The average vote is very high! All five vowels are in her name!

She can pull off said height, I doubt she is taller though!

@ Ian C - What a thought-provoking comment! 🤓👍
Charlotte gets 5ft7.5! I expressed my surprise, having thought she was around 5ft6 at the most, in my original comment on her, from October 2016!

No, no, HonestSlovene, Jewish is not a nationality. Even as an ethnicity, Jewishness is a ill-defined, as there are Sephardic and Ashkenazi Jews, who are quite different. But nobody is saying that Woody Allen, for example, is half American and half Jewish.
As for Gainsbourg, it looks suspiciously that she is English, although she doesn't really have that Julie Andrews vibe that you might associate with Englishwomen.
A better question is, is Charlotte Gainsbourg a beautiful or a plain woman? I could argue both sides on that one.

Serge Gainsbourg was born in France, from Russian refugees indeed. He wrote and sang in french, lived in Paris all his life and smoked Gitanes ... You can't be frenchier. (Charlotte was born in London, by the way. you got that wrong too,Roger)
Are you french, Roger ? What did you contribute to your country, compared to the Gainsbourg family ?
Oh, and from meeting her IRL, I would say Charlotte is closer to 175 cm.

Half-French, seriously??? You mean from her so-called "Serge Gainsbourg" father who was actually born "Lucien Ginsburg" and was nothing else but the son of Ukrainian Jews who fled to Paris after the 1917 Russian Revolution ? (look it up !). Please, there is nothing French about her except being born in France and she would be just as Chinese if she had been born in China.

This actress is certainly someone who has the capacity to shock in a none-too-nice way and I didn't know whether to like her or not until I read an interview. With two extremely famous parents, Jane Birkin and Serg Gainsbourg, it is clear where she inherits her attitudes. Her father was incredibly free-spirited!
I never thought she was as tall as this though. I would have said 5ft6 and not a speck more!
My conclusion after reading her interview was that I admired her. She is a clever and very strong willed person and she acts in what she darn well wants to act in and does it (shockingly!) well, even if it does leave her open to criticism.

Half French means half communist :)

We know that some models and actresses add some inches to their height, which is not the case here. To be very honest, she looks even taller that what she admits.

She is half-French. Maybe you could add that to the description.
