“She was my first big love. I didn’t want to be the target of photographers, it was voyeurism. I went to meditate at her grave a few days later, to be alone with her, without anyone. On the other hand, I went to watch her at her house. I wrote him a letter, which I have often read on television since. “, he said.
Moved, he goes on to say:
“I took a photo of her dead on her bed, which I keep in my wallet: Romy looks like she’s in a deep sleep, she’s beautiful. I watch it often…”

I give you back your freedom by leaving you my heart. I left with Nathalie. Forgive me. Alain”, said the biographer.
