French actress Beatrice Dalle has married a prison inmate in a secret ceremony in her native French town of Brest, Brittany.

The BETTY BLUE star, 40, wed an unidentified convict at the Hermitage Prison's visitor room on Monday (03JAN05).

Local mayor RENEE MILIN says Dalle - whose birth name is BEATRICE CABARROU - was emotional as she filled out the official papers at Brest's town hall.

Dalle has had numerous run-ins with the law herself - in 1996 she was convicted of cocaine and heroin possession, and in 1999 she was arrested in Miami, Florida, for cocaine possession.

She has previously been married to JEAN-FRANCOIS DALLE and French rapper JOEY STARR.
