30 years of a difference … Whether the young girl could fall in love with the 60-year-old man seriously? Many didn't trust in the union of Oleg Tabakov and his 30-year-old schoolgirl. Evil tongues claimed that the divorce won't keep itself waiting, but lovers have proved everything that the age difference doesn't matter. The people's artist was happy more than 20 years in marriage with Marina Zudina and brought up two children.
Oleg and Marina in GITIS in 1981 when the actor gathered the next troupe of students on an actor's course have met. Then Zudina was only 16 years old and, of course, about any romantic relations and there was nothing to speak. She only admired famous, talented and incredibly charismatic teacher.
Gradually the relations of the teacher and the schoolgirl have developed into something bigger — this transition period has passed for others imperceptibly. Nobody can already remember when their relations have developed from workers into romantic. Just once Oleg Pavlovich became for Marina the main man in her life.
Tabakov has begun to give a ride to the young student to the subway by the car. Such behavior from the people's artist has given the soil for different rumors. All institute spoke about their novel — classmates have begun to condemn the Marine. In spite of the fact that during study she became the independent actress and has acted in 7 pictures, the attitude towards her hasn't changed. However, all this wasn't important when Oleg was near.
Oleg Pavlovich very long left the former family, feeling guilty before children Anton and Aleksandra. In youth the actor himself has taken a divorce of parents after treason of the father hard.
Tabakov in every possible way tried to break off the relations with Marina to keep family, and she wrote him farewell letters. But to leave it was final above their forces — between them I was strange and very strong attraction.
After Marin's GITIS I have got to "Snuffbox" which head was Tabakov. They saw each other every day and were finally in love each other, but Oleg all couldn't decide on a divorce in any way. And once he has understood that sense to store former marriage isn't present: children have grown up and have already got the families, and the official wife Lyudmila Krylova already several times suggested him to divorce.
Only in 10 years after the beginning of the affair with Zudina, Tabakov after all decides on a divorce to try to construct anew the happiness. Marina was on top of the world, she so long waited for this moment. In 1995 Marina and Oleg became officially the husband and the wife. Same year they gave birth to the son Pavel.
The birth of the firstborn became test for their union as Marina has been completely keen on education of the kid. But Oleg Pavlovich has found forces to reconcile to it and just was near, caring for the new family. In 2006 they gave birth to the daughter Maria who became an outlet for Tabakov and, according to him, the best demulcent.
The love to the Marine has seriously changed the people's artist. If prior to a meeting with her he constantly looked for adrenaline and adventures, then after the beginning of their novel, the actor has ceased to look at other women. For him there was only one now — the most favourite and unique Marina. Wife, friend and mother of children.
In one of the last interviews Oleg Tabakov has so answered a question of love:
"What is love? You know when we have wanted the son, we just have gone and have made him. And here when have decided to bring one more child, I worked in Budapest. Marina Vyacheslavovna has arrived to me to Hungary, the distance hasn't stopped her. The love is when there is no forces to suffer separation".
