From her journalistic shudders as she wrote a fanzine with its girlfriends , at its price of i 2012 Interviewer of the Year , Anne-Sophie Lapix knew how to make herself indispensable for the French audiovisual landscape, a queen of the news capable of confronting politicians, with a sense of justice and truth.

In the columns of The Student, the journalist shares her passion born very early. 'J I was curious, I liked to write, I wanted to meet people and ask them questions... In CM2, we had a little diary with friends. It was lame but fun! “A first embryonic newspaper which will however bring it a few years later, presented the television news of France2.
With her pretty cool parents, 'real parents of the 1970s', as she points out to The Student , 'who did not take care of our duties', the young girl blossoms with a certain freedom of tone and choice of life. If her sister, passionate about music, has become a piano teacher, little Anne-Sophie very quickly knows that she will be a journalist. His adolescence unfolds with the same serenity: ' I had a fairly easy adolescence, she confides to the site Parentheses . My mother let me out pretty easily, but I didn't drink, I didn't smoke, I didn't do drugs... She trusted me early on and I didn't betray her trust. .'
From these years of classical dance, Anne-Sophie Lapix has retained the rigor of a regular practice. Very sporty, she sticks to a busy schedule: 'Tennis twice a week and yoga with a coach at my place on Saturdays.' A healthy mind in a healthy body for the PAF punchline.

Despite her busy schedule, the journalist has always applied herself to being a mother ' very present ', as she confided to TV 7 Days : 'So much so that my children still thought a year ago that I was a stay-at-home mother.' Mother of two boys, Esteban who will be 20 in June 2022, and another boy born in 2006 , she has always been able to reconcile her family life and her professional obligations.
If we know that she married the one who is now her husband, the publicist Arthur Sadoun, in 2008, much less is known about his past loves. Irrefutable proof however, the two children of Anne-Sophie Lapix, whom she evokes with great tenderness: 'I feel like I'm on my period at the same time, because they're two boys and I'm raising them alone, she confides in Parenthesis website . You have to hold them. And at the same time, it's very cool, very cuddly.'

After presenting Restricted zone , or It's up to you , the journalist who readily admits to being more comfortable dealing with politicians than artists, is at the helm of the political magazine Sunday+ . One of her highlights is still her blunt interview with Marine Le Pen, where she manhandles the president of the RN with very technical questions. Asked about the funding of her program in 2012, the candidate is struggling with the pugnacity of Anne-Sophie Lapix. 'I see that there is a calculation problem!', the stoic and determined journalist will repeat to him several times. A real moment of television, which will undoubtedly earn her the title of Interviewer of the Year in 2012.
The journalist may expose herself in front of the camera, she admits frankly that she does not have a sense of style. Interviewed by Madame Figaro , she then explained : ' Fashion is a phenomenon that surprises me, that I don't always understand and that destabilizes me. ' Finally, like all women, her eye is shaped by her encounters. ' But sometimes I can get caught up in it after noticing two or three people on the street with clothes I like. .'
So no fuss for this , who just opts for a style that reflects her image, simple and elegant. ' I like fitted clothes and chic basics: white or black shirt, black or white jacket, jeans, heels'. She may face the gaze of millions of French people, but there is no question of opting for crazy fashion proposals . ' I hate to stand out although I appreciate beautiful clothes , she further clarifies to Miss Figaro. Being dressed does not mean dressing up. I like to feel beautiful and comfortable in what I wear. '
Although she doesn't like to be noticed, there is a fashion accessory that is essential in her wardrobe: heels. But more for a practical reason than an aesthetic one, as she again points out to our colleagues from Madame Figaro. ' My husband is 1.97m tall! I love wearing heels and I could even dance for hours with heels on my feet. '
As she reveals in the columns of the magazine She , Anne-Sophie Lapix has a beauty tip whispered by makeup artists on set. 'The people who treated me always told me not to go in the sun. I go anyway, but protect myself with a high screen.' Difficult to resist the call of the UV rays of the Basque Country...
When it comes to sharing her favorites for these stylish colleagues, journalist Anne-Sophie Lapix answers bluntly: ' Claire Chazal, and Michel Denisot whose costumes are always perfectly adjusted.' Personalities who shine more for their sense of information ... than for their follow-up of trends!Source journaldesfemmes.fr
