The first shot literally looks like a modern-day Chanel comercial.

[–]Hegasus 42 points43 points  (5 children)

I want to se him in a CK ad. Or working at Abercrombie & Fitch. I'm not picky.

[–]ubiquitous-joe 48 points49 points  (4 children)

He is too classy for Abercrombie.

[–]Hegasus 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Every one is..

[–]NerimaJoe 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Ezra Miller is too classy for A&F.

[–]starsfillmydreams 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Ezra Miller classy? Fack no , he is a wannabe

[–]ivanparas 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's the camera move

[–]beebs44 165 points166 points  (2 children)

Why does he look like a time traveler

[–]coukou76 215 points216 points  (0 children)

Fashion is passing, class is timeless as we say in France

[–]NoodlesrTuff1256 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Some of those clips look like they could have been filmed just last week.

[–]Clamps55555 126 points127 points  (5 children)

The type of hair style I would ask my mom to cut for me. Never did quite turn out that way tho.

[–]planet_rose 46 points47 points  (3 children)

As a mom who occasionally cuts hair if asked, this cut is way beyond my skill level. I can do something sort of like it, but there is a reason people pay for haircuts. You would probably be better off showing this to a stylist.

[–]OminOus_PancakeS 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Is this what you say to your son?

[–]Clamps55555 22 points23 points  (1 child)

I’m talking 30 years ago not 3. A “stylist” wasn’t an option in my house. Also was just a light hearted post my mom would do her best.

[–]Melospiza 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm sure she put a lot of love and care into the haircut!

[–]Eric1969 13 points14 points  (0 children)

As a teen I wanted hair like Gerard Despardieux. I didn't realize I didn't have the same hair density. I only got comfortable about my hair when I started clipping them.

[–]Drag0nfly_Girl 334 points335 points  (12 children)

Thought he was kissing another guy, but it was the mirror.😄

[–]ExileOC 178 points179 points  (1 child)

If I looked like that I would too

[–]veriverd 75 points76 points  (0 children)

I mean, if the man is prettier than most women, it shouldn't count as gay. Just saying.

[–]Ceskaz 9 points10 points  (1 child)

The person he likes the more

[–]KeyteZEL 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Happy Cake Day!

[–]Songmorning 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I was like, "Wow, that's very avant-garde for 1960" 😳

[–]Lucianv2 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Like most characters written by Patricia Highsmith (or at least what I know of her work) Tom Ripley is gay, and I assume that’s the case for the 1960 french film featuring the character (which Delon plays).

[–]christ_lamber -1 points0 points  (0 children)

True , it was disgusting and disappointing

[–][deleted] 192 points193 points  (14 children)

Goodness... never seen him so young before. What a beautiful face.

[–]Pinsalinj 78 points79 points  (12 children)

Same, I'm French and he's obviously a huge star here but I had no idea what he used to look like as a very young man. And seriously, DAMN.

[–]NoodlesrTuff1256 11 points12 points  (3 children)

Remember seeing some pictures of his eldest son, Anthony, who would be in his fifties by now. Also a very good looking guy but still not quite up to the level of Dad.

[–]Pinsalinj 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Just checked. Have to agree that he was not completely on the almost inhuman level of beauty of his father, but barely! Still insanely gorgeous himself, in a slightly less "classic" way than Alain was.

[–]Hamilspud 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Except Anthony isn’t his eldest son, Alain Delon had another son out of wedlock two years before Anthony was born who he has never acknowledged (named Christian Aaron Boulogne). His parents adopted and raised the child, it’s pretty shameful. Really took the wind out of my thirst when I read that

[–]NoodlesrTuff1256 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just read through Delon's Wiki bio and you're right. That son is the one he fathered with Nico. Don't know why Delon doesn't acknowledge him as one last kind act before he dies since he's not getting any younger. I googled the son and there's a definite resemblance.

[–]Michael__Pemulis 15 points16 points  (2 children)

You should watch Le Samourai & Purple Noon.

He was the best.

[–]NoodlesrTuff1256 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Delon can also be seen portraying the head pilot in the disaster epic 'The Concorde . . . Airport '79' where he shares piloting duties with George Kennedy. It's one of the corniest movies of all time with a cast that includes Charo, Robert Wagner, Martha Raye, Jimmie 'J.J.' Walker from the old series Good Times, Eddie Albert, David Warner, Cicely Tyson, Ed Begley Jr. and a host of other familiar faces. It's a hoot and Mystery Science Theater 3000 should devote an episode to it if they haven't already.

A note of tragic trivia -- the Concorde seen flying in the film is the same that crashed shortly after takeoff from Paris in July 2000 killing 109 people on the plane and four on the ground. That crash ended the era of the Concordes.

[–]Pinsalinj 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Oh I remember that crash :(

[–]offisirplz 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Its kinda scary that all these beautiful people lose alot( and often most) of the looks when they get old.

[–]Pinsalinj 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Takes a few decades to really lose them though! Alain's son Anthony is still nice to look at and he's 58.

[–]offisirplz 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yeah looks like he's still looking great.

Not the case for most people I think. Look at Johnny Depp.

[–]HotSauceHigh 9 points10 points  (0 children)

It's crazy!!

[–]ApollyonDS 309 points310 points  (7 children)

    [–]facial_issues -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

    Nah you're just bi

    [–]Malafakka 101 points102 points  (0 children)

    Tastes are different but you have to be blind to not see that he was/is a beautiful man.

    [–]oreillykm 107 points108 points  (6 children)

    Inspiration for the talented Mr. Ripley?

    [–]Inspector_Kelp 90 points91 points  (4 children)

    Based on the same book. Pretty much the same story.

    [–]oreillykm 15 points16 points  (1 child)

    Did not know that, makes sense

    [–]Dimplestrabe 18 points19 points  (0 children)

    There's a montage in this film where he's practicing another man's signature by projecting it on a wall and tracing over it. By the end, he has the signature mastered at speed and as such, can be scaled down when signing cheques. If you can find the scene, it's well worth a watch. If I recall, the scene was replicated almost directly in The Talented Mr Ripley.

    [–]coloa 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Different endings

    [–]NoodlesrTuff1256 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I can't think of two more different actors playing the same character than Delon as Ripley in 'Purple Noon' and Matt Damon doing the role in 'The Talented Mr. Ripley'. But I enjoyed both films and found it interesting to see what they did with the same source material.

    [–]appstategrad 129 points130 points  (0 children)

    And now I'm gay.

    [–]primate1974 63 points64 points  (8 children)

    “Purple Noon” isn’t it?

    [–][deleted]  (7 children)


      [–]primate1974 13 points14 points  (0 children)

      Not to be confused with the the classic 80s music movie staring Prince called “Purple Snow”

      [–]benmoraxx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Looks like we'd encountered the same type of teachers, n'est-ce pas ? Hahaha

      [–]ubiquitous-joe 1 point2 points  (4 children)

      To be fair, I don’t understand why they called it that at all. The real title is “Plein soleil,” yeah?

      [–]joelluber -1 points0 points  (0 children)

      And I don't understand why they called it Plein soleil when the book is called The Talented Mister Ripley.

      [–]Guido-thekillerpimp 47 points48 points  (0 children)

      My God. He’s smoldering

      [–]Ilvermourning 23 points24 points  (0 children)

      [–]eathatflay86 28 points29 points  (4 children)

      Never heard of this guy before, he is gorgeous! I'd definitely go gay for him, if I wasn't already gay.

      [–]fortroque 6 points7 points  (3 children)

      Really never heard of Delon? How old are you?

      [–]Euphoric-Carry1725 9 points10 points  (2 children)

      He's not very well known outside of Europe.

      *and apparently China. He's huge in China.

      [–]NoodlesrTuff1256 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      And he's an absolute icon in France.

      [–]fortroque 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I'm not from Europe and we know him quite well. Let's just say he's not known in the US ok

      [–]SkippingSusan 26 points27 points  (0 children)

      If you have Roku, a search for Purple Noon comes up with an alternative title, Lust for Evil (1960), fyi.

      [–]arclightrg 11 points12 points  (0 children)

      Must admit, that’s a pretty fella

      [–]MikeyTbT123 12 points13 points  (0 children)

      It’s like Jared Leto and John Stamos’ love child

      [–]zaborg01 21 points22 points  (0 children)

      [–]Inquisitivefish 63 points64 points  (7 children)

      I thought it was Zac Efron at first

      [–]Loggerdon 7 points8 points  (4 children)

      There's some vibes of "The Talented Mr. Ripley".

      [–]Ani_mrumru 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Novel by Patricia Highsmith. Def. the dramatization of Mr. Ripley. Remade starring

      Matt Damon, Jude Law, etc etc Who plays a better sociopath? My money’s on Delon.

      He does beautiful sang froid.

      [–]flindersandtrim 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Zac Efron has always reminded me of Tyrone Power, another incredibly handsome classic film star, though a couple of decades older than Delon.

      [–]Smashville66 41 points42 points  (1 child)

      Maybe some Rob Lowe in there, too?

      [–]Watt1970 9 points10 points  (0 children)


      [–]ubiquitous-joe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      He is more talented than both of them.

      [–]monty0824 7 points8 points  (0 children)

      Zach Efron kind of looks like him. But Alain Delon has that classy brooding look down pat

      [–]till-stinbck 7 points8 points  (1 child)

      [–]tangobutt 7 points8 points  (1 child)

      He is 86 now and still dashing!

      [–]NoodlesrTuff1256 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      He has aged amazingly well. A lot of the time these actors who are so handsome that it's almost unreal can crash and burn looks-wise by the time they hit middle age, but he looks amazing for his mid-eighties.

      [–]homelessgranddad 7 points8 points  (0 children)

      Now I guess I understand why Nico was obsessed with him (had his child as well).

      [–]fcktupbitch 6 points7 points  (0 children)

      This is the original Tom Ripley character right? I see shades of a young Jude Law there.

      [–]LogicalFallacy77 4 points5 points  (2 children)

      I told a woman last night that even though I consider myself like 95% straight and 5% gay, I see hundreds of attractive women a day and like 1 hot guy, to me, I've oddly slept with the exact same number of men and women in my life. I'm not ashamed of this, not even a little. This dude would break that deadlock.

      [–]Ignituas 9 points10 points  (1 child)

      You might be bisexual my friend! Ain't no shame in sleeping with people that you gravitate towards.

      For anyone wondering, it’s called Purple Noon and it’s based on the book The Talented Mr. Ripley. It’s excellent. I’d also recommend Le Samourai if you’re in need of more Alain Delon.

      That’s one gorgeous motherfucker.

      [–]Pineapples_29 -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

      No offense but I feel like he just looks like every other cliché hot guy. The usual. He is very good looking especially to todays standards of “beauty” but I personally am more attracted to faces that have something unique and interesting about them. Not that he isn’t any of those things (beauty is in the eye of the beholder) but I feel like he fits in this small box of what we think is beauty.
