Véronique Jannot: “The stupidity of journalists”
Wishing to preserve her reputation as a young actress with growing success, Véronique Jannot played the discretion card when she learned of the doctors’ diagnosis. The actress has therefore made no public statement about her uterine cancer. “It was complicated… because when you are sick, and obviously not from the flu, at the insurance level, first of all it is a problem”she explained in front of the cameras of France 2. A thoughtful choice on the part of the former companion of Laurent Voulzy that she fully assumes today. It was all about protecting yourself. “It was the image of youth, of beauty, of someone who has no problems… All of a sudden, knowing that there was a little crab lying around, it was not ideal”she said.
Although discreet about her illness, Véronique Jannot had to face one of the most difficult ordeals during her fight against cancer. At this delicate time, the actress remembers being annoyed by persistent behavior on the part of certain journalists. They kept questioning her about why she didn’t have a child yet. A question that visibly came up regularly on the table and which greatly affected the actress during her uterine cancer. “The stupidity of journalists”, she summarizes. And to add: “That’s what came up all the time and was painful”. As the rumors swirled, the actress was pleasantly surprised by the words of an anonymous woman who had come to her defense about motherhood.
