Old JP here was quite the dandy around town back in the 60s. One of the most recognisable faces of the French New Wave cinema movement thanks to his starring role in Jean-Luc Godard’s seminal film Breathless, this rubber-faced charmer soon became a star in his native France. He moved mainly into theatre work in the 1980s, but just to live up to his national stereotype he spawned a child at the ripe old age of 70 with his much younger wife. C’est la vie, eh? Check out his performance in Stavisky from the director Alain Resnais, it is tres, tres bon. I’m telling you, these French dudes really know how to sex things up.
