I am beyond thrilled to have Leslie Caron as my Parisian of the Month for February. I had the special privilege of interviewing Leslie at her home in Paris and we sat for over two hours as she spoke intimately about her life, loves, career, and children. Leslie Caron has such an eloquent and beautiful voice that I decided to post the interview as an audio interview rather than a written interview. I have divided the interview into two parts and each is about 25 minutes long. So sit back, steal a few minutes for yourself, and savor this fascinating interview. Part two will be posted tomorrow.

Most of my questions were based on the information from Leslie Caron's divine autobiography Thank Heaven: A Memoir. The interview is a small sliver of the rich life Leslie has lived.
