“Love … screeches!” Louise Latraverse’s spontaneous cry from the heart at the end of the show Live from the New Year’s universe, on December 31, sparked laughter in the studio and resonated loudly in cottages and on the internet. So much so that you can now wear it with you!
Host France Beaudoin asked his four guests, Pierre Hébert, Mélissa Bédard, Simon Boulerice and Louise Latraverse, to take turns expressing what, according to them, COVID-19 “will not come to the end”.
The answers burst forth: music, “fun”, the desire to do shows, to get together and to create … and “Love … crisse!”. This one was from Louise Latraverse, 80, who was watching the end-of-year radio-Canadian meeting with her good friend Monique Giroux.
Twitter, Facebook and Instagram immediately got excited about the response. The imagination of the Latraverse-Giroux tandem also, by noting the enthusiasm for the little phrase so simple, but so significant and liberating. The idea of the t-shirt marked with the two words “Love crunches” sprang up instantly.
Result: for a few days now abound on the web photos of artists sporting long or short-sleeved kids’ hoodies or black hooded sweatshirts proudly displaying a “Love crunches” in white letters, with the name of the author of the quote . The clothes were designed by the Quebec company Petite Gazelle and can be purchased now.
“I am a crowning woman, openly launches Louise Latraverse in an interview. I have always sacred a lot, and I have always encouraged people to sacred. Me, I find it beautiful, the coronations. When I was young, only guys were allowed to crown. Once, I came to a rehearsal with Janine Sutto and Denise Filiatrault. I was 19, and I could hear them screaming, “Hey, squeal!” or “Hey, hug!” I told myself that I belonged to that world. So I started to consecrate at the age of 19, and I continue! (laughs) It’s beautiful, it’s liberating. We are the only country in the world to have coronations linked to religion … “
When we chatted with Louise Latraverse on Wednesday morning, she was preparing to watch Joe Biden’s inauguration ceremony on television, happy to know that Donald Trump had left the White House a few hours earlier.
“So much the better, squeal, and he doesn’t come back!”
In this pandemic year, the serene actress is taking advantage of the passage of time. “At the moment, I’m not doing much. I walk, I read, I write, I draw … “She never misses an edition ofLive from the universe, her favorite show, and reiterates her great affection for her friend France Beaudoin, whom she describes as exceptional.
And don’t tell him the pandemic doesn’t exist; she, who has read extensively on the subject for a year, will nail your beak in two or three learned acquaintances.
Professionally, Louise Latraverse still wants to play, without working “in crazy schedules, with a lot of lyrics.” One of her last screen appearances was in the movie My circus to me, which premiered last summer, and now available on VOD. Incessantly she must turn in We, series set in motion by producer Anne Boyer (Duo Productions) and author Dominick Parenteau-Lebeuf, and intended for one of the Quebecor Content platforms.
“I’m doing my first role as a grandmother! It won’t be too tiring. I don’t want to be stressed out and burn out. That doesn’t tempt me anymore. I’m not thinking of playing again in the theater, for example. Even if you never know … But I would do cinema again anytime, because in the cinema, we have time. “
A young lover
His 80 springs do not weigh him down.
“It’s just a number,” she argues with conviction. We must stop thinking in those terms. There is nothing difficult. We live, so much the better if we live long, and we die. I don’t stop at these things. I am in good health, surrounded by lots of young people, I am interested in a thousand things. The important thing is to keep interesting contacts, to stay busy and to find a style. ”
“Every decade, there is always something great. At 20, I couldn’t wait, at 30, 40, 50 too … And at 80, I still have beautiful things to discover, that I did not know. For example, I detach myself more. I have never been happier than now! Life is good, life is rich. I find everything beautiful. “Love, squeal!”, It’s true, what I’m saying … “
Louise Latraverse is not in love. For the moment.
“But I would like that! I just believe in love. I would have to find a boyfriend. But it’s still easy, when you can’t go out … (laughs) I’m going to find myself a younger man! I’m not going to take an 80’s old one; men, at 80 years old, are not as “flashy” as women, I think! A young lover is so good … “
