The married couple Yves Montana and Simone Signore have been an example of true love and selfless devotion for many years. Talented, beautiful and famous spouses were admired by millions of fans around the world.
Simone was a beautiful, clever and successful actress who received an Oscar, so in order to risk her happiness, her husband needed a very serious temptation. And he appeared, in the form of a magnificent and not too burdened with moral principles, Marilyn Monroe.
Simone Signore was already an accomplished actress when she met Yves Montand. From the outside, it seemed that they were completely unsuited to each other — an educated and refined Parisian woman who knows several languages and the son of an Italian peasant, a novice chansonnier. But it was true love and there was nothing to be done about it.
Before they tied the knot, they talked for only four days. Iv and Simone wandered around Paris, drank wine and coffee in small cafes, stood on the Seine embankment. On the fifth day, they already knew that they could not live without each other and Yves made an offer, which Simone accepted.
Signore gave herself to her man completely — she decided that first of all she would be a wife, and only then an actress. Filming, soirees and social activities - everything was postponed indefinitely. Simone left everything for a while and went on all tours with her husband. She tried to stay in the shadow of Montana, as much as possible, so that he would not have a complex next to a more successful wife.
The woman had a beneficial effect on Iva Montana, who became not only more successful every year, but also more charming. At the same time, in family life, the artist was far from a gift — he was distinguished by authoritarianism and unpredictability. Simone often got hurt by her husband, but in general their marriage could be called happy.
Marilyn became such friends with Yves that when she was offered a role in the movie "Let's make Love", she agreed only on condition that her shooting partners would be Montan. Simone was glad that her husband would star in a film that was doomed to success and saw nothing wrong with her husband's friendship with a movie star.But one day Simone went to shoot another movie in Italy, and Miller - on business in New York and Montand with Marilyn were left alone. They say that Monroe acted decisively — she showed up at home to Willow in one mink fur coat on a naked body. Their secret affair lasted while the film was being shot, and immediately ended, but Simone found out about it, which made the woman infinitely unhappy. He suffered because of his weakness and Montan.
So the man later told about his condition. The story of her husband's infidelity haunted Signora all her life — she was constantly asked if she knew about her husband's affair with a friend and what she felt. Some went even further and almost told the actress to her face that her husband preferred a fresher blonde to her.
And for Marilyn Monroe, a fleeting romance with Yves Montand was just one of many in her short but eventful life. This incident meant nothing to her and left no trace in her soul. But for Simone and Yves, this betrayal was a serious blow and their happiness was never as complete as before.
Simone Signore, who selflessly loved her husband and trusted him in everything, was literally crushed by his betrayal. In the last years of her life, the woman abused alcohol and left this world in her seventh decade. Yves Montand outlived his love for six years and passed away right on the set, struck by a heart attack.
