This May 29, 2022, on the occasion of the fortieth year of Romy Schneider’s disappearance, the Journal du Dimanche wished to speak with Alain Delon. Former love and playmate of the actress, he confided in his subject but also on the event book of his son, Anthony.
On this Sunday, May 29, 2022, It’s been 40 years to the day that the beautiful Romy Schneider died. For the occasion, our colleagues from the Journal du Dimanche wanted to exchange with, we quote them, “the last sacred monster of French cinema”.
Alain Delon lent himself to the game, and spoke at length about the one who was his playing partner, but also his great love: “I think of her every day. She’s probably happier where she is than she was then.” he said.
But, after asking him several questions about the actress, the newspaper also asked him about his son, Anthony. Especially on his autobiography, Between dog and wolf, released on March 10. A shocking and moving book in which the actor’s son tackles the complicated relationship he has always had with his father.
Alain Delon “He was the son of Alain Delon, it’s not easy”
The release of this autobiography was thus not obvious, neither for one nor for the other. Family secrets were spread and shared with strangers. Surely to free the author, to lighten him up somewhat.
For Alain Delon, this book was hard to accept. He then explained all this: “There are some good things, some not so much. He is now almost 60 years old, an age where you have to think like a man of that age rather than like a kid. What makes him happy hurts me a lot. It’s hard for a father. But these are memories… It’s probably a way to kill the father.” he confided.
When our colleagues from the Journal du Dimanche came back to the fact that Anthony Delon described him as violent, but nevertheless forgave him and spoke a lot of love in his book, Alain, the father, came back to his son’s words: “Yes, of course. But not all children do that. I haven’t been terrible with him. I was a serious and strict father, that’s all. But he was Alain Delon’s son, it’s not easy.”
