France 2 broadcast a new number of 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, this Saturday, January 22, 2022. The latter was devoted to the love story between Jeanne Moreau and Pierre Cardin and more specifically to everything she did to succeed in seducing him.
It’s no secret that Jeanne Moreau and Pierre Cardin had a beautiful love story. A complicity many times told in particular by Paris Match in 2011. The two lovers had agreed to confide in the columns of the magazine. An interview republished on December 29, 2020 following the death of the French couturier. “The beginning of our love story, because it was a real beautiful love story, dates from 1961” began by announcing Jeanne Moreau. “When I met him, immediately good souls said to me: ‘He’s homosexual, you won’t get anywhere!’ I said, ‘I don’t care! I like it as it is, and as it is, I like it!’ I wanted it and I went to get it”.
A vision shared by the couturier: “You realize ? Being pursued by Jeanne Moreau: what man could resist? Anybody. Not even me. In any case, I couldn’t resist (…) I didn’t like women, and I loved Jeanne”. A couple that lasted four years, but an unwavering love story that would last their entire lives, until the death of Jeanne Moreau on July 31, 2017. A few years later, Pierre Cardin died on December 29, 2020. .
Determined Jeanne Moreau
On December 10, 2021, the new box set was released “I am all of you who listen to me” with many titles by Jeanne Moreau. On this occasion, the broadcast 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, broadcast on January 22, 2022 and presented by Laurent Delahousse devoted a portrait to this beautiful love story. The opportunity to come back to this meeting and to everything that the singer had done to try to seduce Pierre Cardin, as the journalist Alix Girod de l’Ain tells us: “Jeanne Moreau from the moment she has this crush, she goes back to the store all the time. But obviously, she can’t buy dresses every time because it’s expensive. She knew he was gay so it wasn’t easy. But she was already very much in love.”
Next is Sylvana Lorenz, author of “Madam Cardin” who tells : “One day she found out he was going to a theater festival in England, she got a ticket on all the flights that day because he had to leave that day. She pretended when she arrived to be surprised to be on the same flight when she had already waited two or three previous flights”. Jeanne Moreau will then follow him to the hotel where she will take a room next to his. The singer will finally knock on her door, she does a charming number, which works. Followed the love story that we know. Proof if it were necessary that the relentlessness pays.
