Berthe Cerny (31 January 1868 – 27 March 1940) was a French actress, known as an elegant blonde beauty. She had a brilliant career, interpreting both classical and contemporary roles. She had several affairs, including with the politicians Aristide Briand and Paul Reynaud , and had two illegitimate sons by other lovers. She joined the Comédie-Française in 1906 and became a sociétaire in 1909.

Hélène Lucie De Choudens was born on 31 January 1868 in Paris. [1] [2] At a very young age she was a student of Gustave Worms at the Conservatoire de Paris . She graduated in 1885 with a first prize in acting. [3] In 1886 she had a child, Jacques Robert de Choudens (1887–1915), by an unknown father. [1] She played under the stage name Berthe Cerny at the Théâtre de l'Odéon , then the Théâtre du Vaudeville , then other venues, and for twenty years pursued a brilliant career on the boulevards. She played notable roles in plays by Paul Hervieu , Marcel Prévost and Georges de Porto-Riche . [3]

In 1895 Alexandre Dumas, fils repeated the stale idea that actresses must be immoral, saying the "feverish work, the quest for feigned emotions, the thirst for applause, the joys of triumph ... raise their bodies to a temperature they must maintain in real life." Berthe Cerny was among those who contradicted him in the pages of Le Temps , saying that a well-behaved but talented actress could easily portray vice. [8]
