Jean Marais


French actor with rugged handsome features who often played athletic roles and became one of France's most durable screen heroes from his 1941 debut in "Le Pavilllon Brule." In 1947, he played in the noted film "Beauty and the Beast."

Twice rejected from France's top drama schools after dropping out of school at 16, Marais went on to make 75 films and become one of the nation's most popular movie stars, thanks to the help of Jean Cocteau in getting started. The two met in 1937 when Marais was working as an apprentice photographer. With an immediate attraction, the two became inseparable lovers until Cocteau's death in 1963. Marais had one adopted son, Serge.

He published several books about his life. A serious painter, he continued to paint throughout his entire life and had a show of his art works in 1995.

Hospitalized with malnutrition in June, Marais died 8 November 1998, age 84.
