Hypnotique









As he celebrates his 80th birthday today, the utterly gorgeous Alain Delon continues to court controversy - his support for the right-wing Front National in France and less-than-enlightened comments on homosexuality are hardly endearing traits.

I am, however, completely in agreement with the actor Vincent Lindon, who recently said: "He had this infernal beauty, it's hypnotising... You can look at photos of him for hours and hours."







So true.

Alain Fabien Maurice Marcel Delon (born 8th November 1935)

France still in thrall to its 'sacred monster' Alain Delon

More of the divine M Delon here, here and here.

    1. Agreed - but as the Roman post Juvenal said: "Rare is the union of beauty and purity."

  2. I think it's law in France that if you're an entertainer over seventy you have to turn into a racist nutjob.

    You also aren't allowed to run for office unless you're carrying out at least one adulterous relationship.

    Let's face it, the french are just genetically racist. Only when they have been exterminated will racism cease to exist.
