April 9 marks the '61 movie stars of the early 1990-ies., Honored Artist of Russia Elena Kondulajnen. She became one of the first Soviet actresses who were not afraid to bare all in front of the camera, because of which earned the title of the most desirable women of the USSR and Russian Marilyn Monroe. Why Beauty dreamed about millions of men suffering from loneliness, she found solace in alcohol and even thought about to kill himself, - later in the review.
Her real name - Lembi Ttuttu Vilho Kontulaynen, but since childhood she was called Lena. She was born in a family of ethnic Finns April 9, 1958, in the village Toksovo Leningrad region. Since childhood, Elena differed wayward character - Pioneer tie was not wearing, walking to school. She herself admits that since his youth had "heightened sensuality and eroticism", and with the beginning of 13 years to participate in pornographic photo shoots. According to her, she did not have no shame, no embarrassment - with a friend in the summer they sunbathed naked, without fear that they will see someone. At the same age, she wrote a poem in which the following lines: "I will sing an ode to sex - insanely enjoyable game." Later Kondulajnen said: "Why such written at such a young age, I do not know. But it has predetermined my life. "
From youth Elena sang well and had artistic abilities, and after graduation, she entered the Leningrad State Institute of Theater, Music and Cinematography by choral conductor specialty. Once one of the skits Kondulajnen came on the scene in the image of Marlene Dietrich, and teachers advised her to develop the talent of transformation and transfer to the theater department. Thus began her acting career.
Her film career began in 1979 with a role in the film "Journey to another city", and the wide popularity came to her in the middle of 1985 after she played in the film "Primary Russia". In the era of perestroika collapsed all prohibitions, and on the screens began to appear more and more films on the theme, which was previously covered extremely chaste. "In the Soviet Union there was no sex" - a phrase said by a Soviet television during a teleconference with the US, by the end of 1980. It has lost its relevance. Almost every movie, which came out while the screens were sex scenes, and relaxed, and incredibly sexy Kondulajnen became the main character of these paintings. So it has earned the title of the first Soviet sex symbol.
In spite of the first success in the cinema, in the late 1980s. in the life of the actress fell on hard times, as she later told me in an interview: "I was going through a black band: parents died, fell ill son ... With her husband divorced, the work was not, had nothing to live ... When my mother left life, I began to drink, although I do not abuse alcohol. Washed down, and after a divorce with her second husband, it lasted a whole year. Drank because of stress, to forget everything ... One day woke up and realized that I had two choices: die or leave Leningrad, where I was then living in Moscow. I got the role in the movie "One hundred days before the order," and talking about me. I became the first Russian actresses, who are not afraid to bare completely on the screen. I love to shock, it's a fine game, which is owned by a unit ... In fact, "the title of" sex symbol, I received after this film. He called the audience a real shock ... To be honest, I am so tired of this image, that for a long time did not communicate with journalists, lived in hiding. And now, when he saw me in the role of a dramatic actress, viewers get annoyed, because I expect the outrageous ... ".
After the film came to her real popularity, and by the directors received a lot of new proposals. It is not always professional - screen image of the actress played with it a cruel joke: often she was invited for an interview on the pretext of discussing a new script, but instead it again and again had to fend off harassment. The newspapers came out of her article titled "Erotic symbol of Russia", "Muse Eros superrabotosposobnostyu" and friends joked: "Forever and always cheerful naked Kondulajnen".
In this case, the actress was not ashamed of his notoriety and the existing image and actively continued to operate it, even placing in the early 1990s. Party of Love, which became members of many actors. And about his "title", she said: "When I was called a sex symbol, decided that if I was a good actress, I'll play this role well. Only the concept of "sex symbol" we interpret incorrectly. This does not mean that life actress pulls in bed all of its partners. She just on the screen feminine, charming, sexy. "
In the second half of the 1990s. Kondulajnen little shot in the movie, but acted on the stage of "Moon." Her film career was resumed in the mid-2000s., Mostly these were roles in serials. She continues to appear to this day, at this point in her filmography of more than 50 works. In addition, she tried her hand as a singer, and in 2005 released the album "Lonely wolf".
In the first beauty of the 1990s. It has always been a lot of fans. 4 times it is officially married, apart from this, it attributed a lot of novels. She had two children, but none of her marriage did not last long. In the end, Elena Kondulajnen left alone. 5 years ago, she admitted that she still is very popular among men, but to find their man she did not succeed, "This is some terrible piercing pain, a wild feeling of loneliness, despite the fact that you are surrounded by crowds of people. Often I fall into despair because I could never find a kindred spirit. Maybe I should not destined to personal happiness, I must suffer and cry, to all this state in poetry, plays, scripts, songs. This proportion. A people's love - that's fine, but it is ephemeral, not warm the soul. "
And in 60 years, the actress has continued to participate in a candid photoshoot and share these photos on social networks. She explains: "I feel myself young! Therefore, and sometimes photographed naked, to prove to myself and others that I did hoo! And everyone thinks so think how old I am! "
