Unexpected career aspirations
Many professional wishes would have been given to Iris Berben (62), but this one? Rather not…
As a young woman, the actress really wanted to become a nun ! She, who likes to coquette with her wild youth, school noise and drug experiments. Iris Berben pious and abstemious? That does not seem to fit together.
The idea of devoting one's life to faith came to the TV star as a student at a Catholic boarding school. "I was about ten or eleven years old, " she recalls. Like every young girl, she made plans for her future, searching for her calling. "At some moments, I even thought that might be the answer: I would like to become a nun, " says the actress.
In her book "One Year - One Life", Iris Berben puts it this way: "I liked that nuns wear a wedding band because they are married to God." She liked the idea of having only one love for a lifetime. To feel this deep feeling only for one - God!
But it would have to be different: At 18 Iris Berben left the church and opted for acting and a wild marriage with her present-day friend Heiko Kiesow (52). The reason for the clear line: "I got no answers to my questions."
Still, your search for your own personal beliefs is still not over ...
