Sylvia Kristel 1952-2012Well, they do not make xxx stars like here any longer. Most people grown up in the 70ties, she was one of the first encounters of nakedness, not through actually seeing here movies but by glimpsing the VHS covers of here as Emmanuelle, in the local video rental store. She ruled in a time. When nudity was the new punk and explicit talk was the new black.
Sylvia KristelSylvia Kristel, who has died aged 60, starred in a series of notorious 1970s soft-porn films beginning with Emmanuelle (1974), which followed the sexual exploits of a bored young diplomat’s wife in the fleshpots of Thailand.Promoted under the slogan “X was never like this”, the film generated numerous profitable sequels and countless imitations, thanks to Sylvia Kristel’s erotic portrayal of the half-innocent, half sex-crazed Emmanuelle as she gambolled naked, joined the “mile-high club”, simulated oral sex, fumbled with other women and faked orgasm.Made when she was 22, the film became a sensation, with worldwide audiences estimated at some 650 million. In France it was the highest-grossing film of the decade and was screened at a cinema on the Champs-Elysées in Paris for an unbroken nine years.Sylvia Kristel also starred in a series of sequels — Emmanuelle 2 in 1975, Goodbye Emmanuelle in 1977 and Emmanuelle 4 in 1984. “I realised that the public had been deeply affected by Emmanuelle,” she declared, “and wanted to prolong their fantasy, to keep me within it, symbolic and naked, idealised and necessary.”But her career in sex films drew her down into a netherworld of moguls on the make, who cast her in a succession of even more tawdry pictures that sought to cash in on her reputation as a sex-kitten.Her autobiography, published in English as Undressing Emmanuelle (2007), also disclosed a turbulent personal life blighted by addictions to drugs and alcohol, and her search for a father figure which had resulted in several abusive relationships with older men.She had been scratching a living as a clerk to supplement her earnings as a struggling young actress when she was cast in the title role of the original Emmanuelle. The film was promoted by a photograph of Sylvia Kristel seated topless in a wicker chair, toying suggestively with a string of pearls. “At last,” ran the caption, “a film that won’t make you feel bad about feeling good.”In 1977, as she sought to reinvent her acting career in Hollywood, she began a turbulent four-year affair with the British actor Ian McShane, best-known as the cavalier antiques dealer Lovejoy in the successful television series, whom she met on the set of the film The Fifth Musketeer.The couple lived together in Los Angeles, where Sylvia Kristel took a cameo role as an air stewardess in Airport ’79. By then she had begun using cocaine, which she described as a “supervitamin, a very fashionable substance, without danger, but expensive, far more exciting than drowning in alcohol — a fuel necessary to stay in the swing”.But drugs and alcoholism, combined with management problems, eventually sent her career into terminal decline. When The Daily Telegraph writer Mick Brown interviewed her in 2007, she was living alone in a tiny flat above a café in Amsterdam, taking the occasional acting job to pay her bills. “The innocence has long since fled,” he noted, “but the ghost of beauty still haunts her face.”One of three children of wealthy Dutch parents, Sylvia Kristel was born in Utrecht on September 28 1952. She had a troubled childhood, and was haunted by the memory of catching her father, a successful hotelier, in bed with another woman. Her parents divorced when she was 14, and on completing her convent school education Sylvia took a series of dead-end office jobs, supplementing her wages by taking assignments as a photographic model.In the early 1970s she acted in a handful of mildly titillating films, and in 1973, encouraged by her mother, won the Miss TV Europe contest. The following year she was approached by the film producer Yves Rousset-Rouard, who had bought the rights to a 1950s novel called Emmanuelle. He cast her in the title role, and paid her $6,000.Having signed a three-picture contract, Sylvia Kristel negotiated a fee approaching $100,000 to star in the sequel, Emmanuelle, The Joys Of A Woman (better known as Emmanuelle 2), in the following year. She went on to make other films with Roger Vadim and Claude Chabrol, and co-starred with Gérard Depardieu in René La Canne (1976).But, as she recalled, people preferred seeing her naked, and she was repeatedly typecast in the role of seductress, notably as Constance Chatterley in an adaptation of Lady Chatterley’s Lover (1981) and in Mata Hari (1985), a film biography of the First World War spy, in which she played the title role. She appeared as Agent 34-26-34 in The Nude Bomb in 1980, and the following year played a housemaid who seduces a 15-year-old boy in the controversial sex comedy Private Lessons, one of the highest grossing independent films of 1981.In a television documentary, Hunting Emmanuelle, in 2006, she described how her expensive cocaine habit caused her to make several errors of judgment, including her decision on an impulse to sell her interest in Private Lessons to her agent for $150,000; the film went on to gross more than $26 million in the United States alone.When her Hollywood career fizzled out in the late 1980s, she returned to Europe and dabbled as an artist, exhibiting her work in Los Angeles, Brussels and Amsterdam. With her second husband, a paparazzo photographer and film producer, Phillipe Blot, she made a motorcycling film called The Arrogant, and another called Dracula’s Widow (both 1988), the proceeds of which helped to pay off Blot’s debts.To earn money for herself, she agreed to make a further Emmanuelle film, Emmanuel 7 (1993), this time cast as a business-suited brothel madam, in which all the sex scenes were performed by younger actors.A heavy smoker since the age of 11, Sylvia Kristel was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2001. Cancer was also detected in a lung the following year, but she was given the all-clear following an operation. In June this year she was taken to hospital in Amsterdam after suffering a stroke, which forced the postponement of further treatment, for cancer of the liver.Sylvia Kristel’s first marriage, which was brief, was to an American businessman. After her marriage to Phillippe Blot, she lived for 10 years with a Belgian radio producer, Freddy De Vree, who died in 2004.She is survived by a son from her relationship with Hugo Claus, a Belgian artist and writer 27 years her senior.A more recent Lover that have to play here part in the trials of captain Francesco Schettino the man who sank Costa Concordia is Domnica Cemortan.
