She was once one of the youngest models around

Eva Ionesco had a very interesting childhood being the daughter of a famous painter and photographer, Irina Ionesco. Obviously, Eva is one of those children whose childhood beauty could not go unnoticed. At the young age of four, Eva became her mother’s muse and model for her mother’s photography career. Although her picture poses were widely condemned as lascivious, Eva still became a popular child celebrity in all parts of Paris.

Aside from her mother, Eva also modeled for other top French photographers like Jacques Bourboulon, a famous fashion photographer for Vogue, Carven, Dior, and Féraud who now specializes in nude photography. Eva appeared in a Playboy nude pictorial and in the issue of the Spanish edition of Penthouse in November 1978. She also appeared on the cover page of the German news magazine, Der Spiegel.

Her acting career

The film was directed by a famous French-Polish movie director, writer, and producer, Roman Polanski. It also featured actors like Melvyn Douglas, Isabelle Adjani, and Shelley Winters. Eva was also cast in the 1970 film, Maladolescenza, which became controversial for its use of underage actresses. The film was regarded as child pornography and therefore was banned in most countries because of its sex scenes with child actresses.

Irina eventually lost custody of her children, including Eva, in 1977.
