It’s a part of my life .. . We started together 60 years ago (…) We are the same age, it will soon happen to me too, get ready “.

Referring to his on-screen rivalry with Bébel, Alain Delon abstract : “I was no more than him, he was no more than me“.

On Europe 1, the actor said to himself “smashed“after the loss of sound”friend“. Already very touched by the disappearance of Mireille Darc in 2017, Alain Delon concludes with a tight throat: “He’s a colleague, we’ve known each other for 60 years, worked together and been so close to each other. I am upset.”
