To begin with, she comes from a family that made its fortune in the industry of lace in Nottinghamshire. Her great-aunt, Winifred May Birkin, then married with William Dudley Ward, was mistress of the Prince of Wales. Jane Birkin is the second daughter of Major David Birkin and actress and singer Judy Campbell. Jane turned to theatre, following in the footsteps of her mother.
At the beginning of the 1960s, she entered the pop scene of swinging London and made her debut as an actress at the age of 17. At that time she met the composer John Barry, who encouraged her to debut as a singer and with whom she ended up marrying at age 19. In the film “Blow Up” (1966) by Michelangelo Antonioni, the actress carried out her first controversial scene (appearing naked), which caused a great scandal in her native city. After the marriage failure and the birth of her daughter Kate in 1967, Jane moved to France. There she met Serge Gainsbourg, with whom she formed one of the fashionable couples in the Parisian scene, where they became famous in 1969 with the song “Je t’aime … moi non plus”, a sensual and provocative song that became worldwide success. In 1971, her daughter Charlotte Gainsbourg was born.
A fragile, tenuous voice remained as her hallmark, and was intelligently used by Gainsbourg, who adapted the songs to Jane’s voice, composing several works especially for her to interpret. They stayed together for 12 years, becoming a popular couple for the public and in the media. In the early 1980s, her personal and professional life suffered a severe setback due to her divorce from Serge Gainsbourg. (In 1982, she had another daughter, Lou Doillon, with the French film director Jacques Doillon.) Serge Gainsbourg continued composing for Birkin. The album “Baby alone in Babylon” was a great success in 1983. In 1985, she won the Best Actress Award at the Orleans Film Festival for her role in the film “Leave All Fair” (1985) as well as the Best Actress Award in the Venice Film Festival for her role in the film “Dust” (1985). In 1987, she gave her first concert in the Paris. She has also performed at the Casino de Paris in 1991, two months after the death of Gainsbourg and dedicated the concert to him.
In 1998, Birkin released her first album without Serge Gainsbourg “A la légère” with songs written by 12 contemporary French composers. Since 1998, she has released her own recordings, some of them with famous artists such as Djamel Ben Yelles, Manu Chao, Brian Molko, Bryan Ferry and Beth Gibbons.
Birkin was an honorary member of the festival Viennale 2005. In her honour, some of her films were performed during the festival, such as “Je t’aime”, “La Pirate” and “Daddy Nostalgia. In 2006, her album “Fictions” was released in which she again collaborated with contemporary musicians such as Beth Gibbons, Johnny Marr and Rufus Wainwright.
Finally, as previously mentioned, in the personal life of Birkin, she was married to John Barry (1965 – 1968). She partnered Serge Gainsbourg (1968–1980) and Jacques Doillon (1982–1991). Jane has three children Kate Barry, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Doillon.

The 1969 album "Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg" included the highly controversial track "Je T'Aime...Moi Non Plus" which, though sung entirely in French, was banned by several radio stations due to the simulated "aural" sex that consisted of various explicit "gasps," "sighs" and "moans" interspersed throughout the French lyrics. Despite its notoriety, the single went on to top the British charts in October 1969, eventually scoring in France, Italy, Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Switzerland, Holland and Sweden. By early 1970 it had sneaked onto the American charts where it enjoyed modest success
French design house Hermès named and designed a handbag for her in 1984. The now famous "Birkin" bag is one of their most popular (and expensive at at least $6000 a piece) handbags to date.
I don't know why people keep banging on about the '60s. I was very conventional because I came from a conventional family and I didn't go off with different people - I rather wish I had now, seeing all the fun everyone else was having. I just remember being married to [composer] John Barry and trying to be the best wife in the world. Newsweek magazine came over to London and did an interview with him and they wrote about "John Barry and his E-type Jaguar and his E-type wife." I remember thinking, "I'm not sure this is entirely a compliment" - on the contrary. But that's exactly what I was. And when John went off to America with another girl, what should have been a disaster for me was, in fact, the thing that actually made me have to go and do something for the first time in my life, because I had my baby, Kate, to support. So I went to France.
Any film I see at two o'clock in afternoon with my mother seems to cast a strange spell that means we both come out sobbing.
By meeting people in Sarajevo I realized I had nothing to complain about--they'd lost children crossing the road trying to find water. I stopped thinking about my problems and would sit with women in underground places, singing songs.
Big Ben . . . hearing the chimes makes me feel at home.
As there is no one to be pleased or unpleased with me, I'm actually rather merrier with my cat.
David Attenborough... has that wonderful, breathy voice and he's always so fascinated by what he's seeing. There's nothing about him that I can't find attractive.
