Life Story of Jean Seberg

Jean Dorothy Seberg was born in Marshalltown, Iowa, to Dorothy Arline (Benson), a substitute teacher, and Edward Waldemar Seberg, a pharmacist. Her father was of Swedish descent and her mother was of English and German ancestry.

One month before her eighteenth birthday, Jean landed the title role in Otto Preminger's Saint Joan (1957) after a much-publicized contest involving some 18,000 hopefuls. The failure of that film and the only moderate success of her next, Bonjour Tristesse (1958), combined to stall Seberg's career, until her role in Jean-Luc Godard's landmark feature, Breathless (1960), brought her renewed international attention. Seberg gave a memorable performance as a schizophrenic in the title role of Robert Rossen's Lilith (1964) opposite Warren Beatty and went on to appear in over 30 films in Hollywood and Europe.

In the late 1960s, Seberg became involved in anti-war politics and was the target of an undercover campaign by the FBI to discredit her because of her association with several members of the Black Panther party. She was found dead under mysterious circumstances in Paris in 1979.

Jean Seberg in Bonjour Tristesse (1958)

On every subsequent anniversary of her daughter Nina's death, Jean attempted suicide. In 1978, she somehow survived an attempt, throwing herself under a train on the Paris Metro.

Anne Bennent, Peter Kern, and Jean Seberg in Die Wildente (1976)

Her marriage to 24-years-older Russian novelist Romain Gary was tempestuous and profoundly unhappy due to his obsessive, Svengali-like influence on her. Separated in 1968 and divorced in 1970 after she bore Carlos Navarra's daughter, she committed suicide in 1979. Gary took his own life by gunshot the very next year; however, he stated in his suicide note that Jean's suicide had nothing to do with his.

Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg in Ausser Atem (1960)

Julie Andrews, Faye Dunaway, Mia Farrow, Diana Rigg and Tuesday Weld each turned down the role that went to Seberg in Paint Your Wagon (1969). (Kim Novak actually wanted to play it but was rejected.) Actresses considered for Seberg's role in Lilith (1964) included Yvette Mimieux, Natalie Wood, Samantha Eggar, Sarah Miles and Diane Cilento.

On May 31, 1979, she went through a form of marriage to 19-year-old Algerian playboy Ahmed Hasni. Reverend Thomas Duggan had officiated a "blessing" of the couple at the American Church in Paris, but the ceremony had no legal force because Seberg was still legally married to Dennis Berry.

Maurice Ronet and Jean Seberg in Vögel sterben in Peru (1968)

She had an affair with Clint Eastwood during the filming of Paint Your Wagon (1969) in Baker, Oregon. Unbeknownst to Seberg, the married Eastwood was simultaneously involved in a two-year affair with one of the movie's extras. He ghosted Jean once production moved to Paramount, leaving her traumatized.

Was a huge fan of Marlon Brando, since seeing his screen debut in the movie The Men (1950). As a teenager, Seberg wrote to Brando and invited him to stay with her parents in Iowa. She met him years later and Brando asked her to renew the invitation.

Was considered for one of the two female leads in Fahrenheit 451 (1966) before François Truffaut decided Julie Christie would play both parts as a dual role. Another role Seberg was considered for that ultimately went to Christie was that of Lara Antipova in Doctor Zhivago (1965).

Because they never divorced, Dennis Berry is technically Seberg's widower, not Ahmed Hasni.
