Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on Anita Pallenberg] I knew her since we were first hanging out in London with The Rolling Stones. She was a real nasty person. She would do anything to upset her girlfriends. I don't know her anymore. See more »

Trivia:

The father of her son is Alain Delon. She had an affair with him in 1962. See more »

Trademark:

Her deep narcotic monotone voice, as well as her low moans, high cheekbones and heavy make-up, a style resurrected by the goths, who anticipated the "Nico from the Grave" look
