Sergey Zhigunov and Anastasia Zavorotnyuk: romance and separation
Today the name of Anastasia Zavorotnyuk is well known to many moviegoers and lovers of reality shows such as “Dancing with the Stars”, “Dancing on the Ice”, “Ice Age”, “Minute of Glory” and many others. But some 15 years ago, this actress was known only to a small circle of fans. Everything changed in 2004, when the Amedia studio commissioned by STS started filming the comedy series My Fair Nanny. Anastasia Zavorotnyuk Initially, the producers planned to invite Natasha Koroleva to the role of Vika Prutkovskaya. Also, a charming nanny with Ukrainian roots had every chance to play Nona Grishaeva, Evelina Bledans, Olga Shelest, Zhanna Friske and several hundred more famous and not very performers.
However, luck smiled at the actress of the theater-studio Oleg Tabakov Zavorotnyuk. The partner of Anastasia and the performer of the role of music producer Maxim Shatalin was the incredibly popular in those years, Sergey Zhigunov. Filming the series “My Fair Nanny” At the very beginning of the filming process, the relationship between the leading actors was not very smooth. Zhigunov, as a star, periodically presented various claims to his partner. He did not immediately discern in her a talented actress and a charming woman. But gradually the tension between them disappeared. Moreover, portraying passionate feelings in the frame every day, Anastasia and Sergey transferred on-screen love to reality. And a purely professional relationship has grown into a deeper, more intimate relationship. In the photo: Zhigunov and Zavoronyuk.
The matter was complicated by the fact that at that time both Zhigunov and Zavorotnyuk were already officially married. Behind the shoulders of the artist was a family life of 20 years, a devoted wife Vera Novikova and two daughters. Nastia also had two children from an alliance with businessman Dmitry Stryukov. But neither the stamps in the passports, nor the wounded feelings of loved ones became an obstacle to the lovers. In 2007, the star of the films “Midshipmen” and “Hearts of Three” divorced his wife. Zavorotnyuk’s divorce from her husband took place a year earlier. Over the next couple of years, Nastya and Sergey were in a romantic relationship.
Together they traveled the world, took part in various concerts. A man who lost his head in love even gave his lady a heart a white gold engagement ring with a dozen diamonds, the largest of which bore the romantic name “Princess”. As a producer, Zhigunov achieved for his beloved the main roles in the projects “Code of the Apocalypse” and “Shakespeare never dreamed of.” In addition, he contributed to the development of Anastasia’s career on Channel One. However, neither mutual passion nor joint commercial cooperation could provide the artists with a long, happy future. They never registered a joint marriage, and in the spring of 2008 they broke up for unknown reasons.
Immediately after the breakup, the “beautiful nanny” called her relationship with the actor a big mistake. And only six months later, she married Russian and American skater Peter Chernyshov. Zhigunov, however, begged forgiveness from his first wife and remarried her. For a very long time, the actor did not comment on his relationship with his ex-lover. But the constant questions of journalists and the provocative statements of the artist herself and her friends still made Zhigunov speak out.
IN ONE OF THE INTERVIEWS OF THE LIFEBOARDS ACKNOWLEDGED THAT ALSO IN THE TIMES OF RURAL NOVEL, I HAVE GOT WARNING FROM EXISTING HUSBAND OF THE ACTRESS, BUT DID NOT TAKE HER WORD SERIOUSLY. DMITRY STRYUKOV assured that WRAPPING IS NOT ABLE FOR REAL FEELINGS, AND ALL OF LOVE IS BUILT TO GET A PERSONAL BENEFIT FOR MYSELF. At the same time, he added that he still considers a woman a talented actress and an extraordinary personality.
The only thing that upsets and annoys him is that Anastasia invents new details of their relationship each time. Not so long ago, an interview with Natalya Bondarchuk appeared in Express Gazette, in which she, as a close friend of Zavorotnyuk, accuses the artist of raising his hand to the actress. ZHIGUNOV ANSWERED THE DIRECT STATEMENT OF THE DIRECTOR, ADVISING THE COLLEAGUE TO STOP, IN ORDER “TO NOT BE IN THE SHADOW RANGE OF MEDIA FREAKERS”. Anastasia Zavorotnyuk and Natalia Bondarchuk Regarding the current state of the former partner, Sergei prefers not to comment on the current situation at all. He stated that he did not and could not have any information about her situation, since they had not been communicating for a long time.
