She’s a long-headed woman but I
Love her just the same.
Miss Mizzou. Ha! True dat.
While the singing is by this girl, the actor in the costume is Maiwenn Le Besco, who is the ex-wife of Luc Besson. She just turned 40 and Luc is about 67-68 ish now. Luc fondly recalls when he met her and fell in love... when she was 11.
Some youtuber just put out a “10 things you didn’t know about Leon” video. Learn something new everyday.
And just so everyone knows I’m not just playing around with this guy’s character, she gave birth to his kid when she was 17.
