Actress Anna Yakunina admitted how she survived difficult times.
Anna studied at the Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet in her youth. The future TV star dreamed of becoming a ballerina, but changed her plans and chose a career in cinema and theater. Yakunina ended up in the Satyricon Theater. In her first marriage, with actor Alexei Stegailov, she gave birth to a daughter, Anastasia. The young family was left practically without means of subsistence, and then the actress found an unusual way of earning money. The star remembered her dancing past and began performing in nightclubs. Yakunina assured that she simply had no choice.
“Yes, but what is it? There was still such a time – the 90s. The clubs opened and the nightlife began. I was already an artist of the Satyricon Theater. My job was not just to come and do a striptease. We had a show, dance numbers in the theater, and we came to nightclubs with that. We offered our rooms and this made money. We had to survive, everyone did it. Sergey calmly let me go, he himself would like to earn the same, but he could not“, Anna explained.
Yakunina is married to an engineer named Alexey. The couple have a common daughter, Maria. The star assured that she and Maxim are connected exclusively by friendship. Nevertheless, the TV personality is making some joint plans for the future.
“Nobody knows me as an artist as well as he does. I asked him to stage a play for me. I have a dream, I want to play. I told him: “Only you will put it, because, like you, no one knows me.” He promised“, – said Anna on the air of the program” The Fate of a Man “.
