Just as beautiful as ever...
I thought I spotted Bouquet at bistro L'Ami Louis last October but I was wrong.
Much better to see Bouquet up close and taste her luscious liqueur, Sangue d'oro she makes on the tiny island of Pantelleria near Sicily.
Golden like honey, 'with confit notes of bergamotte, cinchona and dried apricot...
'A smooth mouth..the perfect blend of softness and fine length on the palate..' Try it!
Bouquet chatted with John Mariani on her film career - she's 55 and has made 55 films. Acting doesn't stop for French women when they become 'une femme d'un certain age'. And national theatres, supported by the government provide additional work to films.
Warm, natural, animated, Bouquet was not the Mona Lisa/sphinx I was expecting.
Her porcelain beauty is legend but working in the 007 film, For Your Eyes Only, was hell.
Luis Bunuel's That Obscure Object of Desire was Bouquet's first entry into films at just 20 and mostly by chance and luck.
Chanel quickly came calling but Bouquet waited till she was 28 to step into the role of spokeswoman, so her acting would not be overshadowed.
I thought this was Carole Bouquet in the newest Cartier lavish commercial, but it's a look-alike...
Have you seen Odyssee de Cartier?
Bouquet was wearing earrings almost as fab as her wine.
Merci Mme. Bouquet!
