photographer david bailey was introduced to catherine deneuve by roman polanski, towards the end of the filming of repulsion in 1965. polanski told him, "you're gonna love this french girl i'm making a film with". bailey replied, "no, she's short, and i don't like short women."  when polanski talked her into posing for playboy with bailey photographing her,  "catherine and i just hit it off", bailey recalled. they were married in august of 1965. 

bailey described their seven year marriage as "like trying to manage a maserati when you're used to a ford."  bailey would be deneuve's only husband...she has said, "marriage is obsolete & a trap." although her screen image is cold, bailey has said in interviews that she's not like that. "she's got a good sense of humor - likes a good dirty joke. i love her. we're still friends." 

they separated after 3 years & divorced after 7 years in 1972 (deneuve was already pregnant with marcello mastroianni's child).
