MALLE KEEPS RUNNING INTO WALL, WIFE SAYS

SHARE MALLE KEEPS RUNNING INTO WALL, WIFE SAYS

Film director Louis Malle is a klutz who throws himself into life with such zeal that he often lands on his head, says Malle's wife, actress Candice Bergen.

"He's always bleeding," Bergen said in the Oct. 30 issue of US magazine. "Once, in Paris, I met him at the airport during the time of all the terrorist attacks. Suddenly, I saw everybody in the airport was backing up, aghast, as Louis parted the crowd, with his head in bloody bandages."Everybody thought he'd been a victim of terrorism, but he'd just been running to get a luggage cart and hit his head on a pole," said Bergen.

Bergen said her 3-year-old daughter, Chloe, shares her father's metabolism and curiosity.
