A lot of questions come to my mind regarding the last 5 years of Michael Sarrazin's life in Montreal.. Apparently he lived in Pointe St Charles during that period and amazingly nobody knew about it. Has anybody heard about Michael's last years of his life and exactly where he lived..

People in the PSC Theater community knew about it, but most people are respectful of others privacy.There were a few mentions of him over the years,as he contributed at times to the arts,.....He lived out west here ( I think Vancouver) before moving back to Montreal to be closer to his kids... There are a lot of actors & celebs that like to live or vacation in Canada ,because most people mind their own business. (and if people didn't ,at least from what I remember of growing up in Verdun/ would be courteously reminded with the phrase MYOFB),,,,,,,,,,,,hahahahaha
Even Michael Douglas & his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones have a place in the Laurentians,or something like that. & I am sure there are plenty more who like to escape the limelight at times . Even in the states ,you will find a lot of celebs have a place in NYC as that city ,offers annonimity for the most part,although they still have paparazzi bugging them from time to time.
My guess is; that type of life would be very easy to tire of ( not the money part) You can tell the ones that never want it to die off,they are usually the ones that haven't got one body part that is not full of plastic.........hahahah or have had their face pulled back over their head,with a real 'natural' looking facelift.
Considering how many actors & actress's there are,most remain normal private people,unless they have a movie to sell. ...................................................................................HF&RV
