The most famous heroine of Larisa Guzeeva was also called Larisa (the film “Cruel Romance”). According to the actress, she was named after Larisa Ogudalova, the heroine of Ostrovsky. Whether this “experience of the name” helped the film director Addie Andrews to see the future “dowryless” in a thin aspiring actress who came to the casting in a hippie outfit, is unknown. But he saw, saw the very essence – her femininity and strength.
Larisa Guzeeva does not hide the fact that she never saw her father. When she was 5 years old, her mother, Albina Andreevna, a teacher of history, got married, and already her stepfather took an active part in raising the girl. If the mother loved and spoiled her daughter, then the stepfather was strict with her, forbade a lot, for which later, as Guzeeva admits, she became grateful to him.
And mother’s boundless love instilled in Larisa self-confidence, that she is the best, the most beautiful. This supported her in her childhood desire to become an actress, which gradually grew into conviction. She was thin and was not popular with rural suitors who preferred owners of magnificent forms. The actress recalled that she wore several pantyhose at the same time to make her legs look fuller.
After school, Larisa Guzeeva went to Leningrad to enter the Institute of Theater, Music and Cinematography (LGITMIK). Assessing the number and beauty of those wishing to become applicants, Guzeeva shaved her head baldly in order to stand out and attract the attention of the selection committee.
And she was noticed. Beautiful, self-confident, extravagant, sharp-tongued, she did not join the student team, preferring the work of a model and a bohemian party to student subbotniks and skits. Artists, informal musicians, poets – the alternative youth of the 70s attracted her much more than classmates.
From the first year, Guzeeva starred in commercials. After graduating from the institute, he is in no hurry to enter the theater, but tries to act in films. And immediately such luck: the role of Larisa Dmitrievna Ogudalova in Ryazanov’s film. Although her very first appearance on the screen took place in the film “The meeting place cannot be changed” – a girl dancing with Taraskin in a restaurant. But then, due to the insignificance of the episode, the name of Guzeeva was not even put in the credits.
After the “Cruel Romance”, the whole country recognized her. True, according to Ryazanov, the triumph was blurred by the release of two weak films to the “romance”, in which the actress starred because of the money. But, nevertheless, Guzeeva was remembered and loved.
In total, the filmography of Larisa Guzeeva has about 60 paintings.
In 2008, the actress was invited to the role of a TV presenter in the talk show Let’s Get Married. Since then, Guzeeva has been constantly helping everyone who wants to find their other half with advice. Her precise, very witty and aphoristic comments immediately go to the people.
