Anne Parillaud, who had a romance with Alain Delon for several years, received a particularly touching gift from the actor.
Anne Parillaud discovered the power of words through Alain Delon. Le Guépard, with whom she had a romance in the 80s, gave him his first book, Birds hide to die, by Colleen McCullough. “It was Alain Delon who gave it to me on one of my first shoots because he was devastated that I do not read“, entrusted to Nice morning the actress, who was at the Festival des mots, in the Alpes-Maritimes.
Anne Parillaud was “disgusted with reading”
A particularly significant gift for Anne Parillaud, who published her first novel, The Abused, in 2021. A book she took six years to write. And if Alain Delon had never offered her this book, would the actress have dared to turn the pages of a novel? His former disinterest in books goes back to childhood.
“I didn’t read and school had put me off reading. Forcing a child to read is the best way to prevent him from reading.“, she added to Nice-Matin, before specifying that today, she does not “read for pleasure”. “I read because I want to be questioned”, concluded the 62-year-old actress.
