When talking about French cinema it is impossible not to think of one of its greatest stars, Alain Delon. The legendary actor who participated in acclaimed films such as El Eclipse, El Gatopardo or Borsalino, a film in which he starred alongside his friend and another great French star, Jean-Paul Belmondo, is going through a delicate moment, since since he suffered a double stroke in 2019 and he had a very close loss, his life has been a martyrdom, for which he requested euthanasia.

In recent weeks, the actor’s request has gone around the world. Now his son Anthony Delon reported that he is carrying out the necessary procedures to fulfill the wishes of his father.

In 2021 Delon suffered another blow in his life, is that his life partner Nathalie Canovas, the only woman he married, died of pancreatic cancer. Seeing the suffering of his partner was what led the Frenchman to make this decision so as not to have to go through the same thing. The actor currently resides in Switzerland, where this practice is legal, and from there in his last interviews he made it clear that he is in favor of euthanasia.

“I am in favor of a dignified death. First because I live in Switzerland, where euthanasia is legal, and also because I think it’s the most logical and natural thing to do. A person has the right to leave in peace, without going through hospitals, injections and so on. Getting old sucks and you can’t do anything about it,” said the actor who used to be known as “The Most Beautiful Man in the World.”

Taking into account that the decision is irremovable, Alain published a heartfelt farewell message that his son read to the media: “I would like to thank everyone who has accompanied me over the years and has given me great support. I hope that future actors can find in me an example not only in the workplace, but in everyday life, between victories and defeats. Thanks. Alain Delon”.
