The future of the super popular character of Russian show-business Ivan Okhlobystin was born on 22 July 1966-year in the Tula region — official sources as field Office point holiday house «Polenovo». The parents of the future actor was a huge age difference — nearly half a century. Ivan’s mother was a student, had just reached the age of majority. The children of her husband from a previous marriage, was much older. Perhaps that is why the marriage quickly disintegrated. When Ivan was young, his father left the family, finally confessing to his son that is afraid, because otherwise the wife would kill him one day. Boy self-educated young, but strict mother.
Biography of Ivan Okhlobystin childhood is not different from other stories of his peers — he lacked the stars from the sky» and was an ordinary kid in love with science and creativity.
His childhood «sharp tongue,» the writer and the actor spent Maloyaroslavets, but later his family moved to the Russian capital later in Moscow Okhlobystin graduated from high school and enrolled in VGIK. Himself in an interview and the stories described his childhood as unremarkable period, it was brought up mainly mother and father, though he was kind, funny» man, made an attempt to educate the offspring only once because «two» in the Russian language. Okhlobystin told that the father then brought a Russian language textbook and soy sauce:
«He made me eat the whole thing. I am a student of the 4th class the whole day eating it and cried.»
After school, Ivan joined the film Institute. In admissions sat Igor Talankin, which is almost a textbook asked the applicant to surprise him. Okhlobystin replied sharply that he had come to say a new word in cinema, not entertain the Commission. The boy was immediately expelled from the exam, but quickly returned – this trick really surprised the Director.
Ivan Okhlobystin did not have time to finish my studies in cinematography, as he was drafted into the army, but after the compulsory service, he was reinstated at the Institute. In the army the young man three months spent in the brig, but he said it was much better than life in the barracks, and the loneliness made and gave time to think about many important things.
Already as a student of VGIK, Okhlobystin was able to meet with many famous figures of culture, art and cinema of the present. He studied at one time with Renata Litvinova, Tigran Keosayan, Fedor Bondarchuk and others.
First short student films have earned numerous international awards at the International film festival in USA and Potsdam youth film festival. After the restoration of the film Institute TV star got engaged in public activities, and after graduating in 1992-m to year of VGIK he fully plunged into the work, became Secretary of the Union of cinematographers of the USSR.
Of religiosity in the childhood years of Ivan out of the question because his parents were Communists. At school the boy realized that he must do something eternal and real, seeing themselves in film. Specialized education and University friendship with many actors and Directors have practically determined the future of the actor.
In his youth Ivan was a rebel, joined the bikers. Echoes of the biker subculture has forever remained in the image of Okhlobystin: even after becoming a priest, he continued to walk in a leather jacket. The folly of youth has left other traces in the expressions of the actor tattoo. Hands and torso Ohlobystina covered with various images. The actor says that tattoos represent a certain milestone in his life, but in the figures, it makes no sense, they are made drunk, and for the sake of coolness.
The only really meaningful tattoo Okhlobystin made after the meeting with his wife. On the chest of the actor embossed skull full of flowers. Ivan calls it a sign of a dead biker. Okhlobystin became an exemplary husband and father. In the circles of extreme family people are considered dead to the community: will people who have children, drive fast and risk their life.
Numerous tattoos do not interfere with her acting career Okhlobystin. For example, in the «Intern» that peculiarity of the appearance of Dr. Bykov has explained almost biographically — the stormy youth of a doctor in the marginal subcultures. The only disadvantage, which, however, does not upset the actor for him is closed most of the sex scenes. The whole half-naked tattooed man of medium height and age does not fit into the desired romantic images. For Ohlobystina Directors even ruled out Nude scenes from the story.
To reduce the image from the body of the actor is not going to. He claims that tattoo done a long time ago, in the old, so the paint under the skin introduced much deeper than in modern works – will leave deep scars. This refusal brought down on Okhlobystin a wave of criticism due to the fact that Ivan has a direct relationship to the Church, but it is on the body of pagan runes and obscene images.
