Jane & Serge

Probably the chicest couple throughout history. Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin had a passionate relationship and their daughter is the amazing actress Charlotte Gainsbourg. Serge fell in love with Jane in 1968 during the shooting of the movie “Slogan” by Pierre Grimblat. Birkin describes the beginning of their love affair: a night where Serge took her out to a nightclub, then to a transvestite club and then he passed out at the Hilton after to many beers! Romantic. Even after their crazy beginning they married each other when Jane was 21 and Serge was 40. I think it’s suitable¬†to give you the opportunity to listen to their single “Je t’aime moi non plus” which caused an absolute scandal when released. The reason why was because of the lyrics and Jane’s passionate whispering.
