Betty Blue actress weds prisoner

Beatrice Dalle rose to fame in 1986's Betty Blue
French actress Beatrice Dalle, who shot to fame in cult 1986 movie Betty Blue, has married an inmate in a ceremony held in a Brittany prison.

Dalle, 40, wed the unidentified man on Monday at the Hermitage prison in Brest, local officials said.

The actress has struggled to match the success she enjoyed in Betty Blue, in which she played an unpredictable woman who descended into insanity.

She was previously married to French rap artist Joey Starr.

Dalle - whose real name is Beatrice Cabarrou - has been no stranger to the other side of the law.

She was arrested in 1991 in Paris for stealing jewels in a boutique and stuffing them down her thigh-length boots.

And a 1996 conviction for cocaine and heroin possession in France was removed from the records so she could continue to work in the US.

In 1999, she was arrested in Miami for cocaine and heroin possession and was fined for assaulting a Paris traffic warden in 2000.
