Seldom would Jean-Luc Reichmann have trusted so much in his angioma. This physical peculiarity, he takes it when she is younger. And her parents believe in medicine and try to make it disappear. She remembers, in particular, a treatment that is as painful as it is ineffective.
The difficult childhood of Jean-Luc Reichmann
Everyone knows that children can be very bad. Due to his physical peculiarity, the young Jean-Luc Reichmann is an easy target for some comrades. We report this red spot, right in the middle of his face. A task that he has had since birth and that he would like not to have. Due to its physical difference, it does not take on this task. You have to see it disappear.
In the documentary broadcast by TF1, his mother recalls these moments when doctors tell him that the task will go away. Over time, it will be less vivid, less visible. But the years pass and the task remains. Aware that her son is suffering, her mother then seeks solutions. She hears of a treatment that might work. Jean-Luc Reichmann remembers him very well.
” My mother used to take me to the hospital to make him go away. I was put on dry ice, it hurt terribly and showed even more, with a scab. It was a horror. It was very violent. We did this three times and asked to stop“.
The traumas of Jean-Luc Reichmann
Human beings have this ability to remember certain words, certain actions. All the words heard about his task, recalls Jean-Luc Reichmann. Because those words hurt him. If his childhood wasn’t easy, it was in his teens that the one who is now a successful animator suffered enormously.
” The hardest part was adolescence. A girl told me that with my spot on her nose she could never go out with me. But if physically it wasn’t that, I realized that making people laugh brings people together a lot. It is perhaps thanks to this difference that I have made seduction my profession.“. In fact, the guest presents the 12 Blows of Midi without hiding his task. She is part of him. But in her early days, her task is made up. When he presents Les Z’amours on France 2, she therefore does not appear:
” After a year, I started erasing the foundation with my fingers. The producers wanted to make me the ideal son-in-law, I told them I didn’t recognize myself, it was not me. I was old enough to do my job“.
Jean-Luc Reichmann’s sister helps him carry out his task
While it indicates that he has begun to take on his task once he reaches adulthood, this psychological process of acceptance begins when he is still a teenager. He realizes, still very young, that his sister is deaf. As a result, he compares his situation with Marie Laure’s disability. ” They were peanuts compared to his deafness“, Considers the host, speaking of his angioma.
” I realized at the age of eleven that what I have, with my difference, a spot on my nose, is absolutely nothing compared to my sister’s handicap. She shaped my character“. The guest is also the first in the family to notice the deafness of his sister, who is nine years his junior. Marie-Laure is in fact 97% deaf due to a birth defect.
Today Marie-Laure is little present in her brother’s media life. If she has managed to live her life, work and start a family despite her handicap, she doesn’t feel comfortable talking in front of a camera.. But she agrees to do it for her brother, during the filming of the documentary. The opportunity for Jean-Luc Reichmann to wake up as he is the first TV presenter to ask for the programs he presents to be subtitled. He makes this request after realizing his sister doesn’t understand his shows of him. At the time, only the television news broadcasts had subtitles. Marie-Laure is certainly not very present in the media, but she has participated in changing the television.
