Olivier Minne: 'I was complaining too much'... His click in the USA

Olivier Minne left without any particular expectations. 'I didn't know anything about the United States, he remembered again. However, I believe that I had an important appointment with myself there. The Americans made me understand that I had nothing to expect from anyone if I didn't go looking for it in myself'. It was in California that he had a realization: ' When I arrived in Los Angeles, I was complaining a little too much. They presented me with a fait accompli: don't expect others to find the solution you have within you.' Does the star of France Télévisions feel French or American? ' America will always be there for me, he confides fondly. And yet, I feel deeply French there. Born in Belgium, Olivier Minne shares his life today between France and the United States. 'I have three countries of heart' , he confided.

Olivier Minne: a life of anonymity in the United States

If he likes living in America, it is also for anonymity. Olivier Minne confided to lead a more peaceful life. 'I don't know if it protects me, but when you put some distance with Paris, obviously you have a way of understanding things that is different, he estimated with Gala . (...) It allows me not to be too prisoner of what this profession can generate as traps or vanity. '



A happy life, but childless. Olivier Minne has not tasted the joys of fatherhood. But that's no regret. ' Children, I have plenty , everyone who has watched Fort Boyard for twenty years but without the responsibility of being their father!' , he already confided last July to Between us .
