Sick relationship

Born in Rouen on December 6, 1978, Arnaud Ducret quickly experienced the separation of his parents. A painful divorce for someone who was once a little boy and who felt “abandoned, for years”, as he confessed with emotion in the columns of Gala, in 2018.

For years, she secretly hoped to see this absent father again: “I waited for him to come, but he was always late.” The loss is such that growing up, tired of waiting for this father figure, Arnaud Ducret made a radical decision: “Sometimes, when I come home from the weekend, I cry and tell my mother no I wanted to go. his house. And then, when I made up my mind, about 16, I didn’t see him anymore. I didn’t want to.”

The situation lasts for many years, where father and son sometimes try to find each other … in vain. The gap widens, time destroys the links. “Many things are wrong in his private life so that he can take children” the actor estimated years ago. In 2018, while participating in the program “Cap Horn” on M6, Arnaud Ducret returned with the emotion of this painful relationship: “My father was absent a lot when I was young. I did not see him for a long time. I don’t want to see him anymore.” He had to wait until he was an adult to see this father without much: “I saw him again later when I started to develop professionally. We talked a lot and that … now I’m proud of him because he’s worked hard on him. We can’t make up time but we’ve experienced things like the 24 hours of Le Mans.”

But from this family history, Arnaud Ducret got good things from it.
