Natalia Selezneva was remembered by the viewer as Lidochka from Leonid Gaidai's film "Operation Y" and Shurik's Other Adventures. How was the fate of the famous actress, why did she take her husband away from the family and how is she paying for the sins of her youth now?
Youth and acquaintance with the future husband
Little Natalya, at the age of 8, performed her first film role: she played Sasha in the Soviet black-and-white film "Alyosha Ptitsyn develops character." Moreover, the girl starred not in the episode, but in a rather significant role.
After her debut role, Natasha starred in 2 more films before real fame came to her. The girl successfully passed the casting and played Lida in the famous comedy Operation Y and Shurik's Other Adventures. She was 20 years old at the time.
Already 2 years later, in 1968, on the set of the film "Caliph-Stork", Selezneva truly fell in love with her colleague, Vladimir Andreev. The girl was not stopped by the fact that the actor is married. She did not even think about it, because she could not imagine life without this man.
37-year-old Vladimir also became interested in the young actress. The hobby was so serious that he divorced his wife, with whom he was officially married for only a month, and married Selezneva in the same year.
The new marriage turned out to be strong and happy. Natalia and Vladimir lived in perfect harmony for 52 years, until the actor died in 2020. During this time, their son Yegor was born, who later "gave" his parents three grandchildren.
Payback for sins
As Natalia herself says, she had to pay for her sins in full.
In 90, at the age of 45, Selezneva began to have serious problems with the thyroid gland. The woman underwent surgery, but her voice disappeared due to damaged ligaments. At this time, the actress was preparing to dub the film and played in an entertaining performance. Both directors, without negotiating, refused to accept other people and waited for Selezneva to recover. This gave the woman strength and she was able to cope with her illness.
In 2014, Natalia injured her thigh neck. Several operations did not help the woman to fully restore her previous activity. For 6 years, the actress has not acted in films at all, although proposals from directors are still received.
Later, on the program "The Fate of a Man", Natalya admitted that she thinks a lot about her act of youth. She did not understand that she was doing wrong by destroying the family. But he and Vladimir really turned out to be halves of a single whole, and lived in a happy marriage for half a century.
How he lives now
In 2020, Natalia buried her beloved husband, who died at the age of 90. A woman often lives in a country house, where she grows flowers and enjoys nature. In addition, she is fond of football (she is a fan of CSKA).
Loneliness brightens up the son and grandchildren, who often visit their grandmother. Natalia is one of those celebrities who does not welcome plastic and grows old naturally.
