"Gigi" is one of my all-time favorite Caron films. Here is the link to her filmography, and a great fansite.

Thank you for making a thread for Leslie!
I love watching her films. I was very fond of watching 'The Glass Slipper' as a child. I got hooked on her ever since.

Leslie talks about life today (guardian.co.uk):

Quote:
What I see in the mirror

I see a woman who has aged very well. I'm 78. There are a few wrinkles, a few sags, but very sparkly eyes and a tendency to giggle and smile a lot. People say I look remarkable for my age, which is flattering, and I am able to do an awful lot with my life, and that is the main thing for me, to be active. I have had a hip operation and eye operations like everybody else who's my age, but I keep things in running order. I had cosmetic surgery in my 40s and 50s, but I don't now. I think personality and spirit are more important than looks, but I look pretty good!

I think my blue eyes and generous mouth are my best features. I have short hair. I dye it brown, to what used to be my colour. I was blond for a short time, when I did a film called The Subterraneans and was playing an unhealthy girl. I didn't like it.

I used to be five foot three and a half, but I've shrunk, as one does. I am barely five foot. I keep slim: I don't want to be a fat sausage. I can't dance because of the hip operation, but I walk my dog. I eat sensibly – every day at lunch I have a steak with a big salad and I eat fruit, vegetables, yogurt and muesli. I seldom eat pastry – maybe once a year. I never eat desserts and I don't drink. That makes a big difference. Twelve years ago, I had a period when I was drinking. It didn't suit me and my life was going down the drain, so I stopped. I haven't had a drink in 11 years.
