Film Legend Moreau Gets Lusty Intro From Fashion Maven Cardin

At a ceremony that might only have been staged in France, fashion designer Pierre Cardin reminisced about once making love to Jeanne Moreau as he introduced the actress, who Thursday became the first woman member of France's Beaux Arts Academy. Speaking to a star-studded audience at Moreau's induction into the academy, Cardin remarked "Is there a better reason to exist?" as he reminisced about how their love making occurred in the same Venice hotel room that novelist George Sand and poet-playwright Alfred de Musset had occupied in 1834. (The literary couple both became seriously ill, Sand fell in love with her physician, and de Musset returned home alone.)
