Alain Delon

Actually this post should sound like: "Alain Delon ." And that's it. Because he is one of the sacred monsters of  cinema and one of the most charismatic men in the entire World, ever. Sure he is 80 years old today being born in November 8th 1935, but he has a great career behind and he was in many situations a role model for people around the world. He was a great French actor playing in more than 100 movies, some of them in Hollywood. More than his movie characters, his spirit and his charm made all women dream and all men think at him as the one they want to become.

Delon was born in  Île-de-France, a suburb of Paris. He went in French Navy fighting as a marine during First Indochina War 1953-1954. He spent 11 months in jail and returned home in 1956. He worked as a porter, waiter, secretary and sales assistant. In 1957 he met Brigitte Auber and she introduced him in Cannes Film Festival. After this he made his film debut - "Quand la femme s'en mele". He publicly declared giving up acting in 1997 but he is still occasionally accepting roles.

He had a full life with a lot of girlfriends, many wives and children. He played a lot of characters in his movies and he became a successful businessman. He bought trotters and promoted fights. He was a movie producer, as well and launched a perfume under his name. Now his brand sells a variety of products as wristwatches, clothing, eyewear, stationery and cigarettes. Delon sunglasses are very popular in Hong Kong since a famous local actor, Cun-Yun-fat, wore them in a movie.

Alain Delon is politically involved in right wing French movement  - National Front - since 2013 when he declared his support for this party and MGC - in Switzerland. He is citizen of Switzerland, too, living in Geneva canton with his two youngest children. All his business are based in Switzerland as well.
