Yegor Konchalovsky admitted for the first time that he secretly married


Director Yegor Konchalovsky spoke about a secret wedding and a daughter who rides the subway.

Behind Yegor Konchalovsky is a whole film dynasty: father – director Andrei Konchalovsky, mother – actress Natalya Arinbasarova, uncle – Nikita Mikhalkov. However, he did not rely on his relatives, and when money was needed, he went and got a job. Before getting into show business, he worked as a concrete truck driver at a car factory, was a salesman in a radio engineering store, and only after that he found a vocation.

In his recent interview with StarHit, the director said: he tries to convey the same values ​​to his children. With the youngest son Timur, it’s not working out very well so far (on his 5th birthday, the boy asked for an ATV and immediately received it), but the eldest daughter Maria definitely does not belong to the “golden youth”.

Maria’s mother is actress Lyubov Tolkalina. With her, Konchalovsky was in a civil marriage for more than 20 years, in 2017 the couple broke up. The director’s daughter grew up independent, and Konchalovsky is very proud of this fact. When the girl was 19 years old, she got married and began to live with her husband separately from her parents.

Now she studies, works and provides for herself. According to the filmmaker, Maria does not allow herself any large expenses: for a happy everyday life, she only needs two things – a smartphone and a restaurant with good coffee next to her house. Maria prefers to move around the city by metro.

Maybe I’m flattering, but my daughter takes the subway. I just don’t force her to buy a Mercedes. I once asked Masha if she wanted to drive. Like, if you plan, then go to a serious school, then to an extreme driving school, and then we’ll think about it. But she is, as they say, METROsexual, she has a night life and a desire to have everything side by side, quickly. She needs a good smartphone and quality coffee within walking distance. There is also a category“, – said Konchalovsky.

Maria did not take the money of her parents even before marriage. The famous father offered her to fully pay for the wedding, but Konchalovskaya and her chosen one organized the ceremony with their honestly earned money.

But if Konchalovsky wanted to fork out for his daughter’s wedding, then he no longer did it for his own. Recently, after several years of marriage, he signed with Maria Leonova. Together they raise a son.

If not for the ring on the ring finger of Yegor Andreevich, no one would have known about this secret. The ceremony was held secretly and without much glamor. For the director, this marriage was the first official. “Yes, we signed up. Without any pumps, but with a restaurant“, – said Konchalovsky.

Not so much is known about the director’s wife: she is far from the star party, rarely appears at social events and works as a lawyer. They met in court.

I think that this is a very interesting profession – if I had not become a cinematographer, I would seriously consider the possibility of getting an education as a lawyer, a lawyer. But I don’t have the perseverance that Maria has, she can spend hours delving into work, studying. I can’t do this – I want to run, jump, do something else‘ adds the director.
