Jean & Coco
I found Jean Seberg’s grave in the Cimetière du Montparnasse by accident on my way to pay respects to Serge Gainsbourg and Man Ray a few years ago. The beautiful type used on her headstone and a small potted flower caught my eye. I knelt next to her for a while and it was moving how modest her plot was in comparison to those around her. It was so strange to sit there quietly, alone next to such an icon–I kept thinking there should still be paparazzi or something. I love a lot of Jean Seberg’s films and if you haven’t seen it, my favorite of all is Bonjour Tristesse.
