He replaced Roger Vadim in Brigitte Bardot's affections in 1957 and was duly replaced himself by Sacha Distel the following year.

Plodding his way back to the top again with occasional roles in both French and Italian productions, Trintignant was "rediscovered" with the box office success of A Man and a Woman, released in 1966.

His 4th marriage was to Marriane Hoepfner, his last wife, in 2000 He suffered a leg injury from a motorbike accident in 2007.

His daughter, Marie Trintignant, died of cerebral edema in Neuilly, France on 1 August 2003, the victim of a domestic dispute. The 41-year-old actress had been in a coma since 27 July 2003 when, in a violent argument with her boyfriend in a Vilnius, Lithuania hotel room, she suffered multiple blows to the head.
