According to Fedor, his whole life is connected with the cinema. Today, he not only shoots, produces and plays himself, but also prepares a new generation of filmmakers.
Childhood and youth

In school years, Bondarchuk was known as a bully, but this did not stop him from finishing an art studio. For higher education, Fedor planned to enter MGIMO, but did not enter the competition, so he chose the directing department of VGIK, where he was enrolled in the workshop of Igor Talankin.
The course at which Bondarchuk Jr. studied subsequently gave Russian cinema famous artists such as Ivan Okhlobystin, Renata Litvinova, Alexander Bashirov. Studying at the university had to be interrupted due to military service. The young director completed his training as a graduate of the course of Yuri Ozerov. Debts on the subject “history of the CPSU” prevented Fedor from receiving a diploma on time.
Until now, the former model is spoken of as the main woman in the life of Fedor Bondarchuk. Their love story began when Svetlana was very young. After 25 years of marriage, the couple divorced, but retained friendship. Both the director and the businesswoman found new favorites.
Looking at this successful and stylish woman, it is difficult to believe that she was once notorious and insecure. Thanks to the work of the model, she believed in her own talents and realized that she was able to subdue any man. But a career on the podium soon faded into the background: the main priority for Svetlana was the creation of a family.
Next to Fedor Bondarchuk, she felt protected and happy. The couple raised two children and overcame more than one crisis of relations. But in 2016, the couple, whom others considered an example to follow, announced a divorce.
December 17, the businesswoman turns 51. Over the past years, a lot has changed in her life, but even today Svetlana Bondarchuk is in demand in the profession, she is happy as a mother and grandmother, and loved. How did she manage to go through a divorce with dignity and regain the second half?
Svetlana Rudskaya was born in Moscow in an intelligent family. Parents divorced early, but soon my mother got married again, and since then Svetlana has become used to saying that she has two fathers. In school years, the girl suffered from complexes: in high school, with a height of 176 centimeters, she was taller than many peers. A large role in the fate of the girl was played by her grandmother, who sent her to a model casting.
“I thought I was like here now and I’ll tell my grandmother that it didn’t work out. But then the lady, who was selecting models, pulled me out of the crowd. I thought that maybe it’s not so bad. Then I worked as a photo model and a model, I won’t say for a long time, but I learned the origins of this business, ”said the celebrity in the program“ The Fate of Man ”.
The world of catwalks and show business often negatively affects people, but this did not threaten Svetlana: she did not focus on the career of a fashion model.
The model really had a lot of hobbies: she was professionally engaged in fencing, parachuting. At the same time, Svetlana studied well, and after school she graduated from the library department of the Institute of Culture.
Everyone who knew the girl called her a style icon. It is not surprising that Bondarchuk’s career as a host started with the Fashion Vaccination and Dress Her Friend shows. Svetlana also acted as chairman of the jury of the TV contest “You are a supermodel”.
With a wide range of interests, Bondarchuk became known as a journalist, editor-in-chief of a major publication, owner of a PR agency and organizer of social parties and events in the capital. “I am very glad that I am a sought-after person, but this is a lot of work,” said the celebrity.
Svetlana was 16 when she met Fedor Bondarchuk visiting a classmate. They did not immediately plunge into the relationship, but sympathy arose from the first second. “He was not bohemian. Cute, cheerful, with a good sense of humor. I saw and thought that he would be my husband, ”the businesswoman shared.
They were called Romeo and Juliet. And although there were no Shakespearean conflicts between the parents of the lovers, Svetlana was timid before meeting the Bondarchuk. She believed that they did not take her, tall blonde, seriously. But when Sergey Bondarchuk and Irina Skobtseva recognized the girl better, they gladly accepted her into the family.
Lovers met for a long time before they decided to come together. Everywhere appeared together, the director even removed the chosen one in his short film “A Midsummer Night's Dream”. The couple was in no hurry to marry: the marriage was registered after the birth of their son Sergei.
After six and a half years, the couple had a daughter, Varvara. The girl was born prematurely, because of which there were some difficulties in her development. “She is very cheerful, bright. There is no drama, she is a special child, but she is in absolute love, an amazing girl. You could start to suffer, there were certain problems, but this story rallied us. She showed that Fedor is a caring and amazing person, ”explained Bondarchuk.
Parents protected their daughter from excessive public attention. Now Barbara is 20, she lives abroad, where it is easier for her to take a rehabilitation course, visit specialists and study. Sister is often visited by Sergey Bondarchuk, who became the continuer of the acting and directing dynasty.
In 2012, Sergei married Tatiana, daughter of Olympic champion Mikhail Mamiashvili. The couple gave Svetlana Bondarchuk two granddaughters: Margarita and Vera. The star family was growing, but the marriage of Sveta and Fedor was destined to collapse.
The couple Bondarchuk survived a lot together. Over the 25 years of marriage, they have repeatedly managed to cope with crises. But in 2016, this love story came to an end. Fans suspected that everything happened due to the appearance in the life of Fedor Sergeyevich, the rising star Paulina Andreeva, but Svetlana Bondarchuk denied the rumors.
“Nobody left us for someone’s sake, just there was a crisis in relations, a peak, from which we could not get out. Each of us has new relationships only after a while. This is important to understand, because Fedor was condemned for this, his girlfriend, too, the businesswoman emphasized.
Svetlana managed to maintain friendship with her ex-husband, he remained a welcome guest in her house. But the chosen one of the director Paulina reacted to the situation differently.
As a media personality, the businesswoman understood that those around her would continue to exaggerate the topic of her break with her husband. The most difficult thing for Svetlana was to go out alone, but over time she realized that she had to open up to the world and honestly tell about what had happened.
“We will remain close friends forever, I really want this. Life after the divorce has become interesting. New experience, I do not like such grandiloquent words as "status". This is a different life, restructuring. I’m generally a very family man, but I got freedom because the children grew up, a lot of working interests arose, ”said Bondarchuk.
Friends and acquaintances helped Svetlana turn the page, captivating her with new creative projects. Mother and son supported, although at first it was difficult for him to come to terms with the news of the separation of parents. “There is an erroneous opinion: it seems that the children will grow up, and it will be easier for them to explain everything. But children always remain children, and Seryozha was difficult. Time decides everything, ”said the star.
Svetlana was absolutely right in declaring that life after a divorce does not end. As you know, Fedor Bondarchuk met Paulina Andreeva for three years, and in September married her. But the businesswoman was not left alone.
“If you have a relationship request, you will always find it. It’s difficult only if you don’t let go of the past. Around millions of people, everyone wants to be "paired." I always wanted to love and be loved, this is the destiny of a person, no work will block this, ”she explained.
But who became Svetlana's lover? At first, she was credited with novels with businessmen and actors. The celebrity joked that any friend who was seen with her at a party, acquired the status of a boyfriend in the media. And at the end of 2017, information appeared that Bondarchuk was meeting with photographer Sergey Tabunov.
The couple’s relationship ended a few months later, and last year, Bondarchuk began to notice with the company 44-year-old director of the design agency Sergey Kharchenko. They appeared together at exhibitions, performances, relaxed in Bali and in Turkey.
Fans were glad that the idol had found a new love, and talked about the imminent wedding of the couple. Last month, the chief editor of a glossy magazine published a photo on the microblog, in which subscribers saw a ring with a large stone on her finger. The provocative caption to the picture “To be or not to be” gave reason to think that Svetlana was pondering how to respond to her chosen one's marriage proposal.
“I feel that we are preparing dresses again,” commented the presenter, Yekaterina Mtsituridze.
Like many stars, Svetlana Bondarchuk adheres to the principle of “happiness loves silence”, so she does not comment on her romance and possible marriage. The main thing is that the businesswoman remains successful in the profession and in her personal life, and stamps in this case are not at all important.

Only a year and a half later, shortly before the demobilization, he got to the hospital and asked his girlfriend to bring a beautiful girl again, then a schoolgirl. He did this because of sheer boredom. They started a stormy romance, for which Svetlana skipped classes. In 1991, they got married. Fedor graduated from the institute and continued his career in film and television. Children appeared in the family. Relations between the spouses were very strong, from the outside they gave the impression of happy and contented people. Their couple was considered very stable and loving. But, not so simple.
Unfortunately, you cannot call him a faithful man: even when married, he was always surrounded by a large number of fans. One of the most scandalous cases in his life was a stormy romance with the singer Lika Star, in which he starred in the video. During the filming, the actor managed to fall in love with her. At first he promised the girl that he would divorce and would live with her, but he could not decide on this step. Then the singer, tired of chatter and promises, at a social event herself told the wife of her “boyfriend” the whole truth. He advised Svetlana to hide the suitcases in their house, until they disappeared with the owner.
Then there was an affair with a young student with whom they worked together on advertising. But the relationship did not last long. Next in line was Yanina Studilina, but the latter claims that it was purely platonic love and great friendship. Fedor himself called her his muse. Then there was a relationship with Oksana Fandera, who also deny both actors. They starred together several times already, often kissed in front of cameras. Their game was so convincing that the viewers believed, but they were never lovers. None of the fans believe this.
After filming the film "9 Companies", everyone said in unison that Bondarchuk had a new romance with Irina Rakhmanova. Eyewitnesses repeated that the girl’s eyes shone when meeting with the director and a film colleague who reciprocated. The heroes of this story did not admit to their relationship to each other.
These are only the most vivid novels, whether they were or not, but Fedor lost his family. In 2016, the starry and popular couple divorced. The couple decided to leave and each go their own way in order to preserve all the good that they experienced during 25 years of marriage. Despite the fact that their relationship from the side seemed very stable and lasted a long time, the Bondarchuk still severed them. Further life together was impossible, it was understood by Svetlana and Fedor. Today they are in excellent relations with each other. Fortunately for both, their personal lives have been adjusted, especially since two wonderful children have appeared in this union, for whom they should be an example for the rest of their lives.
Children of Fedor Bondarchuk
The actor has two children, a boy and a girl. The difference between the offspring is 10 years. The father loves his children very much and, despite being very busy, takes an active part in their lives.
The first son was born, he was named in honor of his grandfather - Sergei. By his character, he went to his father - he also hooliganized and did not study very well. The boy loved sports, was fond of boxing. The family profession "director", the son mastered in America. He also starred in various films, worked with his father in the movie "Stalingrad". Despite the fact that his father was strict with him, and sometimes even severe, the shooting made a tremendous impression on him. By the way, Sergey’s wife was always nearby and was also imbued with this magical voice-over atmosphere. It was after this collaboration that the relationship between father and son improved. He gave the ex-couple Bondarchuk two beautiful granddaughters, in whom the grandfather did not have a soul for himself.
Currently, there are rumors that young spouses are getting divorced, but they themselves have not confirmed this.
The daughter of Barbara was born a premature and very weak baby. At first, doctors actively fought for her life and won. But, the consequence was the diagnosis they made - autism. 13 years, Svetlana and Fedor managed to protect her daughter from public squabbles. It is not customary in the family to talk about the girl as a patient or to pronounce the conclusion made by doctors aloud. She is a cheerful and very affectionate child who captivates the people around her. Fortunately, Varvara was born in a family that is able to take care of her, give her love, give her the opportunity to receive treatment and education. At that time, the birth of a daughter strengthened the relationship of the spouses, who came together even more to protect such a special child.
After the divorce, the famous actor also actively continues to take part in her life. He himself says that he spoils the girl very much with gifts. The father believes that his daughter is an infinitely bright person. When everything does not work out in his life, as he would like, and the mood is worse than nowhere, he comes to the girl and she charges him with her positive energy. In the documentary about Fyodor Bondarchuk much was said about her, that she has a great memory, that she grasps new knowledge “on the fly”, and that Varya loves poetry and can endlessly tell them.
Relations with Paulina Andreeva
Today, Fedor Bondarchuk, finally, has established his personal life. He is happy living with his common-law spouse Paulina, whom he began dating even before her divorce from Svetlana. Few people know that the girl took on her stage name, according to her passport her name is Catherine. She works in the theater, actively acts in films, sings beautifully. Although, envious people say the opposite, it is her voice that fans hear in the film "The Thaw."
Having fallen in love with the girl, Fedor bought a luxurious apartment for them near Red Square, but he designed it for himself. Rumor has it that the actor and director claims that he had never been so happy in his life, did not even think that one could have such feelings for a woman. “I’m comfortable and easy with Paulina, we often laugh, joke and have fun,” says Fedor.
Vladimir Mashkov helped open the doors to the theater world, as well as to the world of cinema. It was there that Fedor saw the actress, and in negligee.
Many argue that it was she who caused the separation of one of the most stable couples. The difference between a man and a girl is exactly 20 years old, which does not prevent them from being happy. Although it is not known whether Andreeva will be in the position of legal wife in the near future or not.
