Honestly, if you haven’t seen The Leopard or La Piscine, then immediate viewing is essential. Delon is heartbreakingly beautiful in both films (they are also both really good films, FYI. And cinematic classics. Seriously, like, what have you been doing?) and so unbelievably WOULD. Possessed with the kind of facial bone structure that only angels, models and I possess, petit Alain was always destined for stardom. Often referred to as the male Bardot (less do do with talent, more to do with lazy journalism and with reference to his extreme sex appeal), this French fancy has lived up to the universally acknowledged (racist) stereotype of the Gallic male by sleeping with almost everyone he sees.
