Olivier-Lassalle remembers the snow-covered mountains of Le Suquet (in Cannes) during the cold wave of February 1956, and Michel Drucker when he still was a sports journalist. She also remembers having worked for the actress Renee Saint-Cyr.

When asked for the secret of her longevity, she replied: "It's the Good Lord who protects me. Well, if you're not believer... I don't criticise, but religion is no laughing matter."
