After moving to the United States in 1990, she became an American citizen in 2001. They really raised me with a love of art, bringing me to museums and seeing things that a child wouldn't see at that age.
Julie Delpy was born in Paris to Albert Delpy, a theater director, and Marie Pillet, an actress in feature films and the avant-garde theater. On the stages of Paris, Delpy's parents were involved in underground theatre. I would see Ingmar Bergman movies when I was 9 and totally go for it.
