Personal Quote:

"I know that the greatest of actresses has about 20 good years of acting in her and that she will go on living for 30 or 40 years as a human being. So, the conclusion I have come to is that I can't make acting my whole life. See more »

Trivia:

Her marriage to the 24-years-older Russian novelist Romain Gary was tempestuous and profoundly unhappy due to his obsessive, Svengali-like influence on her. Divorced in 1970 after she bore Carlos Navarra's daughter, she committed suicide in 1979. Gary took his own life by gunshot the very next year; however, he stated in his suicide note that Jean's suicide had nothing to do with his. See more »
