His Story of Love

When he first saw Vanessa, he wasn’t sure whether the director had made the correct decision in casting a young girl like her without makeup as Guenevere. However, his opinion changed after meeting her at the dinner since she looked stunning as she opened the door for him. Carlo, their son, was born in 1969 as a result of their romance. Following the birth of their kid, the couple divorced. After being apart for a long time, they gradually began to feel for one other again, and a spark of passion flared between them.

Vanessa, his wife, was previously married to Tony Richardson. Natasha and Joely Richardson, their two children, were born to them.
