Sultry film star Beatrice Dalle has married a prison inmate in western France, officials said today.

The 40-year-old, no stranger to run-ins with the law herself, met the unidentified inmate while she was a volunteer visitor at the prison in her home town of Brest in Brittany.

Officials at Brest City Hall said the wedding took place on Monday. Prison officials declined to comment, other than to say that marriages are not uncommon at the detention facility.

Dalle was convicted of shoplifting in 1992 and was given a suspended prison sentence. Four years later, she was fined for drug abuse.

Dalle created a sensation in France with the steamy character she played in her film debut Betty Blue in 1986.
