Juliette Binoche given a replacement Oscar


During an interview with Graham Norton, Juliette Binoche has revealed she had to have her Oscar award replaced because her son damaged the gold covering on the statuette.

The actress won the prestigious award for best supporting actress for her role in The English Patient, but it had to be replaced.

Binoche said: “My son was playing with it and all the gold was peeling off; the naked Oscar was getting even more naked. It was a very dull and grey color behind the gold. They replaced it of course but I had to return the old one. I would have liked to keep it – it was cute. My son hasn’t touched the new one!”
