Alain Delon, 85, will be entitled to his star on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles.
After receiving an honorary Palme d’Or in 2019, Alain Delon will once again be honored by a legendary institution.
According to Paris Match, the legendary comedian will receive his star on the Walk of Fame located on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. Delon succeeds Charles Aznavour, the last Frenchman to be celebrated on the Californian promenade. It was in 2017, a year before his death at 94.
The superstar will attend the ceremony with her three children, Anthony, Anouchka and Alain-Fabien. The event will be scheduled before the Oscars, around March 2022. It is a consecration for Alain Delon, known worldwide for his roles with Luchino Visconti (Le Guépard), Jean-Pierre Melville (Le Samouraï) or Jacques Deray (La Pool).
Each year, the Walk of Fame committee receives more than 200 nominations. In the end, he only retains about twenty. The lucky ones must then pay the sum of $ 50,000 to have their star engraved on the boulevard.
Delon thus joined the very closed club of French people honored in Hollywood, from Charles Boyer to Maurice Chevalier via composer Maurice Jarre, director Jean Renoir or actresses Leslie Caron and Michèle Morgan. About twenty French artists received this supreme distinction. In all, the Walk of Fame has over 2,600 stars!
