Alain Delon rightfully bears the proud "title" of the most beautiful actor in French cinema of the 20th century, and his name has already become a household name. Many consider Delon too narcissistic and self-centered, others idolize him and call him a genius.
One way or another, Alain Delon was able to become one of the most popular and sought-after film actors of his time, becoming famous not only in France, but throughout the world. However, numerous admirers and admirers were interested not only in the creative component of the filmmaker's life, but also in his love stories - the magnetic beauty and charm of Delon drove many women crazy. Let's talk about the most famous novels of the actor.
In 1973, Alain Delon and the popular French performer of Italian descent Delilah presented the world with a cult composition called "Paroles, Paroles", which became one of the most recognizable French songs of the 20th century.
However, as it turned out in 2011, the actor and singer were connected not only by a working relationship. In his memoir Women of My Life, Delon said that he and Delilah had an affair in the 1950s, when both of them were still little known in France. The actor wrote that at the beginning of his career, he and Yolanda Gigllotti (the singer's real name) lived on the rue Jean-Mermoza in Paris, where they met. Thus began their short-lived, but romantic love story, which the world learned about only a few decades later.
Also in his book, the actor mentioned that the only thing he regrets in life is that he did not have time to call his former lover before she committed suicide in May 1987, unable to withstand the oppression of loneliness.
The lovers met on the set of the movie "Christina" in 1956. At that time, Schneider was already a famous actress, while Delon was just beginning his path to fame. Nevertheless, the aspiring actor was able to charm Schneider, and soon the couple was already openly showing their feelings to the world.
The media called the novel of Delon and Schneider the love story of the century, and fans admired their quivering and tender feelings for each other. After some time, the lovers announced their engagement, and the whole world held its breath in anticipation of a luxurious wedding. However, the celebration was not destined to happen.
The couple's relationship ended as quickly as it began. Schneider in love completely dissolved in her feelings for the actor, which began to annoy Delon. He soon broke off the engagement, and the couple broke up.
Natalie is the only Delon woman whose relationship with the actor formalized. The future spouses met in 1962, and a stormy romance immediately broke out between them. The relationship developed rapidly - it seemed that Alain and Natalie were two halves of one whole. The lovers were similar to each other not only in character, but also in appearance - they were often mistaken for brother and sister.
Two years later, the couple got married, and everyday life gradually began to come to the fore. Quarrels, screams and scandals have become an integral part of the life of the spouses. Even the birth of a child did not save the cracked marriage, and four years later Alain Delon and Natalie divorced.
Born Christa Paffgen became famous in the 1960s after the release of the film La Dolce Vita, directed by Frederico Fellini, in which Paffgen played a cameo role.
About a year later, the actress met Alain Delon, from whom she gave birth to a son in 1962. However, the French actor refused to acknowledge his paternity, especially since at that time he had already begun a dizzying affair with his future wife Natalie.
Nico named her son Christian Aaron Paffgen, and Alain Delon's parents Edith and Paul Boulogne were involved in his upbringing. Later, the parents of the French actor adopted Christian and gave him their last name.
By the way, Alain Delon never recognized Christian as his son, saying that he considered him his friend and nothing more.
The relationship between the French actress and model Mireille Dark and Alain Delon began as a fleeting relationship, but unexpectedly spilled over into a civil marriage that lasted about thirteen years.
The couple met in 1969 on the set of the movie Jeff. At first, Dark became the actor's personal assistant, and later the business relationship grew into a strong friendship, and then into love. Mireille Dark became Delon's closest person - she helped him in his work, took care of his health, and even helped the actor to get his former passion Romy Schneider out of depression when her son tragically died.
Everyone was waiting for a luxurious wedding, but the couple had a different future. In 1983, the lovers broke up, and now Dark has begun a period of prolonged depression. In the same year, another misfortune happened to the actress - she got into a car accident, after which she miraculously survived. By the way, Delon spent all his free time in the hospital ward of the actress and supported her in every possible way, but it was already just a friendly relationship.
Rosalie Van Bremen
In 1987, Alain Delon started another dizzying romance. The actor's chosen one was the model Rosalie Van Bremen. The couple's relationship lasted for about ten years, turning into a civil marriage. Bremen also gave birth to her beloved daughter Anushka and son Alain-Fabien.
But this alliance was not destined to last forever. After a while, problems began in the relationship between Bremen and Delon, which were aggravated by the actor's stubborn unwillingness to marry his beloved and the mother of his children.
In 1997, van Bremen decided to leave her common-law spouse - the model took the children and left their common home, and later married the famous French businessman Alain Afflela.
Now Delon lives alone in his home in Paris. The actor left his career in 2017, and not so long ago Delon had a stroke, after which the filmmaker began to have memory problems (read also: Alain Delon was urgently hospitalized).
The French filmmaker's relationship with the children did not work out - the eldest son Anthony told the press more than once that after the divorce of his parents, Delon did not show interest in his life, and therefore there was no special connection between them. The same can be said about the actor's youngest child - after Delon and Rosalie van Bremen separated, Alain-Fabienne ended up in a rehabilitation clinic. Then the actor decided to achieve full custody of the child, but the fact that he won the trial did not improve the relationship between father and son. Later, the actor's heir accused him of repeatedly beating his mother, breaking her nose and several ribs, and also not paying due attention to the children.
Delon responded to his son's accusations in an interview with the daily Le Parisien:
"This is madness. My son's mind is clouded, and he gives sensational interviews just for the money. I am not the one who will use physical violence against family members."
Christian Aaron Boulogne in his interviews even calls Delon a "monster", and also says that the actor never worried about his own children.
Perhaps the only child with whom Delon was able to maintain human relations is his daughter Anushka. Pictures often appear on the Web in which the father is captured with his daughter, and he himself says that he always dreamed of his daughter, and calls Anushka a miracle.
