Personal Life

Juliette welcomed a son, Raphaël, with professional scuba diver André Halle on September 2, 1993, and a daughter, Hana, with actor Benoît Magimel on December 16, 1999. Binoche became a patron of Enfants d'Asie, a French Cambodian charity, in 1992 and is godmother to several Cambodian orphans; she also paid for the construction of a Battambang children's home. Juliette has been a supporter of Reporters Without Borders since 2000, and in 2002, she was involved in the organization's "Photos of Stars" campaign, in which dozens of French celebrities were given disposable cameras that were later auctioned off. Binoche attended a 2006 Reporters Without Borders demonstration in support of American journalist Jill Carroll and Iraqi journalists Marwan Khazaal and Reem Zeid, who had been kidnapped by gunmen in Baghdad. In 2010, Juliette spoke out about the plight of Iranian director Jafar Panahi, who had been incarcerated in a Tehran prison without being charged or convicted of anything. At a press conference calling for Panahi's release, Binoche read a letter in which she said that his detention was "unwarranted and intolerable." After Panahi was released on bail, it was said that Juliette's appeal was "very influential" in his release. At a 2019 Berlin International Film Festival press conference, Binoche spoke about producer Harvey Weinstein (who is a convicted sex offender as of February 2020), stating, "I never had problems with him, but I could see that he had problems. As a producer he was wonderful, most of the time. I think he was a great producer. That we shouldn't forget, even though it's been difficult for some directors and actors and especially actresses. I just want to say peace to his mind and let justice do what it needs to do."
