Actress Irina Bezrukova said that the director suggested to her for the role.
At 23, the future star of Russian cinema became pregnant from her first husband, Igor Livanov. At the same time, she received a tempting offer – a role that would give a good start to her career. Then Irina Bezrukova faced a difficult choice between motherhood and work.
Being in a position, Bezrukova came to Mosfilm, where screen tests were taking place. The director, whose name Irina does not voice, was satisfied with her acting data and had already been approved for the role.
“The director asked if I was ready to have a short haircut and dye my hair white, to which I agreed. He said that shooting in the summer, I fit. Here I, as a well-mannered young lady, admitted that I was pregnant, and I needed to be shot in close-up, because in the summer the belly would already be noticeable. The director asked me: “Are you sure you are pregnant? I’m sorry because you are the right fit for this role. But if you suddenly make a decision, then I’m ready to shoot you. ” I was 23, this was my first movie proposal …“- the 55-year-old actress opened up on the program” The Fate of a Man “with Boris Korchevnikov on the channel” Russia 1 “.
At that moment, Bezrukova had no doubts: to give birth or have an abortion – she definitely decided for herself that she would not exchange a child for a career and success.
“Any other actress will gladly play this movie for me, and no one will give birth to a son for me, ”- that is how I told Igor (Livanov, – approx.“ Z-ya.ru ”). This was one of the most correct decisions in my life. I would never commit this sin“She continued.
As a result, on December 6, 1989, the artist had a son, Andrei, who became her only child. Bezrukova also appeared in good roles, which brought her love and respect from the public.
