Who is Gillian Anderson’s Ex-Husband, Julian Ozanne?
Julian Ozanne was born on 30 November 1965, in Nairobi, Kenya – his zodiac sign is Scorpio and he is now 52 years old. He is best known as a producer and director who worked on projects such as “Here to Where” in 2002, “Giorgio Armani: A Man for All Seasons” in 2000, and besides that, is an ex-husband of the critically acclaimed actress Gillian Anderson, to whom he was married for a short period of time.
So just how rich is Julian Ozanne as of early 2018? According to authoritative sources, this producer and director has net worth of over $1 million, with his wealth being accumulated from his over two decades long career in the previously mentioned field, however, information regarding his assets, such as cars and houses hasn’t been disclosed.
Ethnicity and Early Life
When it comes to his ethnicity, Ozanne is Caucasian, but he spent his formative years in the palace of King Moshoehoe II of Lesotho, which is some of the rare details we have on his early life and childhood. He doesn’t share the information regarding his schooling but, due to the fact that he grew up with a royal family, the indication is that he received a good education.
Career as a Journalist
Despite being widely known as a director and producer, however, chronologically speaking, this multi-professional man began his career with the role of a journalist, and correspondent for “The London Financial Times”, and later on worked with British News Agencies, prior to choosing a different vocation.
Ozanne actually made his debut as a filmmaker in 1997, serving as the producer of an episode of “Panorama”, a BBC TV documentary series, and then began working on “This Is Not an Exit: The Fictional World of Bret Easton Ellis”, collaborating with actors such as Dechen Thurman, Rachel Weisz, Jason Bushman and Paul Blackthorne on the documentary series which focuses on the film business influenced by Bret Easton Ellis, who created a groundbreaking horror movie, still watched as of today – “American Psycho”, although initially it received mediocre reviews. In 2000, Julian directed yet another documentary movie, entitled “Giorgio Armani: A Man for All Seasons”, produced by Maximum Films and Greenlight Media, and which followed the story of the renowned fashion mogul, Giorgio Armani who made a name for himself through his talent which significantly influenced the fashion business.
Ozanne’s next project was on “Lara Croft: Lethal and Loaded”, a documentary biographical movie, which he made in collaboration with Emily Booth, Phil Chapman, Mark Donald and Toby Gard, which attracted a generally negative response and isn’t Ozanne’s best work, but eventually in 2002, he produced “Here to Where”, a critically acclaimed mockumentary, which follows the story of an American filmmaker who has the desire to make a movie about the story of Merhan “Alfred” Nasseri, a Iranian refugee who has been stranded in Charles de Gaulle airport since 1988 due to numerous strange and interesting events regarding his status.
Marriage With Gillian Anderson and Divorce
Ozanne has been married once, to worldwide renowned actress Gillian Anderson, best known for starring in long-running TV series “The X Files”. The couple dated for some time in the early 2000s, which allowed them to grow closer and build a bond between them, which resulted in their marriage, which took place on 29 December 2004 on Lamu’s Shella Island, off the Kenyan coast, and Gillian’s daughter, who was 10 at the time, as a bridesmaid at the ceremony. It is safe to say that the wedding must have been very romantic and special, nonetheless, the relationship between Ozanne and Anderson didn’t work out, and their marriage fell through, which ultimately led to a divorce on 24 July 2007. It is rumoured that the reason for that was that Julian didn’t get along with Anderson’s daughter. To conclude, Julian’s marriage with Anderson was short-lived and they didn’t have any children together.
Many are wondering if Ozanne has remarried, but there is no information or even rumour of him dating since then – although he has appeared several times at events with his ex-wife – and in fact he has been off the professional radar in the most recent past.
