Adele Haenel decided to break the silence. Seventeen years later, she accuses Christophe Ruggia who offered him his first role. She was only 13 years old. “It's not an unfortunate caress, but an almost 40-year-old adult man who finds himself alone in a room every Saturday with a young girl between the ages of 12 and 15 who tries to fiddle. He does not just try“says the actress on Mediapart.
On social networks, Adele Haenel immediately received the support of many actresses such as Julie Gayet or Marion Cotillard. They salute his courage. If the actress now 30 years old is now said to be ready to speak, it is thanks to the Metoo movement. But she does not want to complain. The Paris prosecutor finally decided to seize the case and opens an investigation for sexual assault on a minor of 15 years. For his part Christophe Ruggia denies these accusations. The filmmaker has already been deregistered by the Society of Film Directors (SRF).
