting Benoist, Mimie Mathy took the initiative and decided to call whoever would say “yes” two years later.
“I was never in the right place”
If Mimie Mathy now has a perfect love with Benoist for 17 years, the actress has not always been happy in love. What he had also told in 2017 on the set of “Vivement Dimanche Prochain”. “I always took difficult situations. That is, when you throw yourself into the arms of a notorious homosexual. He was convinced that he was going to change it. You know a married man, that’s me. I arrive. You are convinced that he is going to leave his wife … I was always in addition to or with her, but I was never in the right place. Until I met Benoist ”, had confided the heroine of Josephine.
